Re: Tom Sizemore accused of molesting 11yo

https://www.the-american-interest.com/2017/12/06/the-warlock-hunt/ Interesting article on how this whole fad/witch hunt is going too far. Knepper was right to say what he did. Careers are being destroyed on mere accusation, and that should be concerning to anybody. Yuck what’s with that male revers...

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

David Lynch playing Gordon Cole remains a very important piece of all this. It's too bad it had to rub so many of you the wrong way. I love the layers and all it contributes and ties together Part of what? Subverting audience expectations? To see Cole as an old school ie inappropriate boss? I don’t...

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

I find Stranger Things a very successful attempt to cash in on the superficial hipster-ish fad of throwbacks to the "golden 80's" that caters well to the nostalgia crowd but is otherwise pointless and devoid of practically any originality and meaningful content. The abhorrent current adap...

Re: New Merchandise Roundup (Officially Licensed)

It's 14k gold over silver. Well i guess thats why it is at that price so. Im not sure why i was thinking there was brass involved. It’s still 3x the price of any 14k (hair’s breadth) plated sterling aventurine (common quartz) signet. There’ve been great replicas over the years, even resin ones that...

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

2001 had state of the art effects and those long sequences support the idea of space and time in space. I don’t doubt TR was trying to actually accomplish something- like, on purpose- with time-wasting minimalism (or just minimalism eg The Turin Horse or anything Bergman) It just wasn’t that effecti...

Amber Tamblyn taking James Woods to task was impressive. This follow up is very good.

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

It’s fair enough that the creators had a different opinion, but it felt like a completely separate project that was ‘Twin-Peaks-ified’ in order to get sold. That’s why I consider the whole of TPTR to be artistically senile. It was like an Alzheimer’s patient – memories of the past all over the plac...

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

I am rather hopeful of hearing “honest” reactions to the new show from the original cast one day. For instance, Lipton in 2001 opened up about the fact that she found FWWM too dark and joyless. I have to wonder how she felt about S3. I could see Kimmy Robertson having some choice words about the gr...

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

Watching Michael Ontkean - and Jose Ferrer- in Tales of the Unexpected episode “Man From the South” (where he bets his pinkie for a J-A-G... car) and thinking about how unspoiled S1&2 Harry Truman has remained by S3. He’s safe in Jamaica, healthy and young in my mind now. Good on ya, Mr O. Did y...

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

Interestingly, I could use almost the same writing if I ever wrote a cohesive review explaining why I think The Return was a failure. https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/david-lynchs-late-style/#! What makes Season 3 difficult to dismiss or just completely bash is that Lynch clearly aimed to create...

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 Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

So according to the spoiler thread of the coming Mark Frost book, Laura Palmer is now missing instead of dead and Sarah hosts a demon since she was a teenager, which means that two demon hosts got married and fathered a being of white lodge light. Does anyone else find all this convoluted mess prof...
