    • 10/10 - One of your very favorite movies of all time. Top 10.
    • 9/10 - Killer fucking movie. Everyone should watch it.
    • 8/10 - Great movie. Maybe one of the best released that year.
    • 7/10 - Very good movie, but not quite great.
    • 6/10 - Pretty good. You might enjoy the occasional watch, or tune in if you happen to catch it on cable.
    • 5/10 - It's okay, but maybe not something you'll go out of your way to watch.
    • 4/10 - Meh. There's plenty of better alternatives to this.
    • 3/10 - Not very good.
    • 2/10 - Not your cup of tea at all. Some people might like this, but you are not one of them.
    • 1/10 - Horrible in every way.
    • 0/10 - The Citizen Kane of painful experiences. You'd rather shove an icepick in your retinas than watch this.

Also, if any PC watchdogs noticed my trend of picking movies that were made by white males, starting white males, trust me when I say it is hard selecting movies that resonate with the audience of mostly white males that make up this board that DON'T mostly trend that way

I've only seen like 1/5th of it, might watch it by myself one of these days.

Donnie Darko is good, I wish it had better acting, it would be a killer movie otherwise, story is a little weird but in a good way, setting is fantastic and music as well, it's just the acting that I find very cheesy at times.

Since you got me thinking about movies with surreal elements I nominate my favorite, Mulholland Dr.

I would be one of those. Gummo is weird surrealist trash. It is a movie you feel dirty after watching. 

On topic, @RH nailed it. Donny Darko was for the emos. It is well made though. 4/10

Second vote for They Live. Or Big Trouble in Little China.
