#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Engineers Aaron, Abe, Robert and Phillip are working on an invention, the prototype being built in Aaron’s garage. This project is beyond their day jobs. The project truly does belong to Aaron and Abe, as they use all their free time working on it, primarily trying to overcome the many engineering related problems they’ve encountered. It is during one of his tests with the invention running that Abe discovers that a protein inside the main unit has multiplied much more rapidly than it could in nature. Rather than the invention being a protein super incubator, Abe, using himself as a guinea pig, and a very meticulous one at that, discovers that the invention can be used as a time machine. In his self experiment, Abe was especially careful not to interfere with his own self in that time warp. Abe passes along this discovery to Aaron, who he expects will tell his wife Kara in what is the sanctity of their marriage, but he doesn’t want to tell either Robert or Phillip. Much to Abe’s surprise, Aaron does not want to tell Kara, it being a sole intellectual property of just the two of them, in the process moving the base of operation to a locked storage unit. Aaron’s plan for the two of them is to use the invention to win big in the stock market by knowing through the time travel what has happened in the market. With two thoughts on the matter now instead of just one, Aaron and Abe may hit some logistical and philosophical roadblocks in how to move forward.
Plot: Friends and fledgling entrepreneurs invent a device in their garage which reduces the apparent mass of any object placed inside it, but they discover that it has some highly unexpected capabilities – ones that could enable them to do and to have seemingly anything they want. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity is the first challenge they face. Dealing with the consequences is the next.

You remember the first time you saw The Matrix (please, not the awful sequels) and you could barely keep up with what was going on, trying to piece together the pieces of what you were being told into a coherent story?
This movie was exactly like that. The first half or so is fairly linear (despite the frenzied Altman-esque style of everyone talking on top of each other), but then it gets WEIRD and it just absolutely blew me away. This film won a major Sundance award, and normally that means I won’t like it (especially the normally pandering audience award winners) but this movie, and first-time filmmaker Shane Carruth, deserves absolutely everything it gets. I am just blown away.
Did you like Pi? If so, go see this one.
By the way, the attention to detail in the beginning is great. Often in thrillers with technical content, if you have a technical education you have consciously ignore all the stupid movie crud that they pull to make it into a good story. But this movie pulls off an incredibly believable technical story, with only a few distracting gaffs. That is, the tech jargon is good enough that you don’t get distracted and can focus on the story line.
Final comment: Yes, it is very hard to follow the story line in this movie.
Obviously I’m not going to spoil it, but I think the following fact will help when the movie gets kind of hairy towards the end: Aaron is the dark-haired guy, Abe is the blond-haired guy.
This movie now has distribution and you should keep an eye out for it in the fall.
Pretentious forced confusion claimed avant garde genius
I’m writing this review to relieve myself of ever having to consider this movie again. Via an act of pure betrayal, the young comic book shop clerk with nose ring recommended this movie after I enjoyed her previous recommendation- Ex Machina.
All the technical aspects of this movie are terrible- but that’s not the great sin. The great sin of this movie is that an intelligent, interested viewer (me, or you) will search this movie for clues that the viewer is supposed to know what is going on. I found myself listening closely to the crappy, confusing dialogue closely- recorded in such ridiculous places as a loud water fountain at night- for hints about what is going on. Worse, they are supposed to be looking for a cat- in the middle of a loud, water fountain at night? Not even the unknown cat behavior makes sense.
The first 30 minutes or so of the movie could be edited to 5 minutes- first part proving they are amateurs, the second part with professors saying, “this is what it is, but I don’t believe it.” Nor do we need a scientifically accurate explanation for how the time machine works- but a clear explanation is necessary. For instance, flux capacitor- check. Dilithium crystals- check. Here- what? Second, why would two seemingly “smart” dorks waste limitless money, and the ever-concerning time paradoxes, to punch someone in the face? One character is like, “that’s stupid.” In the next scene, he’s saying, “let’s do it.” Third, people pass out for unknown reasons. What? Why? Just tired? I’ve pulled classic all nighters in grad school, but never just passed out. Hows does that advance the story? Meanwhile, the techno-dopes make it seem like it’s part of the mysterious fun.
Fourth, if you need to be in the box for the entire time you are going back in time, then you’d be spending a long ass time (3-4 days) lying down in a box. And sometimes it seems only 1 person can be a in box, but one guy uses the others box. Is that why they pass out? Can you [email protected]$king tell us so we don’t waste intellect on this conundrum? Then you can’t turn off the time machine boxes when they’re on(?) Or you can. Or you can recycle them- or use them only once(?) What? Maybe turn one off, and see what happens for fun. Instead, the movie features a pretentious narration that makes no sense- the telephone call can’t go back in time, so who the hell is he calling? The double in the attic? He can’t get to the phone, he’s in the attic, dummy! Or, it’s already after he’s the big hero- in that case, attic double is being caught up to speed, and the narration is from the guy going full Bond villain building a massive time machine in French-land? What? And if you leave a message for yourself, would it be pretentious and confusing? No… “Hey Juris- guess what? You are a rich hero. Enjoy buddy! And if you see your former best friend, he wants to bang your wife- so be careful! I’m going insane as a bond villain in french speaking land, so enjoy until then. And the cat is not at the water fountain- I already looked. Peace!” And the guy in the attic- just drugged and waking up- how the F is he mistaken for a squirrel? He’s not tied up, or even gagged- that’s just stupid.
And Granger- he chases them, and passes out. And the other guy falls down to- but we don’t see it. Okay- what happened, why should we care, and why did you waste your very limited resources on this? Who cares about Granger anyway- these guys should be yacht hunting, yes? Forget it. There are blogs (some make sense, some don’t), diagrams (again, some make sense, some don’t) but the truth is that it is too poorly written, edited, and audio-recorded to know what’s going on.
And intelligent minds wrestle with this conundrum looking for a satisfactory conclusion- but there is none. That is the tragedy. The masses with a 100 I.Q. (and less) may see genius in an admittedly clever idea (that you have to turn a box on, and can return to that point at a later time, creating unique possibilities for parallel timelines and doubles interacting). But it is no more than clever- and it’s screwed up magnificently.
At the end, one dork is accused of coveting the others wife and kid, and other threatens him not to come back. Why? And if there is a failsafe time machine, why tell the other d-bag about it? And if he sleuthed it out, when? And if he did sleuth it, the other d-bag would already be inside it, traveling back in time, right? So isn’t it too late? Did he put a lock on the door? Maybe sign up using another name? See? It’s too convoluted (and stupid) to accurately [email protected]&k. If my review is confusing, I saved you valuable time. And do not look for help in the director’s commentary- he is too busy masturbating to his own genius(?), and being smarmy, to give any clue as to what he was trying to convey. He apologizes for his mistakes and technical failures like an abstract artist apologizes for a cat painting not looking like a cat- completely patronizing and full of himself. But the emperor has no clothes, and Primer is an incomplete, high school movie class B- at best.
There is a conspiracy, containing the cute comic book shop clerk, that continues to give this movie life, and drive intelligent movie watchers insane. I am relieved of madness, and do not wish the same fate on you.
