Hey, have any of you seen this movie "Timeline"? I just saw it, and it was really good. But I read that it only made 20 mill. at the box office, and had a budget of 80mill. No one wants to see movies like this anymore. If it isn't a horror movie, or comedy, it seems to do bad.

Gerard Butler is in it, and he is outstanding. I love his character in the movie; the way he looks at modern life as boring, and thrives on the past. His part was really the best. I really enjoyed it. Maybe it's sales will go up.

Based on the book by Michael Chrichton (sp?), right? I played the game about a year or two ago, & it & the book were dreadful. :(

I haven't read the book, but again, the movie was great. Other than Paul Walker and his dull acting abilities.
