About 4 years ago my good friend David [Editor’s Note: Hi!] invited me to watch a movie called The Room with a group of people. Directed by Tommy Wiseau, this black comedy/ dramatic romance was the worst film I had ever seen. The poor use of stock footage, stale yet over dramatic acting, poor sound quality, and an accent that can only be described as alien.
