Movie Meltdown - Episode 329
This week we welcome back epyon5 to discuss The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Not only do we talk about the film itself, but also personal memories of our experiences as well as the impact the movie had on society and the lives of it's devoted fanbase.
And as we remember that when you're a teenager EVERYTHING is the end of the world, we also mention... The Vogue, Richard O'Brien: time traveler, Hammer horror, hangin' out with people in their underbritches... and yelling obscenities, it had one screen, Sci Fi, being theatrical, being progressive, Tim Curry, Star Wars, a presentation in English class, a virgin spelling bee, The Ziegfeld Theater, subtle nuances, at 3 o'clock in the morning they will not serve you mashed potatoes, schlocky horror, Pi, getting turned into a shoe store, GG Allin, a scathing review, 4711, Jim Steinman, Barry Bostwick, comic book effects, Funko Pop!, The Full Monty, Oakley Court, it makes my heart hurt, Jim Sharman, the amazing Kool-Aid machine, Legend, George Clooney, working your way up the space ladder, George Lucas, Spike and Mike, a totally dorky guy, everyone wants to be Batman, MST3K, the Godfather of transvestite aliens, 50's saxophone playing rock 'n roll, Patricia Quinn, faking an orgasm, the simpler they are the more memorable they are, Dark City, I'm pretty... ok, breaking down barriers, Richard Nixon, dressed as a set piece, Meat Loaf, Starlog, the intricate plot, Bad for Good, Susan Sarandon and are all Tatianas crazy?
