rainy day viewing

Every few weeks I skip through the HD movie channel guides and set timers for movies I have (or had) a mild interest in seeing. I stockpile them for rainy days like today, when I'm home alone with the kids playing in the warm living room.

Right now I'm watching A Sound of Thunder. Wow. Just WOW.

It's like someone took the budgets from two SciFi Channel original movies and conned someone into release it in the theatres. In reality, someone actually spent $80 million to make it.

In return, it made:
Domestic: $1,900,451
Foreign: $9,765,014
Total Theatrical Gross: $11,665,465

Yeah, it was so bad that the video game based off of it NEVER CAME OUT!

I saw it and thought it was pretty terrible, and I LOVED the Ray Bradbury story it's based on. But that Edward Burns sure is easy on the eyes.
