I'm having a bad day! Just borrowed my father's hedge trimmers and gone through the power cord.

I hope he doesn't want them back in a hurry!

I am the original Youngblood! [Big Grin] Yeah, kev. Street hockey was one of the best things when we were kids.
Two years with sore knee sounds pretty bad...

That´s what i´ve been doing warrior, watching lots of films. But the fever takes your strength so i feel very tired [Frown]
More reviews coming up though!

Oh man, the ourdoor rinks are all dried up, might have to get some street hockey in to get my fix! Just an obscure question Atomik, were there are any European hockey movies back in the day that were highly regarded like Slapshot, Youngblood, Hockey night? Kev, who was your Racki back when you played?

Don´t remember any, Riptide. But i know this obscure canadian film called The Last Season (1986) which was filmed in Canada and Finland.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0125342/

There´s few finnish actors among the cast and it was released here on vhs. I´m gonna pick it up if i see a copy.

Never heard of this one atomik. Have you seen Goon? My husband and I thought it was really funny. It was written by
Jay Barushel, and he had a small part in it. Sean William Scott and Liev Shreiber starred.

Hey Rip. There was actually a TV series in the 80's called "He Shoots, He Scores"...I remember liking it as a kid, but can't remember any details...may not have aged well?

We didn't really have a Racki for street hockey...we'd generally have 10-12 kids in the neighborhood who were the regulars, and just even out the team based on skill...pretty low key with not much fighting! We were hardcore though. My parents driveway was paved and big enough to play in...my Dad played as well....even made a 3 sectioned back board for the end of the driveway so we wouldn't have to chase the ball as much (a garage on the other end). I have vivid memories of the garage with at least a thousand circles from the muddy tennis ball hitting it so many times (we didn't use the hard orange balls). One certainty in the game...if my older brother wound up for a slap shot...you'd pretty much cover your eyes and privates and hope for the best! [Eek!]

Speaking of Racki though, I'm a die hard Edmonton Oilers fan...and fondly remember the Dave Semenko days ...he was quite the enforcer...

The hockey movie that I remember quite well, which is relatively unknown in the US, is the Canadian Face Off a/k/a/ Winter Comes Early (1971). What I love about it is that I can't help but laugh thinking of the SCTV parody of it with John Candy done years later. Though it was billed as a "Canadian Love Story" in its day, it is now an incredible cheese-fest collection of the oldest, most moth-eaten movie cliches you can imagine:

1. Young Billy is from a podunk town in frigid Ontario. He loves hockey. There are scenes with a lot of snow... (The whole film has that 1970s Canadian film look like the prints were struck from the internegative or something, all white snow and washed out colors.)
2. Billy grows up to be a really good hockey player, so good that he gets a try-out with THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS IN MAPLE LEAF GARDENS. There is actually a scene where his mom kisses him goodbye and puts him on the train to T'ranna, the big city. And there's lots of snow...
3. Billy gets to THE BIG CITY and meets The Coach, played by the late, great Canadian character actor John Vernon--in a turtleneck. (We already know this because in the opening credits it says, "and John Vernon as The Coach." LOL) Added plus: There is great vintage footage of the Leafs and the Gardens from that era.
4. This is all mindboggling for Billy as he has trouble adjusting to life there and on the Maple Leafs. One day, he meets a pretty hippie folk singer. Of course her songs are terrible. They couldn't be more mismatched, but, of course, they fall in love...
5. Billy starts to adjust and be happy, both domestically and on the team, but--and you can see this cliche coming about a mile away--he learns that the young singer has a terminal disease...

Check out Face Off. I promise you that you'll enjoy it but perhaps not for the reasons the filmmakers intended. [Smile]

I thought Goon was hilarious Pittsburghgirl, I believe there doing a second one!

What is Slapshot like with Paul Newman is that a lot of fun?

Not seen Winter Comes Early or The Last Season but both sound good!

Slapshot is even funnier than Goon which is hilarious. It's one of the funniest, best sports movies ever.

I just listened to the Amanda Wyss and Diane Franklin podcast and they both spoke really highly of working with John Cusack and believe that he has mellowed in his opinion towards Better Off Dead now!

Cool links Peter,I'm going to check a few more out at a later time!


Crash I'll add Slapshot to my purchase list as it sounds really great,Is the sequel a classic as well? [Big Grin]

Y'all are welcome. I especially liked the Kevin Bacon one. It's some years old now, but his stories about living in NY in the 80's and early film work was a treat to listen to. The others are good too.... Crispin Glover is pure magic... weird, bizarre magic.

I tried the Diane Franklin and Amanda wuss. I made it through about 25 minutes and couldn't take anymore. Waaaaaay too much political talk for me.

Slapshot is the best! I have never seen Slapshot 2, and I have no desire to see it.

I don't even remember that, Terd. Usually turns me off too. Don't think the others are like that to the best of my recollection.

Just listened to that - it really was good! Crispin always comes across as smart. I liked what he had to say about the Bob's on BttF, he makes it sound like they've been lying about him.

Well, they were being shifty *******s to him as far as I know. So I think his bitterness is valid.
