The Disaster Artist actually makes bad films look good

Recommended Posts

This week has been a little hectic, with seeing friends/family for the holidays, but hopefully (?) I will get a chance to catch up on other (non-Star Wars) movies a little next week.  “Disaster Artist” and “Shape of Water” (opening this week) are very high on my list.   My wife and I are going to see “Shape...” this Sunday but I may have to see “Disaster Artist” solo; not one person I know wants to see it, nor do they share my perverse fascination with “The Room.”

Enjoyable, even on your own...

Finally saw “The Disaster Artist” (2017) this afternoon.

Lots of fun.   I enjoyed it, though I wouldn’t go so far as to say its an easily accessible comedy for anybody.  I saw it with a very lively audience of about 30 or so people who were obviously familiar with “The Room” (that helps... a lot).  But structurally and in tone, the movie reminds me of a mix between “Ed Wood” (1994) and “Man on the Moon” (1999).   James Franco’s pitch perfect comic performance as the real-life Tommy Wiseau is almost as brilliant as Jim Carrey’s Andy Kaufman, IMO.
