Re: Twin Peaks

Almost one year after the premiere, and I still don't understand "The Return". Watching other Lynch, though, Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart, showed he always had a bit of "Dougie" in his work, I just let it slide, because it wasn't 13 HOURS of Dougie-type hijinks.

The Dark Tower Movie

One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time. Idris Elba does his best (with a horrible script), Matthew McConaughey is worse, but I also blame the atrocious script. If you've never read the books, it's a pile of boring, incoherent nonsense. If you have read the books, it's a pile of boring inco...

Dunkirk

Nolan's latest is (predictably) stylish, structurally-focused, and (surprisingly) light on exposition. Relentlessly grim focus on retreat, but there are a couple of Spielbergian feel-good moments with swelling, rather bland, music (I wish he would change composers). A fairly abstract, unemotional af...

No!! I like The Constant, I just think it's horribly overrated. In my ratings it would probably be a top 20 episode, but towards the bottom of that 20. I actually think that Flashes... is more interesting in a lot of ways. But maybe I'll change my mind when we get to it.
