From the “Welcome To My Weird Brain” Files…

The movie Batman Begins is on right now. And the scene where Rutger Hauer (Earle) fires Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox). Seriously…what better way to establish him as a bad guy than to have him fire God (aka Morgan Freeman as he was in Bruce Almighty)? Oh boy, Mr. Earle – are YOU going to get yours! You don’t fire God and get away with it!
Then my mind automatically went to one of Rutger Hauer’s most recent movies – Hobo With a Shotgun.

Rutger Hauer in Hobo With a Shotgun
I just LOVE those movies that explain the whole plot/gist of the movie in the title. You know – like Snakes on a Plane? Ugh, don’t get me started on the very misleading titles Monster’s Ball (which is not about monsters or formal balls) and Nightcrawler (which is not about the X-Men character). Then for reasons I can’t explain I thought of The Smiths song Girlfriend in a Coma and proceeded to change the lyrics to “Hobo With A Shotgun.” Hey…don’t ask me to explain how my brain works! It might be a nice place to visit, but you certainly wouldn’t want to live here! 🙂 Behold…my rewritten lyrics to Girlfriend in a Coma (all apologies to Johnny Marr and Morrissey – but this IS just a parody):
Hobo with a shotgun, you know
you know, he’s serious
Hobo with a shotgun, you know
you know, he’s really serious
There were times when he could
Have murdered you
But you know, he would hate
Anything to happen to you
No, he’s not after you…
Do you really think
He’ll shoot you
Do you really think
He’ll shoot you
Do ooh ooh ooh
Hobo with a shotgun, you know
you know, he’s serious
My, my, my, my, my, my hobo, goodbye
RIP Rutger Hauer! You did “cold evil white man” SO well!
