Thoughts on “The Room”

So I watched The Room recently. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s developed a cult status as being the worst movie of all time. I first heard of it a few years back, when Sarah told me about it. We watched some clips on Youtube, and it was really weird. But I figured it’s cause the scenes were out of context, and that made them weirder. Well I finally watched it recently. It’s just weird..and uncomfortable…and slightly sinister. It’s taken me a week to wrap my head around it and get around to writing this post.

The person who made this movie is someone called Tommy Wiseau. He self funded this film (the budget was $6 million, and it only made like $1000 in its opening weekend), directed, wrote, produced and starred in this strange film. This dude is somewhat of an enigma, and no one know anything about him, not even his age or where he came from. But I found this out after watching the movie.

So, let’s get into my thoughts on the film.

“Why” came out my mouth a lot. Things just didn’t make sense. There were a few sex scenes, which were awkward and way too long. There were three in the first 30 minutes, and they actually used the same footage in two of them.

Plot lines came and go so fast that I couldn’t keep up with them. In one scene, the mother announces she has breast cancer, and all Lisa says is “Don’t worry about it” (which actually, everyone says a lot), and nobody ever mentions it again. Then, there was a scene where a guy with a gun threatens Danny with a gun asking about his money. You never hear from him again, and no one talks about this happening for the rest of the movie.

They throw around a football a lot. I don’t know why. One guy comes in with a football and then they start throwing it back and forth. There’s lots of laughing, then someone falls over, and everyone rushes over and asks if he’s okay. Then it’s the next scene. This happens twice.

Also, the way everyone speaks is so bland and odd.

I permanently had a confused face for the whole duration of the movie. Rory was with me, and he thought the movie seemed sinister. We couldn’t put our finger on it, but there was just watching this movie made for a really weird atmosphere. Am I glad I watched it? I don’t know. But it was definitely an experience. I’m now more involved with this now that I know The Disaster Artist has been made into a movie. It’s based on the book by Greg Senastra who worked on The Room alongside Tommy. I’m reading it, and getting more confused about the mystery that is Tommy Wiseau and The Room.

Have you guys seen The Room? If you have, I’m sorry. If you haven’t…well it’s interesting..

  1. I’ve seen this movie and I have to say I strangely love the atmospehere in it. It is so bad that it feels kinda good, maybe I’m strange but I found it so weird and funny that I kinda liked it in the end haha. xx

    1. It’s definitely a love/hate kind of movie. You either love it, or you really hate it. Haha, I have a friend who recommended this movie to me ages ago and she weirdly liked it too 😀

  2. I thought you’d watched the Room film where a woman and her son are locked in a room and that’s all the kid knows. You might like it☺ I’ve never heard of this film but your first picture is from the London Underground☺ c

  3. I. Don’t. Know. What. To. Feel. I laughed so much in this post. I actually spit once. “Why’s he having sex with her belly button?” The trailer for The Disaster Artist reeled me the fuck in even though I didn’t want it to. I’m so interested. I’d never even heard of this, but I’ll tell you one thing, anything Franco is worth a look. I’ll probably be able to watch The Room more lightheartedly now.

  4. I watched the scene you included and the dialogue is delivered in an odd way, I can understand why you found it strange. Don’t think I’ll be watching this anytime soon haha 😛

  5. Haha omg my boyfriend and I started watching this on his phone in bed as a joke one night after watching all the Pewdiepie videos about it. We ended up watching the entire thing and sometimes he even asks me to play that ridiculous song from it while we’re driving ? it’s so bad, but still in a hilarious way. I’d love to watch the disaster artist soon!

  6. I am laughing so hard right now. I have never heard of this movie, and you just gave a scathing review, and yet for some reason I am searching Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu for it. What is wrong with me?! 😛

    1. Ooh, interesting! I heard of the Disaster Artist after looking up more on The Room. I think it’d be more fun to watch The Room after The Disaster Artist so you can fully see how weird it gets haha!
