  • Wha-- whott-- why?

  • I just don't get it I always catch you fuckers watching this sick shit

  • THIS IS SICKENING.

  • THE DISASTER ARTIST

  • WOOW

  • PEWDIEPIE, DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE NEW MOVIE THEY'RE MAKING? THE DISASTER ARTIST?

  • No, no. I've never heard of it!!!!!!!!!!

  • Please tell me more!!!!!

  • SOMEONE NEEDS TO TELL YOU THAT THEY ARE MAKING A MOVIE ABOUT TOMY WISEAU AND THE ROOM, IT'S CALLED "THE DISASTER ARTIST"

  • OH!! WOW!!

  • THAT'S INCREDIBLE!!

  • HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS??

  • You need to see the trailer for "The Disaster Artist", it's about Tommy Wiseau. But if you've already seen it, then ignore this.

  • Oh..ahahahah

  • Stop making fucking stupid videos and do a review on the Disaster arti-

  • Shut the f.. up! Okay, fine. I'll make a review.

  • That's right, I'm a movie critic now.

  • The Disaster Artist is a movie I never thought would exist.

  • Similar to the other movie review I made: BLAME.

  • A movie I never thought would exist either!

  • This is my niche! I have finally found it!

  • I review movies that I never thought would exist.

  • The Disaster Artist is a movie about a movie about a book about a movie about a book ... about -

  • Now, If you have seen The Room, you know exactly what I am talking about

  • The Disaster Artist is based on the movie The Room

  • I made a movie (review) about The Room

  • I really recommend checking it out

  • And I explain why I love The Room so much

  • It's a movie that is HILARIOUSLY BAD

  • and

  • unlike a lot of bad movies

  • I've talked about a lot of bad movies before on my channel

  • This is like when Luke Skywalker

  • Took off the mask of Darth Vader

  • Why did he need that anyway by the way -ok great- What is that thing?

  • The Room is [the] kind of bad movie I can re-watch

  • Infinite amount of times

  • I never get sick of it

  • I love showing it to people.

  • I love sharing information about the movie

  • because the more you know about The Room, the more intrigued you get by it.

  • So when the book came out,

  • from one of the guys that was in The Room

  • explaining how The Room was made,

  • called The Disaster Artist by Greg Sestero

  • Reading that, I just got a new-found love for the film.

  • It's actually a very, very interesting story, about

  • unlikely friendship, and

  • Two people, finding success in failure.

  • It's a very touching story,

  • which you wouldn't expect.

  • Tommy and Greg are actually very close friends.

  • Which, when you watch The Room, you would never have guessed.

  • I mean, they're complete opposites.

  • You have Tommy, who is really old.

  • Uh, sorry Tommy, if you're listening

  • He's clearly not American, but he wants to be.

  • But he's also very rich

  • for reasons we never find out.

  • And then you have Greg, who is young, American,

  • and doesn't have any money. But

  • what draws these two characters together, or people together

  • because this is a true story -

  • is them wanting to make it in Hollywood.

  • Wanting to become actors.

  • And the movie shows that.

  • It starts off with Greg seeing Tommy at a

  • drama class, and

  • Greg is just so intrigued by Tommy.

  • How he is so fearless in his acting

  • He's not very good, but he's so

  • ...there's something that draws him in about him.

  • They become friends, and

  • despite their differences, they decide to move to LA together.

  • And try and make it in Hollywood.

  • And the book and the movie pretty much pens out the same way here.

  • I read the book about two years ago, so

  • my memory is a little fuzzy on the whole thing.

  • Tommy doesn't find any success in LA, he's

  • He's not a good actor. Greg finds

  • some success, but nothing really too overwhelming.

  • and I think they are both in the time where they just wanna give up

  • on their dream that they had together. But then they,

  • Tommy comes up with the idea:

  • I'm just gonna make my own movie, and you're gonna be in it.

  • And so, The Room was born.

  • And here's where the book and the movie really sets apart

  • as far as I remember:

  • in the movie it's very Hollywood.

  • where, "Oh, we're gonna make a movie and it's gonna be great!"

  • "Everyone's gonna be super happy!"

  • "Yes of course I wanna be a part of it!"

  • When in reality, described in the book, Greg didn't wanna be a part of the movie at all.

  • He actually just accepted to be part as a line producer

  • of the film, so

  • he wasn't even gonna act in the movie.

  • But he would be a stand-in for the actor

  • for his role

  • as Mark

  • Basically, he would just stand in the frame of the camera, so

  • the camera knows where he will be.

  • But Tommy wanted Greg to be in the movie.

  • The movie is about them, after all. It's

  • a reflection of their friendship.

  • Like I said, you would never have guessed it, but

  • it is the truth.

  • So, Tommy basically would just slowly start replacing in Greg more and more

  • and , to the point where he would just take over

  • and start acting in the film. Without even telling the original actor. Which is

  • Which is hilarious and horrible at the same time.

  • And there's a lot of bad stuff like that, that isn't in the film.

  • There's a lot of stuff that maybe you don't wanna really tell...

  • that's left out

  • How they constantly changed crew while making the film.

  • Arguing with actors during the film,

  • refusing to pay people during the film.

  • These are the sorts of things that were left out of the movie.

  • I understand why they did, because it would've been too long,

  • too convoluted,

  • and too complicated.

  • But I think they did a good job at tying it all together

  • they tell the story about their friendship

  • and the making of the movie. And I think

  • that was the main point.

  • I do think there was some miscasting in the film, it seemed like

  • they were all just friends that wanted to make this movie

  • in my opinion. Which I understand,

  • it's like "Oh you're making a movie about The Room? I love The Room! You have to put me in it, James!"

  • But other than that, it was...I couldn't have asked for more.

  • I thought it was extremely entertaining.

  • I was laughing througout the whole thing.

  • There was a lot of inside jokes.

  • Which not as many people were laughing at.

  • But at the same time, I realized while watching it

  • You don't even have to have seen The Room to enjoy The Disaster Artist.

  • I think that's a really, a feat of its own.

  • James Franco renders Tommy Wiseau in such a hilarious, relatable and endearing way

  • you can tell that James was really invested in Tommy's character.

  • I watched an interview with Seth Rogen

  • where he explains it, which I thought was really nice.

  • It was incredibly personal to him, in a weird way

  • and he felt this weird kinship with Tommy Wiseau

  • who's the guy in the movie

  • so we really wanted to just support him.

  • Someone makes a piece of art,

  • hoping it's received one way,

  • it is actually received for the exact opposite reasons

  • that you hoped it would

  • but the result is actually the same.

  • You become famous, people like you.

  • You have movie stars making movies about you.

  • You make money.

  • You get, uh, you're in profit -

  • Yeah, you're getting paid.

  • And Franco has someone who has done a lot of weird art shit

  • throughout his life.

  • Constantly being misunderstood,

  • misinterpreted

  • people thinking that the shit he thought was great was stupid

  • and vice versa.

  • It was incredibly personal to him.

  • In a weird way. And he felt this weird kinship with Tommy Wiseau, who's

  • who's the guy in the movie.

  • You can truly tell that James was deeply invested in Tommy's character.

  • Watching the teaser trailer for this film, I

  • got kind of annoyed, because they had already changed so much, they

  • skipped bits that were hilarious

  • so I was really worried about this film.

  • I did not hit her, it's not true.

  • It's bullshit.

  • I did not hit her, I did not.

  • Oh, hi, Mark.

  • Take 67.

  • Action.

  • I hit her! No!

  • Do you wanna change the line?

  • You're doing great, man.

  • I did not hit her, it's not true, it's bullshit, I did not hit her, I did not.

  • Oh, hi Mark.

  • In this scene, at the end, Tommy would never look up, he would

  • always just forget what he was doing

  • and forget that he actually needs to look at the person

  • if he sees someone. Oh, hi Mark.

  • So apparently, what they did was

  • everyone would just wave at Tommy

  • when he was finishing the scene

  • so that he would look up.

  • And then he would just look up and say "Oh, hi, Mark."

  • And that's how they finally got the shot.

  • He'd also hit his head multiple times

  • while going out of that little box.

  • So, it's almost like the movie skipped out on a lot of hilarious stuff

  • in my opinion.

  • And I remember reading about this

  • in the book and it was just so funny

  • to re-live that horrible, horrible scene.

  • And knowing what went down

  • for it to happen.

  • I think the main difference between the movie and the book is that

  • the book ends right before the premiere. The movie starts.

  • But the movie ends

  • a bit after, with a nice happy ending.

  • I'm not sure if the ending was actually that happy.

  • I think anyone that was involved in the project of The Room

  • probably went through a really rough time.

  • I think it affected a lot of peoples' lives really negatively

  • watching interviews from a lot of the actors involved

  • with their careers and their confidence being destroyed

  • for everyone. Tommy, for Greg, for all the other actors as well

  • and the people making the movie not being credited properly.

  • And I don't think the ending of the book was a happy ending.

  • But I think, now

  • that the movie is out

  • and you have people loving The Room

  • you have people so dedicated to it.

  • People like me who just find so much joy in it.

  • It's been re-made by Hollywood superstars into a film. And it's a great story.

  • It's an amazing story, and I really hope, so, even

  • though they completely changed the ending

  • it makes sense now.

  • I think, and I really hope, that everyone involved in The Room

  • with this film coming out, The Disaster Artist, find

  • a closure, insane story of making The Room.

  • I think, I really hope it ends in a positive way for everyone involved

  • And it seems like it. It seems like Tommy has found a lot of joy

  • in all this attention, and

  • Greg as well, and

  • it's a life-changing thing to be a part of

  • and it was nice seeing it sort of being wrapped up.

  • Maybe I'm reading into it a bit too much, I don't know.

  • You can still really very much enjoy the book,

  • it goes way and beyond on details.

  • and it's hilarious.

  • It's good details, that I actually really recommend.

  • There's also an audiobook version of the book.

  • Which I also really recommend, because Greg reads out all the lines.

  • And he does Tommy Wiseau's voice so great

  • And it really shows that he's actually not a bad actor.

  • The movie doesn't replace the book and the book doesn't replace the movie.

  • I think you can enjoy them both individually.

  • It's not like it spoils anything is what I'm saying.

  • I'm gonna give the movie an 8.5

  • it was hilarious, I would love to see it again.

  • Some changes that I kinda disagreed with, but over all, very satisfying, I really enjoyed it.
