And perceived to be a flop, so they did the "Back to formula" #3, the Edward Norton "Red Dragon", which actually was pretty darn good. (Mostly because of Norton.)

Now, the #4 prequel-reboot (and "Never let the book author contribute a sequel" entry) "Hannibal Rising", OTOH...
Manhunter, The Silence of The Lambs, Hannibal. Hannibal being the third there. Although Red Dragon is also a great threeqel, being the third of the Hopkins ones specifically.

I'm a random guy, and, for the record, thought it was a horrifically bad ending, to a mediocre film.

This is true. Although probably it's the second most disappointing film, after Phantom Menace.

Yeah, it's...just not a sequel. Or a triquel. To ANYTHING.

Namely, by fanboys who thought "Well, if it's a movie thread, it SHOULD be about the Dark Knight movies...For what else IS there?"

Let this be a lesson....to you.

The three-installment story-arc is as old as storytelling itself.

It is based upon an extension of the concept of every story having a distinct beginning, middle, and end.
It's always the same argument: some pompous toad can't grasp the nature of an opinion, and calls mine "factually objectively wrong". If I deign to validate my opinion, I'm bombarded with baseless imputations, outright falsehoods, and all manner of fallacies. After I waste a week refuting the fallacies, the toad will retreat to the safety of insubstantial taunts and take a chest-thumping victory lap. Evidently there must be some foolish part of me that enjoys it, or I wouldn't keep coming back.

Not to push the point, but Klute, The Parallax View, and All the President's Men form what is unofficially known as Pakula's "Paranoia Trilogy."
