The Butterfly Effect

The trailers for _The Butterfly Effect_ consistently give me the creeps. It's one movie I plan on seeing in theaters come hell or high water. I initially blew it off due to the Ashton Kutcher content, but after seeing trailers for repeatedly, it seems he actually is a capable actor and not just some doofus underwear model. They also turned me back on to "It's Been Awhile," which I hadn't listened to in a long time. As I sit here listening to it this morning, I'm left with the impression that song wasn't just a lucky choice for the trailer. I get the distinct impression the screenplay was spawned by excessive listening to Staind. The lyrics sum up nearly the entire known plot of the movie pretty neatly. Whatever the case, I'm going to see it. The corporate machine can have my $7 matinee ticket and I can have my hour and change of cinema. At least, assuming hormonal hordes of pubescent girls don't show up knowing Ashton is partially disrobed at some point in the film. Should that occur, the filmgoing experience will be reduced to a lot of twittering and my drowning my sorrows in overpriced popcorn and bottled water, because dammit, I'm not walking out of a movie I paid $7 for.

I, too, want to see this one. I'm thinking of treating myself to a matinee showing since I'm sure none of my friends want to see it. I hope it's as good as it looks, and I hope Kutcher does the role justice.

Happy Friday! :)
