Clearly, I've been spending almost a week pondering this question.

No, I think if you like either movie, there's a good chance you'll appreciate Primer. While I have no idea why you don't like Cube, the possibilities I can think of (poor acting, focus on action/suspense, reality show-like concept, reliance on character stereotypes and story structure) don't really apply to Primer. They're both high-concept, low-budget science fiction movies that work out an idea to its logical conclusion and smallest detail, and they both leave a number of questions unanswered at the end. That's why I saw some similarity between them.
Please excuse me. I've got to see a man about a dog.
