Donnie Darko, The Last Dragon, Fight Club

Skylar Eppler
Assistant, La Jolla Landmark Midnight Madness

Donnie Darko: Director's Cut will be a cult classic for years to come. Worthy of midnight moviegoers, young and old. A young boy learns a few things about time travel and stirs things up along the way.I have always wanted to see The Last Dragon on the big screen. It's got the right stuff to make it perfect for a midnight showing. Leroy Green (aka Bruce Leroy), a martial arts student in New York, must take on the Shogun of Harlem to save the woman he loves. The true "masta" will be decided.

Fight Club is a personal favorite since the moment I saw the trailer. A man throws everything away to find out who he really is. Edward Norton and Brad Pitt make this movie one of the best of my generation. But the first rule about fight club is you don't talk about fight club.

Red Dawn would make a perfect midnight movie because of its all-star '80s cast: Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen (as brothers!), Jennifer Grey, Lea Thompson, Powers Boothe, and C. Thomas Howell. It has the cheesiness of that great era along with high school students fighting off an army in their quiet mountain town (South Park parodied it in an episode). Besides, how many other films include a scene where they urinate into the radiator because they don't have water? Don't answer that; it's a rhetorical question.Second, I'd recommend The Wizard, about a traumatized boy who's a "wizard" at video games. You can't go wrong with Fred Savage and Christian Slater as older brothers. Rilo Kiley's frontwoman, Jenny Lewis, is Savage's love interest. She helps him and his little brother travel to California to compete in the video-game championships. Tobey Maguire -- complete with a fashionable mullet -- makes a hilarious cameo.

When next you're stranded in space with only a DVD player and TV, I recommend you sit back and enjoy the following titles. Start off with the Best of the Muppet Show. This 2003 release contains one of the best children's shows of all time that entertains all ages. The extras include Muppet reenactments of popular film trailers and archives of Muppet design concepts. Next, try Fight Club. Chuck Palahniuk's story, combined with Edward Norton and Brad Pitt's acting and David Fincher's directing, make for an endlessly watchable hit. The public service announcements should be played in all movie theaters. The commentary track is really entertaining.

Round out your lonely trek through space with The Pirate Movie. Kristy McNichol and Christopher Atkins in an '80s camp version of Pirates of Penzance. You really can't get any better: pirates, girls, plot twists, and -- oh, yeah -- the singing is fabulous.
