Donnie Darko Re-Release
Kick ASS! (although I don't like this disturbing trend amongst directors of the releasing the movie after releasing the movie, and changing the effects/adding scenes)
but I do dig this movie so.......
LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- "Donnie Darko," a cult drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a disturbed teenager, is getting a new theatrical release, featuring 20 minutes of never-before-seen footage.
Newmarket Films, which released the film in 2001, is unveiling a director's cut at the Seattle Film Festival on May 29. It plans to release the film theatrically in Seattle before moving into other markets later in the summer.
The new version will also have new visual effects and music.
"Even though I am proud of the theatrical version of the film, I've always felt that the story was somewhat compromised in order to come in under two hours," said "Darko" writer-director Richard Kelly. "With this version I feel like I've finally been able to complete the film."

I like the fact that I might be able to see it in the theater this time, missed it first time around.

I did not know too much about this movie, but saw it while browsing at Blockbuster this weekend and remember seeing some mention of it here. It looks like it was originally released around 9/01, so for obvious reasons it must have come and gone at theaters.
Amazing movie, one of the best I have seen in a long time. It's good to have the mind messed with. I did not check out the extra features on the DVD, but I will be adding this to the library.
Though nothing like Donnie Darko, I also rented The Mayor of the Sunset Strip a documentary about Rodney Bingenheimer, I thinks he is currently a DJ at KROQ, but has been on the LA scene since the 60s. Lot of good cameos and classic footage. It's sort of a sad story, Rodney has been in the music scene for a long time and it appears help alot of people get into the business and helped alot of people get laid, but he has not realized much financial success and it appears that he's pretty lonely. Good move nonetheless.

donnie darko hit me like a frieght train. i was mezmerized by the pace, the general feeling i got from watching it, storytelling, score, characters, the whole damn package. having some insane friends growing up also helped me feel it too. when it first was released i felt like i was on the payrole, trying to get people to see it evertime movie talk became the focus of the conversation.
i'm stoked the diretors cut is out, but i liked the original version so much i'm scared he ruined it (not really thinking this happened)

Just saw the movie for the first time. I've heard of this movie before but thought it was an older movie and never searched it out before. Well with my new HD TV with QAM tuner I'm able to get 10 pay-per-view movie channels free at times. The tuner will periodically be able to decode each channel at random times and sometimes I can watch a whole movie and sometimes I can only watch part of a movie before it cuts out. But considering its free I'm not complaining.
Any way I caught this movie near the beginning and was hooked immediately I probably missed the first 20 minutes or so, but damn was it good. The music seemed to add a lot to the tone of the movie and way the story progressed was engrossing.
This was as good of a surprise to me as when my TV first decoded real porn (not that shitty skinnemax porn)."It's not that she said anything that wasn't true, it's that what she did say has almost no relation to the truth." - Rubicon

doooood, mind=blown. fantastic flick. I HAVE to watch the movie with the commentary and some special features later, but it was frickin great.
i see why it came and went if it was released on 9/01 with some of the issues of the movie probably hitting people hard...weird.
I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad

Is this the same as the Director's Cut which appeared on DVD a year or so back?
I don't want to have to buy a 3rd version

I got stuck trying to get into level 3. I know the word, but I don't know where to go to apply it. I just get the "go back to menu" button. Maybe I didn't pay close enough attention.another Handsome Boy graduate
