Recasting for a Serious Version of “The Room”

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , on 03/23/2015 by Taylor Holt


Idea from Michael S.!

If you haven’t seen Tommy Wiseau’s live-action motion picture “black comedy,” The Room, I don’t know what to say to you. It’s a standard, or at least, it set one. When people talk about how HORRIBLE big budget movies are because there’s so much like, totally gross CGI unlike those amazingly quirky indie dramadies, I always ask them if they’ve seen The Room. It’s my way of telling them that a movie you didn’t like is not the same as a truly terrible movie.

But what if it wasn’t an awful movie? I know that’s like saying “What if we didn’t have to die” or something that would unmake everything we know about life, but imagine a world where Tommy Wiseau got to make the movie he originally thought he made? Or at least the dialogue was spoken by actors who knew what they were doing? Here are some ideas for a remake that will never happen and it never should. Continue reading

Man, there’s a lot going on lately. I can’t say it’s all important but it must be noteworthy, since we made a note of it. Just a quick rundown of some of the latest updates goin’ ’round the net. Including John Goodman as a Transformer and a deleted Amazing Spider-Man 2 scene that may have answered some questions…or raised more. Continue reading

Looking for a brilliant film to impress all of your friends with your knowledge of quirky indie movies? Want to make an impression with the ladies on campus by showing you have an artistic, sensitive side? Want to see what it looks like if cancer itself were able to make a film?

If you answered ‘no’ to the first two questions, and ‘yes’ to the third, then “The Room” is for you.

No, the movie’s not here, you idiot. I’m just typing them. Continue reading

Good Bad Movies and Bad Bad Movies

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , on 09/25/2012 by Taylor Holt

“I was supposed to what? Talk to them? I could’ve sworn this was the scene where I killed everybody. Okay, from the top.”

A few weeks ago, I went over the topic of bad movies and how enjoyable they can be. It’s a different type of fun than watching a great movie and there’s a limitless amount of awfulness to view. With all the great terrible movies out there, it may be even easier to come across the ones that aren’t good bad, just…bad bad.

What makes a good bad movie and what makes just a plain awful movie? I can’t help but think of the differences between the two after watching a film that opened up last weekend and climbed its way to the top without any problem. Yep- Resident Evil: Retribution. It’s already made up twice its budget which is more than it deserves. Continue reading

Slow Day, Playaz

If you can’t tell, I’ve once again failed as a reviewer. As a writer, oh I’m amazing, sure. But a reviewer, I’ll let you down every time. Something friends, family, and most of all, my dad has had to learn the hard way. What can I say, I’m a free spirit.

Kind of like how this Bison used to be.

In any case, I’m still going to be reviewing Premium Rush and the sure-to-be-a-waste-of-time The Apparition, it’s just taking me longer than usual. Can you tell I’m a little skeptical of the second one? I can’t help it, PG-13 Horror is just about the lamest, greediest type of movie that can be made other than say, Twilight. Both of which happen to feature Ashley Greene so I guess you could say her track record is a big fat smear. Hey, she’s making money at least.

Now if we want to talk about quality in movies, look no further than Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. Below is the famous clip Oh Hi Mark in animated form. Its rendering perfectly captures Wiseau’s subtle yet painful emoting of Johnny; a man getting closer and closer to the edge. And Mark? Well, he’s just up there thinkin’, y’know?

Check back in tomorrow.

This Movie Suuucks: The Room

To describe The Room is not that disimilar to getting in a car wreck: No matter how much or how well you explain just what it’s like to be in that situation, no one can truly understand until they suffer through it themselves. And Lord, do you suffer. Continue reading
