WTF MTV...Don't Destroy Frank N Furter!!


MTV has made me angry. VERY Angry.

I read today that there will be a remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show...MTV style.

Why?

Was the original not good enough? Why would someone choose to remake a cult classic. They have to know that there will be a backlash and that it could not possibly be as good as the original.

How could they be allowed to do this? This is a cult classic...a national treasure if you will.

Perhaps I'm over reacting. I do have "special feelings" for Tim Curry. He IS in my safe zone (My group of five men where if I meet them I am allowed to have sex with them no repercussions...my list includes: Bob Dylan, Tim Curry, Prince, Robert Downey Jr. and John Cusak).

Regardless, this may cause me to become a cutter...

I am in total agreement with you. How can you remake something that is already, well, perfect!

I do have to say that if done correctly (like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Tim Burton). It could maintain a place in my DVD collection, but like Charlie it wouldn't replace the original.

My girlfriend heads up the RHPS in Seattle as Frank, and they're PETITIONING against this whole rigamarole. I think it's a horrible idea, too!
