Everyone was right? Season 32: "I, Carumbus" The Lodge Instructions (Part 2 and Part 18) Did Marty change Doc in the new timeline? Mary Magdalene (a stream of consciousness poem for Easter) the fourth one (2022) recent episodes about the afterlife? The evil/creepiness of Ray seriously underrated without a doubt the best mask Myers has worn? View all posts >

Sorta yeah and sorta not. Part 17 does end with Cooper "finding Laura", which is what Leland (or the Lodge?) told him to do in Part 2. There's a bit of finality in that image. But where does that lead to? Finding Laura - what does that accomplish? We don't find out. It can't really end like this. I mean, both endings of Part 17 and Part 18 are cliffhangers. But the Part 18 ending is a bit more finished than the Part 17 ending. Part 18 opens with Cooper is taking Laura home, only to lose her on the way. Then, it's like Cooper's journey restarts again. And Cooper is taken back to the Lodge. Scenes very similar to Part 2 occur in Part 18. A similar set of instructions are given to Cooper by the Lodge in Part 18. "Find Laura" is a command by the Lodge that's stated both in Part 2 and Part 18. I heard a rumor that the opening Giant scene was not in the original script and that it was added in late. I personally don't think the scene should've been included. I don't like the scene and I don't like the Giant/scenes with him. Just give me the Red Room with Mike and the Arm, not the Giant. Cooper says, "I understand" after the Giant asks him if he understands. Cooper does not understand by the end of the series, since Cooper has to ask what year it is. I think your interpretation could be right, that it's supposed to represent the audience. Maybe it just represents the naivety of Cooper, and thus us, to some degree. We have to be better detectives. I think the real last scene of Cooper is in the end credits with Laura - he got sent back to the Lodge again. Similar to how he got sent back to the Lodge at the beginning of Part 18 after trying to find Laura at the end of Part 17. I think I will read his book, for another POV of this. A film translates differently than a book translates. Thank you. Huh? Why can't jokes have a moral/lesson/platitude to them? I think there is one. Sometimes the obvious answer is right in front of us, and we cannot accept it. I think that was Ralphie's case. I'm not saying he shouldn't have gotten the Red Ryder gun as a gift, but every one was correct in a certain sense. It was a dangerous toy. Further, I want to re-watch this film while focusing on the father. The father seemed to be causing all the trouble in this film. Wasn't he responsible for two controversial Christmas gifts? Both the leg lamp and the Red Ryder gun? The father is sketchy. When I watched this as a kid, I was freaked out when he went into the furnace to fight it or whatever. What a character. Hahaha, good one. So, the real mythological meaning of Halloween relates to how dead spirits can access the physical realm more so than any other night of the year? Maybe Michael Myers is a "dead" entity in a certain way. Treats are denied to him, so he only "tricks". Maybe the ultimate mischief is bringing his victims down to his own level - being dead. Yeah, Halloween 3 tries to relate to the holiday more. I thought Thorn and Halloween 6 also did a decent job of relating to the pagan ideas of the holiday. I am in a odd group, because I like Halloween 4 through Halloween 6 better than the first 3 Halloween movies. I'm not that much into the current times. In the last few years, how many movies are even set in the current year without a fictional premise? The current times are depressing: a global pandemic, terrible politics, kids are on technology all the time. I don't care that the Simpsons haven't been in the present day in these 3 episodes. I live in the present day, I don't need to see it all the time. In fact, I wouldn't mind if the entire season was them doing history stuff. I agree with you. I would go even as far to say that I like Resurrection over this reboot. I like Laurie's end in Resurrection better. I like the opening monologue in Resurrection. She's too cocky and sure of herself in this one. She's more sad and authentic in Resurrection. Over the last couple of seasons, there's been a decent number of episodes ending in the afterlife ("Clown in the Dumps", "Bart's Not Dead"). It's crazy existential and I like it. The writers feel so existential now. There's been a handful of good episodes generally too. I liked last year's thanksgiving episode. What do you like about the movie so much? What is the meaning of this movie to you? 1) Short Round is just a kid, he has to go back to school or whatever. Indy has his own life as a university professor. This is like asking what happened to Willie Scott - same reason, it didn't work out between them. Not practical. 2) Actually, Indy was knocked out for a quarter of this film. He drank the blood of Kali and then he wasn't Indy anymore. That's akin to being drunk on alcohol. Thus, Indy probably couldn't remember that much of this adventure if you think about it. Nor did his psyche want to remember any of it. The supernatural magic of this movie was also not anything like the Ark of the Covenant's supernatural power. View all replies >
