Still say X2 and Hulk beat the c**p out of ANY of the Superman films every day of the week. Despite some questionable tactics, Singer got the job done on the X-men films.

What exactly, from a critical standpoint, is wrong with Hannibal? Is it too silly? Too Gory? I've yet to read a convincing indictment of the film beyond the usual "It sucks".

I liked Hannibal myself; with some of the changes made from the novel to screenplay, it's one of the rare cases where the film turns out better than the book. Red Dragon was okay and a serviceable thriller, but Ratner didn't put any style in it to make it stand out from all of the other cookie-cutter, serial killer movies out there and most of the performances are too bland and labored.

I'll agree with Matt here.  I remembered being very psyched when Hannibal (the book) was released.  I read it with a few days of being released and was shocked about how I\'ll conceived the novel was considering the time lapsed from Silence of the Lamb (nearly 10 years)!  Hannibal, the film, was one of the rare cases of the movie being better than the book.  Then again, that isn't really saying much seeing how bad the book was.

I really liked Red Dragon.  I can't really pinpoint a reason why.  Maybe I just really liked Ralph Fiennes as Dolorhide.  I think this movie suceeded despite Rattner due to some really good actors.

Has anyone seen any Sentinals in this one? I had heard that they were trying to do some CGI tricks to put them in but I didnt know if it was just a nasty rumor

Wasn't that Man-Thing, the Marvel character? (or did I miss something beyond that silliness?)
That said, the Swamp Thing TV show (live action) was quite good and fairly close to being in keeping with... well the Len Wein/Bernie Wrightson Swampy. Alan Moore's wouldn't translate too well.


You're right, it was Man-Thing...and man was that thing awful!! LOL
