First Poster For THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG Starring Ryan Kwanten

Here is the first poster for THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG starring Ryan Kwanten, Sara Canning, Will Sasso and Catherine O'Hara.

Magnolia Pictures will release THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG on iTunes/OnDemand February 6, 2014 and in theaters March 14, 2014.

Leo Palamino has dedicated his life to what some may call impossible dreams. At least his ex-wife Julie would call them that. But Leo is an expert at not listening to her criticism or anyone else’s for that matter because Leo is a stubborn romantic... An idealist. A dreamer. And to dream big, impossible dreams you can’t listen to the people who tell you that’s what those dreams are.

It is precisely this refusal to listen to criticism that drove his ex-wife Julie to blog about Leo’s flaws as their relationship broke down. A blog... called Why You Suck that would become a cultural phenomenon. And so when we meet Leo Palamino, he is a romantic dreamer, a dedicated writer, a dishwasher in a tourist trap, and a celebrity...

A man famous for his flaws.

Then one afternoon, as the very dejected Leo watches Julie being interviewed on a talk show about her upcoming book, he lays eyes on the woman of his (impossible) dreams... COLETTE is on her way into a wedding across the street from Leo’s house.

Her wedding.

2 Teaser Trailers For Transcendence

Wally Pfister’s old mucker Christopher Nolan released a teaser for his new sci-fi last week and now it’s the turn of the protégé to step up to the mic. The DP-turned-director is taking a similarly elliptical route to promoting his movie debut, Transcendence, taking a leaf out his Nolan’s book to show a little ankle but not a lot else. From these two new trailers, though, you should get a flavour of what to expect: something cerebral, sweeping and just a little sinister. The first is narrated by Morgan Freeman – yes, Professor Voiceover himself – and the second by its protagonist Johnny Depp.




Depp stars as Will, a computer scientist deep into researching the singularity – the point at which artificial intelligence overtakes human and the two begin to merge. From the sounds of the film, that last part is taken literally here, as an incident forces Depp to upload his personality into the mainframe after anti-technology activists attack him.

Unhung Hero DVD Review. Does Size Matter?

Unhung Hero DVD Review
By: MattInRC

Does size really matter? Unhung Hero seeks answers to the eternal question.

Did you see the embarrassing YouTube video of the guy who got his wedding proposal rejected at a UCLA basketball game? The poor dude is Patrick Moote, and the reason for the rejection was later painfully revealed: he suffered from a small penis. This soon spread across the Internet and to talk shows, making Moote a bit of a celebrity. Determined to find out whether he was in fact too small, the actor/comedian set out on a world-wide hunt for answers. He starts at his Pacific Northwest hometown, where he shares the bad news with his parents, moves to a urologist who prescribes a regiment of pills and a pump, and eventually finds himself in Papua New Guinea and Korea to entertain some very unconventional measures. Moote is pumped, pilled, drinks strange concoctions, and later considers injections and surgery to change his length.

It's an uncomfortable subject to be sure, especially when the central message of the documentary is that most women want their men to be hung, and that they will ultimately seek a more endowed male at the expense of smaller men. Whether true or not, Moote struggles to identify whether he needs the change to find true happiness, and whether a documentary about his search is really necessary. Unhung Hero contains just enough science and pretty animation to feel relevant without being too heavy or looking too pre-planned; but its 'be yourself' advice is really what he should have pursued all along, rather than taking a big trip seeking quick fixes. In the end, it was nice to see Moote hook up with a new girl, someone who obviously likes him for more than his perceived issue. The larger discussion - whether women and men have unrealistic expectations based on their exposure to porn - is an interesting one to consider. Hero only scratches that surface, but perhaps such a humiliating premise is needed before audiences can begin a dialogue that's been necessary for quite some time. For now, Unhung Hero is decent filler if you come across it but we'd suggest to wait this one out until it arrives on Netflix. It's unrated and has a runtime of 84 minutes.

Inside Llewyn Davis Review. Isn't Terrible, But It's Far Less Than We Had Hoped

Inside Llewyn Davis Review
By: MattInRC

Inside Llewyn Davis is your typical recent Cohen Brothers flick, which is why we don't like it.


The Cohen Brothers are certainly Hollywood's version of the lone wolf. Fiercely independent storytellers who refuse to follow convention, the duo write and direct their productions, a formula which has yielded tasty treats over the years. Fargo and Barton Fink are generally in most people's top 50 movies, while No Country for Old Men has to be on the 'I've seen it once' list of many. Unfortunately, more recent releases have not captured that energy or quirkiness, and Inside Llewyn Davis - while not terrible - is far less than we had hoped.


The 1960's singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is grumpy and bitter, stuck in a dead-end performance at a local Greenwich, New York club. Davis is experiencing a serious identity crisis, having recently dealt with his singing partner's suicide and struggling to set out on his own. The folk scene at this time is made up of an odd collection of barber shop quartets, medieval instrumentalists, and singers like Davis, whose arrogance and nomadic lifestyle have burned many bridges throughout the city. None of them is more upset than Jean (Carey Muligan), whose one-night-stand with Llewyn has produced an unwanted pregnancy. Rather than try to raise the child with Jean, Llewyn's arrogance and poor judgement continue to upset his career and personal life.


Throughout the film, his attitude yields nothing but bitter fruit: a studio gig with fellow singer Jim (Justin Timberlake) is productive but Llewyn squanders the cash to pay for Jean's abortion, a friend's cat escapes the apartment after he crashes there, forcing him to scour the streets for a replacement. He heads to Chicago to meet with publicist Bud Grossman (F. Murray Abraham), whom he's convinced will help revive his career; along the way, he meets the bulbous druggie Roland Turner (John Goodman) and the oddball driver Johnny Five (Garrett Hedlund). Faced with the prospect that his career might be over and having used up all of his sleeping arrangements, Davis must decide if he will return to the Merchant Marines or stick out yet another gig at the local club.


To say that noting happens in Davis is to give insult to the word. We get that the Cohen Brothers love to make oddly-arranged films, but they also seem to forget that movies need lead characters and situations to which audiences can connect. Davis is thoroughly unlikable, arrogant and full of himself, and willing to use others while ignoring the most basic needs of others. The script has a decidedly shallow nature to it, from the sailor-mouthed Mulligan to the drugged-out Goodman and the mumbling Hedlund. In the latter case, we could literally not understand any of his dialogue, which stopped being funny or unique soon after he appeared in Act 2. We couldn't generate empathy for any of the characters, a fact that perhaps the Cohen Brothers had intended. But their script is so devoid of any depth that watching the slow toilet swirl that is Llewyn's life gets very old, very fast. Again, we don't mind seeing more realistic stories being told around Oscar season, but this one just didn't connect.

Its only redeeming feature is the soundtrack, performed exquisitely by Isaac and others; in particular, Isaac shines each time he picks up his guitar, as if the two were made for each other. This angelic glow (and our tacit approval) quickly subsides though once the music stops and the Cohens attempt to pick up the story again. We're beginning to think that their classics O Brother, Where Art Thou and Barton Fink might represent their best work, possibly demonstrating that their best days might be behind them. At least those went somewhere and had some sense of direction. Spending a week with Llewyn Davis is a tedious exercise indeed.

We know that critics are raving about its merits, but we just don't see why. Inside Llewyn Davis is unlikable, brusque, and entirely too rough around the edges for us to recommend it. We've not seen a film like this in 2013, one that embarks upon a great idea but makes no headway towards that goal. In fact, the elliptical storytelling and self-deprecating humor achieves nothing but to confuse and bore mainstream audiences. When Llewyn callously abandons an orange tabby locked in a cold car with no keys - a cat he put there in the first place - our test audience made a collective groan, as if they (and we) suddenly had abandoned Llewyn at the same time. From there, it was all downhill; and while it might strum and sing its way to Oscar glory, that doesn't mean we're on that bandwagon. Inside Llewyn Davis is rated R for language and adult situations and has a runtime of 105 minutes.

American Hustle Review. Proves Hustling Can Be Sexy, Even If You Might Need A Shower Afterwards.

American Hustle Review
By: MattInRC

David O. Russell's American Hustle is smart, savvy, and an Oscar contender waiting for the call.


With so many films this year about double-crosses, you might have become desensitized for them around Summer: Iron Man 3, 2 Guns, The Counselor and at least 5 more all explored the concept, each with mixed results. The problem with the genre is its propensity to get so convoluted that the story leaves audiences wondering if they had just been fleeced of their hard-earned cash. Luckily, best of the them - David O. Russell's American Hustle - comes out just in time to right the ship for Oscar season.


When we first meet the 1978 con-artist Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), he's engaged in a serious combo-over, readying himself for the biggest swindle of his life. Arrested by the FBI for fraud, he and faux-British sidekick Sydney (Amy Adams) are strong-armed into catching New Jersey politicians who are taking bribes. Their relationship - all built on lies - begins to grow, quite against the wishes of Irving's wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence), whose mental instability creates instant drama between the three. But the con soon turns dangerous as the mafia gets involved, threatening to undermine Agent Richie DiMaso's (Bradley Cooper) entire operation. As the double-crosses begin to pile up, Irving and Sydney must decide their allegiances, both to each other and to the cause.


Loosely based on the ABSCAM case of the 1970's, American Hustle's characters are obviously unbalanced, fed by the coked-up confusion of that era, which Director Russell makes sexier and slimier each time Adams dons a new vertical-cut dress that shows off her breasts or butt (and sometimes both). In fact, Adams is as naked as she can be without actually being so. This is a movie fixated on the importance of shallow surfaces, with every character masquerading as someone else, hoping to get their 'payoff.' As a result, everyone in Hustle is afraid of something: of Rosenfeld being outwitted, Syndey of poverty, and Rosalyn of abandonment. Each of them have something immediate and important to lose, and this drives them to act in increasingly diabolical and desperate ways. A fem showdown in a hotel bathroom turns into an unexpected smooch between our leads, while Richie's secrets force him to live an increasingly-destructive double life. There is so much enjoyable mystery going on here that one might emerge from the theater struggling to keep all the pieces together, but actually feeling good for the experience.


This is the insanity - and sick hilarity - behind Russell's masterpiece, pitting our characters in a growing web of crosses and double-crosses and led by some of the best performances of the year. Russell isn't here to tell historical fiction: he's much more concerned about character interaction, and that plays well with the cast he's assembled. Adams and Bale make a great con team, with Bale literally transforming for the role by adding 40 pounds and a combover from Hell. Lawrence, who keeps adding to her impressive credentials, shines with her Jersey Shore drama and wild hair styles. Even Jeremy Renner - who plays a passionate Camden mayor - gains our affection as a leader desperate to revive his decaying city and thus ready to court the most unsavory characters if needed. Cooper is also enjoyable here as an agent who's in over his head, unaware of the con Adams is running on him in an effort to gain some needed leverage in case the scam goes south. Our Oscar Christmas present includes two gift-wrapped cameos, only adding to the ridiculous nature of Hustle, with Russell's frenetic shooting style and Writer Eric Singer's profanity-laced script serving equally effective means.

Some critics have complained that American Hustle is too long, but we believe that a story will take the time it needs to sell itself (provided it's been properly edited), and so its 138-minute runtime feels adequate to the task. A sleazy combover double-cross that works on almost every level, this is certainly an Oscar contender, even if audiences might feel they need a shower afterwards. American Hustle is rated R for pervasive language, some sexual content and brief violence and comes highly recommended.

Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom Review. We Had Mixed Feelings

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom Review
By: MattInRC

We have mixed feelings over Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and here's why.


If you're a fan of historical drama like us, movies like Lincoln and Elizabeth are must-haves, content to show us pivotal moments instead of epic re-tellings of our titular hero's entire life. Films like those seemed like good ideas growing up, but now they feel too compacted, unable to spread their wings to tell a deeper story. Such is the case with the Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, a film that looks and sounds amazing, is filled with excellent performances, but struggles to cram in every important moment behind the history of a complex man.


We first see Mandela as a boy entering manhood during an ancient African ceremony in which he paints his face white then runs with other boys into a lake to wash the color off. This theme of rebirth will be repeated throughout the film, as an older Mandela (Idris Elba) becomes a successful but idealistic lawyer in 1940's South Africa, then joins the ANC, marries fellow freedom fighter Winnie (Naomi Harris), and is unjustly arrested and imprisoned for 27 years before becoming a voice for an entire movement.


Elba inhabits the role in a way few have, from his aging but upright stature to his perfect cadence. Elba is a personal favorite of SJF, and in Mandela he makes the role his own and wins our attention early on. Harris is fabulous as the fiery Winnie, who struggles to balance her wishes for a free South Africa with her husband's return to her life after his release. Her breaking during 16-month prison term alters her life forever, and we empathize with Harris's portrayal and the militant person she becomes. The problem with the film arises here: Harris has time to evolve her character, given just a few events such as the imprisonment, her divorce, and the movement itself to craft the image. For the equally-excellent Elba, he's given too much to do by Director Justin Chadwick and Writer William Nicholson, who based the screenplay on Mandela's 1994 autobiography. Elba is thrown into the turbulent struggles in South Africa without a satisfying reason to do so, becomes a freedom fighter for a brief period before his wild ride through imprisonment and release. It all feels terribly rushed, especially during Act 3 which feels more like a sprint to cram more events into the narrative.


Surprisingly, Nicholson does reveal a darker side of Mandela as both a womanizer and divorcee, ill content with Winnie's growing radicalism and struggling to adjust to life outside of prison. Here again, Chadwick misses the point of Mandela, taking little time to develop the relationship with his children upon his release and the general human element behind the man. Except for one prison scene with his daughter - which we found poignant and beautiful - we never learn how he adjusts to life with children, nor how they are affected by his growing popularity. Sadly, we don't see Winnie much past their divorce, leaving that excellent performance off the table and focusing instead on Mandela's incredible rise to the Presidency in 1994. Nicholson does paint a pretty picture, complete with great panning shots of South Africa, the gritty town life of Johannesburg, and the lavish palace of President DeClerk. Composer Alex Heffes inspires us with some of the best soundtrack music of 2013, weaving both traditional African music and symphonic melodies into a near-perfect mix.

It's hard to emerge from Mandela and not feel a sense of anger towards white South Africans of that time, nor to be moved by the immovable force that was Nelson Mandela. But it's the telling of the whole story, and its need to be so reverential at the same time, that makes us wish Steven Spielberg had slapped Nicholson on the back of the head to remind him of Lincoln's brilliant 'moment in time' narrative. In the end, you're left unsatisfied and clamoring for more about Nelson Mandela, even though Nicholson gives us more than we can handle. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is rated PG-13 for some intense sequences of violence and disturbing images, sexual content and brief strong language. and has a runtime of 139 minutes.

Offical Poster For DreamWorks Pictures’ Need for Speed

The poster for NEED FOR SPEED is here.

DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” marks an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when the authenticity of the world brought a new level of intensity to the action on-screen. Tapping into what makes the American myth of the open road so appealing, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey for our heroes — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, "Need for Speed" captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.

Need For Speed Full Trailer-

The film centers around Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), a blue-collar mechanic who races muscle cars on the side in an unsanctioned street-racing circuit. Struggling to keep his family-owned garage afloat, he reluctantly partners with the wealthy and arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). But just as a major sale to car broker Julia Maddon (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save Tobey's shop, a disastrous race allows Dino to frame Tobey for a crime he didn’t commit, and sending Tobey to prison while Dino expands his business out West.

Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge — but he knows his only chance to take down his rival Dino is to defeat him in the high-stakes race known as De Leon — the Super Bowl of underground racing. However to get there in time, Tobey will have to run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet that includes dodging pursuing cops coast-to-coast as well as contending with a dangerous bounty Dino has put out on his car. With the help of his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.

“Need for Speed” is presented by DreamWorks Pictures, produced by Patrick O’Brien, John Gatins and Mark Sourian, and directed by Scott Waugh. The screenplay is by George Gatins. The story is by George Gatins & John Gatins, and, based on the video game series created by Electronic Arts. The film releases in U.S. theaters on March 14, 2014

Paul Rudd To Play Ant-Man

With Joseph Gordon-Levitt turning his attention to “Sandman,” the “Anchorman 2″ star has landed the coveted lead

After months of speculation, Paul Rudd has landed the lead in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” and is now in negotiations to play Hank Pym, multiple sources have told TheWrap.

Representatives for Marvel and Rudd had no comment.

Edgar Wright is directing the movie from a script he co-wrote with Joe Cornish, and Disney will release the film on July 31, 2015. Kevin Feige will produce for Marvel.

In recent interviews to promote “Anchorman 2″ as well as his recent stint hosting “Saturday Night Live,” Rudd has appeared noticeably slimmer, and sources tell TheWrap that’s because he’s training for the physical role of Ant-Man.

Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have been considered the frontrunners for the coveted role since October, though Gordon-Levitt has appeared in several comic book adaptations and is gearing up for another one in WB’s “Sandman.” Rudd is more of a natural fit for the comedic character, and his “SNL” episode represented a season high in terms of viewers.

Rudd will play a scientist who invents a substance that allows him to change his size and communicate with insects. The actor, who next stars in David Wain’s Sundance-bound comedy “They Came Together,” is repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Josh Gad To Star In Gilligan’s Island Movie

Josh Gad will co-write and star in a big-screen adaptation of Gilligan’s Island for Warner Bros. Gad’s publicist confirmed a Deadline report that the Tony-nominated star of The Book of Mormon and the voice of Frozen‘s talking snowman will pen the script with 1600 Penn writers Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez.

No one is saying which character Gad is keen to play, though. Lloyd and Ross Schwartz, the children of Sherwood Schwartz — who produced the original TV series and died in 2011 — will executive produce alongside Tracey Silvers and Cathy Silvers.

Gilligan’s Island ran for three seasons on CBS from 1964-67. It was the comic story of seven shipwrecked passengers of the S.S. Minnow: Gilligan, the Skipper, the Professor, an actress Ginger, Mary Ann, and millionaires Mr. and Mrs. Howell. Gilligan (Bob Denver) was a mishap-prone doofus who always inadvertently spoiled their plans of escape or rescue.

After the sitcom became more popular than ever in re-runs, NBC aired several TV movies based off the show in the late 1970s and early ’80s.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continue Review. Rip-Roaringly Hilarious

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continue Review
By: MattInRC

The rip-roaringly hilarious Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is the best comedy of the year.


I'll be honest, I'm not a Will Ferrell film fan - his work on SNL is another matter entirely. Ferrell built his career on Celebrity Jeopardy! and Spartan Cheerleaders, but most of his films haven't matched up. Elf was mildly amusing, Blades of Glory disappointing, and Step Brothers was boring right out of the gate. But there was one Ferrell film I'd watch: Anchorman. There, the jokes ran high and fast, like I had entered a slipstream of awesome and Ferrell was my pilot. And even though audiences generally didn't approve (or understand it) at the time, the antics of the Channel 4 news team slowly grew into a cult classic. The 'salon quality' hair, the mustache, as well as the sexual panache of Ron Burgundy was on everyone's quote list for years until his popularity resulted in something that Ferrell promised he would never do: make a sequel. With Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues now both a reality and quite against Ferrell's stance, we can once again enjoy a franchise that still feels ahead of its time, even if its weirdness is sometimes still hard to follow.


After Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is fired and his wife Veronica Corningstone-Burgundy (Christina Applegate) promoted to co-anchor of the evening news in New York, Ron wanders San Diego before he's given a golden opportunity: assist in the launch of the nation's first 24-hour news network. He reassembles the news team of Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Champ Kind (David Koechner) and Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) and they head to New York in a giant bus with Jesus and Ron painted on the side. Their arrival is tainted by the appearance of super anchor Jim Lane (James Marsden), whose good looks make him an instant hit and at the top of Ron's hit list. As the network starts up, Burgundy butts heads with his sexually-aggressive African-American boss Linda Jackson (Meagan Good), while ushering in the modern era of the 24-hour news cycle. After personal tragedy strikes, Ron must decide if he will return to his now ex-wife, forge a new relationship with Jackson, or throw it all away for a baby shark.


Anchorman 2 is at its best when it's about Burgundy trying to come to terms with his new job and Jackson, but Ferrell and longtime collaborator Adam McKay also have some clever things to say about the 24-hour news cycle. Carrell is not nearly as funny this time, except when Kristen Wiig enters the picture as an inept secretary - hers is the Amy Farah Fowler of Anchorman 2 and her 'I like the parts of your face covered by skin' declarations are hilarious. The rest of Ferrell's team of Rudd, Applegate, and Kochener are just as great, although this really is Ferrell's picture. He struts Burgundy around like a mix between a proud peacock and the village idiot who doesn't know that his game wreaks like old socks. When he and Jackson have dinner with her parents, Ferrell plays every race card in the deck to perfection. For most of his films, that sort strategy didn't pay off - here, it's Burgundy that seems to be the difference, and Ferrell plays it to the max.

We understand that the original cut of Anchorman 2 ran an amazing 30 minutes over the current runtime of 119 minutes. We hope that version makes it into the 'Salon Quality' Edition, although some of what's still here is a little weird. Our main beef is Burgundy's struggling with blindness, brought on by a butt-hurt Lane. Frankly, it just isn't funny, and seems more like the part of Ferrell I dislike - the shotgun approach to comedy, hoping that something will reach its target. And while that portion feels oddly out of place, things get funny again just in time for a repeat of the climactic anchormen throw down, filled with enough first-rate dramatic cameos standing in to battle Burgundy and Lane to make it better and more memorable than the first. We don't want to give away all the people who show up, but check out the constantly apologetic Canadian news team headed by Jim Carrey and Marion Cotillard.

Anchorman 2 is the best comedy of the year, reintroducing us to Ron Burgundy and his news team in high style. The addition of Wiig adds a new layer of silliness, while the cameos and skits grow our appreciation for what Ferrell and McKay conceived all those years ago and have nurtured with scotch and lamps and talks about regrettable decisions. This is the kind of film you need to see several times in order to catch all the great lines that emanate from our stars. The Legend Continues gives Ferrell something he never had: a series he can now revisit with hopefully greater frequency. Nine years is too long to away, Ron - welcome back to the tribe. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is rated a surprising PG-13 for crude and sexual content, drug use, language, and comic violence and has a runtime of 119 minutes.

Schwarzenegger's 509 Kill Count All In One Video

With one of the most prolific acting careers ever, you might wonder what Schwarzenegger's cinematic legacy is. It's killing people. Lots and lots of people.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has gone from body builder to actor to civil servant, and then back to actor again. But in all that time, he's most known for the wanton destruction he reaps in his movies. Twins, Junior, Jingle All the Way, and that's just the emotional anguish!

We kid, we kid. Genuinely, though, Arnie's a stone-cold killer, and the following video provides the proof. What you are about to witness are 509 unique deaths in just under a half an hour. So get cozy. We'll be back.

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For THE WOLF OF WALL STREET In Sacramento

Win Tickets To An Advance For Screening For THE WOLF OF WALL STREET on Thursday, December 19th in Sacramento at 7:30.


Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title – “TTHE WOLF OF WALL STREET.”


Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.
