ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!!!!


"When you think of me, in your multidimensional mind
Try and wash the evil from your mind and open it
When you taste the truth you will see like others
Before me to you, I am past a story to tell to you
I am past a story to tell, tell it
"

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.
(Hence the "kookoo, kookoo!" icon.)

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.
"I don't want Anakin and Obi-wan and the clone wars... I want more Han Solo and Milennium Falcon blowing up the Death Star" --Patton Oswalt

"Patton Oswalt is an idiot." --mjbethancourt


The prequels may not have been the Star Wars movies that everyone wanted, but at least they weren't unintentional parodies like TFA.

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."
