Who's excited for the new season of Twin Peaks?
I personally, cannot fucking wait, and think its gonna be some seriously fantastic television. Most likely will be the last thing David Lynch does film-related (hes pretty old) so I think hes gonna give it everything hes got.
I'm gonna watch the fuck outa it regardless, but my only hope is that Lynch drops some of the campiness/quirkiness of the original run in favor of the darker approach he took with Fire Walk With Me and his following films- while focusing on just few story arcs instead of like 10. Also,...

>while focusing on just few story arcs instead of like 10.
NO. keep the 10 story lines, this is what makes it so good, keeping track of all of it.
Yeah but some story arcs from the first run were unnecessary and just pretty bad I thought.
For example: the whole Ed, Norma, Mike, and Nadine thing...James's fling with that rich lady (or anything James related for that matter) Shelly and Bobby...
Idk I just hope there isn't any cheesy love affair shit this time around.
...but maybe it wouldn't be Twin peaks then?
so much of those side stories are there to give depth to the town, to set the stage for the light/dark lodge and to show the good/evil in every day life.
I loved those side stories. Ed n norma were beautiful.

Are there any actual films from <25 years ago that were genuinely reviewed bad on release but now are well regarded? It seems whenever movies like this are discussed it's something from the 60s.
the original tron is a film about how the speed of technology's improvement and integration into society was outpacing society's ability to keep up with that change, and it used the imagery of video games and the cold war to demonstrate the struggle to control this technology in ways that could improve or oppress humanity
tron legacy is a flick about computer nazis, with generic sci-fi themes about "perfection" and despite being a movie set inside a computer, has absolutely nothing to say about technology

so you think there's nothing about trans-humanism in it? nor could be the starting point of an interesting story about the singularity?
trans-humanism? not really. you can argue that the ISOs are a post-human, or better yet a post-religious concept, life that digitally evolved inside the computer that will challenge humanity's preconceived philosophical notions of existence. but really, in the film the dichotomy is that the programs were created by God (Flynn) in his image to inherit the Grid, but the ISOs evolved naturally and became God's chosen people instead. It's an interesting idea that the movie doesn't really do a lot with. but as far as transhumanism goes, there's nothing about how technology changes or enlightens Flynn or Sam.
as far as the singularity goes, that went out the window when they decided to ignore the last 20+ years of technological development (ie the internet) in order to tell a story set on an isolated server that was built in the 80s. when they announced that, i had an inkling that the film was going to be dumb. almost nothing in this movie touches on how technology changes how people think and interact (with the notable exception of Sam pirating the Encom OS in the beginning of the movie, a scene that briefly tricked me into thinking I was watching a good movie). disney did make a movie that touched on these themes; it was winter soldier, a movie where literal nazis scrape everyone's digital data in order to mathematically predict and murder potential dissidents. i am still butthurt that a captain america movie was a better tron sequel then the actual tron sequel

How come the first Terminator tended to intimidate, strongarm or ignore people around him, only resorting to lethal force if he was confronted, but the second Terminator basically just butchers every single person he meets?
The T-800 was an infiltrator, so a large part of his effectiveness depending on not being noticed and not drawing unwanted attention by killing someone.
The T-1000 didn't care, because it could just take on the form of any person, so his success did not depend on whether or not he ended up being pursued by authorities.
