Goon (2011), starring Sean William Scott, Jay Barushel & Liev Schreiber
 
Hey gents,

It's been out for a while (a little over a year), but if you haven't yet seen "Goon", here's your chance: found it on Youtube, in it's entirety. For free.

No excuses now, cheapskates. Watch it.

Personally i gave this movie 30 mins of my time and i couldn't stand it, don't much care for Slapshot either....hockey movies i enjoy off the top of my head, The Rocket and the 72 series the CBC put on; That being said good find for those interested!

Eh, to each their own.

If we're making a list of great Hockey movies though, Miracle needs to be near (or at) the top. Over-the-top Americana to be sure (typical Disney), but the hockey scenes are without peer (for a movie) and Kurt Russel is exellent.

Youngblood + Slapshot = the Best.

I prefer Youngblood though. :nod:

Smash88 02-05-2013 10:08 AM

Haha Goon had some good parts... I enjoyed it...

CanadianHockey 02-05-2013 10:09 AM

Favourite part remains the Quebec flag.

My fav part:

"I only have two rules: stay the **** away from my Percosets, and do you have any ****ing Percosets?"

Ah yes forgot about Miracle, it was a good one...only complaint there was R. Crowe who i can't stand.

You're thinking of Mystery, Alaska

Tried it but didn't last past 30 min either. He will always be Stiffmiester to me and anything else feels odd.

Silent Knight 02-05-2013 10:53 AM

I thought Goon was pretty bad, not to mention the over the top sexual toilet humour... the kind of stuff seen in other bad movies like 30 Minutes or Less in order to buy a cheap laugh instead of an honest laugh. Jay Baruchel, I can take him or leave him... he was better on Popular Mechanics for Kids. :laugh:

Milan the God* 02-05-2013 10:54 AM

It wasn't a bad movie. I wouldn't watch him more than once or twice, but I wouldn't turn it off after 30 minutes like some of you have.

Inkling 02-05-2013 11:04 AM

I enjoyed it; thought it was one of the better hockey movies around. I got it for free from the Ottawa Public Library, which is another option if you don't want to pay and don't want to watch it on YouTube (and I assume any free movies on YouTube will eventually get taken down).

Beville 02-05-2013 11:28 AM

I quite liked it myself...

Senscore 02-05-2013 11:47 AM

Goon is a solid movie. Not a great one, but good. It's usually difficult to build a good movie around a static central character.

Liev Schreiber was great. You can tell he was having a lot of fun.

Wondercarrot 02-05-2013 12:01 PM

Wanted to like, like most of the people in it. It just wasnt very good.

Yes you are correct i get those two mixed up!

SenzZen 02-05-2013 03:04 PM

I felt like Baruchel couldn't decide whether to make this movie a comedy/parody/drama/dramedy- and ultimately didn't decide.

Wouldn't watch it again.

Admittedly, I had my doubts going in- as I saw Sean William Scott at a bar one time, and he was tiny, and drinking a chardonnay. So I had a tough time accepting him as a tough guy.

Qward 02-05-2013 03:17 PM

I liked it.
I also like Slapshot, Youngblood, Mystery Alaska, Mighty Ducks etc.

Have not seen Miracle.

GK 02-05-2013 03:50 PM

Hate this flick just because of the Doug Glatt's with the number 69 on EASHL. :shakehead

You mean just like how life in a semi pro league is? Dressing rooms and team buses aren't for the delicate crowd.

I saw the movie. I thought it was pretty good.

Same. Youngblood is just hilarious, especially the fight at the end. Miracle is good, but noticing the editing and camera work, they really do make subtle jabs at making the Soviet's the bad guys with "dirty play" in the film. It's to be expected I guess.

Goon surprised me, I went in not expecting much at all, but ended up liking it a lot.
