Movies that are slightly off.
Are you TIRED of the expected?
In the California desert, the adventures of a telepathic killer-tire, mysteriously attracted by a very pretty girl, as witnessed by incredulous onlookers.
Film # 5/30 of Scavenger Hunt 4!
Task # 19 A Film About Inanimate Objects Killing Humans!
Following one of the most random pre credit openings I've ever seen, a lonely tyre with psychokinetic powers wakes up in the desert one morning and decides to go on a murderous rampage. A little unsteady on his tread to start with, he soon gets the hang of the whole rolling malarkey and sets off on his mission to watch the world burn.
A character states at the very beginning that some of the biggest films in history have no reason for some of the decisions they make, why was E.T. brown? why don't characters use the bathroom in The Texas Chainsaw…
The first 30 minutes or so I really felt that this was going to be my kind of weird. I loved the bizareness of the opening and the subsequent monologue. The first babysteps of the killer tyre were wonderful, but somewhere in the back of my mind a small voice was already starting to whisper things about this being too thin a concept for a full movie. I hate that voice because it's usually right.
An homage to 'No reason'. Starting your film by saying that it will have reason doesn't really give you the right to make it an unnecessarily boring one, devoid of any creativity or…
It is obvious this film will find a devoted following but it left me stone cold. It tries far too hard to be quirky whilst doing nothing interesting with the premise at all. At best this is a mildly entertaining short film but they stretch it far beyond what the concept will allow. Murderous inanimate objects are nothing new in cinema from The Refrigerator to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. None of these films are ever really great but they do provide some B-movie charms and still at least try and tell a story. Rubber on the other hand is a one-joke movie when the joke isn't all that funny to begin with.
Sure, the idea of a car tyre…

"Ladies, gentlemen, the film you are about to see today is an homage to the "no reason" - that most powerful element of style." - Lieutenant Chad
This is probably the oddest re-watch I've ever had. While my friend kept looking across at me, baffled, I just kept telling him that he was never going to get it, and that he should just stop asking questions and enjoy it for what it was. He calmed down, but didn't enjoy it at all. Personally, I loved it.
In fact, I love every inch of this.…
Well-crafted photography and a terrific score are spoiled by lousy writing and hackneyed gore effects that grew tiresome after the 3rd or 4th installation. Early on, I was fixated by the "tire" scenes, while I found the "spectator" side story completely superfluous. Some savvy editing and a rewrite of the 3rd act, and this could have made for a nice little 20-minute short. Instead, we get this pile of wasted competence.
Sort of a nice concept but completely wears thin and pops after about 30 minutes. This thing is not the awesome piece of genre fare that it could've been. Would've worked great as a short. Seriously, the novelty of watching a tire shake for a second and then seeing a head explode starts to really lose its lustre after the 15th take. Boring boring boring.
im gay for the girl and for the tire
A well intentioned send up of SyFy born-to-be-bad movies that nearly steps into what it's lambasting. However, kudos to Dupieux for forcing you to become emotionally involved with a piece of rubber through some intimate shots.
SAW: in the CARL Lab at UCLA
Its' bonkers, completely stupid and should in no way work, but it absolutely does!! Absolutely reeks of cult classic
I knew what I was getting myself into with this movie, but was actually quite the opposite of what I expected it to be. Very fun to watch with a group of friends, but if you sit down and watch this movie by yourself and look for an aspiring plot line and greatness, you won't find one. It was fun to watch... that's about it...
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Rubber is the sort of movie that you makes you tilt your head with a "WTF?" expression on your face. This is fine for a little while, but after watching an entire feature-length film in this position you only wind up with a crick in the neck and a sinus headache.
The main character in Rubber is an automobile tire. Yes. A tire. This tire 'wakes up' in the desert and begins to traverse the landscape. Oh, and it's psychic, too. The tire discovers this when it happens upon a rabbit, and then it begins to shudder and shake until the rabbit explodes into a hundred bloody, furry chunks. Armed with this new talent, the tire makes its way to…
MASTERPIECE... Why? no reason.
this movie made me really uncomfortable.
it's like, a movie with it's premise should be funny, but it's really not funny at all.
somehow though, i somewhat enjoyed myself.
it kind of was one of the scariest movies i've ever seen.
i don't know what else to say, i'm not giving this a rating.
This is the kind of movie that is best watched at to in the morning. At that point where you laugh at anything and everything, this movie is amazing. It's just weird enough to ask yourself what am I watching, but not so weird to completely throw for a loop and be lost in a land of confusion.
