he's better than this
I mean, yeah, granted, it's a bad movie. Poorly produced and woefully acted. But it wasn't that much fun either, due to the audience. Tommy Wiseau did a Q and A and people were patronising him. Also, throughout the whole film, people were just shouting shit jokes, that have already been made coutnless times before in reviews of it. I sat next to this Scouse bore who always, without fail, shouted 'MEANWHILE' when there was a shot of SanFran inbetween scenes. I don't know for who's benefit. The audience 'commentary' was almost as unsubtle as the lack of subtlety that the film is mocked for.
The joke's probably gone a bit too far really.
it's this generation's Rocky Horror or something
although saying that the big cinema at the Prince Charles is probably a too big for that kind of thing. you need a critical mass of people but probably not THAT many.
That's what's meant to be done at screenings of this film. It's like a club. Did you not realise that was going to happen at all?
Which I liked and that's what I guess what the 'club' aspect is. It's the more individual participation that was a bit too knowing, overly patronising or just plain uninspired.
It's better to just stick on with your mates and laugh at how wonderful it is, if, like myself, you're not a big fan of AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION.
I've been to one and it was kind of funny and I was in a good mood, but can totally understand people not going for that kinda ting.
ie the spoons, everyone saying the iconic lines, basically all the group involvement and traditions
but a lot of it seemed an excuse for shit comedians to commentate on it, by yelling inane stuff.
Thinking about it now, I think it may have been the scouser I was sitting next to, who had something to yell for anything, no matter how piss-poor.
I felt a bit sorry for Wiseau as well but he's probably laughing with his wallet
Was probably too drunk but all the shouting seemed really stale and it wasn't as fun mocking Tommy irl. Was just sad. :(
I like the principle of watching bad films and that maybe that The Room has been done to death perhaps and it's all a bit too knowing now
seems as though they don't know anything about bad films at all
change it to good movies club
i bet it's one of these kind of screenings where idiots will be really loudly forced-laughing at 'unintentionally funny' moments which actually are supposed to be funny you idiots
the killer snowman film, not the Michael Keaton heartwarmer
that's a pretty bad movie
those are actual bad (but fun) movies
ignoring wankers ruining things in London (y'all should be used to this by now, surely? LOL SNAP)
the production of the film itself is actually pretty interesting
and it's a chance to see James Franco in a funny wig
without tommy and greg being there and had a really great time. went on friday and had an ok time. felt a bit bad for greg cos everyone shouts abuse at him cos of his character and he seems to be gritting his teeth through it a bit. i met him in a non-the room-related scenario once (on a bus) and he was lovely though. reckon this film could be good anyway
really like the PCC events. You kinda need to go in their drunk and ready to shout crap out though.
It's a bad movie - watch it with mates for a laugh - but Rocky Horror style screenings where everyone shouts catchphrases pretends to be having fun? Naaaaaaaah.
I love Rocky Horror - this is NOT Rocky Horror.
