Thirty Years? Where Has the Time Gone?



I just learned the movie “Spaceballs” came out three decades ago. That doesn’t seem possible. I missed seeing it until well after the theatrical release and wish some local cinema would screen it today.

In lieu of that I may have to pop in the DVD tonight. The only Mel Brooks movie I like better would have to be “Young Frankenstein” for the horror theme and incredible cast.

But it doesn’t feature John Candy. I still miss him. What a mensch with an incredible gift for making audiences smile and laugh.


Do you have a favorite John Candy role? If you're not a fan, please don't tell me. ~grin~ Just say you can't pick a favorite .

  1. It is a tie between Uncle Buck and his small part in Home Alone :)

  2. I never really *got* Spaceballs. I didn't find it funny. I was probably dragged to it kicking and screaming, too. (Other movies I was dragged to: Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark...)

    1. Interesting. Honestly, I guess most of my movie tastes align more with males.

  3. 30 yrs? Wow....that is just unreal. I am like you, where did all the time go...and so FAST. I remember when the last Star Wars came out, I had to take my grandson to see it since I saw the very first one when it came out at the drive in 1977 when I was 17, 40 yrs ago.

    1. How neat! I miss drive-in theaters sometimes, though not many contemporary movies make me want to leave the house. A favorite memory was seeing "Lost Boys" and actually watching it again after the second feature finished.

  4. Does that ever bring back the memories. I'm going to have to rent it again. I miss John Candy too.
