    Thought it was a pretty good movie about the life a junior hockey player in Canada trying to make it big. I loved the new guy hazing by shaving his you know what and taking him out to get drunk before practice the next day.

    Yeah the hockey scenes are in slo motion but for a movie from the 80's with actual actors and not hockey players...what can you expect.

    Definitely liked it though.

    Any other big hockey movies out there or even small budget hockey films that I have missed that are must see?

    I've seen:

    all the mighty ducks
    Slapshot
    Slapshot 2 (ugghh....god awful)
    Miracle
    Youngblood
    The Rocket (French Maurice Richard movie)
    "Mystery, Alaska"
    "Miracle on Ice" (Not "Miracle", and not the HBO documentary - this is the original movie based on the game. 1981, made-for-TV, with Karl Malden as Herb Brooks, Steve Guttenberg as Jim Craig, even George Brett as a Team Sweden player. It's pretty terrible, and I wish I could find it on DVD so I could watch it whenever I wanted.)

      There's hockey in the beginning of "The Cutting Edge" (hockey player takes a brutal hit and retrains as a figure skater).

      There was tv show based around Canadian hockey (MVP) that might be available to watch. It was pretty steamy/soap-opera-y, but awesome. (hmm...now I want to watch it) (not to be confused with MVP-Most Valuable Primate, about a hockey-playing monkey [note: Not about Chris Pronger]).

      Kevin Smith and Ryan Reynolds movies tend to have hockey scenes (as do occasional David Boreanaz things)

          From the old school:

          The Cutting Edge is itself heavily influenced by the 1945 Sonya Henie movie "It's a Pleasure."

          The might also be hockey in the 1947 "The Bishop's Wife" in the Central Park scene, I can't remember. (Aside: excellent movie)

          There's a flashback of watching Hobie Baker skate at Princeton in F. Scott Fitzgerald novel "This Side of Paradise," (1919) but I have no idea whether any of the attempts to film it have portrayed that scene.

          And of course Love Story is about a girl so distraught after her Harvard boyfriend loses a hockey game to Cornell that she dies.

              Went to see Gamer today. It was worth the $6 I guess. Its what you expect.

              Although the teabagging reference was funny. If you play FPS games online you understand, otherwise you will completely miss it.

              I should mention there is a lot of boobs in this movie, but don't get too excited. It's almost all 1 second clips of them. But teens should be pleased.

                  Just the name of the movie makes me not want to go.

                      Normally I would agree...but wow he dropped the ball on this one.

                          I just watched There Will Be Blood. It was good, but the title is deceiving. I was expecting him to kill more than 3 people. That's only 1 murder per hour of movie.

                            Funny.

                            I thought it was good, too. It helped that I didn't have any idea what it was supposed to be about.

                              I watched Men With Brooms last night and thought it was AWESOME and hilarious. and I'm in love with Paul Gross. Just a stupid funny movie. I want the soundtrack, though, and Amazon has it as an import - $37.99

                                I love that movie. Yeah, he doesn't kill that many people, but the end, when he beats the **** out of the preacher kid with a bowling pin, completely makes up for it.
