I want to see Rubber so bad it hurts.

A movie about a self-aware tire that kills people with telekinesis.

If that wasn't an idea whose time has come, I don't know what is.

And the fact that somehow they took an inanimate object with no human qualities and gave it a personality... that is an impressive feat. I mean, it is easy to make a doll or a car seem to possess character qualities because you can see a face in their features. A tire... that is an entirely new challenge.

So I have to see how this whole thing turned out. It is likely going to be disappointing, but I just have to know.

I know exactly what you mean. Every year there is one trailer I see and seeing that movie becomes the be all and end all of my life. Last year it was 'Bitch Slap'. This year it's 'Rubber' - High concept meets full retard. That is my recipe for awesome.

And with a French director, so you know it is stylish too.
