“The Room” (2003) “Birdemic” (2010)

Well, we finally broke the mold and found two movies that we are not entirely fond of. Yes, We went hard into both Birdemic and The Room but we did try hard to dig deep and find a hidden sense of appreciation for the effort. Yes. effort. Whether technically proficient or not, No matter how clumsy the dialogue is or how awful the FX are, they are watchable… but only in the case of “three’s a crowd.” — warning, do not watch these kind of films on your own. It can damage your essence and put a boot to the balls of your respect for life. “I put Andy through his paces with these two” Stephen says, “But I think it will make him stronger. Enough to one day handle the likes of Spice World, should we ever get him restrained and locked in a room long enough to get through it.”
