I went into The Rocky Horror Picture Show expecting to hate it, and the Fox production exceeded my expectations. Tim Curry and Meat Loaf have been on my To-Do list since I was kid, so this movie has a special place in my heart. Tonight at 8p, Fox broke my heart by destroying the classic cult film.
Instead of starting off with the infamous lips, we get a woman singing as she escorts people in to a movie theater. Those people are now supposed to be the audience that will represent the audiences that have been going to see the movie for decades at midnight on Friday nights.
If that was the only change, I would be OK, but it isn’t. Far from it. My iPod loves playing Dammit Janet and the version in this movie sounds different than the one I know. It isn’t only that. The pre-recorded tracks sound cheap and brassy, in fact all the tracks sounds that way and that it distracts from the telemovie.
If it was only the new arrangements that sounds bad and different, I would maybe forgive them, but it is also the acting and casting choices. The whole joke about Dr. Frank-N-Furter is he was a man poorly dressed as a woman, thus the song I am a Sweet Transvestite. Seeing Laverne Cox in the role, she looks like the woman she is and the joke and song are ruined. The rest of the cast also doesn’t get it and Adam Lambert’s death scene could not come soon enough.
Just like the ending of this reboot.
The original Rocky Horror was a great movie, and this is the community theater version of it that is playing in Dubuque, Iowa. And even their local reviewers can’t give it a good review.
At this point nothing should shock us when it comes to Donald Trump, but normal people, like me, are still shocked.
Today The Washington Post uncovered a video from 2005 of Donald Trump and Billy Bush talking about using their stardom to get women to do what he wants.
The Presidential candidate says in the video, “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.
“And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want,” says another voice, apparently Bush’s.
“Grab them by the p—y,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”
No you can’t, especially with skin and hair like yours. Let’s not even get started on your personality.
How can anyone still vote for him especially women. We are more than sex toys for him.
Now I am going to talk about Billy Bush, I think Today needs to fire him for acting like a pimp to get Arianne Zucker to hug both Trump and him. The horrible anchor took advantage of the talented and sweet actress. He knew how Trump felt about her, and forced her to hug him. To say he didn’t put her in a compromising position, I think would be grossly mistaken. When you are on camera, you need to do what is asked of you or you will look horrible. She was doing what any publicist would tell her to do. You can tell Zucker did not want to hug him, but she had no choice.
Therefore, I can’t understand how Today could keep him, something that Page Six says they are planning on doing. I think there needs to be a full investigation to see what other actresses he did this to. His job is working with celebrities on camera every day and I wouldn’t want to be around a man like that. One who, I think, used his power to force a woman to do things they didn’t want to do.
Bush gave this apology, “Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago — I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry.” He was 33, he was not 18. Don’t bring age into this as an excuse. Trump also released a statement, “This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.” Seriously, there is just nothing more to say. I just shake my head. Evey day, I shake my head over him.
Tonight at 9p, Pitch’s 2nd episode is a home run on Fox. Ginny (Kylie Bunbury) is prepping for starting a game, and people are still only focusing on the fact that she is the first female to start a major sports game. All she wants is to be seen like everyone else, but she is seen as a gimmick. Tonight, she is going to show all of them she is just like all of her male counterparts. She might not have bat between her legs, but she is just as good if not better.
Will it work?
Pitch is one of those shows that makes a difference. It shows little girls that they grow up to be anything she wants to be.
Pitch is a good show that sadly has a bad timeslot. Therefore, I say tune in to tonight and every Thursday because it deserves to go to extra innings.
There is a new tortilla chip coming out next month that is so hot, it comes in coffin packaging and they are all wrapped individually.
Today on Today, Tamron Hall, Billy Bush and Al Roker all tried the Paqui Carolina Reaper (the Carolina Reaper is over 1.5 million on the Scoville Heat Scale and hotter than the Ghost Pepper) and their reaction was hot. Hall walked off the set, Bush made like the burning bush and Roker was as cool at winter days he reports on.
Part of me, is like I want to try it, and then my butt reminded me, “Burns going, burns ever more coming out!” Don’t tell Hall that, although she will find out soon enough!
