Hobo With A Shotgun hits its target 

Jason Eisener strikes gory gold.

Hobo rips shit up.
  • Hobo rips shit up.

For most movies, adjectives like cheesy, offensive and tasteless carry a negative connotation. But this movie is called Hobo with a Shotgun, for fuck's sake, so it'd be a shame if these descriptions didn't apply. No worries there. Dartmouth director Jason Eisener's first feature is a blood-soaked and kinetic exploitation masterpiece, an abattoir for cinema's sacred cows. B-movie A-lister Rutger Hauer is hilarious as a homeless man who enters a violent, corrupt city, pisses off the local crime lords, takes a sweet hooker (Molly Dunsworth) under his wing and blasts giant holes in bad guys. Eisener and writer John Davies introduce several creative strategies for removing heads, limbs and entrails, painting the screen with arterial spray every couple of minutes. With its gory excess and memorably corny one-liners, Hobo is a trashy homegrown treasure.

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
