The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day! Come out to play-ay!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

I am now pissed off at myself of using the “Can you diiiiig it?!?” headline for a previous Warriors Pic, but no time for regrets! No looking back, only way is forward, right?

Besides being one of the most badass movies ever made, The Warriors is a great snapshot of a time and place. The place being the dirty, gritty New York cityscape and the time being the late ‘70s. Sure, I doubt there were Marilyn Manson looking fuckers in baseball outfits and white face paint roaming the streets with baseball bats, but given what I’ve seen of that time period I wouldn’t rule that out. The world would be a much cooler place if there were is all I’m saying.

I love the melting pot feel of the movie. There is no color in this movie, the gangs as multi-racial as they can be without even commenting on it. That’s just the way it is. If you’re bad enough to cut it that’s all that matter.

The Warriors is awesome and these pics look just as I’d expect BTS pics from this film to look: shot by a friend of a friend of the producer. They’re not glossy, not professional, but the moment captured is pretty outstanding, one of the more iconic scenes of all time. Can you dig it? CAAAAN YOU DIG IT?!?

 

 

 

 

Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic is very dangerous. You go first!

    Fear the Hollywood Delusion!

    by TheNipplesofGodReturns

    Harry Potter, I have Never seen any of the movies, I have never read any of the books.... But I know who he is. I know what he looks like, I know he is a wizard of some kind . I even know his parents died... Why do I know that? (some people would ask) Because people can't shut the FUCK up about it!!.. My mom and sister idolizing This Tool of the Antichrist! makes me sick.. Yes that is right..... Hollywood is a tool of The Antichrist! Who happens to be Donald Trump( or possibly Gary Busey.) But most likely Donald Trump.. His goal is to instill upon you false Hopes and Dreams.. Most all the movies coming out from now on are Epics of False Hopes and Dreams.... which will all be tied together For the one movie with the most false hopes and dreams Ever to be created SUPERMAN!! Even Television, Viral marketing, Advertising, They all install you with false hope!! It would be awesome if we could land a Space shuttle on a moving asteroid and drill too 2,000 feat, send a nuke down the hole and blow the son of a bitch To kingdom come!!... But lets be real! The shuttle would be destroyed, the asteroid will hit the earth and a lot of people if not all people will be wiped off the plant As easy as we would erase a chalk board.(not saying that's gonna happen) it's just a example. The rich people, Governments, and Hollywood... That's right! Directors, Producers, Actors, Executives, ex...... All know of this, and have tickets to a under ground strong hold that will protect them. They most likely paid millions for there tickets, for them and their family.. (but they don't realize that this is not a movie and they will live to face a army of Gary Busey clones) Also having money is going to mean Dip shit after the world blows to hell and you are living on a apocalyptic world of fire and ice...... HAVE FUN!! Prepare your self's Not for HOPE! But the truth On 12,22,12 The world will face some kind of disaster, tragedy, on a scale never before seen by modern man.... and there will be no SUPERMAN....... there to save you. YOU WERE WARNED

    YES!!!! And Sorry Quint......

    by SobchakSecurity

    Aw man, awesome,awesome,awesome! Love The Warriors, and love these pics!!! I from now on when I know what the behind the scenes pic of the day is from the hint, I won't say what it is to not ruin the surprise. And no remake, and that "director's version" that Walter Hill came out with, is crap. Warriors was fine as is, and he has to go and pull a George Lucas. But yeah,now I want to go and watch the warriors.

  • March 28, 2011, 5:22 p.m. CST

    Hey, wasn't one

    of the Warriors also on 3 2 1 Contact on PBS? I could almost swear it was the same guy.

    dexter's old man was cool

    by Seth Gecko

    James Remar is a legend. He was excellent in this film as the rival leadership contender. As Dexter's old man he oozes empathy for a son who is clearly different. In Jericho he was bad ass but was always wishing his daughter was by his side. The Warriors is one of the greatest cult films ever made.

    RAIDERS is one of my favorite movies of all time, but...

    by CountryBoy

    ... I always felt it went downhill a bit after they found the Ark. Up till then, the two sides were strategizing and battling each other, there was a story to it; after, it was just a long chase. Still a masterpiece, obviously; but it went downhill a little.

  • March 28, 2011, 6:53 p.m. CST

    Fuck Tony Scott's remake..

    by SubliminalJones

    That dotty old bastard has stated he wants to shoot it in LA and use actual gangbangers(whom he affectionately refers to as "the lads", like they were Spanky and Alfalfa stealing apples) for the majority of the roles. Yeah, let's embolden ignorant criminal human filth who are so stupid they can't go a week without blasting some old lady walking to church, or a baby in a carraige on a porch, instead of erasing the like-minded piece of shit they were actually gunning for. Let's put them on the screen in one of your typically shallow, two hours wastes of time and make them stars. His "dream shot" is 100,000 real crips and bloods together on the Vincent Thomas Bridge. On the day they shoot that scene, I hope someone with a surface to air missle laying around has nothing better to do. I'm sure good old Tony might be singing a different tune if one of his precocious little street urchins jacked his Mercedes and shot his wife in the process.

    Yes he was. Marcelino Sanchez played Rembrandt, in the film, and also did 3-2-1 Contact. He also had a bit part of a parking attendant in Hill's 48 Hrs. He died in 86 at the age of 28.

    Warriors...come out and plaaaeey-a!

    by vettebro

    Great movie. Walter Hill was the man during that period. You couldn't go wrong with his movies at that time. What the fuck happened to Hollywood now a days?

    Why have all of the 70's "Movie Brat" filmmaking posse...

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    ...decided to mutilate their classic films with needless re-edits and CGI enhancements? The only director of that period who hasn't mucked around with his back catalogue has been Brian De Palma.

    If you are a fan(as I am), play the game...

    I've waited decades to kick the shit out of Baseball Furies in my sweaty leather vest. A great game. It retains the very surreal vibe emanating from the flick.

    D12'S VIDEO FIGHT MUSIC IS A NICE HOMAGE TO THIS MOVIE

    Decent song, coo' video, too bad it didn't do that well because supposedly it was right around 9.11.01 and people weren't feeling it at that point.

    Re: the_choppah

    by MakNeil

    What you say about the Director's Cut (otherwise known as the version that Walter Hill supposedly intended) of The Warriors isn't quite true. That's because what matters most is that the version of the film that we all know and admire was such a remarkable, iconic film that most fans probably look upon what Walter Hill did with the film later on as revision for revision's sake. The important point is that if the later version–complete with cartoonish (though what came to mind for me was Ralph Bakshi-like rotoscoping) transitions and all, were in the original film (as Walter Hill seemingly wanted) you would probably feel the same way about them as you do about what most people consider to be the definitive version of the film.

    by MakNeil

    Not quite sure of what you're implying about the gang members being played by dancers because I am not sure why it matters. Or that it doesn't take anything at all away from a masterful film.

    Finally saw this six months ago...

    by Shut the Fuck up Donny

    Alas, I saw the "comic book version" well before today's warning by the_choppah. Perhaps future generations will heed his wisdom and AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE. I've admittedly never seen the non-special edition, but I'm pretty confident it's not nearly as jarring without the "interludes" (they completely take you out of the movie), and assumes the viewer isn't a moron that needs the narrative spelled out for him in each scene. That being said, I can easily see why it's a cult classic. I really need to watch it again when I can get my hands on a good copy.
