The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Lets Do The Time Warp Again – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Well this one is interesting.  It you look online, you’d think that this remake was mostly Fox shooting the cast of the original against a brick wall live on TV.  It’s not.  Actually as a fan of both the film and the stage show, I welcome new versions of what is a much adapted classic.  And for the most part this film is pretty good.  The Time Warp is fantastic and most of the new cast aquit themselves well.  There’s even a welcome return for the usherette, cruelly let out of try original film! HOWEVER the films biggest weakness is Frank herself, Laverne Cox, who sadly just lacks the charisma of Tim Curry delivering Sweet Transvestite as a strangely muted, lifeless number.  So far from terrible and worth a watch but COULD be better.

Best Bit: Time Warp!
