  • Premonition


    at one point there's an ominous shot of a banister and then it does an even more ominous pan as if its going to show something notable only its just to centre the other banister slightly behind it in the shot

    lacks enough personality to where it crosses a line from "feels like a real film" into "feels like a film you'd see clips of people watching in a different film"

  • Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    "and the angels wouldn't help you because they've all gone away"

    like if you held a mirror up to the twin peaks pilot and then broke the mirror and then tried to reconstruct the mirror but you mostly just put the larger pieces in the frame and pipe the glue on with a icing piper so its still very visibly broken and then you followed the mirror around its daily routine for a while and then after that you affixed a post-it note to the mirror and the post-it note said "make a film about this mirror before it broke"

    "oh, it fell down"

    logging this today to mark the start of the rewatch i've been threatening to do since the return was announced so i can finally see season 3.

    watching via the blu ray set, and the remaster looks really good.

    i had forgotten so much about this pilot episode and got so invested in the soap opera plot based around the town that i forgot coop doesn't show up until like 35 minutes in

    will log again once i've finished season 2

  • To Be or Not to Be

    To Be or Not to Be

    "well naturally it's all very attractive and tempting, but what are we going to do about my conscience?"

    consistently excellent, especially when you consider this was made in 1942 so the outcome of the war was still uncertain.
