Welcome back to Movie Duels, in which we watch two dueling movies and offer our eminently qualified opinion of which film, if any, has a reason for existing, and which one should have been left back at the pitch …

The ongoing trend of big budget comic book movies has had its ups and downs, and one major down for many fans has been the 2011 reboot of the '30s-era pulp crimefighter the Green Hornet, starring comedic actor Seth Rogen as a much goofier Green Hornet than we've ever seen before.

In what could be considered a counterpoint to Mr. Mendo's own review, Cheapus takes a look at Donnie Darko, which he happily admits has its fair share of problems (EXPLAIN YOURSELF EVERY ONCE AND A WHILE, WHY DON'T YOU), but he believes the film still has much about it to recommend.
“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.”
