Two Interesting Sci-fi Movies

Primer

An indie time travel movie made with a $7,000 budget. It has a Blair Witch feel but with far less nauseating camera movement. The story is really cool and extremely complex. Definitely a solid movie. I loved the understated delivery and steady pace (though these might cause some people to lose interest). I like to think that hipsters would love this movie if only they allowed themselves to enjoy sci-fi.

In Time

Much higher budget and more mainstream than Primer. Fun science fiction idea, high production value, entertaining story, decent acting. Not a masterpiece with a single theme delivered powerfully, but I thought it was different and worth watching. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol, who also wrote and directed Gattaca and Lord of War and wrote (but didn’t direct) The Truman Show and The Terminal.
