Nordling embraces the stench of HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN!!!

Published at: Jan. 29, 2011, 2:18 p.m. CST

Nordling here.

HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN comes out way too late for me to fully appreciate it. I should have seen this one in my younger days, renting Troma movies from the local Circle K because they didn't have any new releases. I'd pick up something like FAT GUY GOES NUTZOID or SURF NAZIS MUST DIE based solely on the cover, go home, crack open a bag of chips, and let the cheese and exploitation waft over me. But had I seen this film at thirteen, I guarantee you it would have changed my life. And I know all about age restrictions and film ratings and what have you, but I'm telling you, any young teens out there with any kind of love for film need to hit up their cool older cousin and get into a theater showing this movie.

Everyone knows the story of how this movie came to be by now. What's great about the original trailer that Jason Eisener made was that if you've seen it, it really is a trailer for this film. Just juxtapose Rutger Hauer for the original Hobo, David Brunt (who makes a cameo in the new film). Most films don't have nearly the focus that Eisener gave HOBO. This movie knows exactly what it is, and if you've seen the poster or the trailer and see HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN based on those things you really don't have any right to be offended by what passes in front of your eyes in this movie. Nothing subtle about it; you can't say you weren't warned.

The plot's simple enough - a hobo makes his way into a crime-riddled city, gets a shotgun, and takes matters into his own hands. For Rutger Hauer, this performance marks a return to the annals of geek greatness. He plays the material totally straight, and as the film gets more ridiculous around him he quickly becomes the anchor for the audience as we tour through the mayhem. His Hobo has little ambition - all he wants is a lawnmower in hopes of getting a landscaping job, maybe a little money - but as the crime and filth of the streets piles up around him he has little choice but to fight fire with a lot more fire. The Hobo befriends Abby (Molly Dunsworth), the Whore With A Heart Of Gold, as she is pursued by the local crime lord Drake (Brian Downey) who treats everything and everyone like they are participants in the world's sickest game show. His sons help perpetuate the constant carnage in Fuck Town (yeah, that seems to be the name of the town, like I told you, this ain't subtle). Who can stop this mayhem? The only man brave enough - THE HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN.

Carnage happens, people explode, there's gratuitous nudity (really, is there any other kind?), and lots of people die in particularly nasty ways. Sure, the film is shrill at times, but it's supposed to be. The violence is in your face pretty much the entire time, but all the movie asks of the audience is to enjoy the ride, and if you're sitting down to a movie called HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN with full knowledge of the title you're probably already knowing what's going to be in store. The gore is plentiful and the nudity gratuitous, just as it should be. Gore used like this has never bothered me; when it's used subtly like in BLACK SWAN it gets under my skin, but the gore is so over the top here you just have to laugh and marvel at how much the raw meat and corn syrup budget was for this movie. Plus, there are situations that in other films would cause most audience members (at least those with a conscience) to storm out in disgust, but here you know it's all in good fun, whether it's seeing someone's head pop off like a wine bottle cork or it's seeing a bus load of children go under a flamethrower, waving happily at Mom and Dad as they burn.

With the right crowd, the right frame of mind, and a disposition for fun, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN has the potential to rock your world. I don't normally make predictions like this, but if HOBO's not playing to large crowds at midnight screenings within the next five years, a la ROCKY HORROR, there's something seriously wrong with today's youth. And I'm completely serious when I say that this film could really be a gateway for some splatter movie lover out there to decide that they should try their hand in making movies. Hell, Peter Jackson did it. Even Francis Ford Coppola did it. It's bricks like HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN that get laid at the foundations of giant careers; I wouldn't dismiss this movie just because of the subject matter or genre. When a filmmaker hits their target as much as Eisener does with HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, he's one to watch, regardless of the kind of film it is. BAD TASTE led to THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Who knows where HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN could lead?

Nordling, out.

    The word I keep hearing is "Troma."

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    The consistent word I keep hearing from everyone I know who has seen this film is "Troma." The original trailer cut for the Alamo was brilliant. I loved it, but it never made me think "Troma." The trailer I saw for the actual film made me think nothing but "Troma."Now, this isn't a bad thing for younger viewers out there. Troma really did some cool and amazing things in the independent film market in the 80s. "The Toxic Avenger" was a slap in the face to highbrow film making, and it was quite a buzz to many of us. Like the Ramones made kids want to start a band, "The Toxic Avenger" made kids want to make their own damn movie. However, truth be told, most of Troma's output after that was borderline watchable except for a title or two. I'm done with that whole concept of film making, but I've done it a thousand times. Kids today might see this as fresh.

    sadly theres a shit ton of logic behind that. The movie industry is a business, and most people that make movies do expect to make some kind of profit or living out of it. Some directors will make a studio friendly movie, so that they can eventually get the backing and freedom to make a movie that reflects their own unique vision. Of course theres lots of exceptions, theres lots of movies that get made for arts sake, but i believe most directors want to get to a place where they make the movies they love and get a nice paycheck, i.e Christopher Nolan.

    by STICKY WHITE

    usually only writes one sentence replies, and why he gets so defensive and pissy when anyone asks him to explain or clarify the moronic statements he makes. Notice how when he writes anything longer than one sentence they never seem to follow any kind of rational thought process. Like the third sentence won't really have anything to do with the first. It just becomes a jumble of nonsense with at least one reference to something anal. Either the ass itself or what comes out of it. I'm thinking he's hoping it will become his very own AICN trademark or something. To me it just screams FECALPHILIAC.

    I'm sorry, but is anyone else sick of this "hip" kind of movie, where it's silly on purpose and then they say it's because it's a homage to 70's or 80's horror? Don't any horror filmmakers actually want to make horror anymore? Or is our culture now incapable of making something that isn't a patchwork of references to something else? <br><p> This is why I thought Planet Terror was boring and derivative, yet found Death Proof a perfectly good time at the movies. One was a smug little, "look how cute we are" movie basically making fun of a misunderstood genre, the other fucking IS a grindhouse movie, warts and all. <br><p> Parodies are fun every now and then to sort of cleanse the cinematic palate, just to shake things up every now and then. Same reason I'll throw in a Jason movie between a couple Polanski's. But Jesus fucking Christ, I think we'd all prefer the Polanski's!

    when i think hipster movies i think "somewhere" or "the life aquatic". Id say hobo, based on reviews is the opposite of a hipster movie. However i get what sebastianhaff says, some movies try to recycle, or emulate older iconic movies that they know we'll connect with, because they played big roles in our childhood or what not. Its great though when a movie gives us that same feeling we got when we were kids, (experiencing something that hasnt been felt before) without trying to be ironic.

    Who cares? Shouldn't you be watching some Ghost Hunters right about now? Oh, and it's BLU-RAY not Blue-ray as you keep fucking repeating everywhere. Besides, didn't you talk mad shit about not ever buying into the format anyway? Did you just prove what a contrarian doofus your poor mother shat out of her tard launcher?

    Gary Busey should have been in this

    i mean i like Rootbeer Howard, but King Sir Gareth Busey Esq. is a much better and versatile actor, plus his teeth are insane. have you seen them? i strongly believe that they have a mind of their own. |
