Oh, and the plot revolves around gangs fighting each other in the near CYPERPUNKTASTIC future with DDR. Enjoy.
Downloaded this a few weeks ago but haven't watched it yet. It's really terrible but I think it's far too self aware to be the next The Room.
Not to mention more competently shot.
Is...this isn't recent, is it?

The FP is on Netflix now. It's hilarious. The best parody movie I've seen in years and better than what mainstream Hollywood has produced in a long time. Imagine every cheap cliche from every schlocky teen drama from the past thirty years mashed into the most ridiculous premise.

Pretty sure this is tongue-in-cheek, ROUS.
Funny the comparison to The Room because I've spent a lot of time trying to convince myself that The Room was the most brilliant parody of bad film ideas ever. But I can't let go of what is likely the truth that it just is that (Occam's razor), a bad BAD movie.
So when I first saw this, months ago, I thought it suffered from the same issue: parody or just bad? I'm of the mind that this really is completely amazing parody. Has to be with all of the crazy elements it takes on. Or is it likely these days that the only way to get "inside attention" to your film, is to make something so incredibly bad that people cannot stop watching or talking about it. Thank you Ed Wood for that.

Whatever else you might think of it, I would say that it's pretty safe to assume that it is parody.
Look at the past work put out by the brothers that made this. They made a short together called 'The Day the Dead Weren't Dead'.
Brandon Trost worked as cinematographer on Crank and MacGruber.
Jason Trost actually goes by JTro and seems to always wear that eyepatch.
Personally, the fact that it was parody made me like it a lot less. Seemed to me that the intent was less to make fun of bad movie cliches and more aimed at trying to replicate something like The Room. It's a lot less interesting to me when it's deliberate.
This movie is really just one big inside joke about where these two guys grew up, and a lot of the dialog was apparently shit that people actually said when they went to high school. They shot it all on their dads property in Frazier Park.

This is a joke. Anyone who doesn't realize this within the first 15 seconds should have themselves checked for retardation.
Birdemic has already claimed the title of the next The Room. We are now searching for the next Birdemic.
Seriously you need to check out Birdemic on Netflix Instant. It's even WORSE than The Room. Sound breaks with every new shot like the movies we made with a camcorder as kids.
The Rifftrax for it is also hilarious, but I'd watch at least half of it without it to get the "pure" experience.
They're making a sequel but it will probably suck in a bad way. Unintentional hilarity never survives the transition to self awareness.
I have to say that Birdemic can't touch The Room. Birdemic made me want to die, The Room taught me what it means to live.
What good is living if global warming kills you?

I agree, the Room was far more meaningful than Birdemic. The special effects, bad acting, and long environmental dialogue sections just don't add up to the pure condensed goofiness of T. Wiseau. Birdemic also makes a lot more sense if you think that an Asian guy made it. Watch it again keeping that in mind and count the stereotypes.
