I spend some time trolling for movies. I go through the listings of various channels that play only movies, and I read descriptions. I find a lot of terrible movies that way. I also find interesting movies that I might not have otherwise happened upon.

A little bit ago (one month? two?) I happened upon TiMER. Click on the link for the rundown on what it's about and who's in it. I wanted to talk about what it made me think about.

Sometimes I have a fundamental disagreement with the idea of a movie. I did with this one. Yet, I found that I wasn't ticked off enough to turn the thing off. In fact, the movie was just my speed, and it charmed me. I found myself thinking about it for days after watching it.

What if you knew when you'd meet your "one true love"? What would that do to your life? Would that even be possible?

These were the questions that kept bugging me. I have my own thought on this. It seemed like the movie took one point of view, but by the end of the movie, I thought that perhaps it hadn't. It gave me a lot to think about, and sometimes that's a very good thing.

Any interesting movies that I should go and see?


  1. I've never heard of this movie, but I guess I'll have to check it out. I don't have any suggestions, I'm not really the movie watching kind of person.

  2. Sounds like it was a good movie, especially if you found yourself thinking about it for days afterwards.

  3. You should checkout Roger Ebert's 100 movies that you should see list. It's a great starter for people that are looking to branch out.

  4. I never heard of that movie. Sometimes when a movie fills me with questions, I find an idea for a book.

    Since I hardly see movies, I'm not the one to ask. Tangled was actually pretty good. I rented it for my daughter. Now we're waiting for Stranger than Fiction from the Netflix queue. I've seen it before, but I loved it so much I want see it again
