Nerdytits Reviews: Rubber

Nerdytits writes:
I’m not quite sure how you go about reviewing a film like Rubber, but by god I’m going to try. Even attempting to give you a brief plot overview is something of a challenge but here it goes. A tire by the name of Robert (yes, you read that right) gains sentience somewhere in the desert. After killing a bird and getting run over by some shmuck in a pickup truck, Robert the tire , as tires are apt to do, goes on a killing rampage. I don’t want to give away too much but I will say that heads explode, kids are mistreated, and people are poisoned in mass amounts.

Everywhere I look I keep seeing good reviews about this. With such a stupid premise, I wonder how it could possibly be anything but a major waste of my time. I guess I'm just going to have to risk watching it to find out.

Of course, Idiocracy got a bunch of "it's so stupid that it's brilliant" type of praise and quite frankly I just thought that movie was plain stupid.

I know right? When I first heard of it, I thought it was the most ridiculous thing ever, and posted the trailer on my site as a joke. Now it's getting all this positive attention...I think I'll have to see it.

The closest thing I could compare it to is a David Lynch film, more Eraserhead than Dune. Believe me, Idocracy it is not.

Hmm that might not be a good thing in my case. I never got the appeal of Lynch. A couple were ok, but never really got into Lynch like many seem to.
