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

"I'm smarter and hipper than you plebs" Maybe that's because I'm 100% confident in my view of the matter, and some members of the other side are not so confident so that their cage is rattled by sincere criticism from genuine fans. Sure sounds like you're just projecting. I know it's toug...

Re: Tamara Preston - Chrysta Bell - Horrible Acting (Spoilers)

Love the album and that EP, my main annoyance is that singing two tunes for the outros would've been a better choice but not too bothered by the sexpot over-enunciation on rewatches. Polish Poem is bliss and I'm willing to fight about it, shame there won't be something like it unless she jumps up on...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (SPOILERS)

I think only the beginning syncs up - the rest in the purple world is just coincidence and the usual magic that takes place when you combine unrelated video/audio and our brains try to make sense of it.

Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta go dig out "Dark Side of the Moon"

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

By now it should be more than clear that the quest and the heart of Twin Peaks lies in the melancholic longing of our hero becoming whole again, to finally set foot again on peaceful ground between millions of fine Douglas Firs and more ... Enjoy the ride. I think so too. I think that's near the en...

Re: NON SPOILERS: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Showtime Thread

Don't really understand where "pretension" comes into it, it's just showbiz lingo. Might as well get annoyed at the word "gaffer."

Re: NON SPOILERS: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Showtime Thread

N I'm kinda getting sick of this "prestige" TV bullshit I've been hearing constantly around here, as if Twin Peaks is on a pedestal over everything else, and is going to push Showtime past HBO, which is a completely laughable concept. I don't think you quite know what people are talking a...

Re: NON SPOILERS: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Showtime Thread

despite feeling like a radical step forward in Lynch's aesthetic, is also in a sense more of a callback to his early digital work which still tapped into the impressionistic, dreamy vibe of his post-FWWM celluloid films. That sequence looked more to me like Duwayne Dunham is a fan of Guy Maddin's r...

Re: Twin Peaks: The Missing Music (SPOILERS)

I really love the ambient drones. Lynch always knew what he was doing where sound design is concerned. I don't see that changing!

Nah. The only thing central to Thelema is arguing over the OTO.

I had no idea that "film buffs" all acted in unison.

Lovely moment for DL - they deserve it, what a triumph!

Awful stuff. I want some new Badalementi tracks as much as anyone, but this feels so clunky.

Re: NON SPOILERS: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Showtime Thread

The bar has definitely been raised. This has been my favorite TV experience in decades, as good as 29 and the finale to The Prisoner. Even if Showtime wanted two more seasons, that's going to be a tough challenge to meet!

Re: One reason to worry about the quality of Season 3

It conveyed a sense of reality, Don't understand this at all. The heightened melodrama of TP is as far from realism as you could get. DL in general is several continents away from realism. Surely surreality is vastly more important? Immersion remains an utterly useless video game term that has no b...

Re: Parts 1 + 2 (Spoilers)

Ended up watching them again along with 3+4, I think they are better than seasons one and two so far. Staggering achievements, glorious weirdness and all kinds of experimentation. I'm so glad it's managing such diverse reactions.
