Just watched this and it was even better than I anticipated. I believe that this was Rutger Hauer's finest performance. Just a great movie all around.

I don't know about the movie Hobo With a Shotgun but did you hear about that Hobo With a Knife that cut off that old ladies head in Spain today?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I thought it was good enough. I'd rate it as a matinee worth, out of either that or regular or late show pricing heh. There were some nice cameos in it. I think the only reason I liked it, is I knew what to expect going in. But certainly not for everyone.
-A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.
-It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
-The secret impresses no one. The trick you use it for is everything.

See you space cowboy...

What a multicultural story, tommy! Tenerife, Chinese store, British woman, Bulgarian man, Spanish crowd - wonder where the knife came from?

It was originally one of those fake Grindhouse trailers:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LlazPgxKrA
I saw that trailer and thought, "Well, it'd be a fun time."
But now that it's actually been made it's much better than I expected.
Here's the new (real) trailer:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssHEAOrAdCU

Warning (or not, depending on what you're into) I think both of these contain language, gore, and maybe a boob. Don't be mad if there is no boob, I can't remember.

I thought I had posted this link about Hobo a while back, but perhaps not ...

I love the fact that (in the fake trailer) he's able to take out multiple bad guys who are holding hostages! A shotgun is not a discriminating weapon, the shot spreads out and takes out everything in it's range. Only in 70's exploitation flicks (even the fake ones) could this happen.

No, they look like they're being hit with shot!

I think the Ninjustu SUV guy might be related to Hobo, so I'm shuriken tell us.
