Blu-ray Review: The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Brutal as Hell
23 October 2010
Excerpt: Its time to do the Time Warp again! …again. For its 35th anniversary, one of the longest running movies in theater history gets a shiny new Blu-ray release, just in time for all the annual Halloween screenings. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is back! For the uninitiated, allow me to take you, if I may, on a strange journey. The film follows the adventures of Brad Majors and Janet Weiss (Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon) as they attempt to escape the clutches of Dr.
Excerpt: Fasten your garter belt and come up to the lab and see what's on the slab! It's "The Rocky Horror Picture Show Special Edition", a screamingly funny, sinfully twisted salute to sci-fi, horror, B-movies and rock music, all rolled into one deliciously decadent morsel. And now there's even more to make you shiver with antici...pation: two additional musical numbers, "Once In A While" and "Superheroes", never seen theatrically or available on video!
Excerpt: The Movie Time was, The Rocky Horror Picture Show needed to be seen in the theater. Not upon its initial release certainly, when it bombed terribly, and rightly so. I mean, there are some good songs and inspired performances, but big-screen musicals were becoming a tough sell by 1975, and adaptations of stage works are always difficult to handle. Add to this twin challenge an apparently modest budget and the results on display are downright campy.
Conclusion: I need say no more. If you're a Rocky Horror fan, this Blu-ray—with it's excellent audio/video presentation and generous array of extras—is an unmitigated must-own release. And for all you "virgins" out there, what are you waiting for? You owe it to yourself to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show at least one—if only to say that you have. Highly recommended! Did you find this review helpful?
Conclusion: In chiusura 5 scene musicali tagliate, 11 outtakes, titoli di coda alternativi, 2 trailer cinematografici, 1 galleria di materiale pubblicitario e 1 galleria dei manifesti. A malincuore dobbiamo però segnalare che tutti i video non hanno sottotitoli (neanche in inglese). Un brutto neo per un'edizione così ricca di extra.
