At the start of the film we see the projectionist start a single 35mm projector loaded with a single 1000 ft reel. This would only provide about 20 minutes of the film at most and nowhere near enough footage for the whole movie. See more »
In December 2016, an "extended cut" was released on DVD that includes Brad's song "Once in a While" (which was shot for, and cut from, both the broadcast TV and 1975 versions) and the complete end credits, which features Adam Lambert's and Ivy Levan's bright red lips singing an extended reprise of "Science Fiction, Double Feature." Commercial break fade-outs were replaced by wipes and seamless edits. See more »
This remake attempts to stay true to the original. While the story line modifications are fitting the performances are lacking the emotion of the original.
The musical performances also stay true to the original, which I enjoyed but it was very difficult to get over the overproduction of the vocal performances as it clearly highlights the lip syncing. I feel that if the vocal performances were recorded during filming that it would be much better.
The acting lacks any emotion. It's like watching the cast going through the motions and running lines to an empty audience.
I want to give a better rating, but this is not how we should be honouring a classic.
