And that is the reason Jake gets a free pass from me for life. He can make any stupid piece of crap he wants and I will always answer with, "Well he was Donnie Darko." 'nuff said.
I liked 'Source Code' and 'Prince of Persia'. I thought the latter really came around full circle with it's story and was a very satisfying live action Disney adventure.
HERE is what I said about 'Donnie Darko' years ago. Except for my post being one very long paragraph I stand by what I said about this film. It really is one I can watch whenever I come across it on the satellite. I still take something new away from the movie each and every time. Both Jake and Jenna Malone (Rocket in 'Sucker Punch') are terrific as the doomed boyfriend/girlfriend.
Gretchen - "Donnie Darko...what kind of name is that? It sounds like some kind of superhero or something."
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
