The Week In Film: GOON

Friday, 6 January 2012

I told you the Friday movie post would be changing a little, don’t worry I will still be including all you need to know about what’s new at the cinema but I’m also going to take you through what may be worth your time on TV, pending what’s on TV or at the cinema will as always determine how long the post is.  Don’t like it or think it’s pointless, then hey let me know, you know me by now I can take it.

First we are off to the cinema and there is only one movie to mention from there this week as if I mention a certain other one regarding a former British Prime Minister then my father may well stop speaking to me, you get my jist, you know what I’m talking about right? Yeah I thought so.  Anyway on with what will be worth seeing this week Goon
starring Sean William Scott, Jay Baruchel, Liev Schreiber and Alison Pill.

I first heard of Goon a while back catching a little sneak peak trailer my first thought was Happy Gilmore updated with Sean William Scott who’s a hapless Ice Hockey player, reading about it in full I don’t think I was to far from the spot other than most of the fights will be on the rink in this movie.  Goon follows the story of a bouncer Doug Glatt (Scott) who is ignored by his intelligent family as an outcast, he visits a minor league Hockey game with friend Ryan (Baruchel), a fight breaks out at the game and they begin to taunt the visiting team causing one of their players to jump into the stands only to get headbutted by Doug.  Thinking nothing of it he heads home but gets a call from the team coach asking him to play for the team as an enforcer, a player who’s job it is to protect his team mates by fighting with the opposition.  I don’t think Goon will be a great movie but it should prove to be pretty funny, not sure I would pay cinema prices though.

Ok, so that's what's good at the cinema this weekend, one movie!  Don't worry though there is plenty on TV to keep you entertained, I haven't put anything here from Sky but there is never that much on their massive collection of movie channels, so I will go with whats on normal free TV.
