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.
An Interview with Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment
“Yes sir, Lloyd’s come a long way from his days as a location executive, to the head of the longest running independent movie company in America. Troma’s movies cover almost every subject matter, with lots of sex and violence thrown in, all for budgets that wouldn’t buy lunch in most studios.”Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)
“Socrates was a firm believer in teaching by asking, ‘Why?’ Darren Lynn Bousman is a firm believer in teaching by asking, ‘Would you be capable of figuring this out without me here to hold your hand’?”Source Code (2011)
“Just like before, Duncan Jones delves into some heady sci-fi concepts. And alas, just as before, he crafts another film that entertains despite having a story that doesn’t quite seem to have been completely thought through.”Heaven is for Real is really dumb
“If there’s one quality that entertainment for Christians shares with video games made for pre-teen girls, it’s the idea that conflict is a dirty word.”Interview with Rowby Goren, Writer for Pink Lady ...and Jeff
“You may or may not be aware of this, but I’ve talked a lot of shit about Pink Lady ...and Jeff. So much so, that one of the writers felt the need to set the record straight. So I now get the chance to pick the mind of someone who was a writer for Laugh-In, directed a movie starring a current U.S. Senator, wrote alongside Sid Caesar, and won an Emmy for writing jokes on Hollywood Squares.”Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “Rust Never Sleeps”
“Guys, the French hate the Eiffel Tower. The average Parisian thinks it’s an eyesore. Guy de Maupassant used to eat at their restaurant every day just so he wouldn’t have to look at the damn thing! If you collapse it, they’ll probably send you a gift basket.”
