I recently watched a trailer for an abomination called Gingerclown 3D that stars Mr. Curry and I instantly felt horrible that an actor of his awesomeness is appearing in what looks to be the shittiest movie ever made. Then I got to thinking about all of the really great parts that Curry has played and not all of them were in equally great movies. The dude just has a talent for turning crap into gold which brings me to the list of my Top 5 Favorite Tim Curry Roles!
The Not-So Final Girl is my own little observation about horror movies (most notably the slasher variety) and a tweak on the trope of the Final Girl, in that there is almost always one female character in a slasher film that usually gives the killer a run for his money before finally being taken out or just makes a huge enough impression on the audience (mostly through a strong performance by the actress) that we begin to wish she didn’t have to die.

Now on to the list!
For the uninitiated who are not up on their horror movie terminology, the Final Girl is a “horror film (particularly slasher film) trope that specifically refers to the last woman or girl alive to confront the killer, ostensibly the one left to tell the story“.

Scratch the surface of any actor and underneath you will find a frustrated singer dying to burst out and start belting a tune. Sadly most of these thespians don’t realize that they have little to no musical talent which usually results in auditory disasters like the unfortunate musical stylings of the 5 actors turned singers on this list. So sit back, pour yourself a glass of iced tea and prepare to be amazed by the sounds that these fellas considered to be quality music:
As great an actor as Samuel L. Jackson is there has always been one thing that has made me look sideways at the dude in some movies and that is the various wigs and facial hair attachments that he has utilized. I don’t think any actor in the history of Hollywood has been saddled with more ridiculous hair accessories and then challenged to go out and make the audience disregard just how stupid the hair styles look. So here is my list of Top 7 hair don’ts that Sam has had to overcome in his movie career.
