Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 8

This post will contain SPOILERS throughout. Wow BOB woW. This week's Twin Peaks took us to places television rarely wanders. Lynch - operating with the kind of expansive creative freedom that he's rarely been so fully afforded in his career before and especially not with regards to Twin Peaks - opened up the boundaries of what we can expect … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 8

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 7

This post will contain SPOILERS throughout. I'm sitting here as the UK enjoys a sweltering spell, biting great chunks from a baguette filled with (what else) brie and butter, desk fan blowing hot air at me, thinking about how Dougie Jones (Kyle MacLachlan) seems to divide the audience of new Twin Peaks. There are those who … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 7

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 6

There will be SPOILERS throughout this post.

She approaches our fledgling and formative years with a level of credibility that the young aren't often afforded in the movies, … Continue reading Review: My Life As A Courgette

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 5

This post will contain SPOILERS from the beginning. For some of us it's been an awfully long fortnight following so much new material. It was almost overwhelming being handed four hours of new Twin Peaks, especially seeing as David Lynch seems keen to double-down on his reputation for dream logic, disturbing brutality and extremely absurd humour. It … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 5

Review: Wonder Woman

Director: Patty Jenkins Stars: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, David Thewlis I'll be honest; I'd written this one off months ago before I'd even seen a trailer. Given that Zack Snyder currently reigns over the DC universe and following last year's abysmal Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and the equally poor Suicide Squad, there seemed to be … Continue reading Review: Wonder Woman
