Ripley's movie review

This one is hard to review, partly because Ice and I have very different interpretations of the ending. We both think that it would probably help to see the movie more than once and I'd be willing to do that. Gyllenhaal gave an excellent performance, as did everyone else, and the story was fascinating.

Definitely worth watching.

Newt's movie review

Is Donnie a paranoid schizophrenic or is he really seeing a time travelling six foot tall evil-looking bunny who foretells the end of the world? Yeah, alright, wha? The depictions of highschool life are accurate but everything outside of that is just plain weird. Make a point to not see it regardless of the big name cast. I mean it.
