I love "Silence" but they should have Mr Hopkins do a cameo for the "Young Hannibal" movie
Guys, come on!  A Lion in Winter, The Elephant Man, Howard's End, Remains of the Day, Dracula, Shadowlands, Titus, even Zorro for crying out loud!  And that's on top of the Hannibal trilogy.  Anthony Hopkins is a magnificent actor.  
Yeah. Hopkins is useless. What's he ever done that's good. Not fit to lick Cox's boots. Acts like he's never acted before.
Manhunter rules. Brian Cox owns Hopkins.
Silence of the Lambs.

After that, in my opinion, it almost felt like Anthony Hopkins was doing a characteration of himself playing an iconic figure.
The need to be live up to a uberlegend was played to hard core.
I love Hannibal as a peice of over stylized freak show. Thought it was super entertaining and fun. Silence is the only of the films that is a truely great film.

I have to agree with Gabe except I also thought that Hannibal sucked as well....

P.S. I wrote "which of 3" couse the old Red Dragon movie "Manhunter" was not a part of trylogi with Hopkins as Lecter.


What was your favorite?  I favor the original.
1. Silence of the Lambs
2. Hannibal

Read an interview with Anthony Hopkins in which he said that Red Dragon was his personal favourite.

Mine is Silence of the lambs.

Can't believe there is another Lector movie on the wat this year 'the teenage years'!
Red Dragon
Silence Of The Lambs
Hannibal

Same thing when I saw it the first time...

I was shivered when came out of my house going for a meal...oh boy!! oh boy!!
I really liked Red Dragon! I think the combination of Norton and Hopkins is just the right ingredient, and Kaitel is always a good supporting actor to have. Anyway, I havn't seen Manhunter, but I think Red Dragon is just a little behind Silence of the Lambs.

Silence of the lambs
Manhunter
Red Dragon (Though a totally unnecessary remake of Manhunter with the novel's correct title)
Hannibal
I have huge problems with Hannibal (a plot that goes nowhere, style over substance...), yet I did find it far more memorable than Red Dragon.
no doubt...The Silence of the Lambs Happy

Red Dragon did well...

Hannibal is the worst one out of da lot...why Julianne?!?!

Manhunter is the 3rd best for all...
I can't imagine that Silence of the Lambs would not top everyone's list of these movies.  After all, it is one of only 3 movies, to win best actor, best actress, best director, best picture, and best adapted screenplay.  Easily one of the best movies made in the 90s.  The other two are on par with each other.  I know some hate Hannibal, but after reading the book and being so disappointed with the book, I thought the movie was much better.
1. Silence of the Lambs
2. Red Dragon
