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.
S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale (2009)
“It’s clear the filmmakers saw Donnie Darko, and literally no other movie ever made.”The top 10 films of 2014
“2014 was a great year for movies. So much so that making my top ten list this year was torturous (well, more torturous than usual).”Pink Lady... and Jeff “Episode #5”
“Honestly, I think Jeff Altman might have been the only person left who still thought this show was a good idea.”Road House (1989)
"This might be the first film I've ever seen that makes me constantly look around to make sure I'm not on hidden camera."Pink Lady... and Jeff “The Lost Episode”
“We’re lucky the show didn’t get a second season, or else we might have had to see Charlotte Rae pistol-whip an infant, or Red Skelton sodomize a leprechaun with a chainsaw.”Amazing Stories “Life on Death Row”
"You might notice that the plot, about a convicted killer on death row with the power to heal people, is strikingly similar to the premise of Stephen King's serial novel The Green Mile. I haven't read the books, but the episode is very different from the movie based on them. For one thing, it’s 25 minutes long. For another, it stars Patrick Swayze."
