8 Cinematic Choke Jobs That Billy Cundiff Would Appreciate

Roy Munson – Kingpin

Was Roy Munson a better bowler than Big Ern McCracken? Maybe not, but he was good enough that he shouldn’t have missed that last shot, only to end up Munsoned out there in the middle of nowhere. Sure, he may have over achieved with the prosthetic hand and all, but the adage goes, “If you’re good enough to come in second place, you’re good enough to be disappointed.” We’re all disappointed in you Roy. I’m sure being Munsoned alone with his feelings was far worse than any criticism that we could levy on him.

Greedo – Star Wars (the stupid redone version)

First of all, I would like to state that the fact that George Lucas added the “Greedo shoots first” touch in the 1997 re-visit/boot/telling/make of Star Wars to the delight of absolutely no one.

Nonetheless, Greedo misses Han from about two feet away. Not to be callous, but Greedo deserved to die the entire time if that’s the shot he missed. If this guy was Jabba’s muscle, then I’m going to venture a guess that Jabba didn’t collect on his money very often.

It was a horribly-conceived scene featuring an apparently God-awful bounty hunter.

Unnamed Character – Pulp Fiction

There are a few choke jobs here, and while Vincent and Jules should have been better prepared to deal with a rogue occupant in the bathroom, the real choke was by that nameless occupant, played by Alexis Arquette, who empties his pistol at near point-blank range, only to miss to the left, right, and even through them.

Sure, there may have been divine intervention on the side of the hitmen, but the truly prepared know that God is on their side.
