Hobo with a Shotgun Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

A real low-budget exploitation film would be shot on dingy 16mm, but—believe it or not—Hobo with a Shotgun was actually filmed digitally, using the Red Mysterium X camera system. The filmmakers thankfully stopped shy of adding gratuitous scratches and jitters to the image—the ultimate in fakery—but the 1080p/AVC-encoded image has been given plenty of grittiness and warped colors in post-production. The picture is insanely saturated at times, with a palette of intentionally garish primary and neon colors that burst off the screen. The street graffiti is vibrant and the ample blood is bright Crayola red. Skin tones veer into severely ruddy territory at times, but this is all part of the scheme. For you photographers who know what I'm talking about, the image often looks like cross-processed slide film. This is not a movie you judge by any objective picture quality standards. Still, I think it looks great, and probably exactly as intended. The picture is quite sharp, with exceptionally fine detail visible in Rutger Hauer's wrinkles and ratty flannel clothing. I'm assuming grain was added in post and that this isn't a transfer of a digital-to-35mm print, but either way, it adds texture and warmth of the film, keeping it from looking too clean. Finally, there aren't any blatant compression problems. When I think exploitation movie, I usually think "twice-duped VHS tape," but Hobo with a Shotgun looks excellent in high definition.


Hobo with a Shotgun Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Again, if this were a real '70s exploitation flick, it would come with a muffled, dynamically limp mono track, but that's fortunately not the case. Hobo with a Shotgun gets the now-standard DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 treatment, and the results are generally great. First things first, the score is simply perfect, using wobbly synthesizer arpeggios, square-wave bass, and lots of drum machine tom-tom fills. There's some disco and '70s wah-wah guitar in there too, naturally, but most of the music emulates the John Carpenter-style horror scores of the 1980s. It's awesome, and it sounds excellent, filling all channels. The rest of the track delivers exactly what you'd expect—namely, lots and lots of punchy shotgun blasts, exploding often through the rear speakers. The surrounds are used frequently for effects and ambience, from screams and thunderclaps to the cheering/jeering of Hope Town's twisted citizens. If there's one downside to the near-constant and loud use of the rear channels, it's that the vocals up front sometimes seem too low in the mix. I found myself toggling the volume up and down on a few occasions. Otherwise, no real problems here. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
