the warriors movie

The Warriors, the comic book-stylized film in which a New York City gang tries to make its way home after being wrongly implicated in a key gang leader’s death, celebrated its 40th anniversary this month.

Initially released to controversy due to copycat violence in some theaters during some of the screenings and the burgeoning presence of real-life gangs roaming New York streets, The Warriors has since become a symbol of pop culture iconography both as a cult classic to generations of fans globally and an early template for the kind of action films that mixed comic book narrative and martial arts-stylized fight sequences.

Last week on Gotham, Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) searched for a new Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), and killed as each genius failed. He took drugs to see a Penguin hallucination. Finally realizing he needed a nemesis, he sent a message to the GCPD to smoke out Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), and got Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk) instead. He held Harvey (Donal Logue) hostage, but Fox saved him. Uncle Frank (James Remar) tried to convince Jim to join the Court of Owls to take it down from the inside. The Court replaced Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) with his doppelgänger. Poison Ivy (Maggie Geha) saved Penguin from the river, who vowed revenge.

Last week on Gotham, Jerome Valeska (Cameron Monaghan) was finally revived sans face, after the GCPD chased his face-wearing resurrector around the city. He and Lee (Morena Baccharin) had a cackling conversation about what he’s missed since his death. Barbara and Tabitha (Erin Richards, Jessica Lucas) took out the rest of the heads of the families, as they went further in their “Operation Destroy Penguin” (Robin Lord Taylor) plan. Selina’s mom betrayed her, and she and Bruce (Camren Bicondova, David Mazouz) are on the outs because he knew it. Jerome went on TV and urged everyone to commit crimes. The lights went out in Gotham, as Jim (Ben McKenzie) watched, horrified.

Beware! Spoilers below.

Wintercon 2016: The Warriors Reunion panel

NY Wintercon took over the Resorts World Casino in NYC earlier this month and one of the main attractions was a full-scale reunion for The Warriors, the 1979 film directed by Walter Hill.

Moderated by The Furies (in spectacular cosplay), the arch rival gang of the Coney Island Warriors, the panel welcomed James Remar (Ajax), Michael Beck (Swan), David Harris (Cochise), Dorsey Wright (Cleon), Terry Michos (Vermin), and Thomas Waites (Fox). The panel was entirely Q&A with fans, which was cool since the Main Stage area was packed with Warriors fans, many in full cosplay.

Movie Review: Horns

Review by Yasin Lago

Horns review header

Horns
Directed by Alexandre Aja
Written by Keith Bunin, Adapted from the novel by Joe Hill
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Max Minghella, Juno Temple, Kelli Garner, Joe Anderson, James Remar, Kathleen Quinlan, David Morse, Heather Graham
Lions Gate
Rated R | 123 Minutes
Release Date: Oct 31, 2014 (Limited)

The title of the latest project by Alexandre Aja, Horns, would have you focus on a couple of appendages growing out of a young man’s head. As it turns out, that is the least of his problems. His physical setback is nothing compared to the mental and emotional toll he’ll take before his world (and reality) completely unravels. As circumstances change, our lead goes from being in a dark place to a literal and figurative descent into Hell.

When we come upon Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), life for him has begun to take a very intense turn. His beloved (by everyone) and loved girlfriend and soul mate, played as an ethereal forest nymph-next-door by Juno Temple, has been brutally murdered. Ig is implicated in this and is quickly judged by the entire community as the culprit (with no help from waitress/eyewitness Heather Graham). Now town pariah, he begins to settle into this half self-imposed exiled Limbo for lowlifes when…things…change.

Daniel Radcliffe Horns Header Image

About a year ago we saw the first image from a new movie titled Horns, in which Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe fittingly sported an impressive set of horns on his head. The movie is currently making the festival rounds in search of a distributor, and the first official clip from the movie has been released.

Horns is based on the novel of the same name from author and comic writer Joe Hill, telling the story of Ignatius Perrish (Radcliffe), the only suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend. Never charged, tried, or officially cleared, Ig is looked at through angry eyes from everyone around him, but he’s determined to find whoever is really responsible for the vicious crime and get revenge using the powers of his unexpected new horns.

You can see the first clip from Horns below.

Check Out The First Poster For Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’

Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming “southern” Django Unchained won’t be hitting theaters until Christmas, but in the meantime the Weinstein Company and Columbia Pictures have released the film’s first poster.

You can check it out here below.

No cruddy Photoshop hack work here folks, this is the real deal. Tarantino has spoken many times in the past about his unabashed love for Italian spaghetti westerns and how they have influenced his own style of filmmaking. Several of his recent films, including Kill Bill V.2 and Inglourious Basterds, have worn that influence with pride. Tarantino has even used music score cues composed for the best Italian westerns by the great Ennio Morricone on the soundtracks of some of his past features. Thus, it’s very fitting that the poster for Django Unchained would recall the minimalist movie poster style of the 1960’s when directors like Sergio Leone, Sergio Corbucci, and Enzo G. Castellari were revered as cinematic gods to western fans and young movie geeks like Tarantino who were just itching for the sweaty, bloody thrills they a spaghetti western could deliver without fail.
