The Disaster Artist (2017) Movie Review where I kinda lose it because I loved it so much

by Banned Library in


When going into The Disaster Artist, there's a few things you must know. One, a man named Greg Sestero helped his weird and very rich friend Tommy Wiseau make a horrible movie called The Room (2003) that if famous if only because it is. Two, you will never learn anything about Tommy Wiseau. There's more, so much more, but why spoil yourself.

    The real big question is: Should you watch The Room before you see The Disaster Artist? Hell, man, you might as well ask me why we should know what the sun is before an eclipse? Isn't it enough that the thing is out there and could cause people to delve into madness if they think too hard on the subject?

    James Franco and his brother Dave star as our pair of nuts at the center of the hurricane. Along for the ride are just about everybody, including the How Did This Get Made podcast, mostly there I assume as a blatant lampshade on the whole affair. How the hell did any of this get made?

    To be fair, man, I loved the movie. It's funny and strange and open in a way a lot of movies are not. If Tommy Wiseau was a character from someone's brain, this mess would play out like Borat or the quaint imaginings of Wes Anderson. However, the whole thing is based in fact and therefore a work of genius.




For a Good Time Call (2012) Movie Review: Do You Like Phone Sex?

by Banned Library in


When I need money, I'm gonna totally start up with selling some sex. Except my Amazon erotica ain't selling. Maybe I should be a lady or get some talent. That's what Lauren and Katie learn in this love letter to phone sex.

    In this movie… You know what? I'll just quote imdb:

"Former college frenemies Lauren and Katie move into a fabulous Gramercy Park apartment, and in order to make ends meet, the unlikely pair start a phone sex line together."

    Let's break this down to see if you want to watch this movie:

    Do you use the non-word "frenemies?"

    Do you hate seeing privileged white girls live in elaborate apartments in New York City's super rich apartment?

    Do you believe that privileged white girls would have so much difficulty finding work they would have to get into phone sexery?

    Do you think two white girls who would both use the term "frenemy" an "unlikely pair?"

    And there's all the phone sex and use of Justin Long saying "cock." I mean, I think he said it. He's the token gay character so he should have.

    If you said "no" to any of these sentences, well, maybe go watch Thor Ragamuffin again. There's no nudity here.
