Rocky Horror Picture show remake

I was watching the TV remake of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.  I have to say it really didn't do it for me.

Things I hated.

1. The Opening Song, completely mispronounced some of the words.
2. Frank n' Furter was played by Laverne Cox.  A transgender woman.  How on earth can she then be singing "I'm just a sweet transvestite."?
3. The ending, considering that the original paid homage to all those old RKO Radio Pictures films, and had Rocky climbing the RKO Mast, a la King Kong style, the ending not only removed the RKO logo completely but didn't even have Rocky trying to climb the replacement.

While I can understand some remakes try and take an independent riff on things.  I just felt it was done wrongly.

Has anyone else seen the remake?

Re: Rocky Horror Picture show remake

I didn't like the cinema audience idea.

I can see that they were trying to recreate the viewing experience with water pistols, newspapers, rice, etc but this was a movie.  Trying to make it a stage play/movie cross was bad.

All in all a very bad attempt that needs to be wiped from memory.
