    watched it not too long ago on Netflix. decent flick. got a little dull about half way through but the ending was solid. sadly this is another movie that is forced to go through the hollywood remake machine soon

    Loved it. Time travel movies can be pretty interesting.

    Ever seen Primer?

    Not yet para...I have it on hold at the library though and will watch it within the next few weeks. I heard about it in a Roger Ebert review of Timecrimes. Is Primer as good as Timecrimes?

    Primer is more difficult to grasp. It isn't as fun as Timecrimes, and it takes a few viewings (at least for me) to wrap my head around the concepts. But I found it very rewarding. Primer is sort of a "high-brow" time travel movie. It approaches time travel in a very unique way.
    Simply put, and without giving any major plot points away, imagine if you got inside a machine at noon and took a nap in it for six hours and then, when you emerged, it was 6am of the same day. The machine will only take you back in time, and you can only go back as far as the machine has existed. These are the basic rules of time travel in Primer.
