    The brain-eating scene in Hannibal: it doesn’t really add anything. It’s not as if it has T-Virus and will turn the kid into a mutant or something. And the kid isn’t going to know what the stuff is, so it’s not like it’s going to affect him psychologically. You could argue that it might signify Hannibal imprinting on the kid and that he’s going to have plans for him in the future, but that’s not really clear from the narrative itself. It’s just needlessly gross in what should just be in intense psychological thriller.

    I don’t think there needs to be an origin story for the Xenomorph. The Xenomorph already has enough of an origin: IT COMES FROM OUTER SPACE! What more do you need? A radioactive spider? A vat of chemical waste? Come on, this is an interstellar terror, not a superhero! We don’t need to identify with it; we just need to get far, far away from it.

  2. The Martian is the only Ridley Scott movie that I’ve seen all the way through. Heck, I’ve never heard of The Counselor or Black Rain. So I guess my least favorite Ridley Scott movie is Prometheus since I caught about five minutes of it and wasn’t digging it.

    I liked Black Rain. Yes, it has flaws, like Kate Capshaw being completely superfluous eye-candy (then again, that could describe her in EVERY movie she’s in). Yes, Michael Douglas’s character is an asshole, but he’s supposed to be an asshole. Plus I liked his interactions with Ken Takakura. They reminded me of an earlier and admittedly much better movie, the Yakuza, in which Takakura was teamed with Robert Mitchum.

  4. Hannibal is a fine movie. It’s not awesome like Silence of the Lambs and I wish they had gone with the book ending, but it’s not one of Scott’s worst.
