His music (He's Mr Oizo, in case you don't know), his stuff as director. Crazy french guy. :D<br> He directed this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cOkwsdwDSc

I cannot WAIT to see this :)
July 13, 2010, 2:05 a.m. CST
This is what i'm talking about! Fuckin' tripe like predators in our cinemas... guess we gotta leave it to the french eh? lol <P> This and "Monsters" are my 2 most eagerly anticipated movies for the rest of the year. Besides Inception and Tron: Legacy... Only movies left to be released that i give a damn about.
July 13, 2010, 2:16 a.m. CST
The fact that there's 10 minutes of just a tire rolling around is great, reminds me of all those loq budget "killer inanimate object" movies form the 70s. I can see this being one of those movies that has the absolutey awesome VHS box art that has nothing to do with it.
July 13, 2010, 2:16 a.m. CST
LMAO what the fuck was that? Random... i assume that was a joke. At least i hope it was... 'cause that shit was WACK. God, i forgot how terrible Smallville really is lol I think i watched part of 1 or 2 episodes once upon a time... just because of that hot piece of ass that was in it... Kristin Kreuk! Damn, what a hottie :) has she done anything recently?
July 13, 2010, 2:21 a.m. CST
This might be the best music video of all time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv6Ewqx3PMs <P> Man, why have i never heard of this Mr. Oizo before?!

Oh well, it can't be worse than Transformers 2...... and a breath of originality in such tiresome cinematic times.
July 13, 2010, 3:09 a.m. CST
was the pun intentional? If not, even more hilarious
July 13, 2010, 3:17 a.m. CST
needs to check out "Rubber: Extract #2": <P> http://vimeo.com/11868985 <P> The absurdity of the plot is the fuckin' point. And you gotta respect the cinematography, effects, and the awesome music in that clip i just linked to... Amazing what the director has done, as in one 90 second clip, he's able to convey personality/life to the tire. I already care about the damn tire for godsake! It's like a live-action, dark, Pixar movie or something... and how great is that? More personality/creativity/originality in this TIRE, than in the entirety of the cinematic abortion known as PREDATORS. Craziness!
July 13, 2010, 3:23 a.m. CST
Why do i love movies set in the southwest so damn much? Love the desert setting... Probably why i love films like Tremors, and THEM! so much :)
July 13, 2010, 3:25 a.m. CST
Can't get "Robert's Theme" outta my head lol So innocent and naive, yet filled with such sorrow... Perfect tone for him wandering up to the fence to watch his brothers and sisters getting burned to death. Poor Robert... <P> :(
July 13, 2010, 3:27 a.m. CST
Another film set in the desert that i love. What an underrated flick... I thought Michael Shannon should have received an oscar nom for that one. Fuckin' oscars... lol

BUG.... William Friedkin back on form after 33 years. Criminally underrated movie.....took ages to distribute and got a miniscule release when it did. Same will happen with this I'm afraid....
July 13, 2010, 3:36 a.m. CST
Michael Shannon <P> Michael C. Hall <P> Mark Pellegrino <P> Sid Haig <P> Mickey Rourke <P> Ian McShane <P> Someone write this movie. STAT!
July 13, 2010, 3:41 a.m. CST
Damn skippy! That was one of my favorite films of 2006. Nice to hear from a fellow BUG fan ;-) And i'm sure you're right about "Rubber" unfortunately... Such a shame. Hope i get to see it in a theatre here in Denver
July 13, 2010, 3:43 a.m. CST
Haha, your the first person to comment on that! Yeah, that shit just came on a minute ago here on comedy central. I just have to stop whatever i'm doing, and just... STARE IN AWE. <P> What a cranium lol
July 13, 2010, 3:46 a.m. CST
it looks like DSLR, and if so, it might be the biggest movie to date to be shot that way. I'd love it if you could find out.
July 13, 2010, 5:04 a.m. CST
Erm, Hobo With A Shotgun...
July 13, 2010, 5:06 a.m. CST
thought I read that somewhere. IMDB says it's a Red shoot.
July 13, 2010, 5:07 a.m. CST
Whenever someone does something completely left field its customory for everyone to go doo-lally praising its originality. This sounds like a concept for a short that was stretched out to make a movie. Next we'll have a piece of dog turd that can fly through the air, or a dildo that butt fucks people to death. Its not clever. This sounds like a video nasty with little thought, elevated to cult status just because its peculiar.
July 13, 2010, 5:09 a.m. CST
You don't have to watch it.
July 13, 2010, 5:56 a.m. CST
...either some kind of Michael Moore documentary (wasn't there a Firstone tire back in the 80's that has defects and would randomly explode at high speeds?) or a movie like that one about the windshield wiper guy (with Greg Kinnear as a whistleblower at Firestone trying to get the defective tire off the market). A conscious, killer tire? That's insanity, man!
July 13, 2010, 6:03 a.m. CST
...I always expect Thelma and Louise to drive by... or, lately Mudoc, Android Noodle and 2D in a '69 Camaro followed by Bruce Willis in a '68 El Camino.
July 13, 2010, 6:10 a.m. CST
It's like the Family Guy skit with Stephen King, " It's about a... Lamp Monster!" <P> Although I'd rather see this than that shit stuck on a ski lift high concept nonsense.
July 13, 2010, 6:54 a.m. CST
It goes deeper than that. And I will be the first one to tell you that, as i am the first person to usually call out something "hipster" or "weird, for the sake of being weird". I fucking HATE "Little Miss Sunshine", was completely turned off by the trailer to Juno, hell i think Donnie Darko is extremely overrated... (The emperor has no clothes and whatnot...) <P> Rubber is in no way, shape or form, relatable to those previously mentioned hack-jobs. This director, if you've seen any of his past material is somewhat of an artistic "genius". He is just using a bizarre, out of left field idea to showcase his talents as an artist. So it is actually YOU sir, who had the knee-jerk reaction to this project. I really hope you remove your own personal bias from the equation and go check this movie out, on its own merits :)
July 13, 2010, 6:56 a.m. CST
at least it would be more fun and less dull than a telepathic tire.
July 13, 2010, 6:56 a.m. CST
if my previous link to "Extract # 2" (with Robert discovering the terrible truth about his "kind"), didn't completely "wow" you, or stir your creative/artistic juices... then i truly feel sorry for you.
July 13, 2010, 6:58 a.m. CST
How'd you like Predators? Top 10 of the year for you? <P> lol
July 13, 2010, 7:19 a.m. CST
already booked this in for the melbourne internation film fest over here in well you can guess the rest. Looking forward to this.
July 13, 2010, 7:30 a.m. CST
There's no way this can support more than a 5 minute short. Anything else is jacking off.

Just imagine a world with nothing but blockbusters. The horror. Also good to hear that Rubber can sustain its feature length running time. That's a sign of good filmmaking (like that time David Lynch had me mesmerised with Inland Empire for 3 hours straight, even though I still have no idea what the hell was going on). <p> Speaking of Lynch, what's he up to these days? Still selling coffee?
July 13, 2010, 9:11 a.m. CST
I will be quite put-out if you don't arrange a viewing for us here in Austin!!!! ☺

I remember listening to one or two of his albums back in the day. Very interesting stuff. <p><p>This movie looks very interesting & fun. It's nice to see people taking chances and doing something different and observational. So yeah, I'll watch a movie about a sentient murderous tire, if it's done like this. Strangely, this looks more appealing than Christine or Maximum Overdrive for some reason (that reason largely being the humor and satirical angle, I suppose). <p><p>-Cheers
July 13, 2010, 9:28 a.m. CST
But I'm dreading the Hollywood remake by Platinum Dunes already.
July 13, 2010, 9:30 a.m. CST
Pretty sure "Hobo" was shot on RED.
July 13, 2010, 9:58 a.m. CST
since we were too young to drive and most of the neighborhood kids had a rimless tire lying around their garages, we'd play "The Tire", about a tire possessed by SATAN. We'd roll tires at each other and scream. We liked to imagine the tire had retractable spikes and stuff. Glad this movie got made from MY childhood idea, can I have money now? Harhar.
July 13, 2010, 10:02 a.m. CST
It's Scanners meets The Car, except 98 percent of the The Car is missing, leaving only a TIRE.

There are 5 steps to making a tire. They left out one to save money, and that is what made the tires explode. I work for Goodyear, and we make good tires. Just wondering what brand of killer tire is used in the movie, blame it on professional curiosity...
July 13, 2010, 11:51 a.m. CST
Your RUBBERS!! Hahahaha. We don't want any of you folks procreating.......

Although a movie where the Micheline Man went around killing people would actually be scarier. That's one corporate icon that used to scare me as a kid and still gives me the creeps today. I remember reading William Gibson's Pattern Recognition were the protaganist, Cayce Pollard, had a psychological aversion to all logos, but the Micheline Man logo would send her into shock. I just thought, "Understandable."
July 13, 2010, 12:28 p.m. CST
...that features some chick with a giant head. Just so I'll know what the fuck is going on here.

The idea sounds cool, but the teaser makes me question the filmmaker's judgment. And the "chorus with binoculars" looks massively annoying.
July 13, 2010, 2:41 p.m. CST
Looks like a good ol' throwback to those wacky 80s movies where random shit just happened, such as a homeless dude eating white goo from the middle of a meteor in THE STUFF. Which is weird enough - but then the stuff gets mass-produced into a youghurt-type thing that EATS YOU!!<P> The 80s fucking RULED. And RUBBER fits right in with my idea of a cracking nostalgic night in. Double-bill this with SLITHER, and I'm one happy bastard...
July 13, 2010, 2:42 p.m. CST
Hollywood, take note. THIS is an original idea. Holy shit, THIS is original.
