This Week in Cult movies
August 6, 2014 9:42 AM - Subscribe

Monday brings us the contemporary classic The Room, otherwise known as Oh hi.

Two more scheduled, and I'll probably add some new ones in next week so you can plan for many weeks of nervous, bewildered, and fantastical viewing:

August 18: Pink Flamingos
August 25: Zoolander

I have never actually forced myself to watch this. I am so excited!

I see The Room being advertised at midnight movies all the time, but I've never taken the time to sit down and watch. I am going to work it in this weekend. I'm hoping it's as much of a train wreck as it has been described.

The first 10 or 15 minutes are very cringe-worthy, as in, "I know this is supposed to be terrible, but YE GODS" but if you stick through it, it gets better. Or worse.

Funny you say that. I got about ten minutes into it last night before deciding that I must be too drunk to make sense of it. I will try again today, sans booze.
