Not worth the time it took to watch

I love the original Rocky Horror Picture Show, and I am a huge fan of Laverne Cox, so I was really excited to see how an updated version would turn out. But I am only disappointed. The best part of the movie was Tim Curry, I just wish he had more screen time. Again, while I am a huge fan of Laverne Cox, and she didn't butcher the role like the actor playing Columbia did, she really didn't do the role justice. I don't know if casting a male actor would have been better, or if it's just because no one could hold a candle to Tim Curry's performance, but this Dr. Frank-N-Furter really left me wanting more from the performance. Reeve Carney did an amazing job as Riff Raff, and the roles of Brad, Janet, and Rocky were wonderfully filled. Other than those four roles (and of course, Tim Curry), I feel the whole show was improperly cast. Especially Columbia, who just seemed to be reaching too far and falling too short every time she was on screen. Magenta wasn't great, but wasn't bad either. She was just there. Really, they just should have left a classic alone, because this was just a disappointment.
