So Fox is going to make a TV remake of Rocky Horror.  Why?  Yes it does have a cult following, but that is mostly for the call back experience in the theatres.  If you're honest about it, watching the show all by it's lonesome is a mediocre experience.  Especially if you watch it not knowing anything of the live show experience.  I have no idea how they expect this thing to be any good.

There's only one Franke-n-furter, sorry.

 

Edit: And why reimagine something that's not broken and meant to be campy in the first place? What is 2014s idea of campy vs the 1970s? And Fox......Fox. It's FOX. I'd rather see a bunch of die hard fans do this with their home camera.

Whyyyy?????

I never went to the live shows. But I love the movie. I love me some Tim Curry. That and Clue are some of his best roles IMO.

 

I think it is due to not wanting to risk a new idea being turned down, so they just remake something already known assuming it will more likely get funding.

Fox makes some of the worst decisions though. Shows canceled before they needed to be, shows that probably shouldn't have survived past a season but went on endlessly. There were sooooo many and now this. This wouldn't be so irritating if I suspected it will be done half elfed, high school musical, glee club style.

This.

 

I personally like Rocky Horror even without the audience because I really dig the music and I think it is actually pretty funny.

 

But moreover, I consider Tim Curry's performance in the movie to be one of the greatest singular character performances ever committed to film. It's an uncanny, charismatic, amazing performance and an example of how an actor can so fearlessly inhabit a character (or vise-versa) that you can't imagine it is not really himself he is portraying on the screen.

 

I see no reason (and no way) to recreate that. I am not against reboots, remakes, sequels or prequels on principle as some are. Sometimes they make for great - and surprising - art. But some things are best left alone, if for no other reason than the odds of success have been made preternaturally long by the greatness of what came before.

      Here's a few of the 3d printed characters from the crowdfunded project by Kazrak Studio.  They were done in resin, and have some very fine details. 
       
      John H. Damon, who likes to read old books written in strange languages: 

       
      Dr Weird Psychic, a student of the mystic arts who needs no introduction:

       
      Laura Craft, field archaeologist and explorer:

       
      And dear Dr Home, the brilliant surgeon with a lousy bedside manner: 

       
      All are presented on bases from Secret Weapon.

      This is the second miniature I've ever painted, and the first with Reaper paints. I figured that a brush holder would come in handy for the all the Bones V painting in my future! The only Reaper paints I own are the Bones V paints (Learn to Paint kit and the two collections), plus two bottles of Reaper MSP 9038 Rainy Gray.
       
      Overall I'm really pleased with the way this first attempt worked out! I primed everything with 9038 Rainy Gray, then put on the base coats. The wings and ears gave me the most trouble as I had generously overpainted with 9410 Dragon Green, and was attempting a wet blend with 09468 Brilliant Red and 09218 Lava Orange. They required seven or eight coats before I got solid coverage over the green. Once everything was painted and cleaned up, I did a dry brush highlight pass, and then sealed it with two coats of Rust-oleum Crystal Clear Enamel and one coat of Testors Dullcote. I waited 24 hours between each coat to give it plenty of time to dry. I also masked off the gold pile prior to the Dullcote to make sure it would stay shiny.
       
      Some things that could have been better:
       
      The eyes should have been a different color to make them pop, instead of disappearing in the face. Additionally the right eye is quite muddy and the pupil gets lost amidst all the black veins. I was getting tired of working on Rocky at this point and wanted to get it finished. Ideally the eye would have been repainted. The left eye is better, but still gets lost in all the green. I forgot that my wash darkens the mini, and didn't paint in brighter colors to compensate, which means overall it's quite muted and dark.

      Love these little guys, they are so cute and evil looking at the same time.  This is the Bones version.  
       

       

       
      I previously did two metal homonculi, who will be happy to have a new pack member.

      Painted this guy waaay back in April.  Been a while since I did any show off threads...  Anyway, had fun making his carapace look shiny.  This was also a special needs Bathalian, coming to me with a missing tentacle. I was able to carve one out of some leftover sprue that I keep on hand for such emergencies. 
       

       

       
      I'm looking forward to painting his friends.

      I saw the Rocky miniatures, and with how cute they are I could not resist getting one to use as a dragon to send against my players. As such, here is my take on the Flying Rocky, as a juvenile Red Dragon!
