Hobo With a Shotgun

Stephanie asked me to pop in and tell you that she can't blog today because she still has no Internet. She also has no cable, which means, unlike The Guy, she is not watching Hobo With a Shotgun.

"Why?" I asked him.
"Rutger Hauer plays the Hobo," he said, as if that explained it.

Which come to think of it, it did. The Guy is loyal. His favorite movie of all times is Blade Runner, which stars Rutger Hauer. He bought it on video cassette, replaced that with dvd, and, finally, upgraded to blu-ray--before we had a blu-ray player. If there is ever a ten disc anniversary edition, The Guy will be the first in line, if there is a line. Not that I am disparaging Blade Runner. No siree Bob. Aside from the the very pertinent fact that it was a good movie, I value my marriage.

Also, The Guy likes guns. I don't know his views on hobos.

This is how IMDB described Hobo With a Shotgun:

"A homeless vigilante blows away crooked cops, pedophile Santas, and other scumbags with his trusty pump-action shotgun."

Lest you think The Guy has a fixation on Rutger Hauer, let me disabuse you of that notion. He also tracks the actors and actresses from other favorite movies and television shoes--Firefly and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, to name a couple.

In looking up Rutger (I feel comfortable using his first name), I just learned the was in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie). I thought I had learned a little nugget to share with my beloved. But, no. He already knew. Of course.


  1. I am with the Guy - I LOVE Blade Runner. Not because of Rutger but because of Harrison Ford. I adore Harrison Ford. And yes, I am a Buffy Fan and also Charmed. I will be in that ten CD edition line with the Guy if there ever is one. I am sure the Guy has seen Lady Hawke with Rutger, another of my favs.

  2. Oh, yes Lady Hawke and The Hitcher. I have not seen The Hitcher. He says it's scary. He doesn't like Blade Runner because of Rutger. It's the other way around.

  3. I need to watch Lady Hawke again.
    Never seen Blade Runner. But I feel the same way about Colin Firth. I will watch anything he was in. Although, he was never in anything that sounds remotely similar to Hobo with a Shotgun. THANK GOODNESS.

  4. Melanie--Apparently, this move was released to some cable station simultaneously with the theater release.

    I heard that about Colin.

  5. I love Rutger Hauer! And Harrison Ford and Colin Firth...but I luved Rutger back in my high school days and endured many bad movies because he's been in a lot of really bad films! lol. btw, Sean Bean played the same role as Rutger in the remake of "The Hitcher" don't get me started on Sean Bean... ;)

  6. Reina--Remake of The Hitcher? I wonder if The Guy knows. Wait. I'll ask.

    Yes. He knows. Hasn't see it.

  7. Jean and Cheryl, I love Blade Runner too, and Lady Hawke is one of my favorites!

    Melanie, Colin Firth is a given! ;) Just saw that he is the nemesis in the new Dorian Gray DVD with Ben Barnes as Dorian Gray. Must see it!

    Reina, Harrison Ford in Blade Runner is so hot! Sean Bean!! Yes, please. He's such a great actor. I love him in the BBC Sharp presentations, Lord of the Rings, Patriot Games and now Game of Thrones. Woot! (Didn't like the spooky nature of either Hitcher movie though.)

    I've seen both Hitcher movies, Jean. Blech!
