Box Set Completed: Hannibal Lecter

For completion purposes, I also watched Manhunter and Hannibal Rising.

I’ve always loved The Silence Of The Lambs, ever since I saw it at the cinema way back in 1991. This remains the stand out movie in the series.

I must admit to preferring Red Dragon over Manhunter (which I enjoyed).

Hannibal’s definitely the middle child here. Hannibal Rising was a disappointment.

Hannibal Lecter’s still one of my favourite villains and I’m sure I’ll watch most of these, if not all, relatively soon.

Box Set Completed: Carry On


I only have myself to blame, really. I bought the box set as a Christmas present for OH.

As per usual, we set ourselves with the task of working our way through. Literally. This was hard work.

I really struggled with many of the titles contained within. Anachronistic was a recurring word that sprung to mind during the year and a half it took us to watch them all. We even obtained Carry On Columbus for completion purposes (you live and you learn, I guess) which was atrocious.

Apart from a couple of titles, namely Don’t Lose Your Head and Screaming, I doubt I’ll watch this again.
