Ok, I really need to pull my head out of the sand once in a while. I was telling a friend about this great time travel story I had read back in my teens, but couldn't remember who wrote it. I decided to google it and found out the story I had read as a teen was a short story by Ray Bradbury. "The story is a fictional exploration of the Butterfly Effect (or "sensitive dependence upon initial conditions," in the words of Edward Lorenz) through the literary device of time travel. Interestingly, the story pre-dates the work of Edward Lorenz by nearly 10 years, long before the term was coined and the principles understood by the scientific community. The same effect occurs in planetary dynamics and was studied by Henri Poincaré in the 1900's, but not under its modern name. These subjects are grouped into the mathematical field of chaos theory." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Sound_of_Thunder Then I realized it was released as a movie last year and I found this review. The movie sounds like it has virtually NOTHING to do with Bradbury's story other than it involves time travel. :grumpy: WARNING - do not read this review if you have anything in your mouth. "What exactly is the sound of thunder? If this movie is any indication then it's the sound of moviegoers thundering towards the exit, demanding their money back. Yes, the movie is that bad. "Hey Johnny, how bad is it?" This movie is so bad that Ray Bradbury wishes he could invent a time machine so that he could go back in time and NOT write the short story, thus preventing this movie from ever being made. "Whoa, that bad?" Worse. In fact, this movie is so bad that Ray Bradbury might kill himself just so he can roll over in his grave. I know you think I'm trying to be cute, but I'm being serious. This was one of the strangest movie experiences I've had in quite a while. The problem is that I went into the movie expecting to enjoy it. I thought it had the chance to be pretty good. So at the very start I was trying to make excuses for what was unraveling on screen." http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0318081/ Has anyone else read the original story?
