Things That Make Me Die Inside (Vol. 12)

Please, make the lambs stop screaming! No more Hannibal Lecter movies! The prequel Hannibal Rising is due out next week, on Feb. 9, so I’ll reserve judgment on that film. But producer Dino de Laurentiis has told MTV News that he’s already considering another Chiantifest. And he even suggested that, in this hypothetical umpteenth movie in the franchise, our young flesh-eater may get lucky with a more mature female character (played in Hannibal Rising by Gong Li)—ewww.

Good God. First of all, I don’t want to see Hannibal Lecter getting laid. Second, while Manhunter and The Silence of the Lambs were revelatory experiences, things started to go downhill with Hannibal. And, really, nobody—not even Brett Ratner’s mom—was asking for Red Dragon. So when are they gonna stop? What’ll be next, a 3-D version? Remember: It happened to Jaws.

    NEVER put Gong li and the word EWWWW in a sentence together, She is a goddess.

    Ok, for the record, Red Dragon was a pretty good movie. I rad the book years ago and when i saw Manhunter I was so disappointed. But the movie Red Dragon is true to the book, both in name and feel, and it works more cinematically than Manhunter. Don’t get me wrong, i love me some Michael Mann, I just wasn’t all about his William Peterson-starring clunker. But on a final note, I agree, please let the Hannibal movies stop.

    Seriously, if people didn’t know Brett Ratner had directed “Red Dragon” there wouldn’t be a fraction of the hate.

  • Jasper

    Frar couldn’t agree more. But as much as I love her and the actor playing Hannibal whose name escapes me. I think this needs to be the last one.
    Other things that need to be put down:
    The View (the show not the band)
    Joan Rivers
    Sienna Miller
    Justin Timberlake
    Any celebrity currently or recently in rehab (yes that’s you Lindsay and Isiah)
    Little Miss Sunshine
    Merging of celebrity couple names (although I’m partial to Gyllenhaard)
    ……….sorry what was the question?

  • Jasper

    Btw no more Indiana Jones movies, or Jurassic Parks

  • mike

    The studios just need to lay off sequels. Overmilking every cash cow ruins the herd.
    I agree with Jasper’s list except for Justin Timberlake. He can come out of the vault once a year for SNL.

  • Deb

    I agree. Much of hollywood is squeezing every last dollar with sequel mania. Let’s stop with the horror movie sequel craze: Saws, Chucky’s, Freddy and Jason, and let’s not forget Mike Myers. Let’s infuse some new blood into that tired old franchise.

    I thought Hannibal was okay, if only for helping to revive Ray Liotta’s career. Besides (SPOILER) it was fun to watch the Ray Liotta eat his own brain and the kid on the plane eat a piece of it at the end, and I had the pleasure of seeing the movie in the Union Station movie theater (here in DC), where part of the movie was filmed.

    I have a rule. The only sequels i will ever watch are the Godfather 2 and Superhero movies (for some reason i’m okay with those sequels.) but no sequels for anything else, no saw 2 or 3, no more lechter movies… after silence of the lambs. you know what, i like it that way, I save a lot of time on mediocrity.

    The Silence of the Lambs is a classic. It still creeps me out. Hannibal was such a disappointment that I didn’t even bother with Red Dragon and I’m not going to bother with Hannibal Rising.

  • No More!

    I agree no more hannibal movies! Enough already! I’d even say no more prequels. They never live up to the original.

  • Jennifer
