I've become a fan of Richard Kelly's quirky 2001 cult hit.  Probably one of the better teen schizo/time travel/near-miss plane engine disaster/six-foot rabbit flicks out there.  I can't really see a sequel, though.

Well, hush mah mouth!!

Donnie Dark, along with Boondock Saints, two of my favorite movies, but two of the LAST movies I feel should have sequils made of. I wish they would just leave well enough alone.

I agree, DARKO doesn't seem to lend itself well to a sequel.  I'll keep an open mind, but I don't have much hope for it.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

Well, I guess it's official...

Weeell... at least they actually got Daveigh Chase to reprise the role, but still, the whole thing just seems gratuitous.  Plus, it's not even being written by the guy who did the original, get the feeling some did a "behind the scenes" deal to get this made.

Maybe if I sit in the corner, cover my ears and go 'lalalalalalalallala' it'll go away...
