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.
“The older I get, the more I realize how rare it is to meet a kindred spirit.”
My top 10 movies with a theme about travel, in alphabetical order:
- Before Sunrise
- Lost In Translation
- Pot Luck
- Stealing Beauty
- Thelma & Louise
- The Darjeeling Limited
- The Motorcycle Diaries
- The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
- Until The End Of The World
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.
