Movie Review: "Deadpool 2" is a Garrulous, Charismatic Sequel
If you’ve come to this point in your life and haven’t seen this 2001 cult-classic, you’ve been missing out on one of the biggest mind-blowing movies of this century. The movie focuses on 16-year-old Donnie Darko who is woken up by Frank, a man in a giant horrifying bunny suit. Frank then goes on to tell Donnie that the world is going to end in 28 days and that he must save it. From there, the plot turns into a multi-layered journey of love, teenage angst, and the possible apocalypse of the universe.
‘Donnie Darko’ is packed with stars like Jake Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore and Patrick Swayze and also served as Seth Rogen’s cinematic debut. While the movie now has passionate fans, when it first hit theaters the responses were subpar. This is possibly because of a plotline that revolved around a plane crash and the movie coming out only a month after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But three years later Richard Kelly, the director, released his own cut of the film on DVD which ignited the massive cult following. Since then, the movie has been the subject of many Halloween and midnight screenings.

This last weekend, ‘Donnie Darko’ returned to select theaters around the country for a limited time. This will serve as a sort of redemption for the movie to “allow a modern classic to finally receive the treatment it deserves.”
Personally, I think this film is timeless. I’ve re-watched it probably a dozen times (not an exaggeration) and every time, I find a new aspect of the story that I didn’t notice before. Also, the film touches on a lot of different topics: the validity of God, mental illness, bullying and mortality. These darker themes, mixed in with the youthfulness and teenage bliss of the characters makes Darko a perfect balance of a movie that audience members can relate to, but also enjoy. And forewarning, no matter how many times you watch the ending, you will not fully get it…ever.
Whether you’ve already seen ‘Donnie Darko’ or not, go find a theater that will a part of the limited showings and indulge yourself into one of the most classic movies of the last 20 years.
