Probably The Best Movie I've Seen in a Long Time: Primer

Eric Case and I went and saw the movie "Primer" on Wednesday night. This is a movie which has at its center one of my least favorite subjects, time travel. You have to understand, too many years of bad science fiction has made me actively dislike time travel stories (and don't get me started about the holodeck madness). I mostly blame Voyager, but regardless, Primer is a terrific movie. It's not perfect of course, some of the plot was a bit more disjoint than its non-linear nature might require, but it is remarkable. You should make time to go see it. It's very much worth it.

In fact, I think it is fair to say that there is more talent and story in one frame of Primer than there was in an entire season of Voyager.
