The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) Review
“Lets do the time warp again” Defintaly one of my favorite films of all time, and not just with my favorite musicals but films too. Tim Curry really is incredible as Frank N Furter !!! Who would think a small B movie like this one would have become such a hit and have a huge cult following. It truly is fantastic from start to finish. However, on first viewing probably very bizarre and odd. But if your a musicals fan you will definatly love this, even if your not you will probably find something to love about it. Meatloaf making an apperance and having a song. Susan Sarandon in one of her first roles, possibly what helped her to break through.
This movie is really the sex and can be linked very much with the glam rock music era which was about when this was first performed on the stage. It is so tongue in cheek with certain parts and just so sexy. Its so wrong that I find it all such a turn on, but I really cannot help it. I have watched it so many times now I have certain parts that I just adore for a random moment of a few seconds . . . and its all down to Tim Curry. He is just the best Frank ever, and no one could replace him in my opinion.
I just love all of the different songs in this movie, and find “Rose Tint My World/Don’t Dream It Be It” as THE SEX. It is so hot and just incredible. I mean . . . “give yourself over to absolute pleasure”. It really does not get more intense and hot than that. No wonder I have strange views on sex and things when loving a movie like this, and taking lines from it into everyday life hahaha.
More of my favorite quotes from this movie:
“A mental mind f**k can be nice.”
The timewarp is now a very well known song to get up and dance to at a party, and everyone just loves doing it. Yes when I am at a party I do lead it haha. I love it and request it at every party I go to, but still quite a lot of people do not realise that it is from the Rocky Horror, which I think is just shocking!!!
All of the acting is so over the top and tongue in cheek that has to be one of the main reasons why it is such a hit and has a major cult following. The following of this movie is so intense that people go dressed up and shout different things and throw different items when certain things are said, and yes this happens at cinema showings.
