Movies that are slightly off.
Can you ever really trust anyone?
Johnny is a successful banker with great respect for and dedication to the people in his life, especially his future wife Lisa. The happy-go-lucky guy sees his world fall apart when his friends begin to betray him one-by-one.
Tommy Wiseau as Johnny a romantic at heart with a heartless fiancé who's shagging his best friend in the quintessential so bad it's bad film. Golden Gate Bridge. Swashbuckling music. The way Tommy says "Hi babe." Curious Denny. Pillow fight. Slow dancing. Rose petals and boobs. The way Tommy wiggles his ass while he is having simulated sex. Mommy dearest. Lisa's pouty face. Of course the "other man" has a badass beard. Mark's teeth. Is it hot in here? More ladies need to use that line. Trust me it will work. Oh hell yes! This seduction scene music sounds like a cross between Sade and TLC. Sexy florist. How long is free months? Lisa kinda looks like a Ninja Turtle…
I finally watched this and I now think that no words of mine can do it justice and only the words from the film itself can do that. For those who have watched the film it would be a trip down your cherished memory lane and for those who haven't the following would be reasons why it is criminal not to see this at least once in your lifetime. So here it goes.
Mark: How was work today?
Johnny: Oh, pretty good. We got a new client and the bank will make a lot of money.
Mark: What client?
Johnny: I cannot tell you; it's confidential.
Mark: Aw, come on. Why not?
Johnny: No, I can't. Anyway, how is…
"The Room" masterfully written, directed, produced, and starring Tommy Wiseau tells the Shakespearean tragedy of Johnny, a banker who is betrayed by the "love of his life", Lisa. Fueled by powerful performances and flawless directing, "The Room" is a masterpiece in filmmaking that will definetely leave it's audience speechless.
Wiseau's face is a Picasso.
The Room is outdated and ahead of its time.
It goes from appallingly bad to hilariously bad to post modernist Nirvana.
I have to rate it five stars for even that cannot make sense.
Tonight I discovered the best way to watch THE ROOM: With someone who has not only never seen it before, but has no idea what it is. Their reactions to the madness, particularly in the early scenes, were absolutely priceless.
Oh hai Letterboxd.
Did the San Francisco Tourism Bureau finance the opening credit sequence? Why is a grown couple hanging out with a 14-year-old rando? Are they done having sex yet? Why is there a decorative shower in their bedroom? Do the gods know there’s a mortal named Mark with hair that luscious? Why is he surprised Lisa’s coming onto him when she called him “baby” over the phone earlier? Was the camera supposed to go out of focus? Wait, why are they kissing now? What happened between kissing her and Mark telling her he wasn't going to do it? Are they seriously going to have sex on a hard-ass, uncarpeted, cramped spiral staircase? Are they done having sex yet? Wait, have they…
Where do I begin on this one? I will start off by saying that the description of this as the "Citizen Kane of bad movies" is a bit of an exaggeration. Yeah, this is a poorly made film that moves between being a melodramatic soap opera and soft core porn, I have to admit that I have seen worse.
In some ways the very hipster midnight movie cult following the film has generated is worse than the film itself, with people constantly yelling at the top of their lungs and throwing plastic spoons at the screen. The Room definitely IS NOT The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the audience participation actually took me out of the movie, to the point where I actually want to rewatch the film from the comfort of my home with no distractions.
"This is all so much. The candles,"
"the sexy dress."
WHAT SEXY DRESS?!
I watched this film last night, but due to the copious amounts of alcohol that was consumed I can remember very little besides throwing spoons and yelling "ya fucking slut" at every opportunity.
Movie that is worth watching because of the memes. For the rest, it includes too long B class sex scenes, bad but funny acting, repetitive drama sessions and empty plot that doesn't make any sense. In the end, you're probably either "what a waste of time" or "I haven't laughed like that after a long time" or maybe both.
You may think it's fun to watch because it's so stupid but it has so many boring I-want-to-kill-myself parts that I actually just recommend watching Tommy Wiseau laughing compilation and that's all you need to know about it.
It's the Best Worst Movie Ever Made in Existence- I know I gave it a one star out of five, but I really do love this movie. It's terrible in every way- but it's so damn entertaining. It's such an atrocity, it's hilarious.
It's truly a must see phenomenon in order to understand.
Oh, hi Mark!
Quite simply the most impressively bad movie I've ever seen. I am convinced this is a work of creative genius, as Wiseau must have had to try really, really hard to make this film as bad as it is.
do you know ANYTHING...about LIFE? you will after this piece of san fransisco history
Outstandingly extremely confusing and magic.
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
