“The Room” Is The Worst Masterpiece Ever Made

    How do bad movies become popular and gain a community of supporters? Why do a lot of people like to watch them?

    Well this video, by YouTube channel Vox, breaks down the very reasons why people enjoy bad movies. And it does this by closely examining the cult classic, “The Room”. Known as “one of the worst movies ever made”, it has a surprisingly huge fan base.

    Thing is, indie filmmaking also presents an opportunity for excellence in craft while also telling a story that’s new and different.

    And what about the question at the end? The Room to me shatters the distinction between good and bad… But I can’t say it’s bad because it’s so watchable. It’s so fun. It’s brought me so much joy. How can something that’s bad do those things for me?” This begs the question, what makes a movie good or bad? What do you think? Are terrible movies which enter the popular movies section justified?
