I thought his movie was absolutely stupid when I first saw it. So I totally hated it for months.
Then it hit me how genius it is. Not for the time travel shit, that’s still really fucking stupid. It’s the fact that it is so fucking stupid that the movie is genius.
It’s like the coolest 80’s retread ever. It gets the cheesy John Hughes stereotypes and the bizarre ass story lines teen movies had back then (Weird Science anyone?), it gets them so, so deftly.
Kelly is like the 80’s Tarantino or something. Y’know? Like he gets the feel of an era really well with all sorts of cool references.
I’m telling you, this movie is so money after a week of watching 80’s flicks. It’s like Vh1 in a box or something like that. It’s Donnie Darko man.
