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

It really bugs me when a flawed work like TR which happens to be very ambitious and artful and unconventional gets those really positive reviews - the ones that say basically that this is the ne plus ultra of challenging/non-idiotic TV/cinema/literature/etc, and so unless you're a philistine who nee...

Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

Also, as long as we're on this subject I'd like to say I've always found Laura opening her face to be a very eerie, fascinating moment/effect. Not sure why it's been divisive. Sarah's similar bit wasn't quite as successful for me, though there's several things about that whole scene that I find que...

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

To me it's basically like a bunch of old friends gathered all the ingredients to make a wonderful cherry pie together and then just when they want to start Lynch barges in with a chef hat, pushes everyone out of the kitchen and says: right i'm gonna make banana crepes with this and just improvise. ...

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

Lynch - "We need this to happen. Can you guys do that?" SFX guy at computer clicks mouse. "Like this?" "Beautiful." "Y'know, that's just a built in effect that comes with the program. We could spend some time on it and let you see what we've done later." &quo...

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

Seriously guys, we can't discuss and debate the VFX in a TV show without resorting to ad hominems for anyone who doesn't "get" the brilliance of a particular effect?

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

About OAM/PG, yes, he does go arround like a grumpy groundskeeper, but this "do you have a seed" line almost made him a Clippy-like character "It looks like you are generating a tulpa, I need a strand of hair from the back of your head". (for those who do not know I am talking o...

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

All in all, it's just a damn shame imo. They had almost all of the old cast reunited some 25+ years after, Lynch & Frost at the helm, Badalamenti and Cruise ready to burst out in song, a budget from Showtime, and then they spend most of the time in Vegas focusing on MacLachlan only who doesn't ...

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

Or, put another way, the Red Room as presented in the original series and FWWM felt like a deeply mysterious, uncanny place located out of space and time and full of beings and doppelgangers that would puzzle any rational mind; everything in the place is precisely opposite to what one sees in banal...

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

Sorry, I've just changed it for a Laura Dern beauty shot one... She did the same in Blue Velvet, once you've seen It, you can't unsee It. Hah! Weird, I didn't even notice or think about that during the scene, but she did indeed have the archetypal Dern crying face. Blue Velvet made much use of that...

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

Ah makes sense, yax. The more comments I read on it the more it sounds like she did post it as a joke and it's fake. Convincing though... Lol Aqwell. Do you have Jacoby flipping the bird as your avatar because that's roughly the same attitude Lynch and Frost have shown to their fans via TR? ;) Sent ...

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

Worst effects in the whole series is the death of Todd and Roger. At least other effects have a sort of Lynchian art look. But this scene was inexplicable. Exactly! It looked cheaply done but not in the interesting and artful way the other effects have been. Not sure why it was done like that and i...

Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

Although speculation, it's hardly a stretch to assume a good chunk of the budget was spent on Part 8. It's quite obvious how much more time, thought, and money went into 8 than any other single Part. The more primitive looking VFX throughout are absolutely intentional, though. Personally I mostly li...

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

BTW, holy shit - Julee Cruise's most recent Instagram post really is a Big Fat Spoiler! I mean, Jesus... maybe it could be fake but I doubt it. I wouldn't recommend anyone look at it unless they really have no qualms about a potentially MASSIVE spoiler. Like, WKLP level massive, if it is true. Wow. ...

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

I just started a full rewatch of the first 16 Parts, hopefully in time for Sunday night. I will try to update later or when I'm finished so as to relate how the experience compares to watching an episode at a time as they air. Anybody who's read my posts here knows I am quite mixed on TR. To get &qu...

Re: POLL - PART 17 & 18's biggest surprises will be...

It's hard to make predictions for the upcoming 2 episodes, as Audrey's mirror moment sort of placed the reality of everything we've seen so far into doubt. I'm not sure what has really happened and what has been some sort of dream/fantasy. Has the entire show up to this point been a dream, has only...
