Oh, piffle.  

Do I have to know what "Blade Runner" is a rip-off of to enjoy it?  Do I
have to realize that "The Terminator" doesn't have a startlingly
original plot line?  Literacy is more than knowing Philip K. Dick from
Harlan Ellison.

Anyway, I thought the smiley-face made it obvious: my opinion was that
the movie was fun, but really stupid.

Getting back to Twin Peaks:  Are we sure that the victim that wasn't
killed was actually attacked by the same person?  She didn't have a
letter under her fingernail...
