Why Donnie Darko donnie SUCKOS according to Phil Ranta episode 212 GTSC podcast

1h 28m | Nov 25, 2023

Why is Donnie Darko so beloved and why does Phil Ranta feel it's unjustly revered??

We're back and Phil Ranta returns to assail one of the most recently beloved cult classics, Donnie Darko. Phil gets on a soapbox and methodically elucidates why this Jake Gyllenhaal and Maggie Gyllenhaal time travel movie ain't no Back to the Future. Phil explains why Frank the rabbit completely screws up the space time continuum, why this movie sends a terrible message to teens with suicidal thoughts, what the hell is going on with the Patrick Swayze role, and how Drew Barrymore's antics wouldn't even be tolerated in 1988, let alone 2023.

Sitting in with Kevin Gootee is his all time favorite co-host, Kevin Israel. Can Phil get the hat trick with his 3rd gutting? Or is his argument worse than Seth Rogen playing the role of a bully in this film. Yep, this happened.

Is this the best recent cult classic? Are you tired of clickbait-y questions? Too bad, we've got more with some laughs. So tell a friend why you love this podcast. 

Do you think Phil stands a chance in taking out the knees of this beloved indie classic? Let's see if Lisa can Gut...the..sacred...cow!
