THE METAMORPHOSIS OF A KILLER: THE HANNIBAL LECTER MOVIES



Not for the weak of heart …

  • Will Graham – FBI Profiler
  • Hannibal Lector – Cannibalistic Serial Killer
  • The Tooth Fairy – An Avid Admirer of Lecter

The Chronological Order of the Movies 

  • Hannibal Rising
  • Red Dragon or Manhunter
  • The Silence of the Lambs
  • Hannibal


Lead Profiler Will Graham and the FBI are in a catch-me-if-you-can game with the serial killers.

Sometimes the hardest killer to catch is the one already in prison?

I haven’t read the books… but soon. (Probably I’ll read them at late night during the Australian Open. The Open begins at 3am each morning- so I won’t be sleeping at night much anyway?)

Jack Reacher



Five random people are gunned down in the middle of a city in broad daylight.

An ex-Army ‘hit-man’ it accused of the assassinations.

His only statement is “Find Jack Reacher.”

The assassin’s attorney soon discovers that Reacher is not a friend to the assassin, but a sworn enemy.

Soon, it becomes apparent that there are many hidden agenda to the five killings than first realized.

I enjoyed the movie. (Usually, I watch movies for 10-15 minutes at a time and then do chores, eventually to come back to the movie. With this movie, I did not want to leave!)

THE MULE

I am an avid Clint Eastwood fan, and in the movie THE MULE, I was not let down.

Earl Stone, an 80-year-old day-lily horticulturalist, finds himself suddenly outdated in the world of marketing his prize flowers. His home is foreclosed and he is left penniless.

He had been a family-man who was far more devoted to his flowers than he ever was to his wife and daughter.

Suddenly in need of an income, Earl encounters an offer too good to refuse… a one-time deal- just drive and deliver… no questions asked.

As the director and with the lead role, Eastwood has excelled!

FYI: The movie earns its R-rating for language. There is a brief nude scene.

THE LIBRARIAN: RETURN TO KING SOLOMON’S MINES



Enjoyable, but not as good as the first one…

The map to King Solomon’s mines is stolen from the library. The Librarian, Flynn, has to brave watery grave-sites, a killer hippos, and evil henchmen to save the world once again.
