LineNoise: RexTalionis: In hindsight, that movie sucked.Unless you were a fat person looking to take off your clothes.
evilmrsock: I still think I like Shock Treatment better. It's a shame that movie is overshadowed the way it is.
abfalter: So here is my Rocky Horror story.I already knew all of the songs before I ever went to the show because my mom (a child of the 60's and let's just leave it at that) had the albumn and I would play it a lot when I was a teenager. She would not take me to actually see the movie so when I turned 18 I decided to go see it one night.I called my buddy, one of the nerdiest kids I know --who actually wore those thick black glasses --and asked him what he was doing at midnight. He said nothing, and so I said "We're going to a movie. I'll pick you up". So we went. He had no idea what movie we were going to see.This was in the Prudential Town Center outside of Detroit about 25-30 years ago. They had a pretty active crowd. Tons of rice and such being thrown around, the whole nine yards. A good show, unlike some of the tamer ones I have been to since.So we watched the movie and my friend had never seen anything like it before in his life. We had a blast and hung out after the show at a White Castles (which became a post show tradition) since it was the only thing open.We ended up going over 100 times after that.Somewhere around the 20th time my mom brought me home a pair of tiny gold lame' shorts that she found in a thrift shop. I bought some used hightop shoes and spraypainted them gold. The theater said you had to wear a shirt, but an ACE bandage was good enough for them and so I started showing up dressed as Rocky. (I had enough of a body at that point to pull off Rocky. Today, not so much....)We went every Friday and Saturday night as regulars, bringing along an even increasing amount of friends. I even managed to find a "groupie" my friend nicknamed "plastic fark doll" who could do some amazing things. The time she handcuffed me to a steering wheel in a church parking lot at 3:00am is a different story...One day a friend bought an entire shopping bag of rice, opened it up in the front row, and declared war on the audience before the movie had ...
MyKingdomForYourHorse: Insight and Rocky Horror Picture do not belong in the same sentence together.
Mrbogey: I always took it as the film equivilant of a drug trip. Not much to explain. It is whatever your experience makes of it. Usually fun if you're in the right frame of mind but god awful if not.
Dr Dreidel: I say that life is an illusion.
verbaltoxin: We usually pop it in around Halloween or so. It's become pretty standard viewing for that time of year, along with the original Halloween by John Carpenter.
NeoBad: It was a great movieDance to the time warp again......Dance to the time warp again.......Just a jump to the left.....and a jump to the riiiiiiggghhhhtPut your hands on your hips...........Now I hope you all can't get that song out of your heads all day long pppffffttttt
Oscar_Madisons_cleaning_lady: Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday, dear Rocky...
abfalter: RexTalionis: In hindsight, that movie sucked.If you were watching the movie you lost the point. The fun was watching the audience goofing off reacting to a barely-watched movie.
karnal: Lost my virginity in the back row of the local Bijou Theatre to the Floor Show scene./Woo!
karnal: always had a thing for Columbia[thumbs2.modthesims.info image 300x515]
unchellmatt: It's astounding.
Snort: There is a statue to Rocky in Philly.There is a statue to Riff Raff in Hamilton, NZ
