The Room (2003) and The Disaster Artist (2017)

Postby Tyler » Tue Feb 09, 2016 11:41 am

The Room is considered one of the worst movies ever made. Written, Directed, Produced, and Starred by the same guy. I know a few people on here have seen it. They say it doesn't make any sense and all around awful.

James Franco is making a movie about The Room and the cast looks great. - The Disaster Artist

I think the cinemark theatres (at least here in Ames) had The Room with RiffTrax a few weeks ago.

James Franco:
“I’m editing it now. It turned out great. I play Tommy Wiseau, my brother [Dave Franco] plays Greg Sestero, the other actor in The Room. Tommy was involved; contractually we had to give him a cameo opposite me, which was very weird because I was playing him. I don’t know if that’ll end up in the movie or not, but it was a surreal experience to say the least (laughs).”

I had to do a double take on the poster, Franco looks great.

Dear god. The Room is probably one of the most memorable BAD movies I have ever watched. It is a MUST SEE.

This take on it looks like it could be pretty darn silly for anyone who loves The Room :)

Why is this marked as 2016 when it's 2017 and not out yet

Could someone tell me a synopsis of what the room is about? Watching some YouTube clips and it's just seems painful to watch entirely. Did this movie go to theaters??

Can someone tell me what is 'The Masterpiece'? The movie James Franco made is called the Disaster Artist. Tyler, maybe you should let Blue Jackets handle the titles from now on... #epicfail.

Tommy Wiseau Approves of 'The Disaster Artist' '99.9 Percent'
“He didn’t see it until SXSW, and we were unsure of what he was going to think, especially because he said, [mimicking Wiseau’s accent] ‘Greg book only 40 percent true,'” recalls Franco. “It was like, well, that’s what we based it on, so what are you going to think about our movie? And that screening was so successful, it was like a rock concert. That and the Spring Breakers screening at SXSW [in 2013] would be the two greatest screenings of my life, I imagine. I was like, ‘So, Tommy, what did you think of the movie?’ And he said, ‘I approve 99.9 percent.’ And we were like, ‘What was the 0.1 percent? He said, ‘I think the lighting, in the beginning, a little off.’ [Laughs] I told Brandon [Trost, The Disaster Artist‘s cinematographer]. He was like, Yeah, maybe we should watch The Room, get some lighting pointers!”

Does Tommy Wiseau know we are laughing at it, not with him?
