94. The Butterfly Effect (with Cinematic Joshua‪)‬ Load Bearing Beams

    • TV & Film

Friend of the Show Cinematic Joshua (@CinematicJoshua on TikTok) joins us for a rollicking conversation about the cult classic Ashton Kutcher time travel picture The Butterfly Effect (2004). 
Laci, Matt, and Joshua discuss the career of Ashton Kutcher, the influence of the Final Destination series on this movie, and the many different time strands this movie juggles, as well as the merits of the conventional Hollywood ending of the theatrical cut and the extremely dark original ending included in the director’s cut. 
Content warning: We discuss the movie's depictions of sexual assault and self-harm.
