Some might think that its so ugly its cool.  Which ever side of the fence you may rest on, there is no doubt this 1960 Plymouth Fury does have style.  #kcvphotography #kcvDigitalServices #Plymouth #PlymouthFury #tailfins #carsofthesixties #smcde #toiletseat #convertible  #FF #instafollow, #l4l #tagforlikes #followback #love #instagood #tbt #photooftheday

Christine (1983) ⭐⭐⭐ 1/2
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Directed by John Carpenter
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Five years removed from Halloween, and fresh off The Thing, John Carpenter was tasked with adapting the possessed inanimate-object vehicle that was King’s Christine.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wisely, Carpenter takes the somewhat silly source material and finds a happy medium in terms of tone. Wiser still, Carpenter focuses strongly on the main theme of the novel: teenage angst navigating an identity crisis.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Keith Gordon is borderline masterful as Arnie Cunningham; pulling off a convincing character transition from timid puppy-dog to crazed narcissist, with perfect fluidity. It’s the kind of thing Jack Nicholson couldn’t do in The Shining, despite that otherwise incredible performance. Film veterans Robert Prosky and Roberts Blossom are also first-rate in supporting roles, lending an air of authenticity.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Christine could be classified as a creature feature, substituting twisted metal for organic matter. Unlike better examples of that sub-genre though, we’re not made to feel any sympathy for the beast. This ‘58 Plymouth Fury is just hell-bent on wreaking havoc for havocs sake; existing mainly to fuel Arnie's transition...and make stuff blow up. For that reason and others, the story itself is fairly forgettable, when compared to others in the King cannon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can always tell when you’re watching a John Carpenter movie, and Christine is no different. You got yer synth heavy soundtrack, yer clever uses of lighting, yer choice framing and yer forces of evil. I'm not the hugest Carpenter fan (sacrilege, I know), but the material could have been totally banal in less skilled hands. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The devil is in the detailing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
