"Twin Peaks," Episode 15 Recap: How Beautiful Is This

  • MUBI
Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.The best things come to those who wait, and Big Ed Hurley (Everett McGill) has long been dreaming of the moment that opens Part 15 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's Twin Peaks revival. "I've been a selfish bitch to you all these years," says his one-eyed wife Nadine (Wendy Robie), who's walked a long way—a Dr. Jacoby/Dr. Amp gold, shit-digging shovel slung over her shoulder—to the cash-only Gas Farm that Ed has run for most of his life. She states the obvious: Ed is in love with Rr Diner propietor Norma Jennings (Peggy Lipton), and she, Nadine, has always stood in his way. Those days are finally over. Ed is reluctant to think of this as anything beyond another of his spouse's manic episodes.

‘Twin Peaks 3×15′ Review

In this week’s Twin Peaks, we were given a journey through different emotions. Through happiness, love, sadness and despair, this was an episode to give any Twin Peaks fans major feels. It may also hint that next week we are finally getting what we want.

In this week’s episode, we get the nostalgia of a romance finally coming together. Evil Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) meets with the Woodsmen to take a trip to see Phillip Jeffries (David Bowie), and we also say goodbye to a much-loved character.

At the beginning of the episode, it is hard to not get emotional for Ed Hurley (Everett McGill) who is finally put in a position where he can be with Norma (Peggy Lipton). It is in this moment that we see him truly give up on the relationship, and Lynch directs the scene perfectly. We get to feel that heart-breaking feel of abandonment,

Everyone Says I Love Woody – What Romantic Comedies Owe to Mr. Allen

  • HeyUGuys
Woody Allen’s back catalogue casts a long shadow across contemporary romantic comedy. His tropes and trademarks are as ingrained into the collective sense memory as mother’s perfume. At the first tremble of a clarinet, mutter about mortality or meander across a Manhattan neighbourhood, we inhale the nostalgia like Bisto kids. And arguably we’d never have met Harry and Sally, walked the Sidewalks of New York or dined alongside Friends with Money without his influence.

The Longest Week is peppered with Woody base notes. Over the course of seven days, Conrad (Jason Bateman) has been stripped of the safety net of his wealth and the cushion of his ego, moved in with his cynical best friend (Billy Crudup) and accidentally fallen in love with his girl (Olivia Wilde). His eventual dilemma – to be or not to be a better man – is as timeless as Annie Hall.

Now, to coincide with its DVD release,

5 Characters That Sucked But Grew On Me

Normal 0 false false false En-gb X-none X-none Some characters you know you are going to like right away.

The first time I stumbled across The X-Files and saw David Duchovny turn around in his swivel chair as Special Agent Fox Mulder, all handsome with deadpan wit and alien conspiracies, I wanted to know what was going to happen to him.I also garnered instant admiration for Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) who was the petite, cute, blonde heroine instead of the damsel in distress or dead airhead number two.

And who would not want a brother like Jensen Ackles’ Dean Winchester? His depth of singular devotion is usually reserved for children or lovers.

Conversely, there are characters you do not love to hate but only hate, or at least do not care for one way or another at first. Thoughtful writing, talented actors

Top 25 brutal bosses in videogames

Feature Aaron Birch 1 May 2014 - 06:33

Boss fights are almost always a game's highlight, but some are more challenging than others. Here's our top 25...

In the world of videogames bosses aren't the kind of authority figures that'll give you a last minute report to do, or delegate to you tasks they simply can't be bothered doing. No, these bosses would rather take that report, roll it up into a ball, set fire to it, and throw it at your face. The only delegation they're interested in is getting you to test the sharpness of their axe, or the effectiveness of a new spell.

The end level boss is almost as old as videogaming itself, and many genres have some form of superior foes awaiting you at the end of a level, area or mission. These bosses are often large, overpowered beasts that make the foes you've faced thus far seem tame in comparison,

The 'Veronica Mars' movie spoiler review

  • Hitfix
The "Veronica Mars" movie was released on Friday, in a limited number of theaters, via various digital and On Demand platforms, and through digital downloads that came as one of the Kickstarter rewards. (Though I understand there have been some glitches with that.) I already reviewed the film in advance, but there are certain things I didn't want to talk about until many of you had seen it. So spoilers coming up just as soon as I'm a Hooters barback... The best thing about the movie was how much it made me want to see another one — not just because I thought Rob Thomas, Diane Ruggiero and Kristen Bell did such a great job of making Veronica work as an adult character, but because the unusual circumstances of this movie's creation meant it had to be made in a very particular way. I respect the idea that Thomas wanted to

John Mackenzie obituary

Film director whose career took him from gritty television plays to Hollywood thrillers

People who talk wistfully of the "golden age of British television drama" are often accused of viewing the past through the rosy lens of nostalgia. But a clear-eyed examination of the era proves that such slots as the BBC's The Wednesday Play (1964-70) and Play for Today (1970-84) were unsurpassed as breeding grounds for talented directors such as John Mackenzie, who has died after a stroke aged 83. Like most of his contemporaries who gained their experience by working in television – Philip Saville, Michael Lindsay-Hogg, Ken Loach, Mike Newell, Michael Apted and Mike Leigh – Mackenzie went on to make feature films, notably his superb London-based gangster picture, The Long Good Friday (1980).

The television background trained Mackenzie to work quickly on taut and realistic narratives, within a tight budget and on schedule. One of his first jobs was as

Mothman Q&A With Stars Jewel Staite and Connor Fox

This Saturday night marks the premiere of Syfy's latest cryptozoological creature feature, Mothman. Earlier this week I somehow got invited to get up extra early (by my standards) to take part in a conference call Q&A with stars Jewel Staite and Connor Fox.

Perhaps it was lack of sleep that led to me realize shortly after the call began that I had no earthly clue what the heck to ask either of them. Could also have been due to having not seen the film and Syfy not having done much to promote it until the past couple days.

I'm guessing most of the other callers taking part also had some difficulty coming up with questions to ask considering someone actually asked them to compare Louisiana and California movie catering. Anyway, here's the transcript of the call for those interested in hearing more about Mothman as well as "Stargate", "Firefly

'Supernatural's' Jared Padalecki, Genevieve Cortese engaged

  • Pop2it
Let the wailing begin, "Supernatural" fans.

Jared Padalecki, who plays the taller but no less charming Winchester brother on The CW's "Supernatural," is engaged to be married to his former co-star, Genevieve Cortese, according to E! Online.

You may have noticed some chemistry during their sex scenes on the show, when Sam got it on with the demon Ruby played by Cortese in the fourth season (the first incarnation of Ruby was played by "Melrose Place" star Katie Cassidy).

Genevieve has put her demonic days behind her and is now on the ABC show "FlashForward."

The couple has done a good job of dating under the radar, a rarity for Hollywood.

So that's both Winchester boys off the market. Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean, recently got engaged to "One Tree Hill's" Dannel Harris.

Way to keep it in the network family boys.

Happy? Sad? About to create a voodoo doll of Genevieve?

Piles Versus Files

Desk of Christy MacLear, Executive Director, Philip Johnson Glass House Museum

Piles: Everyone gets them, and some of us admit it openly--and seek treatment. Christy MacLear, executive director of the Philip Johnson Glass House Museum in New Canaan, Connecticut, spent two years looking for an office desk that augments--rather than disguises--her piling ways. She describes her work style as "managing through piles." MacLear assigns each project its own stack of papers. "If I don't see them (they are in a cabinet) then the project might as well be in cold storage," she says. Many productivity experts agree that documents should stay more or less visible until you are finished using them. At that point, most papers can either be recycled or banished to closed filing cabinets.

Piles don't tend to be pretty. They eat up space on your desktop, sprawling out across every available surface like a ravenous suburb. And
