Just watched the Glee performance of The Time Warp.
The only things good about it were Tina as Columbia and Kurt as Riff. Honestly, if anyone was stupid enough to remake Rocky Horror, they should hopefully have the least bit of brain capacity to cast him.
otherwise, it made me a bit angry. Anyone that's a hardcore "gleek" (other than maybe a couple of people) that I know don't seem to realize that Rocky Horror is a classic in the name of cult followings. It should never be redone in its entirety, and certainly, they shouldn't just throw the cast together willy-nilly. I like that they're sort of bringing it back, but if the movie was redone, it would either ruin everything or completely bomb. People compare this sort of thing to Star Trek, but it's NOT the same. Rocky Horror was awful ON PURPOSE, so that you could fall in love with its flaws. It is never meant to be retouched because it's bad, because that's the whole concept: it's a parody of musicals, sci-fi B-movies, and horror flicks. It's not meant to be serious at all, and is fine the way it is.
I also cringe to think of the "new wave" of RHPS "fans" a-coming...
Quoting quotes for truth!
I didn't like any of the casting really. Magenta was just plain awful! It was either overly obvious or just weird and not well chosen. I know it's good for more people to see the original that might not otherwise... but I dislike a lot of those people It's the same when people cover songs. Folks that are hardcore into the new band accept that as the best and just diss the old one.
I can't wait to see RHPS next week even more now. Remind me, must put together costume. Ok, off topic...
[/not well thought out rant at this point in the day]
RHPS is playing at the theater down the street from me, but i dont get to see it because we have to save money for our move...but anyways, i think glee is a horrible show and shouldnt try doing any of the songs because they ruin everything they touch
I only thought Kurt sang it remotely well. Chris Colfer is my favorite on the show, because he's got the best story line, and he's fucking talented. Plus, he's fabulous!
Oh my god, I get so angry at these new fans. They're all like OHHHEMMMGEEEE I LUV ROKKY HORRER ITS SO G00D BUT FRANKLIN FURTER SHUD B A CHIK LOLOLOL IM HIM
*gag**gag**GAG* I can't deal. I see it so much on my news feed on facebook now, and it's really irritating. I am indeed glad that MTV cut away from the idea of a remake (I was part of the petition, long ago, and actually got an email from them about the Rebellyon), but to my understanding, they're now giving GLEE the rights to do a production of Rocky Horror (a stage version, I believe) with the teacher, Lea Michele, and someone else. I hope it doesn't turn into the idea of a movie, because that would make me want to vomit everywhere. I'm all for spreading the love of Rocky Horror, but not in a way that discourages what gave it the success, which is the ORIGINAL MOVIE.
Oh, and Rocky Horror Show is opening at a theater near my house this weekend, so I'll probably end up going with someone. Cabaret also opened out at my friend's college, and I need to see that as well.
Unrelated: Richard O'Brian voices Ferb's Dad in Phineas and Ferb, and when I found out, it made me love the show more. And Tim Curry is a God.
That is all
