The Disaster Artist - Written Movie Review


Oh hi Film Phreeks subscribers! Eddie here and tonight I'm reviewing the 2017 Biography/ Drama, The Disaster Artist directed by James Franco and stars James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and Josh Hutcherson. The film is based on the true story and book of the same name written by Greg Sestero. When Greg Sestero (Dave Franco), an aspiring actor, meets the weird and mysterious Tommy Wiseau in an acting class for an upcoming play, both form a unique friendship and travel to Hollywood to make their dreams come true. When all fails, they turn to make their own film called The Room. If any of you are not familiar with The Room, it was a movie made back in 2003 by a guy named Tommy Wiseau and his friend Greg Sestero. The Room is dubbed "the best/worst movie of all-time" and grew quite a cult following as the years went by. I didn't know that film existed until my buddy showed me clips one night back in 2015. Soon after, I watched someone else do a review of it and that's when I decided to watch the whole film. I must say, it's a pretty bad movie but it's so funny and catchy. I find myself at times quoting Tommy's lines from The Room quite often than I should be. Its unintentionally hilarious and if you haven't seen it, it's a must watch at least once. With The Disasters Artist , I absolutely enjoyed this film. James Franco gives an Oscar-worthy performance and I felt like he nailed the Tommy Wiseau part perfectly. Dave Franco played Greg perfectly and I thought Josh Hutcherson playing the actor who plays Denny was absolutely hilarious. I don't want to leave out the rest of the cast performances as they all did a phenomenal job. James Franco also directed the film, which I thought he did a outstanding job. ' This was an absolutely hilarious movie. I was so excited when I saw James Franco and the cast reenact all the classic scenes from The Room. If I had any flaws to mention, I was a little lost with the timeline in the beginning of the film because they were time jumping way too fast when Tommy and Greg first meet. I also noticed a little blooper part where Tommy was trying out for a part in a movie and I believe they were in 1999 in this scene but they had a poster of Thirteen Ghosts, which didn't come out until 2001. I could be wrong and they could have been in 2001 when they did that scene, but the lack of telling what year they were in threw me off. Other than that, I had a great time watching this film and I highly recommend it. I would also like to recommend The Room. I'm going to give The Disaster Artist a 9/10. What were your thoughts on this film? Leave me a comment below and I'll see you in my next review.
