FILM: Rubber -- 2010

Ugh...I watched this movie about 2 weeks ago and wanted to delete it from my brain, but instead, I'm going type out all my anger here. So, excuse me if it gets a bit much. Quentin Dupieux is the one who directed and wrote this. I'm apologize, Mr. Dupieux, in advance! As an inspiring filmmaker, I always feel AWFUL when I see horrid movies because that's someone's work! Hard work! I feel bad for everyone who took part of that movie and it makes me sad...

This movie is about a tire, yes, a tire and his name is Robert. Robert was abandoned in the desert and suddenly, for NO REASON AT ALL, he comes alive. Robert is rolling around the desert--and oh yeah, he has telepathic powers. Robert has the ability to destroy anything he wishes without rolling/moving anywhere. He attacks little things at first, like animals and what not. Then he starts to attack humans, and it's..."chaos." I heard people tried to compare this movie to Christine (1983) HA! I'm still trying to see how... BESIDES from the whole inanimate object thing. Besides that, I got nothing...because the film Christine was a classic automatically for me and it had a cool story line, whereas this film's story line...was just slapped together, so it seems.

I don't care what anyone says, this film sucked. I didn't find it funny, nor will I ever find it funny. I'm cool with comedy horrors but I thought this was just stupid. The whole time this film was going on I was aggravated--yeah, I was aggravated with the film and its ridiculousness--but I was more aggravated with MYSELF because I sat there and watched the whole thing. My poor eyes and ears. :( For those of you who have seen it and are saying "Oh, it wasn't that bad!", you're a liar. I'm joking...but seriously, after seeing that movie ONCE, did you ever watch it again?? I would hope not. Unless you genuinely enjoyed it then...hey ok, live your life and enjoy it. 

I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone honestly, but I know there are people out there who loved this movie. So to those who enjoyed it, I'd truly love to know why. I'm thinking maybe I just didn't get it or I'm not seeing it correctly. Help?


  1. I saw the previews for this one so I knew it was about a tire on a murder rampage, but I would have never expected a zombie-like scene. I've been tempted to watch it, but now I'll skip it.

  2. Wow, I had hopes for this movie when I first saw the trailer. It looked like "What?! This is gonna be so hilarious!" I guess not though.

    Maybe I will watch it sometime but it is going to the very back of my list :P.

  3. @MsMariah I thought it would be cool but I just didn't get it...I don't know. You might like it though. The deaths were pretty good.

    @Marcus you might think it's funny! I anything you can check it out for laughs. Lol. I'm sorry it's on the back of your list now. :p

  4. Rubber spelled backwards is 'this movie sucked'--agree on this one. Couldn't even get past the first 45 minutes.

  5. my sister watched this ridiculous film last week and reported it was the biggest waste of time ever! x

  6. @Keith I agree! You aren't missing a thing. 10 minutes was too much time.

    @Shel Lol, it definitely was!
