The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) on IMDb 
The Nightmare Before Christmas is a second movie Christmas-themed, which I chose to fill Christmas in 2013. Unlike Christmas movie in general, The Nightmare Before Christmas is very far from the beautiful things that we usually find when Christmas come. This movie featuring the main setting in a place that is 180 degrees opposite from Christmas, a dark town called Halloween Town. According the name, Halloween Town is a town that is filled with shades of Halloween. The atmosphere is very dark. The buildings are far away from a beautiful word, old-fashioned and not maintained well.

Stars   :  Daniel Bruhl, Chris Hemsworth, Olivia Wilde
Score  :  8.0 / 10
Rush (2013) on IMDb 
RUSH is my third favorite movie in January 2014. There will be a lot of films included in my favorite list in early 2014. The next three films that will follow soon in my favorite list are Back to the Future III, Hannibal and Captain Phillip. Last year, my friend who has a hobby on food photography advised me to watch RUSH. But because of the airing time of RUSH in theaters is almost over, I do not have time to watch it. I watched RUSH in 2014, it is a bit late, but no problem than not watching it ^.^ And after watching it, I agree when he told me that I should not miss RUSH. A good story and contains good moral message.

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

5 Oscar at The Academy Awards 1992 
<img src="The Silence of the Lambs.jpg" alt="The Silence of the Lambs Cover">Stars   :  Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins 
Score  :  7.8 / 10
The Silence of the Lambs (1991) on IMDb 
This review has a connection with the previous (Red Dragon), because The Silence of the Lambs is a sequel of Red Dragon. As I mentioned before, those are part of trilogy based on a book by Thomas Harris. In this sequel, there are two striking differences from the previous, protagonist character and the story focus. This time, the story involved a beautiful protagonist character, Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster), a woman who was an apprentice in FBI. If Red Dragon story focused on murder cases, the Silence of the Lambs focused on Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins). Why? A simple reasonable answer is The Silence of the Lambs is a bridge to get to third sequel, Hannibal, which told a lot about Lecter.

Red Dragon (2002)

The Best Psycho-Themed Movie Ever
<img src="Red Dragon.jpg" alt="Red Dragon Cover">
Stars   :  Anthony Hopkins, Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes
Score  :  7.5 / 10
Red Dragon (2002) on IMDb 
The most of movie fans must have been heard the title of this movie and I'm sure a lot of them have watched it. Yes, this film is part of the trilogy adaptation from the novel by Thomas Harris. Those movies are The Silence of the Lambs (1991), Hannibal (2001) and Red Dragon (2002). But if sorted by the story, the first is Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs and the last is Hannibal. Because I've never watched them, so I chose to watch Red Dragon first. Will Graham (Edward Norton) is an FBI special agent who was investigating a series of murders. The murder was very cruel because the victims were found dead with some of body parts was lost. Will has a pretty good imagination skill. He suspected that the killer had eaten the victim's body parts.
