Halloween brought this subject up once again:
When talking to friends, it turned out that I seem to be the only one not liking that specific  play/movie.  So, I would just like to know:
Am I also the only here on "Peelified" who dislikes "Rocky Horror", or are there (at least) some others?
(You do not have to hate it or consider it the worst play/movie ever, a simple "I don't get what the big fuzz is about that thing" will suffice... wink )

I like it. It's not the best play/movie ever, but I like it.

I loathe all musicals.
With the exception of Jesus Christ Superstar... which is odd, for reasons obvious to some people on this board.

I wasn't a fan. But I saw it on DVD and didn't realize it's not really supposed to be "good" in the first place. I'd probably enjoy a screening if I went to one. I've been to The Room like five times. Cult movies are fun.

I've been to a midnight showing, that alone is why that movie is awesome.

I used to think it was poor, but I loved a few of the songs - a relationship I have with a lot of musicals (Grease, Sweet Charity, etc).

But as I've grown to love more and more of the songs, I've started to think that maybe I would enjoy it if I watched it again and I was just too young to really 'get it' the first time around.

I mean, it's got Tim Curry in it.

I generally detest musicals of any kind, but I liked Rocky Horror, Paint Your Wagon, and Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings.

I imagine there must be at least a few other PEELers who don't like the RHPS but as someone who bought the DVD I'm afraid I'm not one of them. Sorry.

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

Then funny thing is: I can play that song.
(Yep, some day, I was fed up being asked EVERY Halloween Party "Can you also play Time Warp", so I learned it just to avoid being asked to learn it for next Halloween)

I adore Rocky Horror, sorry.

It's stupidly fantastic, has some amazing songs that you can dance like an idiot to, and when I went to see it on stage with my friends it was just fabulous. The whole play on stage was funny, drew you into the spectacle, and as a plus they encouraged the audience to dance and sing along to the songs if you knew them.

I'm a massive fan of musicals anyway, but RHPS is definitely up there in my top 5.

Rocky Horror Picture Show, Little Shop Of Horrors, and Into The Woods are the only three musicals I really adore.

I LOVE musicals, including RHPS. Seeing it on stage is such a great experience, too. The virgin games are awesome. I was brought in front of the stage, and a man dressed as Magenta bit a balloon from between my legs.

Rocky Horror pretty well sucks on its own.  At midnight showings, the crowd's interactions makes it bearable.

Note:  Tim Curry once stated that he never expected the role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter to follow him for the rest of his life.  WTF?

Well why would he? I don't think anybody involved with that film expected it to take on the gigantic cult following it has done.

Please.  In 1975, a guy starring in a movie where he played a transexual and wore slutty women's whore-like clothing practically sealed the deal for his place in history.

That's hardly the most ridiculous role Tim Curry has ever played though.

To me he will always be Pennywise, haunting my dreams.

Ed Wood practically did that and it wasn't even his most famous film. There are plenty of equally or more ridiculous B films with far less infamy than Rocky Horror. He probably just didn't think such a weird film would be seen by very many people.

To me, he'll always be Nigel Thornberry. Child of the '90s!

The episode of Tales from the Crypt where he played every single member of a family of hillbillies. That's it. That's the role that defined him.

I like The Rocky Horror Picture Show well enough. I've heard about a lot of negative experiences at the midnight extravaganzas, though, relating to bullying and circle-jerking. Is there any truth in this? What guy. Makes ya cry. Und I did. frown

I love it.  I've even made a villain in one of my comics have Magenta's hairstyle.  

Now that I think about it, I really hope they do a revival of Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens.

I haven't heard M0le but it wouldn't surprise me.   Just about everything eventually gets a clique who act like they own it and appoint themselves The Grand Council of This Thing I Like (there are a few things that are quite popular at my university at the moment, but the cliques have pretty much taken over them. You want to enjoy something, but it ends up being a popularity contest with the self appointed Powers That Be.  Even fund raising has become a tug of war between the Queen Bees and the Social Have Nots.  My friend used to be a big fan of gothic lolita, but she doesn't go to group meets anymore because she can't stand the cultlike conformity present amongst it: she's seen people bitched out and insulted for wearing this lace with that bonnet, or using that print with that cut of dress.)
