    I don't know if anyone else caught it or not but, Adult Swim aired the cinematic classic "The Room" late last night/this morning twice. What really made this for me was the censorship they did. During the sex scenes, Lisa has small black boxes over her boobies when she took up most of the frame. When Tommy was in the shot, they blacked out 3/4s of the screen! That and occasionaly it would show at the bottom of the screen, DO NOT DUPLICATE COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL!

    Needless to say this and the movie had me roflmao. I have wanted to see this for awhile now and now that I did, I have to see it uncut. And incase you don't now what I'm talking about, let me direct you here-

    I bought it off Amazon immediately after watching it through Netflix. I've now watched it 6-8 times, and I'm still not tired of it. I love showing it to people for the first time, because no matter how much you explain it to them, they're never prepared for it.

    This is probably what I will have to do as well. I've looked in Best Buys, FYEs, Suncoast Pictures...es and no luck.

    Saw it a couple of weeks ago. The first 1/3 is one of the funniest things I've seen in ages. Whether or not it was supposed to be!...

    Every time I see this flick mentioned it makes me think about The Lost Room. Man what a great show.

    I think Tommy Wiseau deliberatley made the film bad so it could get so good.

    I love this movie so much, I probably quote/paraphrase it the most, usually "YOU ARE TEARING ME APART (insert person I'm talking to here)!"

    Not a chance. The dude is completely crazy and lives in his own world. He definitely thinks it is a good movie, and really has fooled himself into thinking that all the love people have for it is because it is good, and not a hilarious piece of crap.


    And yeah, "The Room" flash game is amazing. I love that you get to experience everything from Johnny's point of view.
