Re: Poll: Worst Roadhouse performance

Roger Ebert didn't like The Thing. Was Ebert "right" about the film since he was a respected critic? Fans of The Thing may call his review out for misunderstanding the point of the movie, while haters of the film could use it as an example of his abilities or qualifications. It's all in th...

Re: Poll: Worst Roadhouse performance

In another post you've said that all criticism is valid which is fair enough in a general sense of appreciating all viewpoints. However, I would argue that some criticism is MORE VALID. Fans being negative about the Lissie performance are not being reasonable or thinking about its placement in the ...

Re: What Did Laura Whisper?

Your Soul has been utterly annihilated. In this context, the trial that Dale underwent as he confronted his Shadow Self in the Red Room and the resulting failure to show perfect courage meant the destruction of his Soul. He is now a Denizen of the Lodge (or a Dweller on the Threshold, as it were) j...

Re: What's your favourite scene from The Return?

Same here, that driver flipping out beside her violently sick passenger had me falling off the couch in tears. My favorite scene was probably the initial prison meeting with Mr. C. It really creeped me out. I'm also very fond of the "Nursery School" to "Starting Positions" to &qu...

Re: Poll: Worst Roadhouse performance

Man oh man, this poll is ample proof that some Twin Peaks are quite conformist and tunnel-visioned in their viewpoints. Its just a handful of dimwits but Lissie has been voted for most why? Because her performance makes it obvious she is lip-syncing? Because its too pop-rock and kinda upbeat? Jeez ...

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

Everyone has the right to express their informed opinion. If f.ex. you are an experienced reviewer, film scholar, director, screenwriter etc. it gives your opinion a heck of a lot more weight than those just expressing their gut feeling. Everyone is not as "right" as others when it comes ...

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

^^I share a few, but not all, of your disappointments. My problems with it stem from issues the show had in and of itself, less of how it related back to the original. I actually believe it would potentially have fallen more flat had he tried to replicate the moods and rhythms of the original exact...

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

So I've been thinking about Twin Peaks since the Season 3 finale aired and I have to say, after plenty of reflection, it simply lacks magic for this particular viewer. Nothing left me wondering about the mysteries or speculating about the events that unfolded in the years between. It's just left a r...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

It seems absurd that they wouldn’t know Cooper was Ray’s boss, unless Ray deliberately kept it from them...which I suppose is possible. The very idea of a covert FBI subsection that is kept top-secret even from most Bureau members revealing its existence to a street-level career criminal is inheren...

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

In fact we may have stumbled across a way of measuring precisely how much the cult of Lynch has blinded TR’s fanbase. Think again about the shovel-painting, floor sweeping, chevrons above the slot machines, the striptease in front of the writer-director, the Monica Belushi dream, “Not where it coun...

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

It's not fair to dismiss criticism. Everyone is right when it comes to art. If someone tells you why they like or dislike something, that's all there is to it. How something was designed, or why it was fashioned a particular way, has no bearing on the subjective reception of the completed work. If I...

Re: Black Lodge/White Lodge mythology

The story may depict everything that we need to work with, but we must still relate it with our own experience. If I showed Twin Peaks to my three and a half year old son, for example, he would be extremely disoriented, because it is not a matter of simple cause and effect / action and reaction like...

Re: Is Major Briggs an Orpheus figure?

I was recently thinking about the role that Major Briggs plays in the series and realized that he's something of a Laura Palmer this time around: his killer is unknown, the circumstances surrounding his death are mysterious, his corpse is given irregular attention and treatment, there is a clue hidd...

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

To be honest with you, I don’t really care much about celebrities. Including Lynch. If he did something wrong, he should pay for it. Don’t care how much I love/hate his work. I care about the movie I am watching, and I don’t see how their personal lives has any relevance on my enjoyment of somebody...
