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The Room is outdated and ahead of its time.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.
Oh, hai lettersboxs
The Room, so unbelievably entertaining it hurts. It hurts as you must wait for it to leave your memory so as for it to be unbelievable again.
That didn't make sense? It's confidential.
Anyway how's your sex life?
Tommy Wiseu, he is described by my friend as Zombie Fabio, to others he is known as the person who claims to direct movies when he picks up his welfare check, to yet others (Lisa) he is their Rose, to me he is simultaneously the aborted fetus brother of Joey Tribiani of F.R.I.E.N.D.S as well as my personal comedian. He is my personal comedian in that no matter when or where I can simply think of his face or…
A movie unavailable to the critical eye.
WARNING: don't take this review serious, thank you.
Oh, The Room. The film Tommy Wiseau has delivered to us all. An unforgettable complete masterpiece. It has such amazing quotes like, "you're tearing me apart Lisa!!" To "I did not hit her, it's not true, it's bullshit, I did not her, I DID NAHT! Oh, hai Mark." It has an amazing unforgettable catchy soundtrack, beautiful cinematography, and amazing acting! The greatest scenes were when they were all playing football! Or the flower shop scene. This movie completely destroyed me and left so much emotional and mental scars. This erotic-romance, black-comedy will completely tear you apart! It's the greatest film of all time. I would give it an 11/10 and a 6/5.…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
i'm pretty torn on this review
TEEARIN ME APART
I CAN'T BELIEVE I SAW TOMMY WISEAU'S ASS
For there never was a tale of more woe
Than of that bitch Lisa and her dear Tommy Wiseau
It's the Citizen Kane of bad movies for a reason.
The Room is awful, but it's that unmissable kind of awful that you have to see to believe. The fact that this movie exists is one of life's greatest treasures.
The main story is pretty damn bad, featuring incredibly poor writing, incredibly poor acting, disappearing subplots, gratuitous sex scenes and an overall boring feel to it. But the performance from Tommy Wiseau is so hilariously bad and quotable, alongside the generally poor writing for the other characters that it ends up becoming a strange sort of comedy film that's a lot of fun to watch with friends.
I'd say that this is the greatest bad movie of all time. It's something that every movie fan has to see at least once in their lifetime, you're guaranteed to get a few laughs out of its horridness.
honestly, if you think this is a bad film, (and i know this sounds harsh) you are a boring person who does not deserve love, even from your family/pets.
maybe 35% of the dialogue from this has made its way into my semi-everyday vocabulary. I LOVE THE ROOM

Many favorites, as well as a small handful of films that I don't care for... in no particular order (1960-2014).
