I watched Goon this weekend, which I have been meaning to see since someone recced me this fic which is adorable and perfectly IC.

Goon was charming. I was kind of iffy about it because it's all about a guy becoming an enforcer, and I'm not really into hockey fights between guys who are actually able to hit each other because that shit's dangerous (I will admit to being amused by hockey fights between guys who are super terrible at it). But the movie was also kind of sketched out by it! It understands the appeal to the spectators and why the players like it, but is also pretty aware that people get fucked up out there and that it's not really the noblest thing ever. I was also super impressed by the movie's politics: the lead, Doug, is Jewish, his brother is gay, and the female lead is so, so great. cut for spoilers )

In actual hockey news, I am excited for game 6 tomorrow! I was surprised the Devils managed to pull off 4 and 5, but I don't think they'll be able to win four in a row. Go Kings! \o/
