The Room

The Room isn't nominated for an Oscar this year, which makes sense since it came out in 2003, and because according to those who've seen it, it's one of the worst movies ever made. Naturally then, there is serious excitement that it is finally coming to NYC. The March 20th screening at Village East Cinema is sold out, but Lindsay says they're adding a second one on the same date at the same theater. Look for tickets to go on sale Tuesday.

Those who were nominated for Oscars include The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, Milk, The Reader, Slumdog Millionare and M.I.A. and Peter Gabriel. Who will win? Find out tonight on ABC.

"It would be a great honor," Mr. Rahman said with characteristic diffidence in a phone interview this week from Los Angeles, where he was preparing to perform at the ceremony. "It would help me to do bigger things."

Ask him what those bigger things might be, however, and he grows even quieter. Naming some Western directors he would like to work with, he sounds distracted, almost bored, as if the future is just too abstract to worry about.

"Baz Luhrmann," he said. A beat, then: "Ridley Scott. I'm a big fan of Ridley." [NY TIMES]

The more independent Spirit Awards were yesterday. The Wrestler did very well. So did Milk.

"synecdoche, new york" should've been the single nomination for best movie over all that other horseshit. fuck the oscars, fuck brad pitt, fuck the media, fuck faggots, fuck nazis, and fuck india.

The room is truly an incredibly bad movie. It's amazing. I HIGHLY recommend seeing this movie. With a crowd is better.

what? I went to buy tickets today and it says it's already sold out for both shows?

that's crazy... I wanted to get tickets too. Looks like they are both sold out.

Oh... and I have to agree with 10:29... "Rachel Getting Married" is the worst movie ever created.
