Stiq Flicks – from film and video game industry freelance writer Kevin Kelly – examines video games and attempts to pair them with matching films. It’s like wine and cheese, but with more aliens.
Surprisingly, the drama surrounding hockey has often translated to well crafted film experiences: it’s hard to tap the sheer essence of Paul Newman in Slap Shot, there’s the tugging-at-the-heartstrings true story of Miracle, and plenty of people have a soft spot for The Mighty Ducks, which spawned an entire franchise. You can also choose to go arthouse with Mystery, Alaska, or even indie with the iconic rooftop hockey scene in Clerks, which I’m including just because of Kevin Smith’s predilection for wearing hockey jerseys.
But if you want to get to the pure heart of old-school, enforcer-focused, cement-head hockey, then look no further than Goon.
