Anyway, Anthony Hopkins talking about eating a human liver with fava beans is high-quality cinema. He rode the Hannibal Lecter train for a few more sequels (and don't forget that Silence was not the first appearance for the character), but it was Jonathan Demme's iteration that took these pulp minerals and smelted them into gold. This masterpiece recently started streaming for free on Amazon Prime, so watch it again. It's even better than you remember.
Mel Brooks' last truly great film (fight me, Life Stinks stans!), Spaceballs has more laughs than any Star Wars film, if you don't count the "I hate sand" moment from Attack Of The Clones. (Not even Brooks could poke fun at dialogue like that.)
Newly streaming for nary an extra space buck on Amazon Prime, the tale of Lone Starr and Barf rescuing Princess Vespa from Dark Helmet and Colonel Sanderz is ripe for rediscovery. Of note, the biggest laugh in the entire picture is delivered by Tim Russ, who would later find notoriety elsewhere in the galaxy as Tuvok on Star Trek: Voyager. (And, oh yes, Brooks extends some japes at that franchise too. Who can forget "Snotty beamed me twice last night. It was wonderful!")
Shields up! Incoming factoid! The reason we never got to play with Spaceballs action figures (thus keeping kids from doing Joan Rivers impressions on the playground for years) was that George Lucas, who could have been a jerk and nixed the whole project, specifically asked Brooks not to make them. This even though Brooks' character, Yogurt, makes such a big deal about "merchandising! merchandising! Where the real money from the movie is made!" Lucas was apparently worried that little plastic Bill Pullmans, Rick Moranises, Daphne Zunigas, and John Candys would look too much like products from his own line. Brooks didn't fight it.
