The Room

  1. Actors From The Room Start Kickstarter Campaign To Fund Their Own Mockumentary

    They invited all my friends! Good thinking!

    Ever since it first premiered to a mostly confused audience at LA's Laemmle Fairfax theater in 2003, The Room has seen massive cult success as a terrible, so-bad-it's-genius favorite film. Lead actor Greg Sestero (Mark) has cashed in for his part in the form of a bestselling book, The Disaster Artist, which is even going to get made into a movie by James Franco—but what about the rest of the gang? Whatever happened to Lisa's mom's breast cancer, guys?

  2. Tommy Wiseau As Batman Is The Movie Mash-Up We Deserve

    Sorry, Clooney. You've been upstaged again.

    Room spoofs are a dime a dozen, but few so perfectly capture the specific weirdness of Mr. Wiseau. The casual hair flicks! The cackling! Props to Jake Torpey for his portrayal of Batman/Tommy, and double props to director Patrick Willems for capturing that Room je ne sais quoi, right down to the terrible soundtrack.

  3. Idea Channel Asks: Can You Make So-Bad-It’s-Good Art on Purpose?

    Your Stupid Minds! Stupid! Stupid!

    I spent most of this video wondering when they were going to mention Manos: The Hands of Fate, but by the end I'd realized that it doesn't really fit the bill. Unlike other films named dropped in the video, Manos doesn't have a cult following (independent of Mystery Science Theater 3000, that is). And I'm not even sure I could say it's so bad that it's good. Even with MST3k, there are only so many minutes of poorly choreographed, non sequitur, night-gowned, wife-on-wife wrestling that a person can take. Let this video stand as reassurance to all the artists out there: if you think you might be making bad art, at least you can't be making another The Room.

  6. James Franco Will Direct And Possibly Star In A Movie About The Making Of The Room

    You are TEARING ME APART, FRANCO!

    In what has to be the weirdest sentence I've ever typed out, James Franco announced yesterday that he will be making a movie based on the making of Tommy Wiseau's The Room. I say that's the weirdest sentence because basically any time you do anything even tangentially related to Tommy Wiseau, you're in for an incredibly wild ride.

  7. Somebody Mashed Up The Room With Friends And It’s Wonderful

    How did they manage to make Denny not seem creepy?

    Watching this The Room parody title sequence without having watched The Room will probably make a person think that it's a totally normal, friendly romantic comedy. It is not. It is actually bonkers masterpiece of awful cinema, which is what makes this Friends mashup so wonderfully, surreally perfect.

  8. Because No One Demanded It, The Room Is Coming Out On Blu-Ray

    As the official season for buying unnecessary crap that no one ever wanted or asked for comes to a close, we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that, later this week, you can own a copy of The Room, Tommy Wiseau's war crime against the concepts of cinema and common decency, on Blu-Ray. We don't know why you'd want to purchase such a thing -- especially for the not-so-low price of $31.99 -- and since we frankly don't approve of it existing, we're prepared to say you might be a bad person if you do, but hey, if that's a thing that seems like a good idea to you, you can do it now. Just know that doing so probably makes you a sub-human monster.
