Who’s seen Into the Storm yet? FANTASTIC movie! I went with a friend to the early movie (noon) and we really didn’t know what to expect. I did see that Fandango rated it four out of five stars so that was a good sign. Well, the effects were outstanding and we found ourselves holding our breath in a number of scenes. There wasn’t just one tornado: it was action-packed with tornadoes! If you like storms, definitely go see this movie. Here’s the trailer:
And then, I went and caught another movie with my late-night friend. Most of my friends are early-birds but thankfully I have one friend who is a night-owl like me. We can call each other at midnight and say, “hey, you wanna go grab some coffee?” and sure enough, we both hop into our vehicles and find some open-all-night diner and chat until the wee hours of the morning. Ya gotta love friends like that!
Anyway, it was “Tough Guy Cinema” night at the Alamo Drafthouse and they were screening a 10pm showing of the classic 1979 movie, The Warriors. Do you guys remember that movie?? It’s kind of a cult classic now.
- “Warriors…Come out to playaaaay” – Those who have seen this flick will know exactly what that line means. In fact the Simpsons did a parody on the scene that is hilarious if you’ve already seen The Warriors:
In case that Simpsons parody didn’t make sense to you, here’s a clip of the movie scene they’re making fun of:
This is such a fun movie. It’s not supposed to be a fun movie, I don’t think, but the acting is just so bad that we laughed a lot throughout the film. It’s a typical B movie. It’s about New York City street gangs in the 70’s. I love how the subways as you see them in the movie are exactly what they were like back in the 70’s. I was actually in New York City back in 1979, the same year this movie was filmed. I remember several parts of the city looking like it does in the movie. All in all, this was definitely a great pick for Tough Guy Cinema night! Here’s the original movie trailer from Paramount Pictures:
Oh yeah, and the music was cool. It was a perfect fade-out with Joe Walsh’s song “In the City“.
Fun day! And I still managed to get almost an entire section of my animal chaplain homework done! Yippee!
