    Twin Peaks: The Return


    I decided to try out a review in chapters for this second viewing of The Return, in which I'll update this entry as I watch the show's Parts. Each update will include some thoughts/sensations about the Part I just watched and will probably discuss some plot points, so I'm afraid there are gonna be spoilers (although I doubt that there are that many people who haven't watched this yet).

    I have the feeling that this second time will be much…

    Hooptober Se7en - 5/32

    The good kind of complete and utter bullshit. Critters 2 is better than its predecessor in almost every aspect: better pacing, funnier comedy, more chewed up people and more squashed or blown up critters.

Too bad for the relative lack of sci-fi mumbo-jumbo. Still not my cup of tea, but I enjoyed it more than the first instalment.

Still, in its utter harmlessness, Critters has its moments and works as a nice showcase of sci-fi/horror practical and optical effects, from the reversed face meltdown to the weird titular furballs…

    The Smell of Burning Ants


    "No one ever tells him what to be, only what not to be; boys become boys, in large part, by not being girls. [...] Later, he will be with women, and feel what he has been robbed of."

    The creation of the male gender (there's a conflation in the film between sex and gender, its discourse tackling the traditional/patriarchal production of gender roles) is for once seen as a result of negative repression and the traumas provoked by the always-already…
