Quid Pro Quo: The Three-Act Structure of a Thrilling Scene from The Silence of the Lambs

Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs is one of the finest psychological thrillers ever made. In the episode of the always-illuminating Lessons from the Screenplay, the team analyzes a scene from the film with Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling that demonstrates how effective scenes follow the same three act structure as entire movies/books/stories do. The Lessons team also did a podcast episode about the differences between the screenplay for the film and the book that inspired it. ...

I Got My New Favorite Skincare Item in Japan, but It's Available on Amazon For $6

One of the many reasons I had always wanted to go to Japan was the plethora of unique products sold there that were unlike anything found in the United States. While I had heavily researched prior to shopping in Tokyo, there were more than a handful of beauty items (and foods, for that matter) I had no idea existed. Among the suitcase full of souvenirs I brought home was a fairly cheap product that I've been using each and every time I sheet mask: the Daiso Reusable Silicone Moisturizing Mask (...

7 Tips On How To Make Your Antagonist More Prominent

This article is by Erica Sunarjo. It’s a common mistake believing that writing is a simple, straightforward process. People usually imagine writers sitting in front of their laptops and writing what comes to their minds at the moment, as their inspiration takes over. The truth is writing a piece of work takes a lot of planning, correcting, adding, and rewriting. Everything needs to be planned out to the smallest detail, in order for the work to be believable and gripping. Same goes for the char...

Breaking news: the hot young Alfred show is still happening, and hot young Alfred has been found. Jack Bannon, who appeared in The Imitation Game and on Ripper Street, will play the future butler in Pennyworth, a new EPIX series.

Kit of the Day – Just Ducky

  The Anaheim Ducks have, by and large, been blessed when it comes to National Hockey League expansion teams. Stars like Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne graced their roster – then composed of Mighty Ducks – early on in their existence.

Bryan Fuller, wyd? Everybody loves Bryan Fuller, but the man apparently can’t hold down a job. Fuller has just jumped ship on yet another show: The Vampire Chronicles TV series.

The 10 Best Horror Movie Franchises

The 10 Best Horror Movie Franchises Before horror movies rose in popularity again for their self-contained stories and independent nature, they were often mocked for their attempts to set up sequels that would be more outlandish and extreme than its predecessor. Though some memorable franchises suffered from sequel-itis, they still have earned their spots on the best of all time thanks to either their original films or their primary characters. Let’s take a look back at the 10 best horror fra...

Award-worthy Japanese food is at Asanebo in Studio City

Back in 2008, the last year the Guide Michelin rated restaurants in Los Angeles (proclaiming afterward that this is not a serous city for food and that the guide would be discontinued, thereby insulting a whole city in one fell swoop), 18 restaurants earned stars. Of those 18, four were Japanese: the seriously expensive Urasawa in Beverly Hills, the nearby Matsuhisa, Mori Sushi in West L.A., and right here in the Valley, the casual Asanebo, situated in the back of a mini-mall with valet parking....

Double Dip Directing: 15 Directors Who Released Two Movies in One Year

Double Dip Directing: 15 Directors Who Released Two Movies in One Year No one can deny the sheer amount of difficulty that goes into crafting a film. The director is essentially responsible for every single detail involved, which is why they are either heavily praised for phenomenal work or utterly condemned when it doesn’t work.

‘The Alienist’ Should Please ‘Penny Dreadful’ and ‘Hannibal’ Fans

When The Alienist was first published in 1994, author Caleb Carr said, “I was always aware that if done correctly, this could end up being a great movie.” Well, we’ll never know if a great movie could’ve been made from this material, and not for lack of trying. Paramount Pictures bought the movie rights before publication in 1993, but behind-the-scenes squabbles about budget and scripts kept The Alienist from the big screen for more than two decades. Now Carr’s serial killer novel finds new lif...

Happiness, Desire, and the Key to Life

One of the most fundamental things that define every human being is desire. We all desire something and we are all defined, for the most part, by that which we desire. In fact, our desires define us more than any other aspect of our lives. Our very days are filled with desires, starting with the sunrise: We desire a glass of water in the morning. We desire a shower. We desire food. We desire sex. Everyone has certain desires that they work towards fulfilling each day. When you drive down the...

6WH: The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs has slowly but surely established itself as one of my favorite movies and it's something I've rewatched far more than I would have expected when I first saw it (around 25 years ago, sheesh). Despite loving the movie, I had never read Thomas Harris' novel until recently. Last week, I looked at John Carpenter's adaptation of Stephen King's novel Christine, a typical instance of the book is better than the movie even if the movie is worthwhile on its own. This time around, ...

The former Hannibal showrunner has confirmed that “conversations” have begun around reviving Hannibal for a potential fourth season after NBC canceled the series after its third season in 2015.

Cool Stuff: Blitzway’s Hannibal Lecter Statues Just Need a Nice Chianti

Since the classic thriller Silence of the Lambs isn’t exactly the kind of movie that’s friendly to creating merchandise to commemorate it, there have been very few attempts to bring Hannibal Lecter to the shelves of fans. While there have been attempts by NECA to create a few different detailed figures, most Hannibal Lecter collectibles have been unimpressive. But one company is about to give fans the cannibal collectible they deserve. Blitzway, the same company behind the impressive sixth scal...

LOL: ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Recut as a Romantic Comedy

The Silence of the Lambs is an unsettling thriller for a number of reasons. Not only is Buffalo Bill a horrifying psychopath, but perhaps more unnerving is the relationship that builds between FBI agent Clarice Starling and Dr. Hannibal Lecter, one that feels like it’s on the verge of being uncomfortably erotic. But what if there was a way to make that element of the movie a little less creepy, perhaps even charming? The folks at CineFix put together a trailer remix of The Silence of the Lambs ...
