I was browsing Netflix a few years ago looking for a good movie to watch, and I stumbled upon a hidden gem. As you know, I love a good sci-fi movie, but I don’t know of many that are also romantic comedies. TiMER somehow finds the perfect balance of funny, clever, and dramatic, plus an endearing love story. It is one of my favorites and definitely worth seeing.
Without giving too much away (since I really want you to watch for yourself), TiMER is set in a reality where you have the choice to implant a clock into your arm that counts down to the moment you meet your soul mate. As you can imagine, this adds another layer of complication to relationships with people who are not your “soul mate”, at least according to the device in your arm.
On a recent weekend, I rewatched TiMER, and just like I had the first time, I found myself giggling with excitement, cringing at awkwardness, and shaking with nerves. Even though I knew what was going to happen, watching it again was just as thrilling. I promise, seeing this movie is worth your TiME.
