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The Room is outdated and ahead of its time.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…
This review reportedly contains lubricant.
Many auteurs have existed during the evolution of cinema, dealing with transcendent themes that ultimately characterize the human condition. This representation of humanity through an audiovisual artform causes an epiphanic reaction in the captive spectator, as his/her human traits are either mirrored, exaggerated or dramatized, and in combination with the viewer's unique personality, way of thinking and way of feeling, cinema finally reaches a potential state of the aforementioned transcendence, an ethereal state in the viewer of personal identification that can only be consummated in perpetuity.
Tommy Wiseau, an immaculate director, screenwriter, actor and producer, conceives what seemingly is a simple melodramatic…
This movie just gets better and worse with each viewing.
don't watch this one with your parents
I have been on a bit of a movie watching hiatus for almost a month now. I went through some depression, some heartbreak, and lots of lonliness. I was so depressed i couldn't even enjoy film. That ends today. Thank you Tommy Wiseau.
All Hail the Spoon Picture!
cant get any better than a wiseau production
A little later in the night after a few more games and a few more beers, I decided it was probably about time for The Room to enter my friends lives.
The experience of watching this movie is beautifully summed up by one character who inexplicably turns up towards the end of the movie, with the line "I feel like I am sitting on an atomic bomb waiting for it to go off!" The star behind this movie and the ultimate driving force is writer/producer/director/actor Tommy Wiseau, an enigmatic man whose talent bursts all over the screen. I truly believe after watchig this film that he can do anything. His impression of a chicken, for example, is not to be…
The Room works because it's so convinced of its importance and seriousness, despite the film's perfect blend incompetence, idiocy, and craziness. It's probably why Wiseau will never be able to make another movie as fun as this, which is kind of a sad thought.
Who in their right mind could assign a proper star rating to this movie?
5 stars is too low, and 1/2 a star is too high.
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).
