i only saw the warrirors for the first time last summer and i bloody loved it. it was part of the DLMChallenge. that same weekend i watched near dark for the first time (had a bit of an 80s cult movie weeked) and the great bill paxton was in it,

I'm doing the DLM Challenge this year, so I'm probably going to check out The Warriors as part of it. And now I'll probably add Near Dark to it as well.

I'm doing the challenge again to see if I can beat my last tally, since I wasn't really trying until 6 months in last year. Already got a good pace going and I keep finding insane things to watch on Amazon or Netflix so it shouldn't be too hard.

Speaking of challenges I highly recommend that while completing the DLM challenge that you work in the 52 films by women. I'm find that easier to complete than any other film challenge and it's a great way to support female directors!

I loved this movie, un-ironically. I don't know if its particularly good, mind you, but the visuals, music, and style really hit me hard as a kid when I saw it on local TV. There's little to no logic to the plot and essentially 0 character development - sort of trademarks of Walter Hill, honestly - but the mishmash of B-movie nonsense hit my subconscious in a good way.

The one line in this movie that gave me pause was when Ellen Aim said to Cody, "I hate you for taking money [for rescuing me]." Based on my previously posted theory, I guess it makes sense in terms of "selling out," but in terms of the literal plot of the movie, why shouldn't he take money for rescuing her? Their split was acrimonious, she's with another man, and he seems to have moved on. Under those circumstances, if he's going to put his life on the line to rescue her, why shouldn't he be compensated for that? At least he's cares enough to do something. He could have just said, "Not my problem" and peaced the Hell out.

Possible Omission:

Why has no one brought up the fact that Tom basically doomed this city due to his actions, even though he beat Raven? This gang has already shown that its numbers are way more than the available number of men willing to fight in the city, and Raven has shown himself to be a poor loser. Also this gang is incredibly active at night, so my question is what's to stop them from sneaking back at night and completely massacre-ing this entire city a la Dogville, especially now that Tom and McCoy are gone?

That is usually what's done in most movies where they don't give a shit until money is offered, so this is at least trying to be different by Tom just going "yeah, I'll save her, but you're going to pay me" without any hesitation.

Best instance of a twerpy glasses guy playing a total asshole in an action movie since Clarence Boddicker in Robocop.

Also - not sure if Blake Harris will cover this, but I believe when Rick Moranis appeared on the Nerdist podcast he indicated that when this project was pitched to him, it was right after producer Joel Silver had made enormous money with "48 Hours", and that Silver told him that this would be an action-comedy hybrid that would do the same thing for his career that "48 Hours" did for Eddie Murphy. Moranis did not indicate how much cocaine Silver was on when he claimed this.

As another poster pointed out some of the songs sounded like lost Meatloaf songs. Well at least one of them was.

Wikipedia says: "Nowhere Fast" is a song, performed by Fire Inc. in 1984 for the rock movie Streets of Fire. An alternate version of the song was recorded by Meat Loaf the same year.

Also IMDB says Kathy Griffin is one of the concert goers.


As pointed out in the pod cast the "Battery" takes a real long time to get to. When they left it really seamed like the morning with the scenes in the diner. However, they don't arrive until 10:00 PM at night. I think Ed B Jr says it 10. I know someone did in the pre-rescue scene. That is like a 12 hour trip! Can you imaging having a rival gang from another time zone. We're talking 24 hour round trip to kiss rape some girls. Is there really no place closer?

I think when Rick Moranis says later " just a couple of hours drive.." That line was just add to make up for the night/day discrepancy. But it was morning Dude.
