A big collection of films that might be considered as strange, mindfucking, surreal and weird. Sorted by year. Suggestions are…
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.
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…
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.
Film #13 in Driver’s December Death Penalty AKA The December Project , which is part of Cinebro's The December Challenge. 1 month, 100 movies.
"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.…
Rubber couldve been a movie about condoms. Or the environment. Even a mobster biopic about a gangster who calls himself "Rubber." But its not either of those. its about a living car tire that can explode objects using mind powers.
If "the most powerful element of style is no meaning" than Rubber must be the pinnacle of style right? It has no meaning. It's about tire that can explode people's brains in a world where fake isn't distinguishable from real life. And it just so happens to be so stupidly delightful.
I knew I liked the movie at the point where the tire learns he can explode living objects. He explodes a bunny and then goes bouncing and swerving around…
Movie no. 2 on the list of movies Drive wants me to watch.
I liked this movie.
Rubber is this werid, Dada-esque type of film. It's only problem is that you can't run an entire movie off of the charming concept of randomness. "Oooh this movie is crazy! Anything is gonna happen!" You'll say for the first 20 minutes. Then you have to watch the rest of the movie.
That being said, the first 20 minutes is friggin BRILLIANT
Aaaw... Such a cute murderous little tire. Like a Frankenstein's monster. So misunderstood, lonely and sad.
No, but I liked this one, even though it had it's ups and downs. I would've liked it too have even more craziness and nonsense in it, for example. And I didn't think it was as clever as it seemingly wanted to be.
My favourite parts of the movie were those of just the tire. It really had its own personality, and I enjoyd watching it roll around. But I really enjoyd the movie as whole aswell. I even laughed a couple of times, but I think I wouldn't have if it weren't for the fact that I'm really tired.
One of the single best deconstructions of the cinematic form I've ever seen.
Don't ever watch this.
No stars. EVER
This movie's greatness is derived from it so humorously pointing out the absurdities of human life. Instead of going about it in a dry, dull, painful way; or by trying to introduce elements of comedy into next-to-normal circumstances; this movie just goes for off-the-wall ridiculous.
I like HDSLR filmmaking, and I can get behind weird movies. This movie is weird, but unfortunately it's a little too in love with itself for me.
It's a one joke movie, and the joke is never funny to begin with. The performances are bad.
With a better script and a different cast it could have been an interesting short film I think.
Probably in the top 10 movies about killer tires.
Did you think a day would come in your lifetime when you saw a film put the following into a blender: Duel, The Devil's Rejects, Night of the Living Dead, Scream, The Fury, Firestarter, Psycho, SpongeBob SquarePants, Cat People, Scanners, and Unico in the Island of Magic? Don't mistake my astonishment for praise, that mix is too random to work. The film we get out of it is either too stupid to be funny or too insulting to take seriously. Most of the time...
But... all the same, there's something I have to say in its defense... Ahem, I quote:
"He's been reincarnated as a tricycle!"
That is brilliant. That is mind-boggling. It's hilarious. I smiled. I laughed. I almost…
There is absolutely no reason whatsoever for me to like the absurdly offbeat Rubber. And yet I sort of do.
