Which fight SHOULD have happened, but didn't...

...For me, I'd say I'd have wanted to see the Warriors take on the High Hats.

Other thoughts?

Re: Warrior Game Question

Thank you..sorry about the lack of detail. Yess, it was during the spray competition with the High Hats. I'll keep my eyes out for yellow markers now!

Re: Is the Warriors Sexist?

Ummmm...if ya read the post, you'd see I was talking about the movie, not the game. :) ...My rebuttal to her had the following points: -the Lizzies DID use sexuality to entice the warriors, but this in and of itself didn't denegrade females or sexuality, any more than if other forms of enticement we...

Warrior Game Question

Hey, all.  I realize this should probably go in the game forum, but I haven't got my 10 posts in yet & couldn't find the answer in the search. I'm at the High Hats level with Rembrandt. I run out of paint and then...can't find any more (?). Do I havta mug other guys to get it, is it just on the grou...

Is the Warriors Sexist?

....This is one I've wanted to opine on for a while, but haven't had a chance to until now. I recently finished my MA in Lit, and one of my courses was analyzing American film. In the 12 Week course, the teacher brought in 3 and the rest were brought in by the students (after they were approved by t...

Re: 'Things that remind you of The Warriors Movie?'

...watching a TV movie version of Jason and the Argonauts with my kids on the DVD.  When on an island of women, one of the Argonauts asks their leader: "Where are the men?" Answer:"Off fighting the wars." (Gives smile) ....straight out of the LIzzies---->Cochise: "Where are the dudes?" Lizzie----->"...

Which Warrior Do You Think MOST likely to turn-around comepl

...Hey, all. As I wrote elsewhere, a buddy of mine recently gave me a copy of a book called "The Cross and the Switchblade" after he found out I liked The Warriors. I couldn't put it down, and finished it in a few hours. It's the true story of a naive minister who goes to NYC in the laste 60s, and g...

Re: Swan and Mercy remain a couple after its all over?

.....You know, I looked at one of my older posts on this topic, and I'm thinking of changing my mind. A buddy, knowing how much I enjoyed the film, gave me a book about streetgangs in the late 60s/early 70s called "The Cross and the Switchblade"  It's a true story about a minister who went into the ...

Re: Where were the rest of the Warriors' gang when they fina

....although, if you want a rationale for the film's ending: The meet probably took place on Saturday night.  Even if you're not going to be in Church, there are few places more deserted than a city street at 6 am on a Sunday morning.  The other 110 or so members of the street family (if you wanna k...

Re: favourite brawl

....For me, it's the Punks fight.  I identified with Rembrandt when I was a kid, and since this was the only place he got his licks in w/ the spray paint, it became my instant fave. Heck, it wasn't until I saw the film again in my 30s that I realized he did less hitting than Mercy for the rest of th...

Re: Swan and Mercy remain a couple after its all over?

....I'd like to think so, but don't see it as likely.  Imagine what a hard life they both must have had to be a gang member and a prostitute.  I know, I know, it's only a movie.  But I guess I'm just older now, and because of that I have to see reasons to believe what I'm seeing on the screen. In sh...

....Why didn't Fox SPeak up?

Hey, all. Watching the movie recently, I wondered: Fox saw Luther with the gun at the beginning of the mayhem after Cyrus was shot.  This was the reason that Luther targeted the Warriors. Ok, But: Why didn't Fox say anything to the rest of the team?  If I saw something like that, I'd be yapping it o...

Did Ajax Die?

Hi all.  Saw the film for the first time since I was 11 the other night....with my 13 year old son!  Yep, it's been a while.  Now that I teach History, I have a totally different take on the film, and I like it.  The piece has aged well, even with some of the 70s dialogue. My wife and I have been sa...
