Everything else we loved from the ’90s is back, and now we can go ahead and add the hit MTV show Daria to the list. Lawndale High’s favorite misanthrope, now played by Aubrey Plaza, returns to the screen in Daria: High School Reunion, and you can watch the trailer below.
… Okay, you can relax, this isn’t a real movie. (Yet.) But if it were, I’d have to admit that the casting of Plaza as Daria Morgendorffer was absolutely spot-on. What is Parks & Rec‘s April Ludgate, if not the 20something, city government version of Lawndale High’s favorite misanthrope for this decade? Watch the CollegeHumor parody video after the jump.

EDGE OF DARKNESS
Lest you be fooled by the trailer, Edge of Darkness is not an action thriller; it’s a drama thriller, with sporadic moments of action. Those moments also happen to be by far the best thing about it. The rest, meanwhile, doesn’t make much of an impression, leaving us with a collective total of 5-10 great minutes in an otherwise fairly middling 2 hours. Would the film have fared better had it delivered straight-up action all the way through? I doubt it. The action works as well as it does because of the way it punctuates the drama, with superbly orchestrated bursts of violence forcefully grabbing you by the throat during times of quiet dread. The problem with the movie is that its story is stuck in the ’80s, back when the original British TV serial first aired. 25 years later, the conspiracy at the core of Edge of Darkness is as arid and familiar as the political subtext that comes with it. The closer I came to the mystery being unraveled, the less I cared what the truth was. It’s lucky then, that the film has Mel Gibson’s brooding intensity to keep the proceedings engaging. I may not have had any interest in what sort of dastardly deeds Craven’s daughter had uncovered, but I was eager to see what Craven was going to do about it. The payoff did not disappoint.
