Cooper, Ophilia, and Miko Technogeisha sit down at Chicago's famous Golden Apple Grill & Breakfast House to discuss their evening's entertainment, seeing The Cornservatory's production of Silence! The Musical. After they discuss their favorite moments and songs, they decide to deconstruct the Hannibal series and give it the autopsy/post mortem it deserves. (So that the... The post Silence! The Musical & A Hannibal Post Mortem – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
Well, we pretty much hate on Hannibal Rising for about 90 minutes here. Thankfully this is not the last episode of Eat The Rudecast. Miko has read Hannibal Rising as a novel, and fills in how poorly Thomas Harris adapted his own poorly written novel that he was blackmailed by Dino Di Laurentiis into creating.... The post Hannibal Rising – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
We're joined by frequent guest and friend of the show Kate Kulzick, contributor to The AV Club and PopOptiq, and host of our favorite Hannibal podcast This is Our Design and wide ranging TV podcast The Televerse to discuss Ridley Scott's 2001 film Hannibal, the final film in the Anthony Hopkins Lecter trilogy. We all... The post Hannibal – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
After the decent Manhunter and the unacceptably mediocre Red Dragon, we tackle Silence of the Lambs, and are quick to point out that we all adore this film. It's one of the greatest horror movies, and certainly the greatest serial killer film of all time. With such pedigree we find it difficult not to wax... The post Silence of the Lambs – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
We begin the Anthony Hopkins Lecter Trilogy with arguably the worst of the three of them, Red Dragon, an ill advised eleven years later prequel that finds us with an incredibly uninteresting Will Graham in Edward Norton, serviceable at best Dolarhyde and Reba (Ralph Fiennes & Emily Watson), but a more restrained performance from Anthony Hopkins,... The post Red Dragon – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
We're joined by Sean Colletti, the other half of the This is Our Design team to discuss an epic example of '80s movie, Michael Mann's Manhunter, the first filmic adaptation of Red Dragon, as we begin our analysis of the Hannibal Lecter film series. We wade into the Brian Cox VS Anthony Hopkins – Who is... The post Manhunter – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
For the third season running, Bryan Fuller et al have managed to shock us silent with the revelations and twists that bring the season to the close. With this finale possibly being a bit more final than the other two, we discuss whether it's possible it could've ended better, worse, or even differently. We discuss... The post Hannibal S03E13 – The Wrath of the Lamb – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
We're joined by an out of town friend, fan of the podcast and the show, Raina, as we discuss the penultimate episode of our season (hopefully not series). Raul Esparza gives his best performance of the series, Richard Armitage creates an otherworldly persona through movement and vocalizations as he truly becomes the dragon. We speculate... The post Hannibal S03E12 – The Number of the Beast is 666 – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
Formerly NBC's Hannibal goes far off-book with this episode, taking us to a place where we smug book readers are just as uncertain about what is to come in the final two episodes of the season. The Red Dragon is thrown at Will's family in a tense scene of stalking, Hannibal spends as much time... The post Hannibal S03E11 – …And the Beast from the Sea – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
We're halfway through the Red Dragon arc on Hannibal, and are being given both stunning beauty in the scenes between Dolarhyde and Reba, and stunning acts of CGI crappery (see the below CGI teeth). We go off on several tangents, Cooper calls some fans hipster douchebags and spends a good four minutes angrily ranting about... The post Hannibal S03E10 – And the Woman Clothed in Sun – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
The Red Dragon arc reaches the beauty that separates this work of fiction from so many in this genre with the introduction of Reba McClain (Rutina Wesley) and beginning to peel back the story of Francis Dolarhyde. Meanwhile Will and Hannibal begin a dance of working together in their own family, as Hannibal remembers his... The post Hannibal S03E09 – And the Woman Clothed with the Sun – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
We're joined by Kate Kulzick from Sound on Sight‘s Hannibal podcast This is Our Design joins us to discuss the rise of The Great Red Dragon, as Miko completes her summer walkabout in a vacation home with poor wifi. Cooper is a bit jarred by the transition from pretentious seventies foreign film first half of... The post Hannibal S03E08 – The Great Red Dragon – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
An episode that could very well be the series finale, as it brings us all the way up to the beginning of the Thomas Harris novels (excluding Hannibal Rising). The Italy portion of this season comes to a close, as does Mason Verger's story line. This episode brings us some of the most bizarre and... The post Hannibal S03E07 – Digestivo – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
Everything comes to a head in Florence, as Hannibal's time there is nearly at an end. Bedilia puts her drug and confusion filled plan into effect, Mason, Margot, & Alana go to plan B, and Will is briefly reunited with Jack, before getting to the reunion we've all been waiting for. All on this episode... The post Hannibal S03E06 – Dolce – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
The tragic hubris of Inspector Pazzi comes to a head in an episode that gave us severe déjà vu from the film version of Hannibal. We lament that his story was rather brief, and a single line change from the text leads Cooper down a complaint path to Watchmen. In the mean time Will and Chiyoh... The post Hannibal S03E05 – Contorno – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
A bang up episode that finds Chilton running his Avengers Initiative, Dead Abigail, and post Red Dinner origins for all of our characters. We meet Joe Anderson's version of Mason Verger and are quite pleased, as well as find out what happened (in brutally graphic fashion) to Frederick Chilton post Miriam Lass intervention last season.... The post Hannibal S03E04 – Aperitivo – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
So, now the question: Did Hannibal kill and eat his younger sister Mischa? Was she his first victim? This is the major overarching discussion of this third episode of Hannibal's third season. Cooper is a bit exhausted by the slowness and didn't initially like the episode. Miko & Ophilia are a bit more on board... The post Hannibal S03E03 – Secondo – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
At once an episode full of hallucinations and dream logic, and an episode that follows a very straight forward timeline. Will Graham wakes up after the events of the Red Dinner and heads to Italy himself. There he encounters Inspector Pazzi from the novel Hannibal. Will seeks Hannibal both for closure, and for comfort, to... The post Hannibal S03E02 – Primavera – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
And we're back! Hannibal roars back onto our screens on a motorcycle in Paris, stalking his prey. This tremendous season opener written by Bryan Fuller & Steve Lightfoot, and directed by Cube director Vincenzo Natali wastes no time in proclaiming Season 3 to be an entirely different beast than seasons 1 and 2. The adventures of... The post Hannibal S03E01 – Antipasto – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
As we prep season 3 of Eat The Rudecast, which begins early next week, we have an appetizer for you. Miko, Ophilia, and I were thrilled to join Sean Colletti and Kate Kulzick on their show This is Our Design to talk S03E01: Antipasto. We have our own S03E01 episode coming as well, but isn't... The post Hannibal Season 3 Appetizer – Eat The Rudecast & This is Our Design S03E01 Mashup! appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
We are joined at the table once again by Kate Kulzick from Sound On Sight, The Televerse Podcast, and our progenitor the This is Our Design Hannibal podcast. The reason for our expanded table is that we have arrived at the finale! Tonight, the throw down happens, and we get resolution that is both beautiful... The post Hannibal S02E13 – Mizumono – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
Mason Verger is disturbed to find himself not the star of a show called Verger, but merely the “little-bad” on a show called Hannibal. The final pieces are put in place for the epic season finale, and a guest star returns. All on this episode of Eat The Rudecast, an unauthorized podcast about NBC's Hannibal,... The post Hannibal S02E12 – Tome-wan – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
We can barely contain our excitement as Hannibal has multiple sessions with Mason Verger, the reveal and deveal of Freddie Lounds fate occurs, the windego morphs into Shiva, and the game changes significantly for Will and Hannibal when it comes to Mason Verger. All on this episode of Eat The Rudecast, an unauthorized podcast about... The post Hannibal S02E11 – Kō No Mono – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
We're thrilled to meet Mason Verger, played by Michael Pitt, as our story kicks over into end game and mini-series blasts its way toward the fight conclusion. This episode offers one of the most unnerving tableaus in the sabertooth Randal Tier display, and a thrilling climax that involves Will cutting the ginger. All on this... The post Hannibal S02E10 – Naka-Choko – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
From the opening fantasy sequence where Will uses his ravenstag to kill Hannibal/Wendigo, through the expansion of the Margot Verger subplot, to the most raw KOW (killer of the week) in Randall Tier, the beast, the mechanical cave bear, we adore this episode. Even if it does have one of the most unusual and abrupt... The post Hannibal S02E09 – Shiizakana – Eat The Rudecast appeared first on Cooper S. Beckett.
