Donnie Darko Voted Third Most Confusing Movie of All Time

Not making the list?  Bubble Boy, surprisingly enough.  For years I've been lying awake at night wondering why the snow globe that Chloe gives Jimmy has water in it in some scenes and doesn't in others...  Mind = blown.

The full list is HERE.

In other news...HA!  Totally kidding!  There is no other news.  So let's all watch the Donnie Darko production diary dance (at least it's topical):

Thanks to Vanessa for the link!

IHJ also has 4 new pictures of Jake from 2001, if you're so interested. I not interested. And judging by the reaction every time I've tried to make old stuff interesting, I'm guessing you guys aren't either. But there's the link just in case! :)

I agree. Bubble Boy should be on the list cuz how DOES he take a dump in that thing??

IHJ needs to scrounge up some Jake circa 2004. Loves.

There is so much of Bubble Boy that has yet to be explained!

And no offense to IHJ, without whom the internet would have no pictures of Jake, but maybe Jake with an orange scarf tucked into his jacket should have been left in the vaults... *shakes head sadly*

Awwww, I live the orange scarf! Jake getting all whimsical with it! Maybe the scarf was a gift and he just had to get his pic taken in it at least once? Sigh. Ok, I tried!!!

Miffed67 July 22, 2010 at 1:09 PM  

Damn iPhone! LOVE, I meant!

Well, the scarf looks shabby, SO it's hard to imagine it was a gift, but who knows? I do know this, regardless of said scarf, the 2001 Jake is still beautiful & has amazing hair. Geez, that man has the most beautiful hair PERIOD. Although I prefer it longer, I even love the Pilot hairstyle.

Mo, you took the words right out of my mouth, that has ALWAYS been a nagging thought of mine every time I watch that movie!

I always LMAO every time I watch that video of him "dancing" on the DD set. It just cracks me up EVERY TIME. Don't you know there MUST be a lot of gagreels from all his movies that they have kept from us? I would especially love to see any deleted scenes or outtakes from Highway. OMG, that would really make my day.

Gee, I didn't say it was given to him the day before his pic was taken. And have you seen the jeans they sell at abercrombie & fitch and American Eagle these days? They look shabby and are yet brand new! Hmmmmmm, stuff to think about!

Vanessa,  July 22, 2010 at 3:41 PM  

Miffed67, that is true, & Jake seems to have always marched to the beat of his own drum, plus he did that Goth look back then for a short time too.

I've always been a fan of frayed & tattered jeans & think they look pretty good on the right people. Sorry, I'm just not fond of that scarf, but he wears it well like he wears EVERYTHING, (even when he isn't wearing ANYTHING). >;-)

Becky Heineke July 22, 2010 at 4:15 PM  

Ah, see? I told you IHJ should have kept those pictures locked away. It's an evil scarf. It divides people. :(

Leslie July 22, 2010 at 5:09 PM  

Yeah, those are Jake with the "old nose." It looks more like a chamois cloth to me - meant to hide something maybe? (Offensive t-shirt, hickey on his neck, etc.)

It totally doesnt surprise me about Donnie Darko coming in third.. last time i watched it i swore that i figured it out... now i cant remember!!!

Wow, that video... he was SO young! Im not sure he should take up professional irish dancing anytime soon... i think i prefered him in the yellow suit of the Jimmy show not long ago....

Vanessa,  July 22, 2010 at 6:25 PM  

Oh Mo, that is SO true! NOT SMASHING!!! That video always cracks me up, I love to just open it now & then to get a laugh, his face is too funny when he yells out SMASHING! hahaha... Thanks for bringing that up. >;-)

I can see vanilla skys, and donnie darko, but a clock work orange? and the martix:revolutions? those wern't confusing :P

And that vid always gives me little giggles :3

Becky Heineke July 22, 2010 at 9:39 PM  

I'm not sure why it was that I never saw Vanilla Sky, but this list makes me want to see it...

SAM! Next time you have a Donnie Darko revelation, I hereby order you to share all of your insight with us. :D

Regarding Jake's nose, I wasn't sure about work, because he was always gorgeous -- I thought he just "grew into it"! So I did some online research. Speculation, but nothing definitive. Hmmm, I wrote an ode to Jake's penis (which I probably shouldn't post); maybe I should write one to his nose! And eyes...and lips...and get the picture, LOL!

gyllenhaalisgr8 July 23, 2010 at 7:05 AM  

Been searching through my thousands and thousands of Jake pics and I can't find a hideous nose among them....

Miffed67 July 23, 2010 at 1:06 PM  

Did he have nose work? I'm always so unobservant, I NEVER notice that kind of stuff!
