If you know nothing about it then it doesnt exactly sound tasteful or worthy of a watch: Four Lions is a 2010 British film. It is the debut feature from director Chris Morris, written by Morris, Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong. The film is a Jihad satire following a group of Jihadi homegrown Islamist terrorists from Sheffield, United Kingdom.
I started watching that on Instant play the other day but I got interrupted and haven't returned to it yet. I loved the first five minutes of it that I saw.



Red Dragon



Before finishing Red Dragon, I was under the impression that the events of this movie took place after Silence of the Lambs but before Hannibal. I found out that it occurs right before Silence of the Lambs.

In this entire series of films, I think that I much prefer Manhunter to any of the others.

Red Dragon is a remake of Manhunter but it takes its name from the original Lecter book of the same name that WAS a prequel but you are correct, Manhunter is by far the best and IMO Red Dragon is a piece of crap.

Really? I haven't seen this particular movie, but based on watching House I've found his American accent so good that I actually used to think he was American.

Kinda sounds like its trying to be a wooden spoon stirring the pot.
I'm not the type of person who believes everything they hear, which explains why I decided to watch the film to begin with. I question their version of events just as much as I do the original story. I don't care which way you shake it, there are still enough holes in the original story and unanswered questions to warrant an official re-investigation. One with a calm, collected, and open-eyed America behind it, not one that is used to push a pre-made agenda on an emotionally vulnerable public. Of course that would involve an American government that still has at least a small connection to the original event admitting it was wrong, I don't think we'll ever see that happen on that large of a scale in our lifetime.

I didn't mean to offend, I merley meant it sounds interesting, to hear different views and differnet opinions and speculation. And yeah I agree, their are allot of inconsistencies either way you look at it.
