Hobo with a Shotgun – This film stars Rutger Hauer as the hobo and the title of the film perfectly encapsulates what this movie is about. A hobo arrives in a place called “Hope Town”, which is actually not a nice place to live in. Some bad people run the town and the hobo gets a shotgun and starts cleaning up the town by taking out the trash. It is a “B” film and proud of it. This is a film for audiences who liked Grindhouse or Machete, which are perfect comparisons because Hobo with a Shotgun was originally a trailer that won a contest to be included in Grindhouse in the fake trailer section of the film (much like Machete). That fake trailer intrigued producers enough to make a feature length film on it. The film was well received by critics and currently has a 70% positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
The Warrior’s Way – This film stars Kate Bosworth, Geoffrey Rush, Danny Huston and Korean star Jang Dong Gun and is about a swordsman who betrays his clan and heads to a small western town to try and hide. As we all know in movies, you can never outrun your past, and his past catches up with him in this town and all hell break’s loose. The film bombed when it was released in theatres this past Christmas, but I think it will find an audience on DVD because of the interesting premise of it being considered a samurai western.
