Matthew Watches The Room 16: Lisa Is Not Subtle, Is Also Tearing Johnny Apart

July 2, 2014 by


Did you forget this movie takes place in San Francisco? If so, Tommy Wiseau included yet another shot that will help you remember! Lisa and Michelle are lounging about in the middle of the day drinking wine, because this is what women typically do during the day. Michelle asks Lisa how Johnny is, because this […]

Matthew Watches The Room 15: Denny’s In Love With Lisa Too, Why Not

June 25, 2014 by


So this week’s scene is actually the second half of the last one. As soon as Mark left I was all, “Hooray! I’m done! THANK GOD.” And then this week I resumed the video and realized I didn’t actually finish the scene. Whoops. The scene actually enters Roof of Feelings Part 2: Roof Feelings Boogaloo […]

Matthew Watches The Room 14: Oh Hi, Mark

June 11, 2014 by


Woo! It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? But fear not! We’re back watching The Room and we return to a fantastic scene. Johnny: I did not hit her! It’s not true! It’s bullshit! I did not hit her! (Throws plastic water bottle angrily in a sort of nonplussed way.) I did not. (The briefest […]

Matthew Watches The Room 13: Lisa Misses Mark, Mark Doesn’t Know Why

May 7, 2014 by


We have a short, transitional scene in The Room this week. Lisa calls Mark, who makes this face for the entire scene. The conversation does not get off to a great start, but not for the reason you might expect! Maybe. Do you even expect things anymore at this point in The Room? Is that […]

Matthew Watches The Room #12: Denny Owes A Drug Dealer Money, Apparently

April 23, 2014 by


Much like how the previous scene began with two never-before-seen characters with an unexplained relationship to the plot, this week’s scene also begins with a never-before-seen character with a previously unexplained relationship to the plot. It is also one of The Room‘s more infamous moments of suddenly introducing something that has nothing to do with […]

Matthew Watches The Room #11: Two Characters We’ve Never Seen Before Have Oral Sex In Johnny’s Apartment

April 16, 2014 by


In case you wondered if Tommy Wiseau adding three separate Claudette subplots in the last scene that don’t actually have anything to do with the plot was going to be a regular kind of thing, the next scene begins with two characters we’ve never seen before sneaking into Johnny’s apartment. We’re given no clues who […]

Matthew Watches The Room #10: Claudette Won’t Shut Up About New Subplots

April 9, 2014 by


After a quick establishing shot, in case you forgot this movie takes place in San Francisco- We encounter a scene where Lisa and Claudette are discussing Johnny’s birthday party. You can tell because Lisa has pen and paper on her lap, and because she is very helpfully saying exactly what she’s doing: Lisa: I’m organizing […]

Matthew Watches The Room #9: Sex Scene 3 Is The Same Footage As Sex Scene 1

March 26, 2014 by


Remember the first sex scene in The Room? I mean, how could you not? It only happened eighteen minutes ago. Well, after their crazy drunken night downing a mixed drink of  – sigh – scotch and vodka, Johnny and Lisa go have the movie’s third sex scene. “Whoa, whoa, whoa.” You might say. “Hold your […]

Matthew Watches The Room #8: Scotchka

March 19, 2014 by


After a transition where we see Johnny pull into his driveway, park the car, and also get to see a bus go by (For… development? Mise-en-scène!), Johnny enters his home where Lisa is waiting. An ominous soundtrack plays, as Johnny even more ominously greets Lisa with another “Hi, babe.” He then gives her the dozen […]

Matthew Watches The Room #7: Denny Stops By To See If Johnny Is Home, But He Isn’t

March 5, 2014 by


In this scene, Denny stops by to see if Johnny is home, but he isn’t. I know it’s hard to handle a short and completely unnecessary scene after the most perfect short and completely unnecessary scene of all time, but let’s struggle through this minute of The Room (as you do any minute of The […]
