Why the fuck do dog stories always end in death? Where the Red Fern Grows, Stone Fox, even My Dog Skip though Skip at least lives a long life and dies in his sleep.

Because dogs have short lifespans and so if you get a dog and you're not 90, you get him knowing it's gonna die on you and that part of it sucks so they all play off it.

Damn, that is rough. I won't even bother seeing movies like that since Ol' Yeller when I was a kid. Something about pets, especially dogs, dying is worse than anything for the ol' heartstrings. :sniff:


Ever seen Where the Red Fern Grows? It's damn sad, too.


Yeah, dude. Every kid in America has read that book.

I was asking about the movie, not the book, Mateus.

There's a statue there. I think it's off Shibuya station or something like that. It's a story probably every Japanese person knows.

There was a Futurama episode that was a take-off on that story. It was pretty poignant too.

I don't know why, but this part of Donnie Darko gets me...

Am I the only one that didn't get Donnie Darko? I know it was trendy for a while to talk about what a "powerful'' movie it was and shit like that but i've no idea what was going on...no need to explain it cause i forgot everything in it except some giant rabbit...fuck that movie and the tools that think they're awesome for ''getting it''

I don't know if I "got it," but I figured enough out in the story to figure out what was going on. And I don't think I'm awesome for doing so.

yeah i like the movie a lot, but people took it waaaaaaaaay too seriously.

after further review of the film (i usually watch it like twice a year) i consider the whole time travel bit a bit of a macguffin, to me it is simply a plot device to wrap donnie's insanity around to make sure its presence is felt throughout the film. the movie is really about the characters in this suburban town, and how the interact with each other. there's some great dialogue, some great music... and thats enough for me to like it. people's search for deeper meaning in the whole thing, or theories on time travel, or what happened at the end is ultimately pointless because it does not exist.

at any rate, the wiki has a number of answers, particularly the director's interpretation:

HA. Nice. She had her moments in Bad Girls, but yeah, she's the least attractive sustained star of our generation.
