2021 Blind Spot Series: Little Shop Of Horrors
What I knew going in: The basic plot
Seymour (Rick Moranis) is a loney flower shop worker who crushes on his colleague Audrey (Ellen Greene) while they both dream of leaving Skid Row. Seymour comes across a strange and unusual plant and comes to find out that it lives off blood.
Yes, I had to make a quick change to my Blind Spot list because once again, I cannot find Suddenly, Last Summer anywhere. This was a film that I have always meant to see as I love musicals, but somehow missed. Since it was available on HBO Max, I went for it, and I am so glad I did.
I loved this! It's so much fun, and I've watched it twice this week already. I was very familiar with the stage show, and I know the movie has a different ending. (I also watched the original ending on youtube, which I liked. My son thinks the movie ending is better) I loved how catchy the songs were, the Greek Chorus was wonderful and I loved how over the top and ridiculous everyone was. Plus, a plant tells Rick Moranis "tough titty" more than once. That's amazing.
I left this movie wanting to see the stage show every more. At 94 minutes, this film flies by which makes it even more rewatchable. I'm actually glad my list fell through last minute. Now I finally get to see and love this.
