Fanfiction

Hannibal, Hannibal/Will, “knife and fork” by disenchanted

A breathtaking soak that is at the same atmospheric pitch at the show itself. Marvelous. (Also, I’m a monster, because that thigh prosciutto sounded SO. GOOD.)

Television

A Very Murray Christmas (2015)

Too cynical and grumpy and indie for my tastes. Miley Cyrus can still SING, though, and George Clooney affably popping out behind a tree to talk about Santa’s love life is both great and traumatizing.

Saturday Night Live, “Ryan Gosling/Leon Bridges”

Aidy Bryant wins this episode with Morgan, the overexcited thirteen year old, and almost not breaking in that alien abduction sketch. (Love that misplaced confidence.) And I kind of adore the Kinky Elves? It’s such a silly sketch, but Kenan and Vanessa’s little excited physical ticks are hilarious. As was Gosling’s elf losing all interest as soon as he realized no shenanigans were to be had. It was also good the first time. And then Taran pulled out a George Clooney impression? Is he just king of impossible male impressions? Magnificent.

Hannibal, Hannibal/Will, “There’s a Hole at the Bottom of the Sea” by longwhitecoats

Soft and beautiful and just sharp enough. Hannibal reads Will Dante.

Film

Ravenous (1999)

"AMERICA WAS THE WENDIGO THE WHOLE TIME!"

Television

Sailor Moon, “Believe in Love: Ami, the Kindhearted Guardian”

I would watch an entire series about Haruka and Michiru, teen detectives.

Sailor Moon, “Shadow of Destruction: the Messiah of Silence Awakens”

Ah, the old Twinrova maneuver… a few years before that game came out… huh.

Sailor Moon, “ The Coming Terror of Darkness: Struggle of the Eight Guardians”

Oh, Pluto.

Sailor Moon, “The Shining Shooting Star: Saturn and the Messiah”

That shot of Moon returning from the orb, her eyes just dead? Oh, man. Shivers.

Sailor Moon, “A New Life: Parting of the Stars of Destiny”

THIS IS SO UNNECESSARY. Also: nobody is asking enough questions about that baby.

Sailor Moon, “A Guardian’s Realization: Strength Lies Within a Pure Heart”

And Chibi-usa gets to stay! I do love how all the Guardians get Chibi-usa super personal and meaningful gifts, while Mamoru gets her… a pressed rose.

Sailor Moon, “Meeting of Destiny: The Night Pegasus Dances”

…does Fish Eye wear a puffy blue jumpsuit? And Tiger’s Eye, he is honestly wearing a pair of razor blades as earrings? Holy cow, we’ve found the worst dressed people in a nineties shoujo anime.

Saturday Night Live, “Art Garfunkel/Stephen Bishop”

Art Garfunkel’s eyes lack empathy.

Fanfiction

(Hannibal, gen) “i tiresias” by the sarcophagus (Disguise_of_Carnivorism)

It’s only in the two weeks after the show ends that I realize how much I love and adore Alana. This fic has her watch Hannibal’s public trial (with plenty of commentary from the peanut gallery) and it is heartwrenching.

Film

Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)

SURPRISINGLY GOOD. Slick, sleek, and gorgeous, although the third act gets wobbly and the film kind of forgets that Gaby is amazing. (And she is.) But that scene where Gaby and Illya go from hating each other to almost making out? Is so perfect. Lots of fun and nothing that made me want to rip my teeth out.

Television

Hannibal, “...And The Beast From The Sea”

Molly escaping Dolarhyde: SO TENSE, SO WELL ACTED. I mean, I know Nina Arianda is a very good actress and that her chemistry with Dancy is off the charts (they were in a production of Venus in Fur together), but SHE IS SO GREAT. And that hospital scene is also SO GREAT. Ugh, everything is going to hell and Hannibal is doing everything he can to sow chaos and fuck up Will enough so that he’ll come back to him.

Saturday Night Live, “Steve Martin/The Dirt Band”

Jane Curtin as a distaff Fenstrunk is delightful and I never thought I’d love the Coneheads so much. Also, the Dirt Band is compromised of wizards.

Fanfiction

(Hannibal, Beverly/Miriam) “I know I never really knew you, but somehow I miss you” by anonymous

WHAT A PERFECT HEARTWRENCHING IDEA SCREAM.

(Hannibal, Hannibal/Will) “La Maison Rouge” by Randstad

Hannibal makes breakfast for Will every morning. Randstad has such a FANTASTIC grasp on Hannibal’s voice.

Fanvid

(Hannibal, crack) “Hannibal Crack Vid #2” by GirlwithGoldEyes

Best possible use of JonTron’s infamous “I Will Always Love You” riff? Best possible use.

Television

Hannibal, “And the Woman Clothed In Sun” 

Talk shit, get hit, William. I do appreciate the parallels between Bedelia and Will, and the show really dissecting what makes them similar and different. God, I miss therapy scenes on this show. ALSO: DOLARHYDE’S SEX SCENE (screaming in fear for Reba all the while) and THAT ASSHOLE FINALLY EATING THE BLAKE. Well done, Mr. Armitage. Well done.

Fanfiction

(Hannibal, Hannibal/Will) “every color at hand” by Randstad

Is this a perfect fic? It might be a perfect fic. Perfectly echoes season one mindfuckery. I don’t want to say anything more.

(Hannibal, gen) “I am a Good Dog” by hershpa

Tragic fic from Winston’s perspective with nothing bad happening to the dogs. Except the people sausage.

Fanvid

(Hannibal, gen) “aruba” by CaptainBanshee

Hee hee.

(Hannibal, Hannibal/Will) “Silver Linings Playbook - Hannibal Parody Trailer

Brilliantly done and edited; I really like how it just borrows beats from the original trailer, because there’s plenty of suitable material in the show.

Film

Ella Enchanted (2004)

“Is that… a purposefully cultivated neckbeard?” Also: keep your eyes peeled for Hugh Dancy’s facial hair, which cannot be tamed through conventional means.

Television

Hannibal, “And The Woman Clothed With the Sun…”

OH, GOD, THIS SHOW. Molly and Will’s phone call (complete with +2 dogs). Dolarhyde’s new amazing friend (PLEASE LET NOTHING BAD HAPPEN TO HER and I also kind of want them to run off together even though he’s a murder rapist). WILL AND HANNIBAL TALKING. AGHRHGH.

Saturday Night Live, “Mary Kay Place/Willie Nelson”

Mary Kay Place brings a very streamlined and welcome perspective to this episode. I did enjoy the Ladies’ Group sketch, where four women compete to see who can be the most self-abnegating in a relationship. It reads like an Amy Schumer sketch that actually hits home and also features Newman and Radner play-acting a couple. Laraine Newman is a goddamn national treasure.

Hannibal, Season 2

ENDLESS SCREAMING. Seriously, this show is so good that I feel drunk on it.

Hannibal, Season 3a

MORE ENDLESS SCREAMING. Weirder visuals (yeah, that’s possible), and a bizarre (not) resolution to Will and Hannibal’s perfectly fucked up relationship. Delicious. Also, Laurence Fishburne is so good in this show.

Hannibal, “The Great Red Dragon”

We’ve skipped ahead three years, and it is somehow… even more the eighties than usual (even though it’s set ~nowish~). DELIGHTFUL. Aw, look at Will, king of Wolf Trap, where people bring him animals and he fixes things and he has a wife and a kid, drawn back into this horrible, horrible life. I do appreciate that Hannibal looks a little unsettled to see Will.

Sailor Moon, “Higher and Stronger: A Cheer from Usagi”

“You’re not going to give him your letter? BUT WE JUST BROKE IN HERE SPECIFICALLY FOR THAT!”

 No entry this week. I'm frantically trying to catch with Hannibal, and will reserve my thoughts for when I finish the second season. And I will eventually catch up on Sailor Moon.

Top Gun (1986)

“NOTHING HAPPENS IN THIS MOVIE!”

Hannibal: Season One

That quote from Bryan Fuller about how Hannibal is a pretentious 80s art film instead of a television show? DEAD ON. All bad decisions are made, Will Graham is emotionally and mentally manipulated and abused to within an inch of his life, there are far too many dogs, and Hannibal is SO EVIL why is NOBODY picking up on this? I need season two stat.
