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.

Rubber (2011) - Popzara Review

A film that could have worked on its gloriously absurd premise alone, but reaches too far in its efforts to make a commentary on filmmaking. Full review by Chris Pandolfi.

Blu-Review - Rubber (ATemporaryDistraction.com)

ATemporaryDistraction.com: "As the film begins with a car slowly driving down a desert path, knocking over a collection of ornate chairs carefully arranged along the road as it goes, before pulling to a stop as one of the characters nonchalantly climbs out of the trunk to address the audience with a list of beloved, respected movies containing plot elements that exist for no reason, it becomes clear that Rubber isn’t your ordinary movie. And that’s before you remind yourself that it’s a movie about a killer tyre."

H&T Podcast Episode 26: Rubber & Paul

David Weaver from Home And Theater writes: This is it, our final episode of the Home & Theater podcast has arrived. Starting next week we are transferring over to our new home at The LRA Show, which is the official podcast for LightsRemoteAction.com. But I think we are going out on a high note with the two films we have for you this week. Once again we are joined by Brian Salazar from The SEC and we start with a look at the new Simon Pegg/Nick Frost comedy "Paul" where we liked it overall but don't think it lived up to the pedigree of their past films. Then we move into a discussion for Quentin Dupieux's "Rubber", a film about a killer tire that goes on a murderous rampage through a small desert town. I think this is probably the most divisive film we have ever talked about with feelings ranging from best film of the year to complete slack jawed boredom and disbelief. One thing is for sure though, none of us have ever seen anything quite like it. Featured music this week is from the "Rubber" motion picture soundtrack.
