Did you watch it?
Did you like it?
What do you think?
I hear about it, but never motivated enough to watch it.
I watched it. Not too bad. It didn't seem too far off the mark from the original ( and I've seen it well over 200 times). However-----nobody but nobody but nobody will ever top Tim Curry's completely (but brilliant) over the top portrayal of Dr. Frank. He gave the character that Joan Collins/Mick Jagger thing that only someone of his caliber could attempt and get away with.
I watched it. When I see updated versions of favorites like this, I have to act like the original doesn't exist so I can experience what is in front of me with an unbiased eye. Same thing with Willy Wonka... I thought last nights show was really good.
I watched it. It would have probably been better if I had not seen the original numerous times. A few parts, IMO, were better in the remake, but a lot of it was a poor imitation, or tribute, of the original. The new Riff Raff, while he is a very good singer, cannot touch Richard O'brien's vocal performance. Again, IMO.
Laverne Cox was trying too much to sound like Tim & he's British, while she clearly isn't, LOL!
It was especially apparent when asking if Brad had any tattoos.
All in, not so bad, most of the cast was spot on, but Laverne,,,
Her performance got better toward the end, but the stand-outs for me were Magenta & Riff Raff.
RIFF Raff plays a guitar in this one, how punny!
Coincidentally, Tim is from Cheshire, and I think he has a Cheshire cat grin:
I saw it...it was alright.
I did have to learn a few of the tunes for this gig and the experience is now what I associate Rocky Horror with.
The art of standing quietly and unobtrusively
My wife and I both hated it. It looked like a high school production with a big budget.
Everyone (except Lavern Cox) was just trying too hard to be "campy". What made the original work was they pretty much played it straight. And, yes, I can prove that:
Also some horrible casting.
I thought most of the actors copied the original performances pretty well = camp!
even if the original campiness was unintentional
The whole reason the audience participation became a thing was due to the sheer kitsch of it all.
