Valentine's Day is fast approaching. Since I'm a) a major film buff and b) currently single, I thought I'd commemorate the holiday by highlighting a series of independently made romantic movies that never got the kind respect that I think they deserve.
First up is Timer from 2009. It stars Emma Caulfield from Buffy The Vampire Slayer and is one of the few films to blend romance and science fiction beautifully.
Imagine, if you will, having a device implanted on your arm that counts down continuously to the day when you will meet your soul mate. One where each of you are alerted the very second you meet each other so there's no guessing involved.
That's the world of Timer.
And the implications of taking that guess work out of meeting that special someone are rather far-reaching. I cannot recommend this movie highly enough. I loved it.
