'Hannibal' Recap: Hannibal Behind Bars

7/26/2015 7:06am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
Ahh, another Saturday Hannibal. It's a little awkward to upend your Saturday night plans to watch serial killers carve innocent families to pieces, but if NBC's exiling everyone's favorite killer to the doldrums, to the doldrums we shall follow.

And so much has changed since last Saturday. "The Great Red Dragon" continues after a three year time jump. Will is happily married and has a stepson. We don't see much of them together, but he genuinely seems like a standup, normal dad.

I'm guessing that'll change now that Will's done his lightbulb-swinging-in-front-of-the-camera "this is my desi...

Last Night's 'Hannibal' Was The Freakiest. Thing. Ever.

7/19/2015 6:42am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
"Digestivo"- an alcoholic drink served at the end of a formal, multi-course Italian dinner. Sometimes it's grappa (brandy made from grapes), sometimes it's limoncello (lemon liquor). Typically, the digestivo is meant to help digest (well, duh) the massive pile of food you just consumed.

Oh, and in case you didn't get the memo (thanks for the short notice, NBC), Hannibal airs on Saturday night from now on, and for the rest of the season. Saturday night is where TV shows are dumped and left to die. And Hannibal will almost certainly not get that season four, but now there's a movie in the ca...

'Hannibal': 'Dolce's' Last Ten Minutes Are Absolutely Insane

7/10/2015 7:10am EDT
'Hannibal' Recap: Did Hannibal Just Eat A Main Character's Brain
"Dolce"- it means sweet, literally, but in a more appropriate context it's also "dessert."

Yep, it's already dessert time on Hannibal. Because, in case you didn't realize, our Italian dinner is only going to take up half the season. Season Three is really two movie/book adaptations in two parts- episodes one through seven are Hannibal the 2001 film (which we'll put a cap on next week with "Digestivo"), and the last six hours are a take on Red Dragon.

That our Italian dinner party is ending is signified two ways. One, by actually transporting all our protagonists out of old Italia. And two...

'Hannibal': Which Major Character Did Hannibal Kill This Week?

7/3/2015 6:31am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
"Contorno": A side dish, typically some kind of vegetable and typically served alongside the secondo (that is, the meat dish). Can be served hot or cold, raw or cooked, but never on the same plate as the meat.

Odd choice of title, isn't it? In much the same way that "Secondo" the episode didn't quite feel like the TV equivalent of hearty steak, "Contorno" is rich and filling and, appropriately, rare to the point of bloody. So much more than a little dish of broccolini, don't you think?

Ok, I'll put the food metaphors away for a while. But seriously- what a knockout hour of TV. Hannibal's ...

'Hannibal' Kills Off One Character, Resurrects A Few More

6/26/2015 8:56am EDT
'Hannibal' Recap: Three Mutilations And A Funeral
"Aperitivo": A pre-dinner drink (and sometimes a pre-dinner snack, too- something small like olives or a nibble of cheese) meant to open up your appetite and get you hungry for dinner.

Yes, it's hard to dwell on prosecco and munchies when Hannibal has just been cancelled by NBC, but no worries. Bryan Fuller and his team are already hard at work securing a new home for everyone's favorite consumer of human flesh. Besides, worrying won't get us anywhere- not when there's Hannibal to discuss!

So let's discuss.

"Aperitivo" is very much an aperitif for our season-long Italian meal. It's an en...

'Hannibal' Recap: Hannibal Gets A Very Vague Origin Story

6/19/2015 8:04am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
"Secondo": the main course. Either meat or fish (or plenty of both), and typically the heaviest part of any multi-course Italian meal.

Curious, isn't it? We're only three episodes into Hannibal's third season, yet we've already hit the main course. At least as far as the episode-title menu is concerned. You'd think, then, that "Secondo" would be a particularly critical outing for Hannibal (or have a certain meatiness, at least).

Not really. "Secondo" is the same measured, dreamy Hannibal we've seen all season. Not that that's a bad thing, of course.

And "Secondo" does build on a certain ...

'Hannibal' Gets Bloody... And A Little Romantic

6/12/2015 9:50am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
"Primavera": pasta in a light sauce of garlic, oil and parmesan cheese (plus cream, on occasion), cooked with plenty of fresh green vegetables.

But "Primavera" also means "spring" in Italian. And it's a painting by Botticelli, which Hannibal once used as the inspiration for a human corpse tableau. Of course, "Primavera" is also the title of our second "Hannibal" of the season.

A Primavera can be many things. Just like Will Graham can be just as many. "Everything that can happen, happens," he muses in his hospital bed (part profound wisdom, part medication high, no doubt). Meaning, there a...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Battleship,' 'The Dictator,' & More

5/14/2012 1:00pm EDT
Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Last week’s Tim Burton/Johnny Depp collaboration “Dark Shadows” turned out to be rather disappointing. The film starts out strong, but loses steam as it progresses. It has plenty of Burton’s trademark grim style with musical accompaniment by Danny Elfman, and some decent humor. However the villain is very one-dimensional, the climax is weak, and in many ways the film feels like a watered-down version of other classic Burton works like “Beetlejuice” and “Edward Scissorhands.” My Grade: C+

At the box office this week, you’ll find the science fiction action flick “Battleship,” the ensemble pr...

Claire Danes plays autism activist Dr. Temple Grandin in a new HBO film about the doctor's life. Grandin herself was diagnosed with autism and had to cope before there were commonplace methods in effect. Danes herself had a bigger support system in place for playing the autistic woman. She is married to actor Hugh Dancy, who had just completed the film Adam.

"My husband played an autistic person six months before I did this," Danes said. "So that was curious. It just so happened he'd done all this research before me so I had a bookshelf already stacked with all the reading material that...

Review: 'Adam' Starring Hugh Dancy And Rose Byrne

7/29/2009 1:29pm EDT
Adam
It's interesting, on the surface, that Fox Searchlight has released two films within two weeks of each other -- "(500) Days of Summer" and, now, "Adam" -- with the similar theme of "boy meets girl." Again, perhaps, on the surface. In reality, these films could not be more different. While "(500) Days of Summer" tugs at the emotions that everyone has felt at some point, "Adam" shows us what it's like to observe a relationship where one party does not quite even understand human emotion.

Adam (played by a pretty fantastic Hugh Dancy) has Asperger's Syndrome. A condition that's a form of Au...
