Tommy Wisseau's "The Neighbors" Coming September...
« on: July 15, 2014, 10:48:49 AM »
If anyone else became obsessed with Mr. Wisseau after the Room and did some digging (Or read some posts here on the Rifftrax board) you might remember he had a pilot for a TV show that involved someone named Princess Penelope, among other things. So that seems to be a thing that's happening, now. Coming September.

If you're worried about the joke being ruined when Tommy's trying to intentionally be funny, you haven't seen Tommy try to be intentionally funny yet.

BEHOLD!

The worst part is that someone is paying Tommy Wiseau for this.

For me the worst part is it looks like they're reshooting from scratch and we'll probably never know what all the stuff in the original trailer meant. :(

I never understood the Rifftrax community fetishizing this man and his horrible "The Room". Maybe its because I actually deal with crazy and/or shitty filmmakers in my business and the rest of you don't.  That's probably it, because I just don't get the appeal.  A lot of the other movies Rifftrax has done have been as bad or worse than "The Room" but for some bizarre reason that one movie and that one filmmaker have "gone viral" with you guys.

I've dealt with a few crazy filmmakers in my time, but I find Tommy particularly fascinating as a psychological study. He is an auteur in every sense of the word, and his movie reveals so much more about him than even he realizes, and yet it still raises so many possibly-unanswerable questions about him.

The Disaster Artist, which is an excellent book all around, answers a few more questions about him, but then raises even more. He's an endless rabbit hole of psychological wonder.

Yeah, that's the allure. There's about 20 layers of enigma wrapped around the man. I think those of us who are stuck on Tommy just want it all to make sense. Like there's an answer somewhere always just out of reach.

It's not just, "He made a really bad movie." Those happen all the time. It's "He made an inexplicable movie."

I wouldn't say that. I totally get why people find The Room painful, but the most negative feeling it ever gave me was confusion--and even then, it was the FUN kind of confusion. I genuinely find the film delightful in its mysteriousness.

Yeah, it's like watching Japanese commercials. There's this sense of, "This came from a culture that is totally alien to the one I'm from."  It's not painful. It's fascinating and amusing. Also, in Tommy's case there IS no culture in which The Room makes sense, and that makes it even more fascinating...

Yeah, its not quite the same as incompetence.  I don't watch the Room the same way as Sharknado or Birdemic.  Those movies are horribly made, and could have been improved at least slightly with the right cinematography or effects and competent editing.  Nothing can really save the Room from being what it is.
