Friday Night at the Drive-in

Well, okay, not really at the drive-in...it just sounded cool. Are there even any drive-in theaters left anymore? Sad.Anyway, I did go to the opening night of "Hannibal Rising" at a local ordinary, non-drive-in theater Friday night. The film is the latest installment in the "Silence of the Lambs" legacy, and though it was lacking the genius of Sir Anthony Hopkins, it was an engaging story nonetheless. I must warn you though, if you decide to go see it, make sure you have tissues handy. Seriously, it was heartbreakingly tragic and I pretty much vacillated between crying and hiding my eyes during the entire movie. Yes, in addition to the heart-wrenching, tear-inducing moments, there were also many, many graphically gruesome scenes. Someone with a stronger stomach for gore (i.e. Kelly) would have no problems, but hey, I can't help it if blood makes me queasy!
