      I love this flick as well. I don't get why it has so many haters. The first time I watched it, I couldn't get to sleep that night because my mind was overrun with a torrent of conclusions I was making regarding the storyline's many twists.

          There are people that don't like this movie!?!?

          Its so fucking heavy... I love it. Heavy, deep, dark, philosophical. My kind of movie. I just got finished watching it... I have chills. Honest to goodness chills.

            This was such a bizarre movie. I need to watch again, it's been awhile.

                  Haha, such a good line.

                  Matt- I want to redact my statement about Eternal Spotless Sunshine of the Mind. Its actually not THAT bad of a movie.

                  Punch Drunk Love, Lost in Translation, and Little Miss Sunshine are terrible, terrible movies. They take themselves way too seriously, and in the case of Little Miss Sunshine... it gives itself way too much credit for being witty and ironic. You can just tell that the filmmakers were sitting back thinking:

                  "Woah ho ho... look how awesome this is... a drug addict grandfather, a teen that doesn't talk, a motivational speaker, a guy that just tried to kill himself and a little girl all driving in this funky bus. God damn we're witty. People are going to fucking flip! Oh, oh... lets make the guy that tried to kill himself gay. That'll really blow their asses!"

                  I don't think Donnie Darko is of that ilk at all. There was a quality movie with lots of thought and care taken with the writing and execution of the film, and it shows.

                  Its not a bunch of jackasses trying to make a movie to show how fucking clever they are.

                  Oh, and don't get me started on Lost in Translation! FUCK...

                  They should have called it "2 Hours of People Walking Around Looking at Shit".

                    It's a movie with depth to it. some scenes made me sort of uncomfortable.

                    but then again it could have been the effects of the Mr. Pibb and peanut butter cups.

                      Your description of Little Miss Sunshine sums up exactly how I feel about almost every Kevin Smith movie. Especially Dogma.

                      "Check it out! A GIRL as God, Stoners as the prophets, Angels that use guns and cuss a lot, and a monster made out of shit! How hip and unconventional! Now if I can only convince Chris Rock to scream at the top of his lungs for every line, I'll have a hit. College kids in coffee shops EVERYWHERE will be talking about how clever the whole goddamn thing is!"

                        I own the director's cut of Donnie Darko. There's transitions in the film that really do help. They're excerpts from the book in the movie. The movie does become much deeper.

                            Yeah I love Donnie Darko too. I can really relate to Donnie.

                            P.S. You pixie, on the other hand, are totally wrong about "Little Miss Sunshine." I own it and my dad and younger brother love it too. They make the family one of the screwdest ever but we still found a way to relate to them and love them.

                              How could he be wrong? It's an opinion.

                                Also, kerfootb, good for you. You bought into what you were being sold. I'm just more critical than you and your dad and your younger brother, which both seem lovely.

                                  I didn't like Donnie Darko, sorry. I couldn't relate to the characters at all and the time travel thing with metal and water seemed tacked on.

                                    but then again it could have been the effects of the Mr. Pibb and peanut butter cups.


                                    Mmmmm, Mr. Pibb. Now there's a beverage you don't see very often. Same goes for Jolt cola.

                                    Anyway, D.D. was a great film and remember how freaked out I was by the story line of the film, but that made it all the more intriguing. The story of what would happen if you were for a brief time, in control of your destiny. Donnie Darko cheated death only to face it again with no prior knowledge of it happening once the Tangent Universe had collapsed. Anything that had happened, never happened, anyone that he met, would never have met him. But as Donnie had told Cherita Chen "Everything will be better for you someday." it was so. Not to mention through this film was answered one of the universe's greatest mysteries. How did Smurfs reproduce?

                                    I wonder if we all weren't a part of Ilovethepixies own Tangent Universe. The only difference is that we will never forget him.

                                      My favorite movie of all time, ive seen it so many times yet I have so many questions. I own the dvd, which is weird for me, I usually just download movies. I only BUY epic movies. It has so many great special features.

                                      I also loved Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but its not as watchable as Donnie Darko.

                                        I liked where it was going, then towards the end it hit a quick left turn and I fell outta the car!
