The Disaster Artist

Rated Greg’s Top 5 James Franco Movies

  1. Spring Breakers
  2. This is the End
  3. Rise of the Planet of the Apes
  4. Pineapple Express
  5. Palo Alto

It’s hard for a film to be great with a protagonist as unlikeable as Tommy Wiseau. On an asshole scale the director of The Room, widely regarded as the worst movie of all time, ranks somewhere between people that list “public figure” on their Instagram and people that enter an elevator before you can exit.  James Franco does an amazing job portraying Wiseau, so much so that you barely recognize it’s him, but the weirdo director that he plays is so damn hard to root for.  That was my main takeaway from The Disaster Artist. It has some entertaining moments but nothing you need to rush to the theater for.  More of an On Demand rental.  It’s just not as good as the other James Franco/Seth Rogen collabs like Pineapple Express and This is the End. Grade: B-
