What difference is there between what this Hodgkinson dude asked before his target shoot, "Are those Republicans?" and asking "Are those Christians?" or "Are those Jews?" or for that matter "Are those bourgeoise?" No difference as far as I can tell. But because the demonization has been manufactured by the "in crowd" that will be played down, if mentioned at all. In fact it took a while for it to register on me, just how significant it is that he asked that question before he began shooting. It signifies the complete rejection of American Exceptionalism.

Jesus Christ why?

Also, I heard that The Matrix is going to be rebooted as well. SMDH.

It was announced as a project for the Russo brothers for Hulu but they were busy doing the Avengers Infinity War so it might have been put on the back burner.

The Warriors was one in a series of great movies that Walter Hill directed. Along with "Streets of Fire" and the "Long Riders" it is up there in my top twenty movies of all time.

It has the sensibility of a Western as does most of the work of Walter Hill and John Carpenter. The story is an adaptation of the story of the Greek General Xenophon and the Ten Thousand who were mercenaries who had to fight their way out of Persia after the death of their employer Cyrus the Great.

A cool film and a relic of the seventies and what New York used to be and is becoming again.
