Review: Hannibal Says Goodbye

19 hours ago | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

I woke up at 4:39 this morning, thinking of Hannibal, the man, the series, and the serial killer, awash in blood and viscera. Through three seasons of Hannibal, Mads Mikkelsen has redefined the character created by novelist Thomas Harris. The serial killer made an impressive debut in Red Dragon, first published in 1981. He was a cold-blooded homicidal maniac who gave FBI profiler Will Graham nightmares, in part because Hannibal tried to kill him, savagely. As downplayed by Brian Cox in Michael Mann's version, Manhunter (1986), he's chiefly memorable for the reaction he provokes in Graham (William L. Petersen), prompting him to race out of the prison where he's just interviewed him. Later, in Harris' The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal becomes a much more...

Pour a Glass of Chianti for This Supercut of the 3 Portrayals of Hannibal and Will’s Relationship and Because It’s Friday

28 August 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As Hannibal closes out its run on NBC tomorrow night, it also puts the six-episode Red Dragon arc to rest. The story line comes from Thomas Harris's novel Red Dragon, where FBI agent Will Graham tries to catch the serial killer by enlisting the help of another — one Dr. Hannibal Lecter. With Bryan Fuller's interpretation, there have now been three major screen adaptations of the book, including Michael Mann's Manhunter and Brett Ratner's Red Dragon. In the former, William Petersen and Brian Cox play Will and Hannibal, and in the latter, it's Edward Norton and Anthony Hopkins. Video editor Matthew Morettini found that the dialogue in each one remained remarkably faithful to Harris's book, which allowed him to seamlessly re-create the scene where Will first approaches Dr. Lecter to ask for his help. The edit is remarkable, and it allows you to see the distinct variations in each interpretation. »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1986

26 August 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...

A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.

As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »

The first trailer for ‘Manhattan’ Season Two deals with secrets

19 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wgn America’s nuclear bomb development period drama Manhattan is poised to return for a second season later this year with some major new additions to the cast.

Created by Masters of Sex scribe Sam Shaw, the show’s second season now has its first trailer. Manhattan’s second season will see John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, and Alexia Fast joined by William Petersen and Neve Campbell.

The show is set in 1943 and is a dramatised version of the goings-on of The Manhattan Project, real-life experiment by the Us government where the country’s top scientists were quarantined in a desert facility in Los Alamos, New Mexico, and tasked with making feasible a nuclear bomb to use in the then-ongoing World War II.

The trailer itself steers clear of the science behind the bomb, focusing instead on the toll the project is taking on the individuals and their relationships, while »

18 August 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wgn America has released its first trailer for the second season of its period drama series “Manhattan.”

Following its first season, the trailer hints that the stakes are high for characters in 1940s Los Alamos, N.M., during the development of nuclear weapons. ​The trailer also provides a first-look at new cast members William Petersen (“CSI”) as Col.

Mad Max: The Wastelands

Though there's demand for it, talk of a sequel to "Mad Max: Fury Road" remains premature at this point it would seem. Though having already scored a rumored title - "Mad Max: The Wasteland" - "Fury Road" star Charlize Theron did not seem to know anything about another 'Max' film when asked about it this week.

Speaking with USA Today, Theron says: "What's Wasteland? This is all news to me. I have not heard anything like that."

He Ran All the Way | Blu-ray Review

4 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A prototype of what would come to be familiarly known as the home invasion thriller, 1951’s He Ran All the Way is also an important artifact from the Huac witch hunt during Joseph McCarthy’s pillaging of the entertainment industry. Director John Berry would go uncredited for this and his next several features due to his reputation as a Communist sympathizer, eventually leading him to France for the remainder of the decade.

The film was based on a novel by a more famous blacklisted alumnus, Dalton Trumbo, writing under the pseudonym Sam Ross, also adapting the screenplay. Sadly, the film is also the last performance from 40’s icon John Garfield, who died in 1952 from coronary thrombosis, his health woes credited to his blacklisting following his refusal to name names while testifying in front of Huac, a tragedy co-star Shelley Winters vocalized bitterly for years to come. Though these intense tidbits »

Hannibal Season 3 – Episode 9 Review

3 August 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews the ninth episode of Hannibal season 3…

Hannibal’s latest episode, ‘And The Woman Clothed With The Sun’, did not waste any time as it opened right up with Will going to Hannibal for information. From there, the rest of the story moved quickly without sacrificing character development or significant plot points.

It was very satisfying to finally see Will and Hannibal’s traditional relationship play out on the show. Their new relationship dynamic was on full display as Will refused to get too comfortable with Hannibal, referring to him as Dr. Lecter throughout their conversations. Hannibal, on the other hand, kept prodding and taunting Will for information on his personal life to get under his skin. While he’s still clearly bitter towards Will, it seems like he was genuine when he told him to stay away from the Tooth Fairy case.

On that note, we discovered »
