Re: Special Effects in Season 3

Just wanted to chime in re de-aged Laura in Part 17: I thought this was one of the most polished effects and also one of the most successful at conveying meaning. De-aged Laura was so uncanny for me, and the clash of the familiar and unfamiliar in those scenes worked perfectly for me at the time. I ...

Re: Special Effects in Season 3

I can't imagine that the SFX choices had anything to do with budget personally. The super-realistic, feature-length effects cost a lot but your standard head explosion is really easy to do adequately – if realism is what you're going for – on a budget (or so I'm informed). I just think realism in th...

Re: Listen to the sounds....

Sometimes I think that figuring out what the sounds are is not that important, rather they act as an audio clue to help up figure out what's going on within the scene itself. Agreed. Just started watching again and I'm thinking I got too hung up previously on what these sounds were. But I now think...

Re: True second viewing

I'm working my way through for my second proper watch too. I've got the luxury of BluRay quality this time, and it's making some unexpected differences. Generally it's great – and the sound is much better than I remember – but it's almost too high quality in a lot of cases and some of the sets are l...

Re: RE: Re: Theories & Speculation

I thought that too. In part 17 when Coop says, "Now there are some things that are going to change", he looks at Hawk and Hawks nods as if he knows what's going to happen and he is prepared for it. Maybe the change and memory loss is Black rain? Great catch! I completely forgot about Hawk...

Re: Theories & Speculation

Mr Reindeer makes good points, and yes I did mean specifically Dougie-Coop. I didn't notice anything of Dougie in the "Richard' version of Cooper. The aspects of Dougie I believe I picked up on (drawing completely from memory, as I haven't done a full rewatch for almost a year): - Richard's mov...

Re: Theories & Speculation

But Richard is not his shadow self.Richard is Cooper in the new reality That's a bold assertion when the information we have is so ambiguous, IMO. In my reading of the final parts, Richard is a sort of amalgamation of all of the Coopers we have seen in The Return. He has the honour of Good Coop to ...

Re: Two birds with one stone

But wouldn't it be interesting if Richard somehow reconciled his awful nature and turned into Dale Cooper via Oedipal identification, then guided Laura Palmer to confront her mother for a similar effect..? I absolutely love this, Cappy! For a while now I've been trying to shake this feeling that th...

Re: Theories & Speculation (SPOILERS)

Just wanted to add to the discussion about the loan shark from Part 6 reappearing in Carrie's house. Janey-E, at the end of the conversation, remarks "you best take a long hard look at yourselves because I never want to see either of you again." Of course we do see him again and, like with...

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

"Consensual reality". I have no idea what that is, but as long it's consensual I suppose it's okay. Anyway, I'll just quote myself from a few pages ago Filmmakers having recurring themes or concerns or aesthetic motifs is not the same thing as "nostalgia for their own careers" T...

Re: What Did Laura Whisper?

Can you elaborate on this further? At the very least, what are you referring to when you say that Dale killed her by trying to prevent her death? Are you referring to him telling her not to take the ring? Or something from the new series, at which point she was already dead? This wasn't directed at...

Re: Final Dossier Spoilers

Can anybody recall in this series a character specifically mentioning the *death* of Laura Palmer? I want to save my rewatch until after I've finished TFD myself, but I'm wondering if there's anything in the idea that the Twin Peaks we mostly see in The Return is from the timeline where Laura just d...

this Reddit post is pretty intriguing, can someone brighter than me poke holes in it to see if it holds up?

Another update somebody shared on the Twin Peaks:DiaLOG page, this time couetesy of Davey Morrison Dillard: Just got back from seeing Mark Frost at a couple of panels at the Austin Film Festival!
