Weekend Matinee: THE ROOM

If you're any geek worth your salt, I'm sure you've heard of this movie. For those of you who aren't worth your salt, allow me to enlighten you.

Back in 2001 (or so), visionary director Tommy Wiseau released an epic upon the world. His movie, full of drugs, sex, infidelity, and friendship, is one of the worst things ever made. And it's amazing for it.

It's quite a feat to balance all of that badness into one perfect movie, but some how Wiseau pulls it off. It's random, indecipherable, and just generally unintentionally hilarious. If you get a chance, you have to check it out.

If you're in the LA area, you're in the best place to see it. The last Saturday of every month (like today!) there's a huge screening, complete with rabid fans and Q&As with the man himself. It's one of the best midnight movies I've ever been a part of, and totally something everyone should experience. Just remember to bring spoons.

This week's clip is, to me, the essence of the movie. It might not be the most quotable scene, but it shows the insane filmmaking ability that is Tommy Wiseau. Enjoy.
