I am surprised that there was never a remake of this.. actually, I am glad
I bet every time they sit down to discuss, someone goes, "wouldn't they just call someone on their cell phone to come pick them up?" Modern technology would create all kinds of plot holes.

 
Loved it as a 13-year-old when it came out. Showed it to my 13-year-old a couple of years ago - he liked it, though he definitely thought the roller skating gang and even the face makeup of the Baseball Furies was a little soft.

But his main issue was "So, in all the gangs in all of New York, there's only one guy with a gun, and it's a tiny little pistol?"

You hit on the key to liking this movie, watching it at a certain age.

 
I love this movie, even though it prolly doesn't crack my top 25, but I voted Just Ok. If there was something between OK and awesome I would have voted there.

The Warriors is one of those awesome "decay of the inner city" movies that permeated the 1970s and early 80s. Sure there's some cheese in it....but aside from some of the outfits....it holds up pretty well. Hate to see that rumored Tony Scott one ever make it to the big screen......although if its gritty it might not be bad.

 
I don't know why Ajax doesn't get more love for his role?? If Cyrus were alive today he be widely regarded as one of the great orators of his time. Every time I hear "In the City" I think of this movie.

Warriors on IFC right now. :thumbup: Will be repeated at 10PM EST.
LOL, I watched it last night as well. Still holds up pretty well. I think the music in it is pretty good and helps it hold up. Nowhere to run...

Me too, and was actually able to see the beginning. Seems most of the time I notice it's on it's partway through already. Was nice to see the entire thing.

Really too bad they deleted the original opening (see my post #26 above). Gives a bit more plot backdrop before the big meeting in the Bronx.

 
I was always disappointed the mimes didn't do more in the movie. Would've loved to seen them fight.

"Let's get them! Wait, they appears to be some sort of wall blocking our way!"

 
The leader of the Orphans always looked familiar (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjsEaRqW8JA - 0:32 mark), but can't place him.

Looks like Eric Begosian, but not so via IMDB search. IMDB also doesn't identify which one is the leader. <_<
It is Paul Greco accoring to this site
