Kelvin Says Hats Off:

Just saw “The Disaster Artist: Wiseau Serious?” Conclusion: 7/10. It’s not always easy to pinpoint what exactly makes a movie good. THE DISASTER ARTIST opens up with various actors and directors talking about how influential the movie THE ROOM was to them. I believe what this movie is building towards is the question of how something can be so bad and maladroit that it is actually, in the end, meaningful. Regardless of what you think about THE ROOM, it’s clear that its legacy has persisted. I just wish that this movie would have spent more time fleshing that question out. Nevertheless, it is pretty hilarious. The re-enacting of scenes from the original movie are uncanny and James Franco does an excellent job inhabiting the Tommy Wiseau character. The uneasy friendship between his character and his brother, Dave Franco’s, character is displayed very well. It’s a very enjoyable watch and I would definitely recommend either watching THE ROOM before seeing this or at least go in having seen some of the more infamous scenes from the movie. #IGiveThisAHiMark #TommyGun #MoanOhLisa #TwistedSestero #AccentsHappen

This movie definitely requires seeing the film “The Room” beforehand. Or, knowing a ton about the story behind the film. The Room was released in 2003 and has achieved cult status as the worst movie ever made. It is simply hilarious. Which is what I expected when I saw this movie, and it certainly didnt disappoint. James Franco did an absolutely perfect job at portraying the infamous Tommy Wiseau. His portrayal was spot on and I really enjoyed watching him on screen. I was laughing for most of the film. It’s only weakness is found within it’s strength. To me, it’s so centered around Tommy that some of the other things are just kinda plain, nothing super remarkable about the music or cinematography. But, honestly, all of that is ok with me because you’re not coming to this movie for that, you’re coming to see how this ridiculous film was made. If you’ve seen The Room, this is a MUST SEE and I’ll definitely be seeing it again.

Just saw ‘The Disaster Artist’: Why Make Good Movie When Bad Movie Do Trick? conclusion: 8/10. This movie has a great range of emotion to it, and it centers around Tommy’s character. I found myself laughing the whole way through because of how ridiculous his character is, but I also felt a lot of empathy for him as he struggles to be accepted by the world. The acting is very good overall, and although some plot points feel like they don’t really go anywhere, it stays interesting the whole time. #blahblahland #dontwanttobescenewithyou #Wiseaumysterious #theroomforimprovement #keepyourscreenplayinyourpocket #hahawhatastory
