Oh, it'll still seem stupid. It's just his apologists will insist that it isn't.

Do people actually still believe the "toad struck by lightning" line was only bad because of Halle Berry? :confused:

I love the idea of Eddie Izzard in the role of Frank. Let's make this happen people.

I love the original film... I watch it at home and enjoy it and I used to date a Janet back in high school.

The blu-ray doesn't really give you that great feeling of eating food out of a chick's mouth, humping sex toys, or kissing members of the same sex that going to a live show does though ;)

You need to get a Baz Luhrmann involved though.

Someone call Tim Burton and Johnny Depp.

This phrase should never be uttered in the civilized world again.

Hey... I said "a" Baz not "the" Baz. :)

Gotta admit that Moulin Rouge is the RHPS of the 2000s though. There are even shadowcasts for that film as well.

Will Farrell as Dr. Scott. Danny McBride as Eddie. And it HAS to be Nathan Fillion as Ralph Hapshatt. Period.

Brad Majors: Paul Rudd
Janet Weiss: Anna Kendrick
Frank N Furter: Sam Rockwell
Riff Raff: Neil Patrick Harris
Magenta: Christina Hendricks
Columbia: Elizabeth Banks
Rocky: Tracy Morgan
Dr. Scott: Will Farrell
Eddie: Danny McBride


Now picture "Touch-A Touch Me" between Anna Kendrick and Tracy Morgan... instant classic!

The movie will only work if (A) Bill Moseley is cast as Riff-Raff and (B) Alan Rickman is the Criminologist.

John Barrowman for Frank N. Furter, Eddie Izzard for Riff Raff, Nick Frost for Eddie, Jesse Eisenberg for Brad, Mary Elizabeth Winstead for Janet, Karen Gillan for Magenta, Christina Hendricks for Columbia, Oliver Platt for Dr. Scott, and of course Tim Curry as the Narrator.

Brian Cox could also work in this role.

I think Stephen Fry might make a good narrator.

Oh, good call. I'm telling you, Fox should let DVD Talk remake this one.

Otherwise there's absolutely no point.

I agree about seeing it in a theater. I used to go in high school and college. Lots of fun with the full floor show and all the props. The very first time I smoked pot (age 16) was at Rocky Horror. :banana:

I still pull the DVD out at Halloween and watch most of the musical numbers.

I really like the movie.

Ditto.

While my enjoyment of the movie may be skewed by having experienced it in theaters back in the pre-VHS days, I still dig watching RHPS at home.

Great music, bizarre story, Susan Sarandon's heaving bosom? What's not to like?

Don't get me wrong, I like the movie a lot, but moreso because of the live floorshow / audience participation nostalgia that it engenders than the movie itself. I'm on my 4th home video iteration of it (VHS, Laserdisc, DVD, Blu-Ray) but I still go to a live show from time-to-time. :)

I don't think there are any more live shows around the Nashville area. One of the wildest ones I went to was in Nashville back in the 1980s when I was visiting from another state. :banana:
