I don't think Hannibal Rising is as bad a movie as it's made out to be. Sure, it's not great, but I've certainly seen worse.

Posted this in another thread, but I feel it's more relevant here.

I confess I have no idea how Brett Ratner made a movie as good as Red Dragon.

I think there's a good director in Brett Ratner struggling to come out. He just chooses poor materials to direct. His work in X Men Last Stand was good, it was a good transition from what Singer did, mimicking his style. The problems were in the script.

I read Fight Club after seeing the movie. It's funny that Chuck Palahniuk says he prefers the movie's ending, but I prefer his.

I've always wondered the same thing. You look at Ratner's filmography and you have to think "which one of these is not like the others?"

I think Ghostbusters II is highly underrated and I love it just as much as the original. I'm always crushed to see it disliked as much as it is.

Red Dragon was not a humorous movie, that's why. I honestly think Ratner can do fine with material like that, but it's just that his humor is so cliche.

Right, I agree. Although I do like Rush Hour 2.

Rush Hour 2 is alright. Not as bad as most make it out to be. But Rush Hour one is miles better.

Right. Is the one that started all, for sure. But I do believe 2 is a good example of a sequel done right. Not perfectly, but correctly.

Rush Hour 2 was a very successful film, dont see how saying it was 'alright' is unpopular opinion. Everyone I know loves the movie

I personally think Red Dragon is kind of "meh".

The Silence of the Lambs is miles better, and I think Hannibal is better too.

That Hannibal opinion is quite unpopular.

Obviously Silence of the Lambs is by far the best one. I think most of Hannibal's first half is very good (upto the death of the inspector) and then it kinda falls downhill and stays downhill when Lecter makes it to the US. It just relied too much on grotesqueness for my taste and seemed way too over the top and bizarre for the sake of being over the top and bizarre. I think this is mostly a problem with the source material, not the actual filmmaking.

On the contrary, it's an incredibly well made film and ASTOUNDINGLY beautiful. I can't think of many films where Italy looks THAT beautiful on screen. And the performances are killer. Especially Hopkins, Oldman and Lioatta.

Basically, I wish Ridley Scott was given a better script to work with, because he definitely has the right eye for the material - even if it is very different from Demme's approach.

It almost makes me cry that Gary Oldman was in a Hannibal Lector movie and it was a bad one. That guy's such a great actor and he deserves to be in a better Hannibal movie than that. Also, how accurate is it to the book? I'm reading Silence of the Lambs now and was curious if I should try that and see if they butchered it on film or if it's bad too.

My only problem with Hannibal is Clarice getting the world record for shooting bad guys, or whatever nonsense that was. It seemed like such an odd, unnecessary thing to include in the film. In fact, that entire shootout in the beginning was just pointless. Since when did Starling become an action hero? I'd much rather have seen her taking down another serial killer in the opening scenes, or something similar.

Other than that, I think Hannibal is a fine film. Red Dragon is damn good and Silence of the Lambs is my favorite film of all time.

I roll my eyes every time. That line was kinda painful. Just some nonsense to make the audience think Clarice is more of a loose cannon? Garbage.

Not at all unpopular, but while we're on the subject, Hopkins best performance of Lecter was definitely Silence of the Lambs. Hopkins kinda phoned it in from then on. Maybe it was Demme that brought it out of Hopkins, but I never felt like we got the same Lecter in the other films.

Best use of the thread right here because this is one unpopular opinion.

i loved the first transformers movie when it came out. Its still my favorite one by far. I could do without shia but i loved all the other humans. Especially anthony anderson and the blonde girl. And optimus was the coolest in that first movie. The next two took the human "humor" too far.
