I have heard so many conflicting things about this movie but the trailer looked interesting.

yeah it got pretty beat up with reviews when it debuted at some film festival last year. its been about a year since then and i think it went through major reshoots and cuts. it looks weird as shit but donnie darko was too. i'd see it.

I can't make my mind up about this one. I think I will give it a shot on Netflix.

From what I read, it's a deep and dense movie. Not mindless entertainment, you have to think this one through.

i saw it last weekend. it's probably the weirdest film i've ever seen. I still don't get everything that happened in it, but it took me about 3 times to understand donnie darko.

just got done watching it and I enjoyed it. It was bizarre but interesting. How are the books? I saw that there are about 3 or 4 of them on amazon. Does this movie just cover one of them or did it cover several?

i ordered the comic on amazon - the story goes that as the director was finishing up the screenplay and filming he realized there was a huge backstory to the movie that we never see - and the movie is split up into 3 'chapters' -

so he renamed those 4, 5 and 6, then got a deal and released 3 comics ~100pages each titled 1, 2, and 3 that serve as the prequel - haven't gotten them yet but i imagine they'll deal with things like

roland kidnapping boxer and subsequent scenes in the desert, the setup with the baron hiring krysta now and the relationship between krysta, boxer and their screenplay. also backstory with the neo marxists characters and maybe a bit more on abilene and the war stuff with roland...

also on amazon ' Southland Tales: The Prequel Saga' - collects all 3 of the comic books - which came out individually last year in regular installments.

The movie was made at least 2 years ago at this point. It's just never been released more than on like 2 screens.

EDIT: Just checked Netflix, and it looks like it's coming out on DVD in a week and a half.

Kevin Smith had something to do with this movie, but for the life of me I can't remember what it is, and I'm too lazy to look it up. To sum up: I like toast.
