Pulling for you Tim. Incidentally, it’s amazing what they can do for stroke victims these days - a guy in the cube next to me had a stroke on a Monday, was able to talk the next day, move both sides of his body the day after, and sent home on Friday. Certainly they don’t all go so well but it’s totally possible to make a full recovery.
I know most people think of Tim Curry as that goofy transvestite Frankenstein, or whatever, in Rocky Horror Picture show. But to me he’s the freaky guy in Legend and later the awesome voice actor who was making videogame voice acting cool way before anyone else: Gabriel Knight, Sacrifice, and Brutal Legend were all better for his participation.
I have always loved Legend. Tim Curry is a fantastic performer, making so many great and memorable appearances in any number of film, television, and stage productions. Here is to wishing him a speedy and complete recovery.
I started out with this and then edited it out because I didn’t want to seem flippant about a situation so serious. Curse my overwrought sensitivities!
Without a doubt, it is a flawed enterprise; in fact, few films are this much the lesser of the sum of their parts in the way Legend is, if only because there are some really excellent parts. The effect the totality of the film had on a 14 year old, high on pool chlorine and girls after a day in the summer sun, however, was lasting.
