Yesterday I hung out with my good pal Tim and was later joined by his lady Alise. Tim and I had been talking about how we hadn’t watched Scott Pilgrim vs. the World since January and kept talking about having a nerd-out day to watch it together, but we’ve both been B I Z Z A Y. I have such a nerd boner for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World — I watched it 3 times in the theater last year, and I bought the DVD the morning it came out. In fact, I walked to Target to buy it before I had class (I used to live within walking distance of a mall). He suggested making it a double feature with The Room — Entertainment Weekly hailed it as “the Citizen Kane of bad movies.” It’s so bad, it’s AWESOME. We ended up watching it twice. Ugh… so hilarious. It’s supposed to be a drama, but the acting is so horrible, the script is weak, and there’s tons of plot holes, BUT IT’S SO AMAZING.
Take a looksie:
Tommy Wisseau, who wrote, directed, and starred in it, said that it’s a black comedy, but you can totally tell it’s trying so hard to be a drama. It was also filmed with both a 35 mm camera and an HD one because he didn’t know the difference… /facepalm.
The Room also has some pretty fantastic dialog. Here are some of my favorite lines:
- “Leave your stupid comments in your pocket.” – Mark
- “I feel like I’m sitting on an atomic bomb waiting for it to go off.” – Steven
- “If you think I’m tired today, wait till you see me tomorrow.” – Claudette
- 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, it’s confidential.
Mark: Oh come on. Why not?
Johnny: No I can’t. Anyway, how is your sex life?
- “As far as I’m concerned, you can drop off the Earth. That’s a promise.” – Mark
Also, watch this super hilarious clip:
I highly recommend watching The Room! And also Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. <– greatest movie EVER. Okay maybe not ever, but close.
