Re: Official RedsZone Movie Thread (pt. III)
Speaking of Good/Bad movies, has anyone seen The Room? It might be the ultimate example. If you don't know about it, go to youtube and watch some scenes. It is simply indescribable.
I do feel bad piling onto the movie as much as some do. Unlike the movies I listed above, Tommy Wisseau (the director, writer, and star) was making his first movie, had no previous film experience, funded it himself, and has every excuse for making a truly terrible movie. Real actors and directors like Cage, DeNiro, and Spielberg don't. They've made great movies.
With all that said, when my friends and I watched The Room, we had to stop the DVD every 5 minutes or so to discuss what had just happened. We have never done that with a movie before or since. The ubiquitous question was, "Wait, what did he just say? Does that even make sense?" It is a movie experience that is worth having. (Just be nice to poor Tommy)...
