The Room @ SoundCheck

People. Gather round. Think you know what the worst movie of all time is?

Leap Year?

I Know Who Killed Me?

Batman and Robin?

All strong contenders, no doubt. But this revered title undoubtedly belongs to a particular labour of love starring, directed, produced, executive produced AND written by the mysterious Tommy Wiseau. I give you…THE ROOM.

It has to be seen to be believed. Honestly. Never has a movie made so little sense, with so many sub plots briefly introduced and quickly abandoned, nor has there ever been a leading man such as Tommy. He’s like some kind of vaguely Eastern European cyborg, with an accent once described as “Borat trying to do an impression of Christopher Walken playing a mental patient.” This alone should give you reason enough to want to see this film. Tonight, at 8.00, SoundCheck in Spy Bar are screening The Room. I know it’s short notice, but if you can’t make it, worry not! There will be another screening in May, where the audience will be graced by the presence of Greg Sestero, who plays Mark. For those who have seen it, “Oh hi Mark” is actually one of the funniest and most quotable lines in the whole thing. Not to mention classic quotes like “Leave your stupid comments in your pocket!”, “Chocolate is a symbol of love” and conversations like this:

Mark: How was work today?

Johnny: Oh pretty good. We got a new client… at the bank. We make a lot of money.

Mark: What client?

Johnny: I can not tell you, its confidential.

Mark: Oh come on. Why not?

Johnny: No I can’t. Anyway, how is your sex life?

Seriously. And I didn’t even get to the creepy recycled sex scenes and the conversation that takes place with three main characters playing football in an alley wearing tuxedos. FOR NO GOOD REASON. The moral of the story is: go see this movie, because you will never ever forget the experience.

    I’ve heard of this one! I won’t be anywhere near SoundCheck (living in Caark as I do), but I shall make it my mission in life to see it, regardless. They say it’s worse than Marley & Me!

  2. Sweary, even though I’ve never seen Marley & Me I can guarantee that it’s worse than anything else anyone has ever seen. There are no words to describe it in all it’s crazy rubbish glory.

  3. Sweary says:

    But clearly it’s so rubbish it’s brilliant!

    Whereas so many would-be-contenders are just so rubbish they’re rubbish.
