Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Whether I ended up loving it, hating it, or feeling indifferent, I'd much rather see an artists unfiltered vision than see a film made by a committee of advisors. Then again, many of the greatest movies came out of the old studio system... Ok Gabriel got me on this one. Isn't anyone going to rush t...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

I think "disappointed" is officially the wrong term for this thread. If it was just that this thread would have died not long after the series aired. Vitriol is a more apt word. Vitriol is harder to let go of. When I've been disappointed by something I usually let it go and forget about i...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Someone close to Lynch (like the co-creator of the damn thing) should have advised him at least about what NOT to do. I'm thinking about the most terrible choices of the season : - The red curtain icon floating above slot machines in Vegas, turning it into a magical money maker + the infamous "...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

You could have just precised, the vast majority ... of Lynch fans. Which is already sad in itself, but not a reflection of the vast majority of the public, I hope. Yet, thanks to the vast majority of moviegoers the never-ending trend of bad sequels, bad remakes or bad reboots will probably go on in...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Just finished the book the other day, and although it's a little slighter than I thought it would be, I still really enjoyed it. The tragedies of Annie and Audrey were particularly poignant to me and felt tonally in line with what I expected. I'd still love to know whatever happened to Chester Desm...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

You must live in a parallel dimension where FWWM is considered a masterpiece by someone else than a bunch of San Franciscan bearded hipster guys. Now you're just trolling. Whether it's considered a masterpiece or not is up to the individual to decide. What is clear and undeniable is that FWWM is mo...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

If you care at all about the ‘storyline' You put 'storyline' in quotes as if it was some kind of weird or silly concept. Yet, almost all masterpieces both in literature and film that have stood the passing of time are based on a traditional, silly 'storyline'. Masterpieces which, needless to say, a...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Just finished this and have to say that I'm glad that we got answers to so many questions that were kind of infuriatingly left hanging in the air. I don't think that this de-mystified The Return at all, I think it leaves things just ambiguous enough. A few thoughts: - Very sad endings for most of t...

Agent Earle wrote:So, basically, sloppiness and retconning all around. SIGH. So much for the "it's all intentional" theory, which circulated around the publication of TSHOTP.

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

I take Lynch's public statements about not reading the associated spin-off books much like I take comments from sports figures who claim to focus only on "one game at a time". It's not true but makes for great comment. That's possible too, but if that's the case, he should clear this up w...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

I never said he had to like any of the books or even like that they exist. And it's true that what he decides to do with his time is his own thing. But my main issue is that, especially with Jennifer or Mark, these are people who are very close to him who obviously spent time viewing, considering, ...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

According to Jen Lynch, he didn't read the Diary of Laura Palmer either. Not sure if it's 'assholeish' or simply that Lynch prefers his films to stand alone. He tolerates the spinoff material, but that doesn't mean he necessarily likes the idea. I never said he had to like any of the books or even ...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Great analysis, Reindeer! One thing you said is something I have strong opinions on and want to throw out here: I wonder if DKL pays someone to read these books and summarize them before release so he can give feedback on what he doesn’t want revealed, or if he just prefers to remain blissfully una...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

In TFD Tamara Preston tells the story. It is her story, it is from her perspective. There is even something more, which is best worded in Lucy's vocabulary; "Tamara Preston? Which one?" BTW I do not appreciate two versions that exist at the same time. I will always prefer Lynch's universe...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Just finished the Final Dossier last night. Overall B+ in my opinion, missing an 'A' for the following reasons: 1. the Vivian storyline, which did seem like an attempt to clean up continuity errors from Secret History. 2. Explaining way too many mysteries from the series. Did we really need Tamara t...
