In our Podcast Series Review Avenue Streetlight, we discuss and dissect a different film each episode. We go through the film in depth, discussing the plot and pivotal scenes so fair warning for SPOILERS!
On this episode, the daring duo of the RA Rapscallions Oliver and Sean come out and play with Walter Hill’s 1979 gang warfare picture The Warriors. We venture deep into trivia territory, barely making it out alive after a clobbering of Warriors facts including the real-life controversy it faced upon release, on-set feuds which broke apart the Warriors and changed the course of the film completely and we also somehow manage to get a Robot Wars comparison into the mix. Also, who will emerge victorious as the Warriors War Chief in the weekly podcast quiz?
