Paul Scheer sheds some light on The Room, lets us in on a secret in The Disaster Artist, and answers your questions. Plus, we explore the origins of midnight movies and take a look at IMDb's Top 10 Stars of 2017.
This a film that shows why IMDb needs to add a zero star function, for giving this a film a rating equates that this film was in any shape or way good. The very fact that something like this can be made and given the release that it had is down right deplorable. It tries to be offensive, but utterly fails in that regard and just remains juvenile. The sketches themselves are absurd like a Jackass spoof called Blackass, which is just Jackass with black people. How about a play on words with the Amazing Racist, a sketch which is so soft that it is not so much offensive as it is cringe worthy, for it is played too safe. Lastly there is the Dirty Harry sketch called Flirty Harry(Adrien Brody) where everything out of his mouth is a double entendre and would make James Bond blush with embarrassment and I am talking about the Roger Moore Bond, how they managed to get Adrien Brody in this is beyond me. There are other sketches but these three are the ones they are proud of the most and that is not saying much. The framing of this film as different stories for different apps is entirely pointless, for the film seems to forget that what we are seeing are apps. At least in other bad films like The Room, Troll 2, and Birdemic, you at least can laugh at how poorly it is made, here there is no such luck, for you are ticking down how much longer can this 80 minute film go and makes Movie 43 look like a masterpiece of cinema. I would rather spend a month at Gitmo, than ever watch this sorry excuse for a film as long as I live.
