Copy Cats and Other Horrors

Those in charge of the entertainment world are really pissing me off (again).
Long time (or long-suffering?) readers know exactly how I feel about remakes. I ranted out that toxic hatred of movie remakes in March of 2014. Only two years later I am ranting again.

This latest debauchery was brought to my attention yesterday…


Q. Guess which well-known and loved character this chick plays in a 2016 remake?

A. Cat Woman?       Nope.

A. Dolly Parton’s character in that whorehouse movie?             Nope.

A. New club owner in True “Blood”?  Nope.

Give up??

Final Answer: Dr. Frank N. Furter

“NO!  NOT THAT!”   Oh yes that, and that’s not the worst part!

“What could be worse than a movie remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show?”  Funny you should ask…

“Remaking the movie into a TV Series – that’s what.”

Are there no men in the actor community these days that have any balls?  Tim Curry had the (very large) balls to not only take on the roll, but become the best Frank N. Furter there could be.

Apparently not. Because they cast a woman.  Do they not realize the difference between a woman in her undergarments and a male transvestite in women’s undergarments?  They must have completely rewritten the story into what must truly be a horror picture show.

Now there’s a Hunk o’ Hunk of Burning Love for ya…
