Re: Re: Warriors...
Can you dig it.... Can you dig it... CAAAAAAAAN YOU DIG IT!!!
The chicks are PACKED!
Was this the movie on the road trip? IS that why we are talking about it?
no way papa
i'm bringing it up b/c of wednesday's lovely matchup!
let's do this. now.
Nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide!
Ah I see.
These cats are more like the Orphrans tho.
Now I have to go pop in the DVD!
Shooting Shootin' at the walls of heartache, bang, bang...
oops. Wrong warrior thread.
Gotta love the prom kids in the subway when the Warriors meet up with them.
What a heartbreaking scene!
Warriors....one of the best movies EVER!
That was a good movie?
Good movie about street gangs was the Young Savages. Takes place up in East Harlem Burt lancaster stared as a DA. He was from East Harlem we got our hair cut at the same barber shop.
You know how you can tell the well off people from the poor people who lived in the tenements in Harlem?
Rich ones lived in the front of the building their bathroom toilets were actually in the aprtments.
The poor people lived in the back of the building. Their toilets were along the hall way not in their apartment.
Where were the bathtubs your thinking right?
Rich guys had the bathtubs in the bathroom in the appartment with the toilets.
Poor guys the bathtubs were part of the kitchen sinks part had a metal cover. Take it off the kitcen skink is part of the Bath tub.
So you took your baths in the kitchen.
I don't know if it's the only adaptation of Xenophon's classic, ANABASIS, but it's got to be the best. Willi Heinrich's CROSS OF IRON (book and movie) seems to borrow from Xenophon, too, but the urban US setting of "Warriors" is a more interesting angle than WWII, Eastern Front.
And, in many ways, more frightening.
My favorites were the baseball ball players on skates with bats and facepaint... WTF was that all about?? Great fookin movie!!
cling cling cling
DC UNITED come out and plllaayyeeeaaaayyyy!
YEEAAHH BASEBALL FURIES!
They rocked! Even the way they came out of their HQ, from the basement like eit was a dugout was cool.
They didnt wear skates tho those were the guys in Union Sq. and it was only 1 of them.
for NYC street gangs -
The Wanderers - opening shot of Alexander's on Fordham Road - Da Bronx. That's New York.
Best line - Leave Da Kid Alone.... Ba-Ding, Ba-Dang, boom. Forget about it....
Director Walter Hill(48 HOURS, EXTREME PREJUDICE, STREETS OF FIRE) has always stated publicly that THE WARRIORS was a direct interpretation of Anabasis. Why there's no deluxe DVD of this epic is beyond me.
BTW, Paramount is considering doing a remake of The Warriors. I can't see it. I'd rather they just make a film version of Anabasis.
"You see what happens when you mess with the Orphans!"
Who were those creepy guys that multiplied like the crows on the playground gym set in The Birds, then invaded the football game like the Huns sweeping across Europe? They were the gang everyone feared.
This is what I want for xmas:
Congorilla has that, but it's not on 8track. There was a limited edition set of 8 45" records made out of a calcium pyruvate synthetic wax compound that came in a velvet lined binder with an alluminum pressing cover that made the sleeves look like a lunch box when closed together. It retailed for 69.95 when originally offered. In good condition now it's worth close to a grand. Not sure if he'd lend it to you.
It's bad ass though. It includes a 36 minute instrumental of Joe Walsh's Life's been good to me.
too bad I only have it on DVD, if I had it on VHS...roadtrip flick baby!!!!
If you bring it, I can dub it to tape for the trip.
Though, I think watching "The Warriors" sends the wrong message on the way to an away game. It's a good one for the trip back, perhaps. It's got that near perfect blend of violence, facepaint, 70s-era cheeze, and theme music to keep you in awe on the "come down" portion of the ride home.
beats "street trash" anyday though!!!
i could dub it mysef, but the Macrovision on the DVD ruins the video quality...
Oh my god! I met David Patrick Kelly - the guy who does that great bottle clinking line - last Sunday. Very nice, very intense guy!
Great flick! They oughta make it a musical (just kidding)!
They scare prom kids at night!
It'll be no problem for Jamison to write the music for this one.
Leo writes the songs, I just sing along . Tons of material from that movie.
(though the Ebony, Ivory, over eating in DC one from Sunday was good, but not all of us could see those guys).
Who would have thought that these guys were DC fans?
