    Film #23.

    What a boring, boring film.

    Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon share two plot qualities: Hannibal Lecter is locked up and he's helping someone with a case about another psychopath. The drama comes in him unfolding and figuring out the people he's helping with his intellect and manipulation skills. In this film, Hannibal is the main villain.

    I'm 15% of the way through my 100 Movies I've Never Seen Challenge!

    You may also notice that this isn't an X-Men movie. Well, I've decided to skip the Wolverine Origins one, so it's apt that I see another Hugh Jackman film in its place. Whether or not I do the same thing again when I get to "The Wolverine" is yet to be decided.

    I really, really enjoyed this film. It's a simple British Feel Good Underdog That Doesn't…
