Second hand bargain: A brilliant film

Published: 5th Feb, 2009

Entertainment can be priceless, right guys!


Look around you, doesn’t something feel different? It’s a recession. The only movers and shakers making any bread in this cold financial winter are the entrepreneurs with street smarts – the dodgy DVD sellers, the back of a lorry ebay merchants, the buskers singing upbeat reggae songs. They’re the guys stashing away the millions. Not the idiots still ironing their suits every morning. Hence, we applaud anyone who can trace down a good bargain in these cruel times. So props go out to our pal Tom, who managed to track down one of the greatest New York street gang films ever made. “The cinema is far too expensive now,” he told us, earnestly, “so I was really chuffed when I found The Warriors on video.” Tom, as you can guess, is one of three people in Britain still using VHS. So, tell us Tom, how much was this antique? “50p!”

Excellent sticking-it-to-the-recession!

Enjoy The Warriors trailer after the jump…
