Hockey movies

Recommended Posts

Can't remember if there were any threads on the subject. Did a quick search and found nothing, so here goes...

Watched this last night. It's in Korean, of which I am not nor understand except one word, "parre parre (fast, hurry up}. If you don't mind subtitles, it's a true story and I enjoyed it.

As @ThatCarGuy car said my childhood  was D1 and. D2.  I loved the scene in D1 where they get to bat shit crazy in the pro shop buying stuff.  

And how about that set of green and yellow Vaughn Goldberg had?  Sweet.

That gear was the best part of those movies.  Even as a kid, my ability to endure Disney movies was very poor.

Nice texture on the green parts.  Is that real leather?

I dunno man, I don't blame him...

"Slap Shot, The Mighty Ducks trilogy, Mystery Alaska, Miracle, and The Goon!" We knowwwww alreadyyyy. I am so ready to hear about another hockey movie, this is usually one of the stalest, most stagnant conversations out there. 

Nothing against all those movies, by the way... I love Slap Shot, and the Mighty Ducks will always have a place in my heart. I'm just saying, they're so established that they're barely worth mentioning in a hockey movie thread. It's a given.

Say what you will about a movie about female Korean hockey players, but at least it's something new to talk about.

I'm just gonna get this hateable offense out there: I do not enjoy a lot of the "classic" hockey movies. Mystery Alaska bored me, Goon annoys me, I don't really like the Mighty Ducks, and I've never seen Slap Shot.

Miracle is the only one I can sit through.

Cordura. A proper Vaughn Legacy had Cordura on all the non-ice-contact surfaces. Contact surfaces are Jenpro.

I don't like Mystery Alaska or Goon at all (I turned Goon off after about 20 minutes).

The Mighty Ducks are pure nostalgia for me (well, the first two... the third is pretty rough, even as a tongue-in-cheek viewing). But I'm not likely to sit down and watch them at age 30. Plus, that whole franchise has kinda been 'BuzzFed' to death. "Where are they now?? Look how messed up Goldberg is!! Connie got HOT! Ha ha this guy got an Adam Banks replica jersey!" 

Miracle was a well-done movie, and I think the hockey choreography is pretty impressive. But my high school coach used to show it at Friday night "team meetings" (aka keep us from going out and getting into trouble/getting wasted the night before a game), and that kinda killed it for me. Plus, it is kind of 'motivation porn'...

I love Slap Shot, but I wouldn't say it's a particularly good movie. There's a lot to like ... Paul Newman was a national treasure, the Hanson Brothers are great (I've met 'em, too), Michael Onkean's the man (more for his work in Twin Peaks). But overall, it's a pretty dull, B-grade movie (though punctuated by some truly funny, memorable scenes like the one posted above). I have trouble sitting through the whole thing, which is not usually a problem for me. Having said that... you should really see Slap Shot!

Hockey movies tend to be pretty niche, underproduced movies — and there are very, very few of them. Just think of how many baseball and football movies/shows there are... they're practically genres unto themselves. It's a good reminder that while the NHL is making tons of money and the game is growing, it still lacks to mass-scale popularity that most studios would need to see in order to bankroll more hockey movies.

Edit: How could I forget "Youngblood"? Now THAT movie is great (it's total 80's garbage, and I love it... so corny). There is nothing better than a warm cup of tea with Ms. McGill... though the last time I watched it, I kinda couldn't believe the scene where they initiate Dean by holding him down and shaving off all his pubic hair. Uhh, who exactly is the butt of the joke, there? "Ha ha you have no pubic hair!" Ha ha, you just voluntarily pulled down another guys pants and spent 10 minutes shaving his genitals against his will...

Don't let this turn into the Twin Peaks thread, because I will turn this into a Twin Peaks thread, lol.

Here is my childhood in a single post.

D2 was the first movie I had my own VHS copy of as a kid. I probably wore the tape out I watched it so much. 

Those posters are creepy though lol. Especially what the hell with emilio’s face in the second one. Also the D3 poster is highly misleading as Bombay was not the coach in that one and was in the movie for like 45 seconds lol.

I notice Bauer features prominently in this shot.......perhaps had a sponsorship deal or bankrolled the flick?

I would be shocked if they bankrolled the film. Making a movie — even one like this — is incredibly expensive, and I doubt Bauer would ever expect to get enough ROI from product placement a sequel-movie that is predominantly made for a demographic where there's not a huge amount of interest in hockey (not slighting Korea's interest/ability in the sport, I think it's awesome this movie even exists).

More likely, Bauer supplied the film with free gear to get the exposure (works for both sides — the producers get the 'props' they need for the movie, and Bauer gets some nice product placement). Or possibly more likely, Bauer may have paid for this exposure via a (relatively) small bidding war — maybe CCM and Warrior were willing to pay X amount of dollars, and Bauer was willing to pay a bit more than X dollars. But this would ultimately be a minuscule amount compared to what it takes to bankroll a film.

Lady Gaga's record label might be able to pay a zillion dollars to fund a pointless remake like "A Star Is Born", because they know she's going to sell a zillion records and make a zillion dollars from the exposure a major studio film will garner in the United States. Less inclined to think Bauer could/would do that for a movie like this.

This was a great film, tough to watch because of the ugly history, but a very well made movie.
