October 8: Young Frankenstein. Rating: 5/5 (Originally 5/5). Original Comment: A humorous continuation of the Frankenstein story. Only Gene Wilder could create a portrayal of Dr. Frankenstein that is simultaneously hilarious and horrifying. Igor’s eyes will haunt me in my dreams. Update: Besides the obvious jokes and gags meant to make people laugh, there is a lot of understated humor in this movie. Timing, tone, and facial expressions clearly mark the work of experienced, professional comedic actors, and I spent a good portion of the movie trying to imagine what Hollywood talent could play Frankenstein in a remake. I could think of no one who would be competent to fill Wilder’s shoes. He was one of a kind.
