The ensuing minute of silence was so intense that we could hear our hearts pounding in the glassed area of the tower, could hear the slow greased turn of the light. The script drags all the clichés out and leaves the actors to cover them. The death of the butterfly has resulted in the future being changed - a different man won the presidency of the United States, and people believe he will be a dictator. What could possibly go wrong?

In time travelling, you pass yourself, a version of you that knows more than you do know, and maybe a completely different person than who you are when you see them.

Bradbury's prose is silken and lyrical and the imagery he uses to bring the lofty concept of time travel down to earth is wonderful. The monster stopped and froze.
