The Greatest Cult Movie of All Time Gets the Star Treatment
8 November 2013
Excerpt: A flat tire and a wet night had brought Brad and Janet to a house that made both of them feel apprehensive and uneasy...but, if they were to reach their destination that night, they would have to take advantage of whatever help was offered... As a cinephile, it is a bit embarrassing to admit that The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a low budget cult musical, is my favorite movie, but no matter how great films I watch, none manage to thrill me, chill me, and fulfill me the way...
Summary: Oh my goodness! I love this movie so much! I love the originality and the subplots and the whole awesomeness of it! I would definitely recommend this movie to people that like creativity and actual art. You can't be judgemental if you're going to watch this movie. It's not "weird." It's original and brilliant and only ignorant people will see it as "weird" "odd" etc. Please, if you like creativity and GOOD movies(plus musicals) then you will like this movie.
Summary: Vulgarly camp rock opera and excuse for sixth formers and the sexually repressed to dress up in drag. I found it crude and ugly, but the songs are OK and Meatloaf gets chainsawed which is something I'd have liked to do on many an occasion...
Excerpt: The Movie Itself is brilliant (i dont like musicals apart from this and sweeney todd) the songs are catchy. the plot is there but only a little bit. its a fun rollercoaster ride and it has some great performances and some truly bad acting it good. the plot is basically a transvestite who has made a creation called rocky. The Video is amazing compared to the vhs i own or when its on ITV4. the blacks are amazing and there is no crushing. the colours are spot on.
Summary: This is one of a few reasons for this critic’s dislike for musicals. This flick had exaggerated acting, explicit sexual gyrations, painful singing and loud costumes. One of a few unbelievable scenes include a person on a wheel chair crashing thru a wall, a transvestite who makes love to a male and female, a machine that turns people to stone among others. It is ridiculous in most aspects and its humor just juvenile in most sequences.
Excerpt: the first time my mom told me her and my dad used to watch it in the drive thru i thought it was weird! but now i understand why it has such a big cult following.its nothing like you will ever see or hear again.tim curry is awesome as frankenfurter.the music is amazing throughout.if you put aside the fact they are transvestites you will really enjoy this film.now the bluray is just amazing.the picture is rich with color and clarity.there is never a moment you think its...
Summary: If you can get into the spirit of this over-the-top and campy musical, it's a fun ride. If you can't, you'll probably hate the corny humor and garish costumes. Actually, the music's quite good and Tim Curry's androgynous Dr. Frank N Furter is a standout performance.
