The Butterfly Effect, a review @ 10:47 pm

Current Mood: contemplative contemplative

I thought I would break the entry up and post about The Butterfly Effect, which I saw last night. I completely forgot about seeing it until nowm and rather than inserting my thoughts yet again into the most disorganized entry known to man, I would post it aloe.

The Butterfly Effect is a movie about a guy who, during times of stress, has blackouts. He can't remember what happens during these blackouts but its usually something really bad. When he's in college, he figures out how, by looking at a journal he's written, how he can go back to the blackouts, and change what happened in them. The premise is, what if you could change just one thing: a conversation, an event, anything. And what would happen? Well, not to give anything away, but it life's "happily ever after" stories that he tries to maufacture by changing events don't really happen. You'll have to watch the movie, though some might not like science fictiony things, its "real life" enought to make you stop and think for a while. I'm not sure I'd change the fact that I broke a leg here or there, who knows what I'd screw up in the process. What about you guys? What would you do if you could go back and change just one thing to make things better here or there.

Wow. There are many things I wouldn't have done but probably dating John was the biggest mistake of my life. The memories are so damn bad if I write a memoir of my life I won't even include him in it. What about you?

I don't think there's really anything that I totally should not have done that I'd like to change. I suppose I would have been a lot nicer back in like ninth grade. That year was hell for me and I lost a lot of friends, including a girl who I liked, and she liked me. It sounds trivial, but sometimes I wonder. Also, I'd probably have been a lot more careful a lot earlier, but then again, I might have not started this journal (given not breaking things) I'd not met you guys, or some of my other friends. So as you can tell, changing some things really can change a lot of little things.

Sounds to me like someone is already trying to go back and change the fact that he paid around $10 or so to go see a film with Ashton Kutcher in it. ;) I feel if I saw the film, I would attempt to do the same.
