I have them both, just not the shelf Wink I used to have the updated SOTL, but I never replaced it after it was stolen. Even though it's non-anamorphic I still prefer the Criterion transfer because the colours are more natural.

I'd suggest the Criterion just for the excellent commentary track and the MGM two-disc SE for the presentation and other extras since the Criterion disc isn't anamorphic. The AB Limited Edition of Manhunter is nice all around.

Anybody enjoy Hannibal? i find myself reaching for that on the shelf more than any other Lector movie.
Milk is better than cheese.  Cheese is a remake of milk.  Cheese is made so they could make money off people who want to eat milk.

Yes!  250 posts!
Manhunter is better than Red Dragon.  Red Dragon is a remake of Manhunter.  Red Dragon was made so they could make more money off of Anthony Hopkins more popular take on Hannibal
Red Dragon is s**t. Manhunter is a much, much better film. It and Silence are the only decent films in the series.

red dragon and manhunter are pertty much the same thing but hopkins does not play in manhunter brian cox does
If you wanna watch them using the correct timeline though, i think it's:

Hannibal Rising
Red Dragon/Manhunter
Silence of the Lambs
Hannibal

Personally i prefer Manhunter over Red Dragon. Though, Hopkins is in Red Dragon so i highly recommend you to see that one too.
I'd say watch them in the order in which they were being released except not seeing Manhunter first...

So that's...

Silence of the Lambs
Hannibal
Red Dragon
Manhunter
Hannibal Rising

At lease that's what I did but I have not seen Hannibal Rising.

I'd say see Red Dragon before Manhunter because I think it's a better adaptation of Thomas Harris's novel and you would wanna see a continuity Hopkin's Lecter before switching to Brian Cox and Gaspard Ulliel impersonations.
