The Disaster Artist Review: Trying To Make Sense Of A Mystery

The Disaster Artist, a film about the making of a film, exudes a sense of near-obsession with its subject. That subject is The Room, the 2003 indie film that is considered either the most brilliant art-film ever or the worst insult to filmmaking of all time. If Ed Wood and his legendarily bad films like Plan 9 […]

Lauren Looks Back: Tommy Wiseau’s Beautiful Train Wreck ‘The Room’

What can I really say about this film? It’s arguably one of the worst (or best?) movies ever made. It’s unintentionally hilarious, has no real plot, and it’s just plain weird. If you’ve never seen it, let me give you a basic rundown: a banker’s fiancée seduces and manipulates his best friend. Super simple, right? […]

‘The Disaster Artist’ Teaser Is Here, James Franco Tackles Tommy Wiseau

When a film so bad becomes a treasured fluke, it usually means the director did something right.  Tommy Wiseau‘s The Room, released in 2003, is the best example of a goddamn disaster of a movie that continues to maintain a cult following.  With a 33% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s still a mystery as to why […]

Seth Rogen In Talks To Join James Franco’s The Disaster Artist

There is some debate as to whether or not The Room is the worst movie of all time. It’s entertaining in spite of itself, which means it is better than Slipstream; an unwatchable film written, directed, scored by and starring Anthony Hopkins. It also features consistently audible dialogue, which makes it more competent than Birdemic: Shock […]

Tommy Wiseau Promises 3D Re-Release For The Room

The Room is this generation’s Plan 9 From Outer Space, the film branded so “so-bad-it’s-good” that it’s great. Unsurprisingly, director/writer/star/perpetrator Tommy Wiseau wants to milk his current cult status for all it’s worth. That’s why he’s now promising a Blu-ray release for the movie later this year… and a 3D conversion next year. James Nguyen […]
