Howdy! One of my favorite things now is collecting movies. I am one of those people that always prefer to have the tangible object. I don’t do Ebooks or movie downloads, give me the hard copy of the book or DVD any day! And, because of that, both my movie and book collection are subject to change all the time. Target has a wonderful selection of cheap movies, and I just couldn’t resist snagging these five flicks for under forty bucks seen below:
- Bad Teacher
- Kill Bill 1 & 2
- The Disaster Artist
- Saw 7 Movie Collection
I have to say, I’m pretty excited about the movies that I added to my collection. And, I kind of splurged a little! Because, *gasp*, I bought The Disaster Artist even though it was ten dollars! I am a fanatic of all things The Room, so this purchase was absolutely necessary. I also got the Saw and Kill Bill collections for seven fifty instead of my normal five dollars, but they were too good not to pass up. The Saw movies are some of my favorites and I am a huge Kill Bill fan, so they were a definite must.
On the cheaper end of things, both Annabelle and Bad Teacher were five dollars, which made for an easy decision on whether to purchase them or not. Annabelle will be perfect with the spooky month of October fast approaching. And, Bad Teacher will be a nice change of pace from all of the scary movies. This was definitely a treat yoself haul, but talk about value – twelve movies for thirty five bucks!
What is something that you like to collect? What are your favorite scary movies for Halloween? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Helloooo everyone and welcome to the conclusion of my Holiday Haul, once again compliments of my sister. Kristen was truly the Christmas MVP this year so cue the applause for that wonderful woman! The Room is easily my favorite bad movie ever and it brings me so much joy introducing it to other people. It took Kristen a long time to accept The Room for the hilarity that it is, but her life changed for the better when she finally did.
We recently enjoyed a sister date night to see The Disaster Artist and were in stitches the entire time. Our next “The Room” related festivities include going to the midnight showing of it in Cleveland that happens monthly at an indie theater. I CAN’T WAIT! For Christmas, Kristen gifted me with two of the following prezzies that Tommy Wiseau would be proud of:
Seen above is a shirt featuring the infamous tagline of “You’re tearing me apart, Lisa” with Tommy Wiseau in a moment of frustrated passion. There is also a homemade card that she ordered from the flower shop “Hi, doggy” scene. If that isn’t prezzie perfect, then I genuinely don’t know what is. Kristen and I were absolutely dying when I opened this gift and I am so excited to finally own some merchandise from The Room!
This Holiday Haul was incredibly successful and I had an amazing time celebrating Christmas with my family. The company, food, and tom foolery was all as good as it can get, and it was definitely one of my favorite Christmases yet.
So there you have it, my Holiday Haul Finale: The Room Edition! Who else is a fan of the infamously bad flick, The Room? What is your favorite cult film? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
I have absolutely NO shame in admitting that The Room is one of my favorite movies ever. I find it absolutely hilarious, no matter if I’m sober or drunk. One of my favorite things to do with my friends who are fans of the movie, is to go see it at the Cedar Lee theatre in Cleveland. (They don’t have an official website, but you can view their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/cedarleetheatre make sure you give it a like!!) This theatre is known for playing strictly Indie and foreign films. Like any local theatre they have live performances during The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and most importantly on the second Saturday of each month, they play a midnight showing of The Room. It only costs five dollars for your ticket and a night of well rounded frivolity. Nothing pleases me more than being in a theatre full of The Room enthusiasts who basically quote the entire movie word for word. There’s quite a few tried and true traditions that occur throughout the movie, so allow me to give you the proper etiquette if you ever find yourself at a midnight showing at the Cedar Lee! Make sure you bring your plastic spoons! 🙂
- Yell “the door is ajar” every time a character leaves the door open when entering Johnny and Lisa’s apartment. The yelling ends when the door is finally shut.
- Break into applause during the famous “oh hi, doggy” scene.
- Make “om nom nom” noises every time Lisa and Mark eat each others faces.
- When Lisa is seducing Mark and he questions “the candles, the music, the sexy dress” the audience questions back “WHAT CANDLES? WHAT MUSIC? WHAT SEXY DRESS?”
- Repeat back “best friend” every time someone mentions that Johnny is Mark’s best friend.
- Every time the panorama of the Full House neighborhood appears, sing the theme song to Full House.
- Whenever cars are seen traveling across the Golden Gate Bridge cheer them on before the scene changes.
- Scream “you are tearing me apart Lisa” at the top of your lungs.
- Scream “I did not hit her, it’s not true, it’s BULLSHIT, I did not hit her, I did nahhhhhht. Oh hi, Mark.”
- Throw plastic spoons at the screen every time Johnny and Lisa’s spoon themed art work in the apartment is seen.
- Slow clap to all of the slow jam songs played during sex scenes.
- Add any comments you’d like during the movie. My personal favorite is yelling “PILLOW FIGHT” when Johnny, Lisa, and Denny are having one at the beginning of the movie.
Any other traditions that occur during the movie are easy to pick up on and it’s great fun to start your own as well! If you’re in the mood to get your drink on while watching The Room, my friends and I created a drinking game just for that occasion! I recommend getting one of the larger canned alcoholic drinks and taking a sip each time a drink worthy instance occurs. Here are the rules for when to drink during The Room:
- Every time a football is thrown
- Whenever a panoramic shot of San Francisco is seen
- Every time someone mentions what a great guy Johnny is
- Whenever Lisa says that she doesn’t love Johnny anymore
- Whenever Lisa says that she’s in love with Mark
- Whenever someone enters the apartment but leaves minutes later
- Chug on “You are tearing me apart Lisa”
- Chug during any “oh hi” scene
- Chug during Johnny’s suicide scene if your drink hasn’t been completed by then
What are some of the traditions that occur at the theatres you go to that screen The Room? What are some things that could be added on to the drinking game seen above? If you have any suggestions, leave me a comment and let’s chat! And make sure you check back in with me tonight for my review of the new episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show! Happy Hump Day! -Sarah
