The Room

Well it was sorta better than Wicker Man.

So is The Room all it's cracked up to be in the eyes of cinema? Well, yes. It is astonishing the story and inner workings of this movie, how it was made, the behind the scenes recounts, it's hard to believe kinda! I was flipping through bits of trivia and I couldn't believe half of what I was reading. And I have got to review The Disaster Artist after this, I need visuals to this incredible story. So our story is about Johnny a banker with questionable nationality played by Tommy Wiseau who has cemented his persona in the mind of pop culture forevermore, I can't really explain it or even talk about it you just have to see it. It really is beyond words his performance. But anyway, Johnny lives in San Francisco with his future wife Lisa and an odd entourage of friends but we'll center on one, Mark played by Tommy's best frenemie Greg who was a major hand in making the movie. And soon Lisa gets tired of Johnny and starts having an affair with Mark as they go on their usual lives of having sex scenes that make Fifty Shades look competent, playing catch with a football, and having the exact same conversation with Lisa's mom. Not once, or twice, or three times a lady, but 5 f***ing times! FIVE!!? Whyyyyy?? They don't discuss anything! Ever! Oh my God this movie drags and pads more than any other movie. It's not even really that funny! I laughed maybe twice at an odd line, but beyond that I was mainly trying to figure out why there was so many talking and sex scenes that didn't contribute anything, to the point where I felt I found a rupture in the space-time continuum because of how scenes kept repeating. No you know what it was, it was like seeing alternate realities of the same event, the same thing happened but with ever so slight variables. Space is warped, and time is bendable! Oh my God, this movie is bad. I fully believe this is the Citizen Kane of bad movies. I've seen some shit in my day, especially in this month but boy howdy let me tell you, The Room is a whole 'nother beast. I'm not sure if I can recommend it but if you are morbidly curious go now, and heaven help you! I really don't have much to say guys, it's the king of enjoyably bad movies, it has a big cult following and now probably more interest and love since The Disaster Artist hit. Maybe it will change my opinion on the film and make me enjoy it more at just how batshit crazy it is but until then, I am not going out of my way to see another bad movie for a long, long time. Give it another 5 years before we do this again. This month was rough, a bit of fun, a lot of pain, an entirety of I hope you people appreciate what I do for you.

Until next time....
