    I Loved the Psychological Aspect of It

    Donnie Darko is a really deep movie that one may not understand just by viewing it once. In my case, I had my boyfriend answer my questions from "time" to "time" so I was not as confused. It was a very good movie and it is very exceptional. Definitely one of...

    Donnie Darko was amazing.  I think it's one of the best movies ever made.  Very thought provoking; still sends chills down my spine; the bunny suit still freaks me out though especially after he takes off the mask in the theater and he's been shot in the eye.

    LOVE.  I'm still at a loss for words when it comes to this film, so I'll just leave it at that for now.  May add more later.

    Turned Me Trance

    Whenever i watch this movie i always get inspired but most of all i always end up staring into space and remove myself from reality. This movie always makes me want to run away into the hills and sit for hours thinking about life.

    Whats Not to Love!

    Has to be my all time favourite film.......I could never tire of it. Leaves a lot to the imagination, very clever. Soundtrack is amazing also- my fav being 'The Killing Moon' by Echo and the Bunneymen, so emotive

    First of all, Papa Smurf didn’t create Smurfette. Gargamel did. She was sent in as Gargamel’s evil spy with the intention of destroying the Smurf village. But the overwhelming goodness of the Smurf way of life transformed her. And as for the whole gang-bang scenario - It just...

    I'm a massive movie buff and Donnie Darko is right at the top. The movie never stops me from thinking.. Just when I think I have got it, something else comes to mind and I'm left lingering.. and always fascinated.. I love meeting people who's interpretations on life are somewhat...

    I discovered this movie years ago by accident. I was looking for oddball video at the library to watch one weekend back in the very early 2000's. I watched it that night and immediately rewatched it a second time to see everything I missed. I was just as into the movie as I'd...

    Really can make you think. It should have been one of a kind, they shouldn't have made a sequel.  I shouldn't have watched that sequal.

    I was never big into movies, but I love to turn on one of the subscription channels for an unknown movie to nap to. This is how I came about Donnie Darko. I will now watch this whenever it comes on, no matter how many times it does.
