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.

“It’s clear the filmmakers saw Donnie Darko, and literally no other movie ever made.”The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)
“Catching Fire is a far superior, more adult film than The Hunger Games, as we see the young characters we recognize from the first film grow into the people that could potentially help shape a new world. In particular, we watch as Katniss begins to believe in the power she could wield, and we wonder if this mockingjay has finally spread her wings.”Looper (2012)
“In some ways, it’s like the Goodfellas of time travel films—a compelling drama and character study of people we would never want to cross paths with in real life. ”The NeverEnding Story III: Escape from Fantasia (1994)
"Devoid of more source material to butcher, the filmmakers apparently decided to ignore what had come before and knock-off Power Rangers."An Interview with Piers Anthony
"But for the most part, he's gotten a bad rap. Sure, his books are pervy to the extreme (not that I'm complaining), but his characters are remarkably easy to spend time with, so if you can keep your sensibilities from being offended too much in the first few chapters of any given Xanth story, it's worth it in the end."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.”
