You go squish now!

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at September 8, 2005 9:44 PM Critical consensus is that the new A Sound of Thunder movie really, really sucks. That's disappointing, because I remember liking the original Ray Bradbury story. On the other hand, I read that story when I was about ten years old.

This means that the best adaptation of the story remains the segment "Time and Punishment" from the "Treehouse of Horror V" episode of The Simpsons.

HOMER: OK, don't panic -- remember the advice your father gave you on your wedding day.
[remembers Abe with hair and a tuxedo]
ABE: If you ever travel back in time, don't step on anything because even the tiniest change can alter the future in ways you can't imagine.

Ha! Best Adaptation Ever. Of course, the segment that stands out in my memory would be:

HOMER: "No Donuts!!!??" [Flees that timeline]
MARGE: "Oh no, it's raining again." [rain = donuts]

(That equation should be put into effect immediately. Vegan donuts assumed.)
