Come out to playyeeyay!!"
I just bumped The Warriors up in our Netflix queue. I can't believe Shannon hasn't seen this movie! With it's bright, witty dialogue ("Warriors? You guys are the big dudes, huh?"), stunning costumes (wife-beater tanks were apparently on sale at K-Mart for 10 cents a pack in a wide array of colors), and creative gang names (The Punks; The Rogues; The Rogue Punks) and if you need more than that: a gang of mimes called the High Hats, I can think of no more delightful way to make Lent seem 40 days longer for Shannon.
"CAN YOU DIG IT????
There's also a gang called The Saracens, so it's historically poignant as well! Oh, and Ajax (James Remar) went on to act in Galactica, season 2.0 as Meier, so I'm sure you'll want to see where he started out.
Okay, seriously, I think I've gotten The Warriors thing out of my system by finding that clip at top (I can't count how many times I've quoted that....for no apparent reason, really...) as well as tracking one down of my favorite gang, The Baseball Furies (below.)
