10 years of Flick Filosopher: the plane! the plane!

Ah, geeky GenX bliss. From my review of Donnie Darko:

We were teenagers in the 1980s, and we gobbled up the stories of our cinematic counterparts, like Ferris Bueller and Marty McFly. But their happy popcorn angst isn’t how it was for us — we should have had it so easy. No, we endured the high divorce rates of our parents and stock market crashes and the constant threat of nuclear war (and no one coddled us with therapists and grief counselors like today’s kids get to help them deal with the specter of terrorism). And we didn’t complain.

You didn’t think we’d keep quiet forever, did you?
