Current Movie: The Room – March 15
About This MovieMore
Oh boy. This one’s a doozy.
You voted on your favorite b-movie, and you picked The Room.
The Room is bad. Really bad. Wonderfully bad!
It’s so bad that they made a movie about how it was made, and THAT movie won Golden Globes.
It’s about a guy named Johnny. Johnny loves Lisa, but Lisa is tired of Johnny, so she’s sleeping with his best friend.
That’s about it. Those details are revealed in the first 15 minutes or so, and yet somehow it still takes 90 minutes to tell the story. It’s amazing.
For enthusiasts of bad cinema, this is a true opus. It’s delightfully awful. There are scenes that basically repeat themselves…several times; there are characters that don’t drive the plot; there are football catch scenes with only one recipient in the frame (and again, those scenes don’t drive the plot); there are 4 love scenes in the first 20 minutes, which clearly are composed of a single shooting session; it has chronic lip sync problems. And why is it called “The Room,” you may ask? Your completely random guess is as good as any.
It is a spectacle. And it’s going to be great with a good BCM crowd!
