Yeah, I'm the kind of person who can become absolutely obsessed with a movie without even having watched the whole thing... thank God for youtube, eh? :P

So if you've watched the movie, please give me some feedback on it! It'll be VERY much appreciated... :D

Hate it or love it movie.

I absolutely fuckin' hate it, but I have to admit the music is good. Especially the song with Meat Loaf.

Sadly I am in the latter too..

I can not stand Fatloaf. Worst person ever. Meatloaf makes Hitler look like a cunting Saint who, in his spare time, fucked little children making him a horrible candidate for Sainthood.

I actually fell asleep during the movie. I never do that but obviously that movie was so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so bad that my brain shut down so I didn't have to watch this triiiiiiipe.

So in short, yeah. I'm no fan. Just remember - Hitler better than Meatloaf.

Eh....it's a cult classic. I think everyone should watch it once, just so you know what it's about. But it's weak and plot and in places VERY disturbing, so once is really all you need.

Depends on what you can handle. For me, seeing Tim Curry in a corset, thigh highs with garters and high heels, walking around screwing both the guy and the girl in the story is on the disturbing side. To some others...maybe not so much.
Like I said, it's somethine everyone should see once, but once is generally enough.

Excellent music, terrible "storyline."

It's pretty much unbearable during any moment where music is not playing, but all in all, I like it. I'd be satisfied just listening to the soundtrack, though.

Music is great. The movie is admittedly silly.... thats all I can say, really. I love watching Meatloaf get killed though.

The narrator/criminologist dancing on the table during Time Warp is actually pretty funny.

I always thought Freddie would've made a better Frankenfurter. Oh well.

Really? I hate tapdancing, I always found that bit redundant! The rest of the song rocks though.

Actually I was always fond of that "I'm Going Home" song later on in the movie. And the song at the end is quite pretty.

I love the movie! The songs, the whole plot and the characters.

Tim Curry is amazing as Frank-n-Furter!!

:D

Tim Curry does a good job with the role I'll admit. Too bad he doesn't fess up to even doing the part now.
Freddie as Dr. Frank-n-Furter? Hmm...that would have been interesting to be sure.

And for yeeeeeears, Barry Bostwick, who played Brad ("asshole!") was emcee for "A Capitol 4th" - the yearly 4th of July program on TV in Washington DC. I have to say, he was PERFECT at doing that cheesey program, year after year.

I went to the 2003 dress rehearsal on July 3, and he cracked me up. There was some silly light mishap during one of his emcee bits, and they all went out... a few seconds later, in the darkness, one could hear, "I want you all to know, that wasn't my fault."

This year Jason Alexander was the emcee. I was soooo disappointed, LOL.

I love that film, its like one of the best cult films/musicals ever. Nothing better then a quite disturbing campy musical. I have never seen it live though, one day i will! I was in a sort of amatuer thing when i was in college, that was class!.
Overall music and acting very good indeed, storyline practically non existant, but you can't heve everything.

My favorite quote:
brad: What have you done with janet!?
frank: Nothing. why do you think i should?
