Miracle

Okay, so it is a hockey movie. It just opened today and has been getting good reviews. Even non-hockey people have been enjoying it. Has anyone seen it yet or are you planning to? This is one I want to see. Kurt Russell plays Herb Brooks, the coach for the 1980 US Olympic Hockey team. The team was a bunch of young (mostly college age) players who somehow pull together and win the gold medal. It was a great moment in US sports history. It is a Disney movie, so I hope they don't make it too cutesy. It is another David and Goliath, against all odds movie, but it is based on a true story and was important at the time.

Miracle

i think i want to see it

i'm having trouble looking past the fact that it's done by disney

i saw a commerical for it, but previews are like statistics in the sense that you can mroe or less get them to say whatever you want them to say.

Ha ha, you beat me to it LM!! All the early reviews on AICN, done by Disney-haters and non hockey fans really liked it, so I think it'll be good.

I'm going to go see it tomarrow--a late birthday thing.

The reviews have been really good for this movie but one critic said it was one of the best hockey movies ever made. He made it sound like there were thousands of hockey movies out there instead of maybe 6 (a guess).

I want to see it too!

I get to go see this for a class ( Sociology of Sport ).
Which is handy, considering I know a total of one other person who is remotely interested in seeing it. Well, one and my mom.
I just wonder if the school will pay for it...

LOL, yeah, it's not like there's alot of competition for Best Hockey Movie:

Slapshot (not high on the pathos meter!)
Mighty Ducks (3? 4? I don't know.)
Mystery, Alaska
Youngblood (Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze, and Rob Lowe...need I say more?)

IMDB says there's "King of Hockey" made in 1936 and "The Million Dollar Hockey Puck" from 1975...

I refuse to count The Cutting Edge.

I liked the Cutting Edge, well I was 15 so that should factor into it. I passed it on tv the other day and cringed, haha.

I really want to see Miracle. But I hate going to see movies I may cry at, haha.

It's good

Kurt Russell's performance is excellent. Even the players, who are not actors, were good. That story still holds up after all these years.

Even though Disney could have ruined this movie , they didn't.

It is good!! Even though you know how it ends, the ending of the movie is really exciting. Will they keep the lead till the game ends?!

Disney didn't screw it up at all.

I just got back from seeing it. Really good!! Not Disney-fied at all.

My legs were aching just watching the blue line drills. Considering I wanted to choke my recreation coach with his whistle on several "again, again, again!!" evenings, I can't imagine...I just wanted to give them a hug.

And to all my fellow puck bunnies...the casting left nothing wanting.

I am going to see it tonight. However, I have seen video and pictures of the 1980 team and I don't remember them being so damn good looking like they are in the movie!

I noticed that during the previews! Then again, I think hockey players are the best looking out of the four major sports in the U.S., so it didn't seem that odd that all the guys in the movie looked so hot.

I wanted to see this movie, but now that you guys have dispelled the rumors that Disney would ruin it, I really want to go. It looks really emotional and exciting, especially if you love hockey.

So yeah. Mofo, you can pick me up at 8.
