there's this 6ft rabbit who seems to be guiding our hero, Donnie
Darko, out of danger and telling him when his world is about to
end and then there's a twist at the end and oh my Gawd look out
there's a plane about to... aaarrggghhhh!...
our panel of critics thought
flew with an airline like that once."
missed opportunity for a good Bugs Bunny joke: Rabbit says: 'EEErrrr,
what's up Dark'?' Are they playing for laughs or wot?"
cuddly Hollywood rabbits go I am not a fan. I much prefer Thumper
this why Harvey the rabbit was invisible in Hollywood's classic
1950's black and white movie romp? It would have scared the willies
out of that nice Cary Grant."
knew a man with teeth like that once."
So, that doctor from ER is now pretending to be a teacher? Pull
the other one, mate, you're not qualified!"
Gyllenhaal, the guy who plays Donnie Darko, has an uncanny ability
to look completely asleep when he is completely awake. Bravisimo!
Or is this a device used by the director to 'telegraph' to the audience
that this is all a dream? I wish I had stayed awake now in my media
studies movie course."
disappointment if you hoped Patrick Swayzee would do some more Dirty
Dancing©. He barely lifts a leg."
since the legendary Bobby Ewing shower room scene in 1980's tv's
popular Dallas, have
we been so tricked into thinking that something has happened when
it hasn't. This time, thank goodness, it was only 1 hour and 50
minutes of my life wasted."
tell me the ending or whole plot if necessary
(If you don't want to know the twist in this movie go straight to
the next section):
the first airplane crash to the second is all a dream.
was killed in the first plane crash, so the unlikely event of it
happening twice suddenly dawns on you that it must all have been
a strange dream... and the look on his mother's face at the end
(he had just called her a bitch the last time they had spoken) is
is it supposed to be a dream sequence, or an alternative reality,
a split in the time continuum alluded to in the narrative? No...
it must be a dream because of the rabbit... or must it...? is the
rabbit the gatekeeper of the time continuum? damn and blast... does
this mean we'll have to listen to the directors commentary? Did
Star Trek ever do this?
Quotable quotes (real)
got eggs, water balloons and a dozen rolls of toilet paper..."
"Why are you wearing that stupid rabbit suit?" Rabbit:
"Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?"
nicely done movie, quite classy in it's own way, excellent soundtrack
with a nice twist at the end. Up there with Sixth Sense.
