Donnie Darko (2001)
28 days... 6 hours... 42 minutes... 12 seconds. That... is when the world... will end.
So basically: One night, Donnie Darko follows a visibly challenged, 6 foot bunny rabbit named Frank out of his house. Frank tells Donnie that the world will end in twenty-eight days. The next morning, after waking up at a golf course, Donnie returns home to find a jet engine has fallen into his bedroom; if he had been there he would have been killed. Throughout the next 28 days, Donnie tries to figure out who Frank is and why he has been spared. His journey takes him to a book called The Philosophy of Time Travel by a local woman who everything thinks is crazy.
What an colossal overrated piece of hogwash! The acting is terrible, the main character is an annoying emo kid, and the plot is just uninteresting. Yep.
This has no right to be on the list whatsoever. I get it's a cult classic and everything, that's fine. Let it stay that way.
Ziggi seal of disapproval!
