Still one of the best experiences in a movie theater I've ever had. I met Tommy Wiseau (and Greg Sestero) and he was SO WEIRD to me and was dressed like a 12-year old emo kid. I couldn't even deal.

I believe as my friends and I walked away, he bellowed to us: "DO NOT WORRY ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE IN THIS MOMENT. WORRY ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING...OUT THERE!"

So I'm currently reading Greg Sestero's (aka oh hai Mark!) book "The Disaster Artist" all about the making of The Room and Tommy Wiseau being a crazypants. It is a must read!

That book is being adapted into a film directed by James Franco (and is probably going to be starring him and his brother Dave)!

Not lying.

This is like the greatest thing I've ever seen. It's so gloriously terrible. My cousin and I were laughing so hard we were in tears at times. I need to show this to everyone! And I am determined to check out one of the midnight screenings.

It's everything I'd heard it was and more.

"Take Me to the River" marks an auspicious directing debut for Matt Sobel. There's not a stale moment in it.
- John Hartl, Seattle Times

The film exemplifies a very distinctive vision that marks it as one of the year's most promising debuts.

Sobel evokes more terror from a shot of a field of sunflowers, or a weathered barn, than can be found in the last dozen found-footage films combined.

That will be my change of subject line for at least a week


Oh god I know! LOL. That was great.

The Room

lol, well that was trash. Three sex scenes in the first half an hour. Jesus. And they go on for an age! It reminds me of one of those softcore 90s thrillers starring, like, Angie Everhart or someone. It's definitely filmed in that hazy, sleazy way. But sure, it's such a shit film. It amazes me that he didn't make it intentionally bad. What's the deal with the speech ... is it dubbed? "Hey doggy" "the computer business is competitive" lol

The acting is extremely bad. But I don't understand why it is so revered as a bad movie. It's not as if it was made by a respected director. It's a trash movie made by a nobody. Why did it ever get noticed?

Wissau's voice in the film reminds me of somebody or a character that I've heard a lot (and recently too). It's REALLY fucking bugging me!

I never even heard about this film until recently with discussion about The Disaster Artist. Maybe i'll wait for that film instead.

It's hilariously bad. But I don't subscribe to the "so bad it's good" rule and still shitting on it with an F. I believe if it provides enjoyment, then no F should be given. But for me, it did not provide enjoyment. It is shit. An excruciating watch. Terrible acting, stupid story, and the worst dialogue and delivery you're ever likely to witness.

I will catch The Disaster Artist, but I really don't even feel like giving it the time of day. The more exposure it gets, the more successful Greg Sestero will believe he is - and let's face it he is also such a talentless prick.

Here, look at this. The ridiculousness continues...

Interesting. I heard about The Disaster Artist very recently, but I haven't known about The Room for longer than, say, a year.

I've watched this 5 times. But it NEEDS to be seen with others. It wouldn't be very fun to watch alone. I still look forward to showing it to more people ;).
