The movie "The Warriors" was a 1970 classic which starred Michael Beck as "Swan", and James Remar as "Ajax". This movie was the first movie that I can remember where some cities around the country banned it's showing. It showed some great subway scenes of New York City. The fight scenes were good for the 1970s. I would give the movie at least a **** four star rating.

Since seeing that movie, I have published a gang website, and have taken a subway ride following the routes that were portrayed in the movie. All-in-all it has been fun being a Waariors fan.

This is in my top 5 movies of all time probably even in my top 3. Even though they turned out to be whimps The Baseball Furies were still pretty cool.

Devolution here,

The best line of that movie.

"Coney Island has got to be 150 miles from here".

A little over estimation you think?

I checked IMDB...it came out in 1979, not 70. I actually thought it might have been from the early '80s because I just don't remember it being out in the '70s...I must have been busy disco-ing to remember this movie coming out.

I love this movie. CAN YOU DIGGGG ITTTTTT?
Theres talk of a re-make. How dare they!
I only make it out to Coney island about once a year but everytime I'm there I think of THE WARRIORS.
And for me the best line of the movie is the guy clinking the bottles and saying "Warrriors...come out and play-ay!!!!"
(Its on DVD now in case anyone didnt know)

All I can say is "Dont Go"
We cant stop them from re-making em but if we all keep our $10 ticket money and refuse to go they'll eventually stop re-making em!

I CAN'T WAIT FOR 'THE WARRIORS' GAME!! it's gonna rock! especially since it's Rockstar North who's making it - also! the Action Figure company MEZCO is producing some figures based on the movie and they look very cool! check out the website...

Sorry typo - 1979... But accoreding to a Chicago gang member that I authored the website for, the movie was right-on for old school gangs.

He told me that every member in the Warriors he knew a cat just like them in his gang - even Rembrant.!

No man! The video game sounds really cool! They have a chess set out for the Fordham Baldies in the movie, "the Wanderer!"

Don't forget to click on my profile and check out my gang website which I have received a lot of emails stating that this gang reminds them of the warriors.

With respect,

There's a big article and cover story on the Warriors video game in one of those Gaming magazines. Check out your local newsstand. You can't miss it. I don't remember the name of it. I saw it at Borders and Tower Records.

The likenesses of the actors are very close in this game. I sure hope they are getting a cut ($$) of this. I'd be p*ssed if my face was in a popular game and I didn't get paid.

Yep, it's a good year for fans of THE WARRIORS - we have the Rockstar North Game, the awesome looking action figures and not it seems that Paramount have finally granted our wish and are releasing what is called the 'Ultimate Director's Cut' dvd - although no special features have been confirmed, it should be a HUGE improvement over the current release! "Can you dig it?!!!"

You see what you get warriors? You see what you get when you mess with the Orphans.

I love this movie and I'm stoked about the game...as long as it isn't a GTA clone...

I will be picking this game up, it's quite impressive looking. If you can believe it, I actually finally saw the Warriors for the first time earlier this year. I found it kind of cool that the main villain in the movie who offed the gang leader at the rally was the baddie in the Crow. That guy is a master villain.

... and that villain would be 'Luther' of the Rogues A.K.A. actor David Patrick Kelly who also played Sully in COMMANDO.

On a side note, does anyone ever check out www.joblo.com?

Its one of my favourite internet movie sites and runs a feature called the bottom shelf which picks a couple of DVD's people may have seen on the bottom shelf and never bothered to watch, then raves about why you SHOULD see these movies.

I only raised it here because this weeks movies are 2 of my faves...THE WARRIORS and EQUILIBRIUM.

Good work Joblo...

Ya know I just dont get it! My boyfriend loves that movie and I think its uhh kinda dumb. Im sorry, I just didnt think the characters seemed all that believable. I mean I wouldnt be scared of them. Maybe its how the gangs once were but they sure arent like that now. I mean c'mon a gang of mimes????? [Confused] [Eek!] [Confused] [Eek!] Whats that all about? Do they yell when they get "bopped"? Anyway if someone could enlighten me on why it was so great I truly would appreciate it. I know lots of people who think The Goonies stink but because I saw it when it came out it was awesome to me ans still is to this day.

Anyway, can somebody fill me in??
