Twin Peaks: More Boring, You Die
20 July 2017 | by RadiSadekSee all my reviews

Every now and then, I feel the urge to review a movie or a series. This urge does not follow a certain logic, it is only due to the fact that I want to convey a message to somebody, anybody in the world.

Concerning the third season of Twin Peaks, my message is the following. I simply cannot believe that, at the time of writing this review, nearly 60% of all users have voted 10/10. This is incredible, it is highly improbable. I think that it is impossible, but hey, let's assume, for the sake of the argument, that it is somehow true.

If it is true, then IMDb ratings mean nothing at all, and they have never meant anything. How can 60% of people vote 10/10 for this crap?

I am a big fan of Indie, European and Japanese movies, where the action takes a lot more time to develop, with emphasis on the creation of the proper tone and mood for the film. They are usually much slower, as compared to your standard Hollywood flicks, where you don't need to think because you usually don't have the time as you are bombarded with action (think of the shallowness of movies like Inception, the Dark Knight, Interstellar, i.e. Hollywood flicks loaded with action).

In good Indie movies, the scenes are slower for a reason: you have to be able to take time to FEEL something. This is paramount, you have to feel something. But there is a time limit I personally can take, let's say 10 minutes, for a scene with not much happening to it: this is it, 10 minutes. Even in the slowest indie movie, 10 minutes is the maximum I can stand without something really happening.

Now in Twin Peaks Season 3 (TP3), 10 minutes would be a blessing, it would be a miracle. In TP3, some useless scenes carry on for hours (as it is a Series).

What is the meaning of a talking tree? What is the meaning of watching a guy sweep the floor? What is the meaning of watching a dream sequence for 45 minutes? It cannot have any meaning at all because these scenes are pretty forgettable, and TP3 is a series: it stretches for hours and hours, and you cannot remember all those details. They are useless.

The first season of TP was interesting because of the subtle conversations, the character development, the proper setting of the tone and atmosphere (you could really feel that you are in a small remote town with all of its little secrets, heartwarming but devious inhabitants : this made the series great). On the other hand, TP3 is just boring, violent, and cold, and presents no character development at all.

Now, let's go back to the ratings: if you look more carefully at the stats, you will see that Males Aged 18-29 have rated, on average, 9.3. These are probably the same which have rated movies like Inception and the Dark Knight Rises 10/10. Really?? To me, there is something highly illogical here. How can these action-oriented would-be-intellectual average movie-goers endure so much non-action scenes? And even more incredible, is it possible that they have rated TP3 10/10?

10/10 ?? Everything is perfect in TP3, really?? No flaws whatsoever ??

Either the ratings are rigged, or most of the Males Aged 18-29 are sheep, following the recent trend like sheep, nodding their heads whenever they don't understand something because of society pressure or because of fear of appearing stupid (if you didn't get it, then you must be stupid).

This series deserves 4/10. It is simply too boring to endure: more than 20 hours of boredom is too much, life is too short. Way too short.

As the famous song of Queen goes: "you don't fool me, you don't fool me, pa pa pa pa papapapap". Twin Peaks Season 3 is crap.
