The Rocky Horror Picture Show

I think I might have been the last person in the world to see this movie but I FINALLY watched it the other night.

Oh. My. Word. How did it get to be such a classic? I alternated between laughing out loud and realizing that my mouth was hanging open.

I've always liked Tim Curry but . . . Well, yea. I liked Susan Sarandon's character. I suppose you could call Janet my favorite but . . . Haha, it's so funny because I can barely find words to describe my feelings regarding this movie.

It seemed a bit thrown together. Or maybe I just didn't get it. I mean, was Eddie really necessary? You know besides the great entrance and then his presence at dinner later. What about the whole preacher and the farmer couple at the beginning. I was confused about that too.

And the ENDING! What the heck?! I don't even know where to begin with the ending. Aliens? Really? They were aliens? Frank dies? Oh yea, they were ALIENS?!!?

I don't feel so ridiculous for having waited so long to see this movie now. I will give it this though. They've got some awfully catchy songs! I knew half of them before I ever saw the movie of course, but it was neat seeing them in context. Hehe.

Now that I've seen the movie I have to say (like I already said) I love Tim Curry BUT . . . Anthony Head did Frank WAY better. Not to mention he's much sexier.

By the way, I've had the songs stuck in my head for DAYS!
