First Movie Review: "The Room" (2003)

Heh, I've had this post on draft for so long, and now I'm just starting to put the finishing touches on it. I'll basically say I think of the film, and then I'll compare my rating versus Rotten Tomatoes or some other site.
(WARNING SPOILER AHEAD)


This movie is basically about a man, his cheating fiancee, and his best friend in a typical love triangle. Well I've just got to say I actually enjoyed watching this film. At times tho, it was pretty unbearable, but for the most part, it's hilarious. I actually think the acting is intentionally bad for a comedic effect, but the world may never know. It's considered a drama, but in my eyes, it's both, a "dramedy" of sorts. When I watched the movie at first, I noticed that the audio is actually dubbed, interestingly enough. It made them look funny when they talked because it didn't seem to sync, and I was right all along. There are other characters in the film, which seem to have little to no purpose, whatsoever. The plot is a little loopy, one mention of something will never pop up in the film again, or something just won't add up. I was also pretty disappointed at how the film ended, which lowered my overall score. It's hilarious, to me anyway. And there ya have it folks. My apologies for not making it longer, but there's not much more to say! Thanks for reading.

  8. i hope you are right about the bad acting for comedic effect. Its a bit annoying when a movie is bad because of the acting like this and not because it was intentional

  17. lol haven't heard the word "dramedy" since Tiny Toon Adventures. It's a really good word. People should use it more often when describing movies.

  21. I hope it's on Netflix Instant, I'm generally not upset about watching a movie that was seemingly free and only wasted 90-120 minutes.

  32. This is a cult classic because of how bad it is. There are clubs that meet weekly to watch it and every week the same members gasp with shock and some people even walk out becasue of how bad it is.
