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.
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."Fear by L. Ron Hubbard
"You see it time and again in every internet bio of L. Ron Hubbard that he was just some “obscure science-fiction author” who just happened to stumble onto the biggest money making concern since sliced bread. Putting everything else aside, that’s simply not true. Not only was he one of the founding fathers of modern sci-fi, but that wasn’t even what he was famous for."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. ”North Korea owns Hollywood, apparently
“We can’t send the message that we can be threatened into submission, or that anyone, much less Kim Jong-un, has immunity from satire. ”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).”S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale (2009)
“It’s clear the filmmakers saw Donnie Darko, and literally no other movie ever made.”
