    The Disaster Artist

    ★★★

    It's entertaining, it's funny. I enjoyed it. Does absolutely no justice to the original book, or even the point of the book. The book shows you the inner workings of Tommy Wiseau's madhouse and dealing with the man himself, the way Greg Sestero experienced it- the movie is like the 1990s Disney animated movie version. It's a sanitized, watered-down, cute-ified version of the book. It's the Disney's Pochahontas version of the book. I guess James Franco really felt proud of…

    It just isn't as stupid as I wanted it to be! It's stupid and full of every cliche I expected (and wanted), I had a couple of laughs, don't get me wrong- but it just isn't stupid enough to be consistently entertaining.

    Not sure how many times I've rewatched this movie. Over time, it starts feeling like an old friend.

    It's one of the most overlooked comedies of the 1990s, despite being, in my opinion, one of the best. It's ruthlessly snappy and witty, brimming with mischievous sarcasm- and it has to be one of the most irresistibly quotable films of the decade. It's a film about miscommunication, effectively- but you find yourself getting anxiously engaged in the story once the stakes are really established as being as high as they are.

    Hilarious and timeless. Tenouttaten.
