The primary inept project that inexplicably came to fruition? A Hipster magazine called the AV Club.

The Room wins because it was trying to be a serious, good movie. The people who made Birdemic knew they were making shiat.

For at least a year back in 2005 or so there was a billboard for The Room on La Brea near the heart of Hollywood...

...but we get a lot of weirdo self-promoters around here with more money than talent, so this schlocky billboard was just another oddity. I never heard anything about it, had no idea it had grown into a cult film. Years later I was on a trip to New Zealand to screen a film at a little independent theater, and I saw a poster for The Room in their lobby. Total WTF moment. So I ask the manager and she gives me the rundown on how they do one midnight screening per month, and the audience interacts with the film like it's Rocky Horror. For example, they bring plastic spoons with them, and when this painting of a spoon appears in the background throughout the film, the audience yells "spoon!" and they all throw plastic spoons at the screen. She also said their contract with the filmmaker was crazy -- had all of these requirements for how much they were required to promote it, and some other weird shiat.

It is funny to see this guy trying to call it a comedy now. It's like how the producers of the terrible "The Tourist" called it a "comedy" so it would get nominated in the comedies and musicals category for the Golden Globes.

How the fark do I get that off my computer?

there's this wonderful thing on the internet, and perhaps you've not heard of it.  it's called Google.  and on Google, you can look up answers to questions you may have.

All I know about computers is I turn them on and boobies come out.
