Christine : Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

There's a lot of chances along the way where he could have hopped on and get away from Christine, but he chose to run himself into a frigging deadend that's like 10 feets long.. WHAT AN IDIOT! I mean the car is haunted but it ain't no transformer.. I doubt it will transform itself and fly on top of a building LMAO

Buddy too, he decides to run right in the middle of the road!

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

Nobody said any of them were geniuses.

Look at Buddy - he was about 30 years old and still in high school laugh.gif

I agree about Buddy but he seemed to be in area where there was no place to hide, plus his death looked awesome. The fat kid was a knucklehead but to give him credit he actually did end up in a area where Christine could not theoretically get to him.

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

Take a look at Leigh; I could've slapped her. Just standing there making herself an easy target making one dumb face after another, waiting for Dennis to warn her. After her only sensible stunt, swinging herself upward, there was a LADDER going up right next to her, for chrissakes! If you want to get away from a charging car, climb UP. Better yet, join your friend in the bulldozer, what say?

Hate the scripts they gave girls in the 80s. All dumb expressions, squeaky voices and a tear or two.

You are an ant in the afterbirth.

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

William Ostrander (who played Buddy Repperton) said when they were shooting the scene where Christine was chasing him down the highway after the gas station explosion, he asked John Carpenter "John, why am I running straight down the middle of the road?" Carpenter said "Because it's a movie." :D

perfect answer. :)

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

perfect answer only if your braindead. Being a movie does not excuse utter stupidity, and im sorry to hear such a mastermind as Carpenter ever thought this was ok.

Picking apart a movie about a possessed '58 Plymouth yeah, that sounds like a real deep thinker at work.

If that kind of thing bothers you, you might want to learn your possessives and contractions while you're at it.

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

It does not matter what the movie is about. if the characters act like brainless idiots without a reason its a problem.

I know! It would have been so much better if Buddy would have popped wheels out of his feet, dropped his pants and lit one of his farts to propel himself down the road like a rocket. How awesome would it have been to see him bent over and shooting down the highway with a huge flame coming out of his ass while laughing at Christine's inability to keep up? And the great thing is that they could totally do such a scene without it seeming the least bit out of place because they already have one element of the movie that doesn't conform to reality, so that gives them free reign to do absolutely anything!

Thanks for that hilarious visual biggrin.gif! It's going to be really difficult not to imagine this the next time I watch Christine!

Was it a millionaire who said "Imagine no possessions"?

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

I am in tears literally! Thank you!

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christi

Bump.

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?


I thought the same thing when I watched this: Jump on top of Christine!

And Buddy Repertonwhat kind of goofus runs in the middle of the road to escape a car?!!

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

Him and his buddies were mindless cretins. That's all one needs to know.




Living in the sixth dimension. Things get rough.

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

He could've just jumped on top of the car, climbed over it, and ran.

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

Christine WAS kind of a transformer. She crushpushed herself into the narrow alley just to kill the fat guy. And later, during the climactic fight with the bulldozer, Christine tried to regenerate again but was too slow.

But I agree on that I would have jumped on the hood of the car. He probably was too frightened and too surprised at Arnie/Christine trying to reach and crush him.

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

Yeah, because fat people are known for being quick and agile.

Who says violence is not the answer?

Love the thread title lol. And agree with you, every time that scene comes up I just face-palm then laugh my ass off

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christine?

He was probably in such shock that the car they had just totaled a night or two before was in perfect condition and chasing him with nobody driving. I can't imagine you would be thinking clearly if it happened to you.

So who knows what any of us would really do if a car and driver was chasing us and about to mow us down


Yes, especially if it is a driverless car.

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christi

I think the point was fatty wasn't too bright or agile to begin with.

It's not like he was going to turn into a Ninja and jump up and run over the top of the car..

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christi

I always wondered the same thing- why didn't Moochie just jump up on the front hood of Christine and climb over her top then run down the back while she was jamming herself into that little space?! I guess he was not bright enough to think of that and maybe was also too porky to do any more jumping up

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christi

The thing to do would have been to climb up onto the concrete divider under the bridge. If she comes from one side, jump to the other. She can't bash through it over climb over it; she'd have to go down the street and around the end of the divider to come back and hit it from the other side, and by then you could have climbed back over it again, maybe buying enough time to run to something else solid.

I always get a sympathy twinge when Moochie climbs over the chain link fence and falls down the other side; that stuntman must have seriously twisted his ankle, at a minimum

- HOW kin I be so brainless, when I is so smart?

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christi


Why didn't that fatass just get on top


Maybe the load he had in his shorts was weighing him down.

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christi

typical in a Carpenter movie where the characters make dumb decisions, it's a cheap trick to create tension

same thing happens in Halloween

lazy film making is what it is







so many movies, so little time

Re: Why didn't that fatass just get on top of anything away from Christi

As far as Buddy Repperton goes, the only available hiding place I saw for him was a tow truck in the gasoline station parking lot. He could have went inside of there in the cab and ducked down.
By the time Christine reversed out of the burning gasoline station engulfed in flames, he would already been inside and it would have not known where he went..

Cliché

It's an old clich. WHen people are chased at a highrise, they always run UP the stairs, cornering themselves on the roof!
