The 20 Best Villains From Non-Comic Book Movies Ranked

You ever notice that there aren't that many articles breaking down the best heroes in cinematic history? That's because, at some basic level, heroes are all similar: They all have the same noble inclinations and can usually be counted on to do the right thing. Otherwise, they wouldn't be heroes. Villains, on the other hand, are deliciously varied; every antagonist is evil in their own unique way. The baddies we list here run the gamut from the ultimately redeemable to completely unrepentant, fro...

The 15 Best Anthony Hopkins Roles Ranked

The 15 Best Anthony Hopkins Roles Ranked Sir Anthony Hopkins isn't a man that requires much introduction. He's one of the finest actors of his generation, breaking into the mainstream with his portrayal of the villainous Hannibal Lecter. However, his talent was noticed decades before "Silence of the Lambs," and he shined in roles like Richard the Lionheart and the paradoxical Captain Bligh. What makes Hopkins special isn't pretension or devotion to his craft, though. He's simply a consummate pro...

Disney’s underrated take on The Hunchback of Notre Dame turns 25 this month, but he doesn’t look a day over 20!

‘Clarice’ to End After One Season on CBS, Maybe the Lambs Will Stop Screaming

The lambs may finally stop screaming. Clarice will reportedly end after just one season on CBS, after talks stalled on the Silence of the Lambs prequel’s planned move from CBS to Paramount+. Now, it seems that move has been nixed, and Clarice is doomed to be thrown at the bottom of a hole alongside so many other one-season shows. Deadline reports that Clarice will end after one season, after negotiations between Paramount+ and co-producer MGM, which would have moved the series to the streame...

The 1978 Project: Arbitrary Awards

The 1978 Project edition of the Kaedrin Movie Awards were finished off last week. The idea is to recognize aspects of films that aren’t reflected in more traditional awards or other praise like a Top 10 list. However, any awards system will fail to capture all the nuances and complexity available; hence the Arbitrary Awards, an opportunity to commend movies that are weird or flawed in ways that don’t conform to normal standards. A few of these “awards” have become an annual tradition, but most a...

David Bowie was slated to play Count Robert Lecter on NBC's Hannibal

Here's a bit of Bowie trivia of which I was unaware. One character from the novels who didn't appear in the Hannibal series is the title character's uncle Count Robert Lecter, who first appeared in Hannibal Rising. While Robert in the novel is short-lived and ultimately doesn't play a major role, showrunner Bryan Fuller had big plans for the Count on Hannibal. — Read the rest

‘The Silence of the Lambs’ at 30: How the Influential Thriller Forged Empathy Through Clarice Starling’s Eyes

Last night, CBS viewers said hello to Clarice, a new network procedural that serves as a sequel to The Silence of the Lambs. Rebecca Breeds is the latest actress to embody Clarice Starling, the courageous FBI agent who faced off with two serial killers in one watershed 1991 thriller. One killer shall have to remain nameless. Clarice’s cousins, however, are numerous and known by plenty of other names. When Jodie Foster originated the role three decades ago, she inspired a whole generation of scr...

‘Clarice’ Trailer: The ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Story Continues on CBS

The Silence of the Lambs now has a direct sequel – in TV show form. The upcoming CBS series Clarice hopes to be an immediate follow-up to Jonathan Demme’s Oscar-winning thriller, which means it will have absolutely nothing to do with Hannibal Lecter. As you’ll recall, Hannibal escapes at the end of Silence, and goes into hiding for years. On top of that, the rights to Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter books are a bit of a mess, which means the folks behind Clarice can’t even mention Lecter. Instea...

Clarice: Silence of the Lambs Sequel Series Can’t Feature Hannibal Lecter

Clarice: Silence of the Lambs Sequel Series Can’t Feature Hannibal Lecter Since it was announced that CBS was developing a sequel series to The Silence of the Lambs, many were wondering if the novel and the film’s most iconic character Hannibal Lecter would also be making an appearance in Clarice. However, in a recent interview with EW, creator Alex Kurtzman has confirmed that the upcoming series won’t be able to feature the genius serial killer or even mention him by name due to legalities ...

‘Clarice’ Won’t Be Able to Mention (Let Alone Feature) Hannibal Lecter

Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling are two characters who are inextricably linked together in pop culture. But not in the upcoming CBS series Clarice, a sequel to the classic horror movie The Silence of the Lambs, which introduced the intrepid FBI agent in training. Because of confusing rights issues, any mention of Hannibal Lecter has been essentially banned from the series. Even if The Silence of the Lambs gave us the great dynamic between Hannibal and Clarice — as played ineffably by An...

‘Clarice’ Trailer: The ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Sequel Series Teases the Return of Clarice Starling

Nearly 20 years after she was last seen onscreen, Clarice Starling is back. The FBI agent introduced in Thomas Harris’ 1988 novel The Silence of the Lambs was the blueprint for many characters across the spectrum of popular culture — from Dana Scully to Emily Blunt’s rookie agent in Sicario. But despite the abundant adaptations of Hannibal Lecter in both TV and film, Clarice Starling herself hasn’t been seen onscreen since 2001’s Hannibal. That will change with CBS’ upcoming crime drama Clarice...

The Silence Of The Lambs – The Criterion Collection Blu-ray

I’m a really big fan of Jonathan Demme’s Silence Of The Lambs film, so when there was a nice price drop recently on the Criterion Collection’s release on Amazon I took the opportunity to pick it up ( together with Brian De Palma’s Blow Out and Cold War, both of which I might post pictures later on ). I actually already have Silence Of The Lambs on an earlier blu-ray release, but the surplus of excellent supplementary materials and the 4K remaster made me decide it was worth a double-dip ( I ...

NBC Wanted Either John Cusack or Hugh Grant to Play ‘Hannibal’ Instead of Mads Mikkelsen

Hannibal is one of the best shows of the 21st century. A daring, strange, artistic blend of horror, lust, and fine dining, the Bryan Fuller series inspired by the books of Thomas Harris was so good that it was almost hard to believe it was a real network show. On top of all that, the series version of Hannibal Lecter, as played memorably by Mads Mikkelsen, became just as striking as Anthony Hopkins’ take on the character. But according to Fuller, Mikkelsen’s take on the cannibal psychiatrist al...

‘Clarice’ TV Series is Set in 1993, After Events of ‘Silence of the Lambs’

Tyler. New details about the show come with this news, revealing the series is set after the events of Silence of the Lambs, making it a sequel series. When Hannibal was first announced as a TV series, I was skeptical. But Bryan Fuller’s weird, disturbing, beautiful...

Anaheim Ducks Jersey History

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. They made two Stanley Cup finals in four seasons, taking the New Jersey Devils to seven games in 2003 before winning it all in 2007, at the expense of the Ottawa Senators. Paul Kariya, one of the greatest players in franchise history, wearing the beloved sweater...

Todd Phillips’  Joker  made waves last year for not only being the most profitable R-rated movie ever made but for possibly redefining the comic book genre. Led by Joaquin Phoenix’s powerhouse Oscar-winning performance as the titular character,  Joker  resembles more a character study on mental illness and societal isolation than an action-packed superhero film.
