Man, it kinda makes me not want to try to make good movies and just attempt to make the worst thing possible so I can 1) Relase it 2) Attain cult classic status 3) Write a book about how awful it was and 4) Get that book turned into a movie.

Fucking genius.

I will never watch this film. Life is to short to endorse talentless trash, I don't care if one does so "ironically". That this guy is raking in a lot of money when talented filmmakers of small indies can't get their stuff to audiences is obscene.

Apparently life is also too short to use proper grammar.

There's a persistence of vision in The Room that regardless of its degree of silliness or the frustrating mocking approach to digging it does exist. That to me qualifies it as something apart from your run-of-the-mill cheap terrible piece of shit.

I proudly enjoy loving it because it's a beguiling experience. As far as the adaptation of Sestero's book and it's overall following, you can't control the way in which folks enjoy it -- either unabashedly or ironically. It's why I hate the MST3K'ing of movies or folks who go into things looking to pick knits with technical things they don't fucking know how to do themselves.

I don't know where I'm going with this at this point. The Room holds a special place in my heart.

Can you check the grammar on that for me, cobbler?

I've got Impy to thank for first showing clips of this back in '08, maybe '09. I arranged screenings for my friends before getting it programmed at the theater I worked at a couple years later.

The cinema down the road from my place does monthly showings. I've been to two of them, it's a blast. People throwing footballs in the aisles, spoons at the screens, etc.

The Room is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen, that's all I know. It doesn't really matter how the shittiness came to be, so I try to avoid all of the supplementary making-of material. Let the magic stay magical.

Fair call! I don't expect this will be met with much excitement, but if people are down we should all watch it and post here. The whole film is on YouTube. Me and Bonnie did it once, was fucking fun.

I never said I don't enjoy the Room. It's hilariously awful. But I hate myself for liking it.

'Tarzan' Starring Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie Gets Release Date

This could be fun.


But then, I actually have moderate expectations for Aronofsky's 'Noah'
