Hail the Yeast Lords!

Scanning the film channels the other night I was just in time to see 'Gentlemen Broncos' starting. 

Boy, I didn't see the next 90 minutes playing out like they did.

Here's the blurb...

Benjamin, home-schooled by his eccentric mother, is a loner whose passion for writing leads him on an journey as his story first gets ripped off by the legendary fantasy novelist, Ronald Chevalier, and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town's most prolific homespun filmmaker.

Doesn't sound too thrilling right? But what you get is THIS...

Yes, it really is Sam Rockwell flying a fully grown stag with shoulder mounted rocket pods. And guess what, he's fighting to get his gonads back.

He's lucky to be on the stag because he was here before...

Which actually gave them excellent access to his gonads. 'Damn' I hear you say, 'A man's gonads should be his own! I hope he took fitting revenge!'

Well yes he did, and in part his revenge was aided by...

Yep, a telescopic cannon emerging from said stags poo-chute.
This has got to be one of the craziest films I've seen. The pictures above are from a kind of enactment sequence that runs through the film - they're from the story that young Benjamin writes and which is subsequently ripped off by this cracking parody of a self absorbed scifi writer ("to inspire myself I turn to myself"), Ronald Chevalier. Seen here taking himself very usual...

The official website is here and is well worth a look to give you a flavour of the film

It struck me afterwards that it did to scifi what Zoolander did to modelling. 

If you love films so bad they're good give this a watch - I haven't even mentioned the popcorn balls...the mythical yeast...
And as for what's on the blow dart tips...

Oh boy.


  1. No comments for Gentlemen Bronco's?

    "It struck me afterwards that it did to scifi what Zoolander did to modelling."
