Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

That's true and it does seem intentional but they also could have spent a lot of the fx budget on part 8 don't you think? Or they could have done everything they did intentionally, don't you think? You have to understand that David Lynch is not a realist. His aesthetic interests are all about chall...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

I think some of the effects are absolutely awful. But I certainly believe they are exactly what Lynch wanted. Just because they are intentional, doesn't mean that I am supposed to like them. Fixed. Fans can't seem to understand that art isn't always trying, or ever trying, to produce enjoyment in t...

Re: A Simple Poll: Is Richard toast?

This character wasn't redeemable, so it made perfect sense that his most apt end was death. Why should he be redeemable as a character, and why should that have any bearing on whether he lives or dies in the story? Well, when we think in terms of character arc, he's ether got to change or stay the ...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

Yes I watched it, you're right but also how much of those visuals were determined by the cost? Who actually made the effects used in that short? If you watch the credits this season, only one visual effects house has done the effects in every part: BUF. So the same guys that did the super realistic...

Re: A Simple Poll: Is Richard toast?

I think we may see Richard again, but it will be his doppleganger. And since Richard was pure evil, then his doppleganger will be good. There's a Poe story like this called William Wilson. As for Richard being a throwaway character, that's obviously wrong. He was a huge part of the evil that Mr. C h...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

But these sorts of assumptions are obviously unjustified because who can say with any authority what looks realistic or "proper" in a fictional dimensional space like the Black Lodge? The closest authorities are Lynch and Frost. What about the effects done for Sarah Palmer removing her fa...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

When talking about the FX in Twin Peaks, it's important to understand that avant garde artists like surrealists and absurdists often don't value realistic representation. They intentionally value an artificial aesthetic because it challenges and subverts people's preconceptions of what realistic rep...

Re: TP:TR Gets Glowing Review in the Washington Post

The same conservative fans who disliked the original show are the same group who dislike it today. They want "proper" storytelling or else they lose patience. Yeah, right. It must be comforting living in alternative reality. Stop projecting. The critics agree with me, not you. The people ...

Crazy Theory: Does Richard Horne Have a Doppleganger?

And if so, would his doppleganger be good?

Is there a good Richard Horne out there?

Re: Theories & Speculation (SPOILERS)

Here's a crazy theory that would drive many fans nuts -- the whole story is a dream. The dreamer is Judy, and the reason no one wants to talk about her is they're afraid to wake her up. The funny part would be if we've never met Judy before. She's just some random person, and after she wakes up, Twi...

Re: TP:TR Gets Glowing Review in the Washington Post

Critics that understand formal experimentation -- most real critics -- love The Return. It's definitely a critical success, and the only people who seem to dislike it are those who were looking for more soap opera or to be spoon fed obvious answers and fan service from beginning to end. So The Retur...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

Small venues that have developed a reputation for having good bands or for helping to get good bands started often have no trouble pulling in big bands. That people object to this just shows they've never gone to one of these venues before. When I lived in San Diego a small place called the Casbah ...

Re: POLL: The Nature of Audrey's Situation (Spoilers)

I'm sticking with my DID theory. Audrey either has a number of alternate personalities, or she's in a similar psychotic fugue of some kind, brought on by the multiple traumas of the bank explosion, Mr. C's rape, and giving birth to a child of rape who happens to be a demonic sociopath. When you thin...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

The pine weasel is a tulpa!

I really dislike the idea of Laura being reborn as a tulpa. If she's going to return, we need the real Laura reborn with her own soul.
