When I saw the title of this thread, all I could think of was "Darth Vader let's the rebels make films?" :doh:

y'know what worries me? I've SEEN most of those films.

I enjoyed a few of them.. most were ho-hum, though. Dark Star was probably teh strangest of the lot.

Thats saying something! Especially as donnie darko was about a teenage superhero who slipped via a wormhole into a doomed alternate dimension and saves everything and everyone from its fate via the help of a six foot bunny with a dodgy eye only he can see!

I've seen many of them but haven't caught "Donnie Darko" yet. The last time I was in a video rental store I looked for a copy to no avail.
