Re: Theories & Speculation (SPOILERS)

By the way, someone on Youtube mentioned that the substance the Coops are throwing up is Garmonbozia. Pretty cool if true. I don't think that was meant to be hidden; Bad Coop seems to throw up a combination of creamed corn, blood, and a black substance ("motor oil"?). Re: The dream interp...

Re: POLL! Your reaction to Twin Peaks: The Return, pts. 1 through 4

I like it more the more I think about it, which is pretty much the ultimate litmus test for art with me. (The opposite, less satisfying response being that I'm initially pleased but like it less under scrutiny.)

Re: Parts 1 + 2 (Spoilers)

I thought the first two parts were stunning. The effects, however objectively unconvincing they may be in terms of realism, had me completely under their spell. I don't try and relate them to 'the real world', whatever that even means. I think that's counter-intuitive. Realism is just an aesthetic ...

Re: Parts 1 + 2 (Spoilers)

Anyone else like that all the people who have been interacting with Bad Cooper during the last two decades have no idea that the unstoppable malicious force they've been dealing with is -- in fact -- actually a literal manifestation of evil? Makes you think back to Dennis Hopper's character in Blue ...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (Spoilers)

Quite baffled by the 'the SFX sucks!' comments - you'd think people have never seen a Lynch project before. Crude effects and animation are a deliberate, longstanding tool of his. It's part of what makes that very specific and unnerving tone/atmosphere/aesthetic. Comments on both this and the actin...

Re: Parts 1 + 2 (Spoilers)

I thought the whole thing was about entering a world, getting drawn in. Doesn't intentionally bad graphics break the spell and pull viewers out of the world? Some of us, at least. I'm extremely confused about how people got through two seasons of Twin Peaks , or Lynch works like Lost Highway , Mulh...

Re: Parts 1 + 2 (Spoilers)

Probably in feel this sits closest to MD for me. The lack of music was the single most jarring thing for me initially, but I can't see how something this dark would work with a jaunty jazz soundtrack. This does indeed feel like the MD series Lynch never got to make (albeit with more radical superna...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (Spoilers)

13. Bobby bursting into tears and the music welling up seemed incredibly pandering fan service. But I'm glad if that meant some folks really liked it. I loved that. It was consistent with the original run in that any mention of Laura is enough to shatter the fabric of reality into soap-opera-esque ...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (Spoilers)

Brand new poster! Just binged through all four episodes. I love what I'm seeing, but it's very in line Mulholland Drive -- scattershot mysteries with an eerie, artificial vibe that seemed destined to come together into some sort of tangentially logical, certainly emotional, resolution. I'm absolutel...
