******Chapter 17******

As I checked the rearview mirror, the nagging doubt overtook all three of us. Maybe our journey had reached its end. With Dabney Coleman and I exhausted of all leads in this case, we were operating on empty tanks. I don’t know how Dabney found the strength to face every day, having been forced at gunpoint to execute Evangeline Lily with a cinder block. I’m guessing that at this point, Dabney was operating as more animal than man.

I, on the other hand, was feeling all too human. After taking down the Croation mob and their American contact, J.J. Abrams, I knew I would spend the rest of my life looking over my shoulder. I didn’t need to ask for trouble to know that I was going to find it sooner or later. Dabney was my best friend in the entire world, but we were going nowhere fast, even with the expert computer-hacking skills of Dabney’s right-hand man, Gene Hackman.

Gene had taken some time off after The Royal Tenenbaums wandering around Far East Asia, working as a gun for hire for those few that could afford him. He’d been out of the game a couple years now, but, like me, decided that he couldn’t sit idly by while Dabney saught vengeance. No, we wanted to help him.

Driving in from the private airfield in Savannah, Georgia, it looked like someone had been expecting us. Two black Range Rovers were following us. Without letting them know I was on to the tail, I discreetly sped up and sped down, while the tail cars did the same, only more slowly. I realized then that these cars were slower because they were armored. Someone important was in that car.

But who?

I tossed Gene the binoculars. “We got company.”

Gene peered at our tails and read out the following:

“X-Ray, Tango, Romeo, Romeo, Four, Nine, Bravo, Six.”

Dabney wrote the license plate number down with his one good arm. Using a NexTel CommStat backdoor patch, Gene was able to access the Georgia DMV. The cars were registered to TelDyne Industries, the same TelDyne industries that Meghan Coleman was investigating before she was kidnapped. The same one that we suspected of forcing Dabney to beat Evangeline Lily to death.

“Change of plans,” Gene said, buried in his computer screen. We’re going to pay the CEO of TelDyne, Augustus LeDoux, a visit.

For the next five minutes, on the drive to Augustus plantation manor, we rode in silence. Though Dabney was cool on the surface, I could feel him seething underneath. I could still see the blood on his knuckles for God’s sake. Someone had to pay.

As we pulled up to the gate of the estate, we were faced with an intercom and a camera. Before I could turn to the backseat for advice, the speaker crackled.

“Dabney Coleman, I presume?”

Dabney muttered with his teeth clenched, “That’s right you son of a bitch. I’m gonna bury you. The same way I buried Abrams.”

“By all means then, enter. I would like to straighten this mess out as much as you would, I’m sure,” the intercom said, coldly. “Please pull through.”

A black butler in a tuxedo greeted us at the door. The LeDoux family had run all of the deep south’s criminal activity since Reconstruction, and they were treated with equal parts respect and fear by the residents. As we walked in, we were stunned to see Augustus walk down the spiral staircase to meet us.

“But…but…but your bio said that you were paralyzed in a boar-hunting accident over 15 years ago,” Gene said, slowly reaching for the knife strapped to his left ankle.

“I wouldn’t do that if I were you, Mr. Hackman. Do you really think I would let you in if I didn’t feel 100% secure that I could kill you?” Augustus asked rhetorically. “Come with me. There’s something I’d like to show you.”

As we walked through acres of land behind his house, we came to a corrugated metal structure. Once LeDoux began to slide the door open and enter, dozens of dogs barking echoed out over the land. I knew what we were walking into.

A captain of criminal industry, LeDoux was nonetheless a southern boy, through and through. Consequently, rumors and innuendo’s abounded about the LeDoux’s family involvement in dogfighting. However, no one breathed a word of such allegations after Janet Hotchkiss, a reporter for the Miami Herald, disappeared while working on a dogfighting expose.

If that wasn’t suspicious enough, we had the proof right in front of us.

Over 60 dobermans, and pit bulls barked incessantly in their cages as we passed through the foul-smelling room. Dabney, a very outspoken animal lover, looked visibly shaken. He certainly didn’t need this piled on top of his problems.

“I’ve put myself in a bit of a quandary,” LeDoux said with a slow southern drawl. A victim of my own pride, I wanted to show you my animals, but you know as well as I do that since you’ve seen them, I can’t let you leave…alive.

No sooner did I see that than two of LeDoux’s henchmen took Gene Hackman and hung him upside down, painting his arm with barbecue sauce. He had a look of abject fear that quickly turned to resignation as he knew to expect the worse. If LeDoux had his way, we were all going to die in this building.

With a slight nod from LeDoux, the thugs grabbed Gene and slammed him up against the last cage in the row. “This is my pride and joy. A purebred pitbull named Esteban. I’ve seen him take apart a pig in 45 seconds. What do you think he’ll do to Mr. Hackman’s arm? Need that hand for typing, Gene?”

Gene sat their stoically as the dog came over and started gnawing away at his hand. It was only when I saw Augustus LeDoux put the pistol in Dabney’s hand that I realized this was an exercise to torment Dabney, and that Gene’s suffering was incidental.

The parameters were unspoken, but very clear. Dabney can shoot the innocent dog, trained to be a killing machine by man, or he can watch his friend’s arm be taken off in extremely painful fashion.

No sooner than the gun touched his palm than Dabney spun around and put one shot in LeDoux’s head. The henchman immediately fired on us, allowing Gene to break free, though the damage to his hand was evident. We all headed into the maze of dog crates, affording us temporary refuge from the gunfire.

LeDoux had only put one bullet in the gun. He was no idiot. So we weren’t going to be able to shoot our way out. We were going to have to use diplomacy.

“Hold your fire!” Dabney Coleman said to our pursuers. “I think we can reach an understanding…”

Instead Of David Arquette, These 9 Actors Should Sign On For ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Thu, 25 Aug 2011 21:41:00 +0000 Penn Collins Because we're tired of watching happy, attractive people dance.

The post Instead Of David Arquette, These 9 Actors Should Sign On For ‘Dancing With The Stars’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Today it was announced that David Arquette will be joining the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars, which is “news” only in the most literal sense of the word. Arquette is just one of many mass-marketed celebrities to appear on the show with (presumably) the goal of reinventing themselves for some professional or personal purpose.

That’s crap. The show should only pick stars baed on their unintentional humor quotient. This quotient could be an amalgam of: how strange the person looks, how seriously they take themselves, how logistically difficult it would be for that person to participate in a dance contest, and other factors that would make the show tolerable to watch.

9. Steve Buscemi

We see him dance (well) on Boardwalk Empire, but that context lends itself to taking him seriously. I want to see Mr. Buscemi dressed up in a black leather jacket with greased hair, tossing some girl in a poodle skirt around to “Rock Around The Clock.”

8. Kristen Stewart

Why? Because twitchy people have a difficult time sitting still when they are being lowered for tango dips. Also, the sour look on her face while performing the Charleston would be indicative of the duality of man, or something.

7. Peter Dinklage

Because he’s so short, you see?

Inspirational Sports Movies For Guys Fri, 08 Jul 2011 01:42:19 +0000 Breakstudios If you're a real man, then grab a few beers, sit back and root for the underdog.

The post Inspirational Sports Movies For Guys appeared first on Screen Junkies.

If you woke up today and lost your job as a taxi driver, came home to find your car repoed and learned your girlfriend was moving out, you could either join the army or unwind with some inspirational sports movies.  Women might have The Joy Luck Club, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and a host of other feel-good movies, but guys get to choose between war movies, gangster flicks, porn and inspirational sports movies when they feel like they need a good cry.  So if you’re a real man who just had a bad day, then grab a few beers, sit back and root for the underdog.



Rudy, shorter than the whole Notre Dame football team

Most believe that Sean Astin’s career highlight was when he played the part of Samwise Gamgee in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. While it may have been a cinematic masterpiece, who would want to be remembered for being a bungling barefoot hobbit? If he was Frodo Baggins perhaps but that coveted part went to Elijah Wood. No, Rudy is clearly the superior project for Sean Astin. True, it was a very similar role. Astin was small dude who experienced incredible trials and adversities, overcame great odds and came out victorious. The main difference is, instead of helping defeat the evil Dark Lord Sauron and preserving all of Middle-Earth, he gained admission into the prestigious University of Notre Dame, became a practice player, and managed to play a home game as a member of the regular Notre Dame football team. After achieving all of that and earning a college degree, the saving the Middle-Earth deal doesn’t seem too important, does it?

Kate Bosworth getting some pipeline

Blue Crush

Yes, girls kick ass at making inspirational sports movies also, and Kate Bosworth as surfer chick Anne Marie is pretty hot in a bikini.  There is some plot stuff  in Blue Crush about a woman gaining status in society by marrying a wealthy man that draws on Edith Wharton novels, but we suggest you focus your attention on the ferocious waves of the North Shore Pipeline.  Without spoiling the end, the inspirational part of this movie comes from Anne Marie finding the confidence within herself to beat the demon’s of her past, and that is what makes someone a winner.


The Karate Kid

Ralph Macchio punching Pat Morita in catcher's gear in Karate Kid

Don’t even bother with the rehashed 2010 version. Although The Karate Kid of 1984 may have used the same Rocky formula where the underdog finds it within himself to achieve the unachievable, the film is unique in its own right and featured characters moviegoers loved and cared about. Who wouldn’t want to train under the venerable Mr. Miyagi? Who didn’t cheer for Daniel Larusso as he crane kicked the tar out of his bully adversary? And what warm-blooded guy didn’t think Elizabeth Shue was incredibly hot 27 years ago? That in itself is enough to earn this old gem a slot.



Gene Hackman huddling in Hoosiers

Set in rural Indiana, Hoosiers tells of an unlikely small-tow high school basketball squad that beats the odds and that makes the state finals in the 1950s. Gene Hackman is clearly in his element as the fiery, school head coach while Dennis Hopper lends his considerable talents playing the part of Shooter Hackman’s drunkard assistant coach. This film isn’t just inspirational, it is a true David versus Goliath tale. Do yourself a favor and purchase a copy to keep in your collection of manly, guy stuff.



Michael Caine, Pele and some other guy beat the Nazi's

Allied POWs agree to play soccer against the vaunted German National Team in wartime Paris. As the Allied players train for the exhibition match, the local resistance work with British officers to help the team escape.  With the score tied at halftime, the ragtag team gets the chance to flee, but instead opts to play the entire match against the Nazi scum. Sportsmanship!  A little dated if you ask me but it certainly deserving to be included in this inspirational sports movies for guys list. The movie even boasts a true all-star cast with film and soccer greats alike working hand-in-hand to make Victory a success.



Rocky beating his meat

Forget Rocky II through Rocky V. You can even forget about the relatively recent Rocky Balboa. If you want the best among inspirational sports movies, pick up the original Rocky. You have a small-time pugilist who gets a crack at a world title thanks to his monicker. To prepare for the fight, The Italian Stallion trains with an old-school gym owner who gets him into tip-top shape. He enters the ring and much to everyone’s surprise, goes the distance against the champion and loses only by a close, split decision. The ending is simply perfect. As the results are being read, Rocky and the love of his life embrace and profess their love for each other, not caring about the outcome of the fight.  Rocky shows us success in life is not so much about winning, but in having the confidence to take a shot at life and give it all you have.
