The Room - 2003 - Dir. Wiseau

I heard a lot about The Room before I saw it. Which I believe is S.O.P. for a movie like this. I'm not sure anyone really SEEKS it out. I was intrigued by the idea that Wiseau claimed it's humor was intentional. Of course, sometimes I guess I can forget how full of shit people can be as long as they stubbornly insist on something which is clearly untrue. So Tommy Wiseau is probably not a very intelligent or clever, man. I believe it took me less than five minutes to realize this fact. Well, I take that back, he must be a little clever, since he's now made a living doing what people do naturally everyday: Fail. He wanted a melodrama and to showcase his acting. He cannot act, he cannot direct. He can barely form comprehensible sentences. The Room is basically an awful drama. There's not too much to add to it. I can't say I enjoyed myself. If you are curious, read the wikipedia for a list of why this film is ridiculous. Although, I would like to point out that they mention mention Wiseau's... creepy, creepy ass body. That's right. His ass body. The movie is stupid enough to warrant yelling at the screen. I'm not sure if it's stupid enough to warrant a second viewing. Well, a sober viewing. A sober viewing alone. SO, if I was intensely under the influence of something (ANYTHING!) and with a group of people who have also seen the movie, I would watch that again. However, the odds of being in a room of people who want to have a repeat viewing of The Room seem unlikely. Although, apparently in LA, that is the thing to do.
You know, I'm thankful that at least Tommy back there as sleeves on.
