Lucas Tribble and Raza Waqif give their thoughts on The Disaster Artist!
Synopsis- When Greg Sestero, an aspiring film actor, meets the weird and mysterious Tommy Wiseau in an acting class, they form a unique friendship and travel to Hollywood to make their dreams come true.
Lucas Tribble’s thoughts- I personally do not remember laughing so much for a movie at the theater in a long time then when I went to see this movie. James Franco, comedy or not, should get a nomination for his spot-on petrel of Tommy Wiseau and honestly, he was the perfect choice to play him. I also love the attention to detail in this movie, about 30 minutes of “The Room” was recreated by the actors in “The Disaster Artist”. One complaint, I wish we could have seen the editing process sequence in this movie. I highly recommend people actually watching “The Room’ before going to see this movie due to the fact that you will most likely get more laughs if you have seen the movie it is based on. I give it a 7.5 out of 10.
Raza Waquif’s thoughts
Overall pacing is well balanced, ramping up and toning down exactly when it needs to. Acting is the strongest point very, very solid performances all around, specifically James Franco (NO ONE else could have done it better). Both fans of The Room and those who haven’t heard of it at all can thoroughly enjoy this film. Engaging to the point to where you hold your breath in anticipation during moments that the onscreen characters do, almost as if you were on the set itself. Quite a few celebrity cameos, but you do what you gotta do to sell a film. Ultimately, whether you’re a fan or not, this movie is well worth your time and money. Strong eight, light nine outta ten.
