If you’ve never heard of The Room, chances are you’ve been living under a rock. In a cave. On Mars. For the benefit of the members of the Martian cave-dwelling community, The Room is a 2003 cult film known as ‘the Citizen Kane of bad movies’. It revolves around Johnny, portrayed by writer-director-producer-executive producer-star Tommy Wiseau. He is engaged to Lisa (Juliette Danielle), who decides she is bored with Johnny and sleeps with his best friend, Mark (Greg Sestero), who is Johnny’s best friend. That’s about it. Half of the movie is sub plots that go nowhere, badly made melodrama, and some of the most awkward sex scenes in film history.
Today I’m going to be ranting about tumblr. As anyone who knows me will know- I loathe this site with every aspect of my being. But the thing that annoys me the most is the people ON tumblr.

Two people with no character flaws meet, they fall in love (regardless of the chemistry they actually have), something happens to separate them in which they sit around moping [...]
Hi everyone, Over the Christmas holidays and the half-term in February there are two things that I want to share with you. They are both Harry Potter based, if you are a Harry Potter fan I would recommend you go. The first one is the Warner Brother Studio tour in Watford. You get to [...]
A little bit late, but here is my retrospective of 2012 in film, with my top 15 best and worst movies to come from last year.
Going into Les Miserables, I was cautiously skeptical on this movie’s overall quality and its quality as an adaptation of the show. I have never seen the stage version live, but I watched it on a concert DVD and really enjoyed it. When I found out Tom Hooper was directing I was even more skeptical. “This is obviously pandering for the Oscars,” I thought, “It won’t turn out any good, like The Iron Lady, or Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” I didn’t think it could be done. It wasn’t the kind of thing that would work as a movie. It was too ambitious. It had no spoken dialogue. They couldn’t do it. Could they?
