    TiMER is a quirky romcom which actually subverts the genre's tropes and asks far more questions than you'd expect. The premise is set up as science fiction, but really has no basis in science, so is really fantasy: Since the 90s, a wrist-implanted device called a "timer" has become ubiquitous because it counts down to the moment you'll meet your soul mate. Emma Caulfield (from Buffy) plays Oona, a woman obsessed with finding that soul mate, but stuck with a blank timer (i.e her "one" doesn't have a timer yet), but various other problems are explored through other characters. What would you do if you knew you'd only find true love in 14 years? what if you met them when you were a teenager? And what would you do if you fell in love with someone else in the meantime? The film doesn't end the way you think it will, but is more truthful that way. And you know the "Edgar Wright" humor I found lacking in FAQ About Time Travel? There are actually some very funny moments like that in TiMER. This is writer-director Jac Schaeffer's first feature film, and for now, her only one, but I hope she gets to make another sooner than later. In fact, there's no one in the cast I wouldn't watch in something else. 6 years 5 months ago

    Great concept. Did well with the usual romcom elements (cute meet, mid-movie montages, deception, fallout and whatnots). It was pretty alright. I loved how the movie ended, because if they did otherwise I would have hated it. 7 years 2 months ago

    I loved this. It portrays ( and smites) our modern view on 'the perfect one' and shows you there are many ways to live the love and life you want to. 7 years 4 months ago
