Tila Tequila before all the coke

Donnie Darko is a hard one to  call.It does have a cult following and it’s one of them indie film that crossed into mainstream.When i watch it i go from “this is a shit film” to “this is a pretty good film”.I think it’s mainly to do with the special effects.The SFX are really really shit in this.It looks like they got the alien out of  The  Abyss to do a massive cameo for the film.But then you have the plot or story which seems alright and a bit original.If you haven’t seen it then it’s about a teenager who has a mental breakdown and believes he gets told the date when the world ends.Mad innit?I hate a film that has to rely heavily on the soundtrack to engage the viewer.Tarantino does it All the time.A musical score is way better.Makes it less an MTV music video and into something more.

IMDB RATING      –     8.1
MY RATING     –     8.2
SEEN BEFORE     –     YES
RECOMMEND?     –     YES
OVERALL     –  OK.WORTH A WATCH.ORIGINAL FOR IT’S TIME.
