    Freaked out by this creepy... trailer, I was expecting something akin to, say, "Dune Warriors". Tonight I have faced my fears and finally watched The Room..
    It's stunningly bad indeed, but in a surprising way. I suppose Wiseau was trying to make his own equivalent of The Divine Nymph by Giuseppe Patroni Griffi (quite obvious aesthetical inspiration for Peter Greenaway and the makers of RahXephon too). You don't see this sort of stuff coming from the US very often.
    What else can I say? If you are going to watch a bad film, you can do a hell of a lot worse than The Room. Forget about Watchmen Ultimate Cut.

    I've been wanting to see this for ages. Did you see it at a screening or at home?

    Watched it at home. I doubt it reached a single cinema in the entire Europe (which is a shame). It's worth buying a DVD, if reasonably priced. This film really is something special...

    This film is real alright, and a bloody classic too. There aren't many films that I watch again straight away after seeing them the first time.

    I think a girl I was on a date with last week was telling me about this. She saw it with some friends for a birthday at the cinema, it's legendary apparantly. I hadn't heard of it, but she said people came prepared, and at certain points chucked items at the screen or waved stuff about in the air etc. Something to do with spoons..?

    Far better with the Rifftrax.

    Infact, it's actually rather good.

    Fans organise screenings at theatres in UK occasionally since it's attained cult status. There one at Prince Charles Cinema in March.

    First part of Nostalgia Critic's The Room review :D

    "You're tearing me apart Liisaaa!!" That part where he 'trashes' the room in 'anger' is especially hilarious.

    As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a ninja.

    Went to a screening of it over the weekend at the Prince Charles Cinema and it was sold out! To be fair Tommy Wiseau was there at the beginning to do a Q&A.

    Does he go to the screenings regularly? I see there's another one on next month so I'm hoping I'll be around to go to that. Still haven't seen this in a group/cinema setting and I'd loooove to.

    My friend does a podcast where they discuss a bad movie each week. This week was The Room, and I now have no desire to watch it :)

    It's quite good with the rifftrax commentary.

    It's pretty good with a whole cinema holding up lighters and swaying their arms to the music during the sex scenes.
