    Very good, watch it in your teen years for maximum impact. Responses in this thread will be varied from genuine hate to "I liked it before it was cool and now I hate it because everyone else likes it."

    I think it's fairly enjoyable. Haven't watched in a while, but I had my period of being pretty into it. Like llama alluded to, it's one of those movies that gets a bad rap for being "trendy", but sowutttt.

    Best part - "HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS!!!!"

    Very good movie. I kinda want to see the sequel, but it'll probably be disappointing.

    Great movie, if you pay attention. Will make your head spin a little. It's like "Twin Peaks" as a scifi-thriller-dark-comedy.

    I'll grant it's not for everyone. I've met some people who just plain didn't "get it" at all.

    Good enough movie, though really overrated by alot of its fans and damn near ruined by the Hot Topic crowd.

    I didn't get it until the second time I watched it. It took a while to appreciate the subtleties. Since then it's become one of my favorite films. It also helps that movies that take place in the '80s are guilty pleasures of mine.

    If you really liked Donnie Darko, do not watch S. Darko. The new director literally copied the plot structure and recurring elements of D. Darko, but managed to strip it of reason or motivation. The petty dialogue and manipulated dead scenes didn't add to it, either.

    I thought it was a decent movie with some neat ideas, but it definitely wasn't good enough to justify all the hype and there were a number of parts that dragged for me. Not bad or mediocre, but not a favorite and not something I could see ever watching again.

    I enjoyed it but I don't see why it got all the hype it did.
