Re: Recut of TPTR

On a scale of 1-5 with 1 least valuable and 5 most valuable, most of the scenes hover at 2-3, but I feel the same about Inland Empire. The jail scenes, Jacoby's rerun, all the Roadhouse crap. zzzzzzz I'm not a fan of the traffic stop scene, or Steve's suicide, but that's just personal annoyance. I m...

Re: When do you think will "Dougie" snap back to being Cooper? (Spoilers)

But hey, what role will the ancient key to the hotel room have?! My wild guess is there will be a vortex behind the green door James was investigating, the key will open the door. The sound Bushnell hears will guide him. Yeah I'm glad we had to wait for Cooper, too. Payoff worth it. For as unpredic...

Re: Gender in Twin Peaks: The Return (SPOILERS)

Just when we thought DL might respect Laura Dern too much to make her get her kit off... The message everyone seems to be receiving is that Laura is screwed in a lot of different universes, that there was never any saving her. Bleak outlook for survivors. The over arching idea that women are born to...

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

Boring stupid crappy. The Sarah stuff and the last scene was creepy and that's great and all but what was the rest of it. I did not need a full length fanfiction style sex scene. Entire chunks of silent driving time. Why did Cooper bother taking the Odessa waitress to the Palmer house? Who cares. It...

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

I haven't finished watching the finale in whole, but I just got to say punching the Bob Ball is really f***ing stupid. Like super f***ing stupid. Like thought bubble little Nicky stupid. F**k green glove, I want my life back that I wasted watching that character Everything in the jail is unwatchable...

Re: The Return - too many redudant storylines?

Too many storylines for what? It's a lot like a pilot where seeds are dropped to be picked up later. You can pick up these threads at any time, even if just in your imagination. I think that's what DL said attracted him to the medium of TV- it's like a movie that keeps going and going. Whether or no...

That movie's political message was powerful, super smart film. Went over a lot of people's heads but that's horror done right.

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

Thanks for the recommendation, sylvia. Have you read The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum? A few years back I working my way through recommendations from the Guardian's 'What Are The Most Disturbing Novels?' thread and becoming a little concerned because I wasn't finding them that disturbing. Then I ...

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

Yesterday I found out that even the few new tunes are not from Badalamenti but from a guy named Dean Hurley. Yep! I've had that album on repeat since I found out about it a couple weeks ago. I think it came up in the soothing noises conversation on this thread, but hasn't been discussed too much on...

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

Bravo! Now, had he not filmed it before, is it a fair question whether the Lynch of today would have filmed the same kind of MD today if he was set to do it? I think that is a fair question, and my answer to it would be no. He did, it's called TPTR. MD was imagined as an TP spinoff at some point, c...

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

Hmmm, worth considering when I'll be having my second viewing of MD, I guess. Here's another (rather recent) flick that deals with "the dark side of the dream factory" extensively and feverishly - David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars. What an excellent piece of work! Thanks for this rec! ...
