Its been a while since FOX released “The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again.” And I’ve had the time to sit and watch it. Now, I’ve had some minor bumps in life recently, and I wanted to go into watching this with no preconceived notions. It was a “turn off the brain and just enjoy it” moment. Well, disappointment hit early on in the movie. But I kept watching. There were some things I actually liked, and most I didn’t… it just didn’t compare to the original. Once someone told me that it was a tribute, it was a little less disappointing.
I must say – growing up watching Tim Curry as Frank-N-Furter, Laverne Cox had some pretty big shoes to fill, and well I think she did an AMAZING job. The only thing I didn’t like about her entrance is this terrible boom crane thing… but her costume was pretty bad ass.
So one of the other good things I discovered was this blue mohawked ginger – I found him strangely hot and wanted to see more more more…
Now for Rocky… Staz Nair was a great choice… but the gold lame board shorts… that’s not Rocky. Peter Hinwood had set the bar on that one. But Staz was most definitely a great choice to play the creation.
The costumes for Riff Raff and Magenta at the end, I did enjoy these more than the original costumes… again, the costumes for the tribute were great and brought the film into a new era.
