Slick Grace

Tim Curry is the greatest man to have ever walked this earth.
Cult Films. Madeline Kahn. Grace Slick. Nell Campbell. Matthew Broderick. TRHPS. David Bowie. Jane Russell. Gene Wilder. Rik Mayall. Christopher Walken.
Christopher Reeve. Lolita 1997.
Noel Fielding. Kevin Bacon. Studio Ghibli.

Upon watching The Hunt For Red October I was disappointed. Tim had so little screen time!! By the end of the film I was bored out my brains, Alec Baldwin was not my idea of a sexy lead character.

So then I watched The Shadow. Yet again, I was appalled at Tim’s screen time being directed to the supposed allure that is Alec Baldwin. Basically, Tim wants the girl - The girl wants Alec - Alec is too ‘enigmatic’ to give a damn but he kills Tim and gets her anyway. Like, what the shit man!?

I want Tim and Alec to star in another film together. I want Tim to get the girl. I want Alec Baldwin to not get the girl and have a really embarrassing part. I then want Tim’s portrayal to be praised universally and his other two brilliant roles to be recognised and rewarded with Alec being named “pooey and smelly and just no please”. Okay. Rant over.
