I love Chloë Moretz. No don't get me wrong, I don't love her in "that" sense but I think she's marvellous. I've already seen her perform in three films:
Purists will always argue that nothing beats the original. In many ways I agree. Exceptions exist of course but that's always debatable. E.g. Despite my love for everything Japanese, I consider Verbinski's The Ring just slightly better (i.e. scarier) than Ringu. So even I allow some remakes to receive more praise than their predecessor. When a film is almost literally remade, however, I'm of two minds on the matter. On the one hand it can be considered cheap to steel someone else's film and merely replace the cast, crew and title. On the other hand, perhaps those minor changes induce an extra bit of quality and therefore aren't so bad after all. Again, I refer to Moretz.
LTROI and LMI have a slightly different dynamic, mostly communicated through the way shots are set-up and the way parts are acted. But you will be watching the same film twice. And despite its high replay value, you might want to consider a pause of several months between both viewings. Just my two cents. ;;)
It also has two Bond villains - Michael Lonsdale and Mathieu Amalric - along with current Bond actor Daniel Craig in it.
Chronological order of release:
My favourite Hannibal film is definitely the wonderful The Silence Of The Lambs. I'm also a fan of Manhunter but that's because I happen to be a huge Michael Mann fan. I like the musical choices in Manhunter, most of the acting and of course Dante Spinotti's excellent photography. That said, I watch Manhunter as a Mann film, not so much as a Hannibal Lecter film. In that sense, I want to 'warn' people that they need not expect anything quite like Silence or Hannibal or even Red Dragon. It's a different type, style and era of filmmaking.
Reminds me of a topic I took part in a few months ago: would be interesting to see Mann do a Bond film. I'm sure a good bit of the community wouldn't like it, as his style is really a love or hate thing, but man, would that be a truly unique film.
Friday Night Lights
Season 1, 4 of 24
American Horror Story

Are they good ?
Are you suggesting that only season 1 and 4 of 24 are any good? I happen to like 1, 2, 4, 6 and 7. 3, 5 and 8 were a little... well...
