Its the role that started him out. He started in the stage productions before the film

I'm not a big fan but I think Curry was great as Frank N Furter.

What is, What the EFF? about it?

When I first saw it I was prepared :lol: so basically I saw the exageration and irony in it, which makes it brilliant, I think.

I'm looking forward to seeing it, while trying not to expect too much. It's hard to make Captain America interesting, unless you've got him onscreen with someone antagonistic, like Iron Man.

How big a list would you like? Though Tim Curry and his Frank N Furter get-up tops the list hands down. Gimme Priscilla, Queen of the Desert anytime.

I can see why there's such a tradition of audience participation. It'd certainly increase the humour quotient. I should make my own custom riffs... :?

Saw Grand Budapest Hotel yesterday, it's sooo good! Very Wes Anderson, but that's why I like it : ) it is also a typical example of "how to get as many good famous actors in one movie as possible", but not in a forced, Expandables sort of way, it is done very elegantly.

Just watched the Extended Edition of The Fellowship of the Ring all the way through (more or less) for the first time ever. :)

The other two extended LotR versions are quite a revelation too Q.
So......recently I've seen Catching Fire which has recently come out on DVD. I didn't quite get the previous film nor this one but have concluded that there is nothing to get really. The story's not meant to be subtle and 3D, it's for teenagers! So I'd watch it again to pass the time certainly.
RIPD.....hm? It has all the elements of a stonking movie but just misses for me although I would watch it again.
On iPlayer I've been watching Shetland. It's a bit addictive! Lots in common with the recent rash of Scandanavian series.

Funnily enough, I just got the extended edition of The Two Towers (4 discs) from a charity shop this morning for £2. :)

It's the patience game isn't it?
Many years ago, when I didn't even have a TV, there was a series on ITV called Reilly, Ace of Spies starring Sam Neill. I got the entire series in a 3 disc boxset from a charity shop for £1.99 so I'm watching this for the very first time :D
