for her, then gets her, knocks her out, carries her down the street then and does nothing.
The point to this, if you paid attention, Michael was pretty much treated like s--t by everyone around him growing up. But he cared for Laurie, his
baby sister, which is why, in the basement, he shows her the photo of them when she was just a baby. In a sense, Michael was searching for the one
person in the world who might possibly care about him, of course Laurie was just a baby and she couldn't remember Michael at all. This was set up to
make Michael seem more human
, and to give a logical motive for the situation between him and Laurie. Because Micheal Myers, all evil aside, is
nothing more than a serial killer, he is not the boogeyman. There had to be a motive for why he became evil, hence the really bad childhood!
Personally, I like the new Michael Myers, the character is more realistic knowing why he is the way he is. His size is irrelevent to the story,
Michael Myers does not have to be a certain build for any reason at all!
The original Halloween was a classic, sure, but having a guy in a mask sneak around and kill people for no apparent reason for an hour and a half is
pretty boring! This version adds more depth, making it far more interesting than the original, which is not necessarily saying it's better than the
original, just more interesting!
