Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
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The Room is outdated and ahead of its time.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.
I'm not religious any more I gave it up for lent! But this film was so horrid I nearly posted and asked everyone to light candles and pray that I survive this film to live yet another day! But then I thought to myself if there really was a god this film never would have seen the light of day! ;-)
The script was atrocious! The acting was a joke! Directing was non existent! I honestly couldn't find one single element in the film that actually worked! The first obvious mistake was that it was written, directed and starred Tommy Wiseau!
Any who I was befuddled as to the reason why someone would request that I personally view it! So…
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.
I'm not sure if Tommy Wiseau is the biggest disgrace to happen to filmmaking......or he's a fucking genious.
How could I possibly rate this terrible masterpiece.
Acts more as a vanity project rather than a decent movie. It can be seen and will probably be better if you think about it as a semi-autobiography of Tommy Wiseau. I did naht like it. I do agree that it can be considered as one of the worst films in existence. I would recommend it to be seen on April Fools' Day. That's bullsheet. I did naht. Oh hai, Mark!
I would be a world champion football player under Tommy Wiseau's ruleset.
Una "película" que si no le pones un lógico 1 de nota, le clavas un 10 de disfrute.
"¡Pero porque tan extremista!" o "o te gusta o no te gusta" me dirán algunos, pero es que no es tan fácil cuando te encuentras con una peli como esta. Ustedes decidirán a cual extremo ir, pero yo prefiero clavarle la nota que merece...
The most enjoyable bad movie you'll ever see!
This is my 15th viewing of The Room, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. It is, without question, the single greatest bad movie ever.
I'm sure, over time, I'll be doing more reviews for this film, so I'll just hit on a few notes here.
It's been a few days more than a year since I saw The Room for the first time in a theater, complete with Tommy Wiseau in person for a Q&A. Watching it after that experience is like watching it all over again. Being around others that shared such a strong and bizarre love for a film that, by any standard, doesn't deserve it, was a welcomed experience.
Plan 9 From Outer Space is the grandaddy of all great bad movies, but The Room is the greatest. I question whether or not it could ever be topped.
Wow... That was, a movie?! I think?!
I think this film actually broke my soul... I think watching this film is what dying feels like. I would class it as a surreal drama where literally nothing makes any kind of sense or logic, so many questions go unanswered and there is no resemblence of any real life situations. The birthday party fight scenes are painfully amazing, almost as much as the ones in Undefeatable. As horrifying as this thing is, I am so glad it exists!
Cinematic Achievement: 0/10
Entertainment Value: 8/10.
The Room has enough classic scenes that it's easy to understand its cult following among bad movie aficionados. Still, most of the film is just tedious and doesn't quite manage to achieve the "so bad it's good" status of Troll 2.
I'M FED UP WITH THIS WORELD
For five years, film critic Scott Tobias compiled "The New Cult Canon" in a regular column for The A.V. Club…
Many favorites, as well as a small handful of films that I don't care for... in no particular order (1960-2014).
