Top 5 Best Worst Movies / The Disaster Artist / The Shape of Water

It’s not easy to make a good movie - never mind a great one. But it may be even harder to make a truly terrible movie. 2003’s "The Room" is one such terrible movie that is so bad that it's become legend - and a favorite at midnight movie screenings. It's also the subject of the new James Franco-directed (and starring) film THE DISASTER ARTIST, which tells the story of how "The Room" came to be. This week, reviews of "The Disaster Artist" and THE SHAPE OF WATER, a wondrous new Cold War-era fairy tale from Guillermo del Toro. Plus the Top 5 Best Worst Movies with Rob Hill, the author of "The Bad Movie Bible."
