Silence! The Musical & A Hannibal Post Mortem – Eat The Rudecast

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 […]

Hannibal Rising – Eat The Rudecast

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. […]

Cooper Live Tweets Hannibal Rising – A Taste of the Podcast To Come

Good evening, friends. Cooper here. While I usually take copious notes on episodes and films, I couldn't bring myself to do so for Hannibal Rising, which, unsurprisingly, was just as poor a film as I'd feared. Instead of taking notes, though, I live tweeted my viewing experience. The podcast comes out next week, but until […]

Hannibal – Eat The Rudecast

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 […]

Silence of the Lambs – Eat The Rudecast

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 […]

Red Dragon – Eat The Rudecast

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, […]

Manhunter – Eat The Rudecast

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 […]

Hannibal S03E13 – The Wrath of the Lamb – Eat The Rudecast

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 […]

Hannibal S03E12 – The Number of the Beast is 666 – Eat The Rudecast

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 […]

Hannibal S03E11 – …And the Beast from the Sea – Eat The Rudecast

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 […]
