So, to save time: Casino is the story of real people in a real town at a real time. In the early 70s, Las Vegas was a town where small-town hoods could make big-time bucks, on either side of the law. Small town gaming enforcement commissioners, state senators or small-town hoods, it made no difference.
After "Casino" I was outside the movie theater waiting for my usually late friend Ryan to meet me there. I noticed two guys and a girl in the parking lot drinking beer.
They seemed pretty drunk but I thought nothing of it as they walked into the theater. Finally Ryan arrived and we decided to see "Casino" a story about the mob in Las Vegas.
After the movie we walked out and sat on Ryan's car to have a cigarette while we imitated the gangsters from the movie.
I noticed one of the guys I had seen before the movie over by my car urinating on the bumper. Just then his buddy from inside the car asks me if I have a problem.
I say no I don't but I would if there was pee on my car. I said it's cool, there's no pee on my car, it's pretty damn disrespectful to be pissin' on someone's car. And with that it was over I walked away with Ryan who had joined me back to his car.
On the way over to his car I mentioned to him how I wouldn't have had that attitude with they guy if we hadn't seen that type of movie. I guess the fellow in the car still thought I had a problem because he pulled his truck up, got out, and got up in my face. What were you sayin' to your friend just now?
Listen man, I said, it's cool, there's no pee on my car! Well I think you two still gots a problem over here. With that he proceeds to throw one of their empty beer bottles on the ground and then one at my car.
We argue some more and then his friend gets up in Ryan's face. Just when I think this guy is calmed down he goes over to my car and pushes a shopping cart into the right rear quarter panel.
By this time I had lost it, this guy was going down. I went to my car and started to get my baseball bat out from the back seat.
I was ready to smash his brains in, or his car. They took off and headed out of the parking lot. Ryan yelled for me to chase them and I was ready.
It took a few extra seconds for my chevy caprice to start but I was soon speeding behind Ryan in pursuit of the two drunks. We followed them at a high rate of speed for some time until they pulled into an apartment complex. They made a right turn at a small divide in the complex and stopped by a mailbox.
Ryan, who was still in front of me went left and I pulled up to the stop sign.
When they saw us they exited the car and started running towards me. I could think of nothing else to do but hit the gas, so I did. The boys jumped out of the way and kicked my car on either side as I sped by. Now I was really pissed, I looked behind me and saw that they were coming again.
Noticing that the driver had left his door open when he had hastily gotten out of his car, I took off for it.Saving Private Ryan Captain Miller () Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation Woody Check out our guide to horror, see what's happening at the Toronto International Film Festival, and more.
