    I don't really think that is right tbh. When Donnie is talking to the teacher Donnie (I think) say's something about a path that everyone takes and that God chooses one for you. I think it shows you the path that God chose for him and the life path that he could of been given.

    what i dont get still though is he sees the aeroplane where the egnine comes form at the end.. very confusing but good

    Best movie of all times...
    I don't agree completely with this analysis. I actually have a theory which explains everything except one thing: How Frank as a ghost woke Donnie, since if he hadn't he'd never become a ghost. I'm too lazy to type it, though.
    Gretchen = cute, I totally agree.

    Yeah she is kinda sweet I spose, Donnie's sister is better tho :yum:. You can see more of her in the cast interviews in the extras. P.s, here's the Donnie Darko

    personally I've always rated the offical website, especially for the conversation about missing aircraft engines.

    Fight Club is a terrible film, it makes no sense at all.

    But, back to Donnie, I quite liked it, but, well I did think it was self indulgent crap in terms of the "deeper meaning", its deep in terms of teen agnst poetry is deep.

    The twist at the end is un-guessable because its stupid.

    You've got to accept that he has all these followers even though he has extended conversations with himself while they are there and does things like fight himself in the street.

    Tripe.

    haha. Me too! I watched it the other night with a load of lads and only one got it. He was trying to explain it to us but I just couldnt understand at all. I really liked the film though!

    I think I'll be downloading that text thing and then watching it again :D

    some films aren't meant to be understood.
    that's the beauty of them!
    does everything need to have an explanation?
    the world would be a boring place if everything had an answer to it. but obviously that's never going to happen.
    i don't think the intention of these films were for you to go on the internet looking for your answers!! they're meant to leave you wondering.. not making a trip to google.com.
    use your imagination.

    ahem.

    I''m going to be the odd one out here and say I really did not like the film - I mean my family got the DVD ages ago coz they said it was suppose to be really good and when I watched it with them.... have to say I was really disappointed in it.

    The story was dead, felt there was no meaning to it and it just dragged :eek2:

    If you read my post you will know that I wasnt a great fan of it either.

    It just smacked of trying to be really deep, even though plainly it was some crap idea thought up in about 2 mins.

    Well I didnt think it was terrible, visually it was quite good, the plot was just crap.

    Blimey me and the bro were quite confused-we thought he had to be killed so as to save his friends/family-like gretchen etc. Thats why he turned back time and went back to bed to be killed. BUt readin the plot I dowloaded makes more sense-I didn't even think about divin intervention-but even so-why did it all happen then-I mean would he not have been there in bed in the first time if frank hadnt called him out?!

    Anyways I enjoyed the film (esp as I never knew noah wyle was in it-pleasent surprise!) and will no doubt atch it again to try to get some of the things i missed!
