Donnie Darko (2001)

Mr. Mendo is back to take on yet another overrated indie film: Donnie Darko, the needlessly obtuse story of a schizophrenic boy, the 6-foot rabbit that visits him in the night, and the jet engine that falls on him. Also, there’s some stuff in here about time travel and the end of the world. And Patrick Swayze is a child molesting motivational speaker. This synopsis makes more sense than the movie.
American Sniper is not the real Chris Kyle, and that’s okay
“I kind of hate that people are assuming that the film is trying to sanctify Chris Kyle by portraying him not as he was, but as, well, Bradley Cooper trying to finally win an Oscar. ”Why the Airlines have Bigger Problems than Fat Movie Directors! by Lloyd Kaufman
“The recent flap about Kevin Smith, director of Clerks and Chasing Amy, being chased off an airplane because he is too fat is kind of hilarious. A Troma maxim of screenwriting is that fat + fart = funny, and I am certain that Kevin Smith, the fatty that he is, probably farted at the time he was the ejected = ha ha!”Bonekickers
“The show had, shall we say, a less than stellar relationship with the world history it was attempting to depict. Though, that may have had less to do with the writers and more to do with having to somehow squeeze so much historical skullduggery into the backstory of Bath, a former Roman settlement in Somerset located just off the highway between the exits for Fuck and All.”This is the End (2013): Bropocalypse now
“While the actors/friends onscreen are clearly having the time of their lives, it doesn’t really carry over to those of us watching at home.”The Box (2009)
“There’s not much to Richard Matheson’s original short story, but a movie version certainly could have expanded upon the premise and become a smart, taut conspiracy thriller... in the hands of the right screenwriter and director. Instead, the story was adapted by writer-director Richard Kelly.”Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)
“Without the hook of the internet-famous ad, it’s doubtful that many people would have heard or cared about this sporadically funny and rather unassuming film.”
