...flag waving lie$


That team won the gold. I suppose you believe in the Cigarette Smoking Man's involvement by injecting a numbing agent in the Soviet goalie's glove side??? -forgive the X-Files reference for those not familiar-

A hockey movie?!?!! Say no more, I'm there! The greatest game on earth.

But I'm not looking forward to seeing those hairstyles and clothes from that period. The late 70's, early 80's has to be the worst fashion era ever.

So sad that Herb Brooks died last fall.


He fell asleep at the wheel of his minivan coming south on I-35 into the Twin Cities.

Sad day indeed.

It being a hockey movie is what most excites me to, Amel. Hockey (or Hollywood) does need to catch up to the other sports as far as memorable movies go.

Should be a good movie. I'll go see it, as it is one of the greatest moments in sporting history.

Some of you need to get your sarcasm receptors tuned more often.

I think it was ESPN that ranked this moment as the greatest in sports history. From an non American standpoint, maybe it was not the greatest, but it was damn close. GREAT story...the movie looks a little cheesy, but still seems to be a must see...

This movie looks pretty good, and I hope it is good. I haven't seen anything in the theater since Big Fish, because nothing good is playing. This will hopefully change that.

Nothing like post Cold-War nostalgia.

I hope they get Dolph Lundgren to knock some American kid's head off again.

I caught a sneak on Saturday, its a good movie. I didn't enjoy it as much as Remember the Titans or the Rookie, but good nonetheless.

highly doubtful. Besides, we all know the hollywood left is slowly seeking to alter history to the point where it was the Soviets that were the "good guys" all along. lol!

at any rate, there is no question that the Soviet team during that era used intimidation as a primary weapon. Nothing wrong with it, teams with a few tough guys / hard-hitters on 'em do it in the NHL too. The thing that makes the story great is that americans suck at hockey, the soviets were the best, and it was their pros vs our kids and the kids won. Its the classic underdog sports story, and perfect for a movie IMO.

I could care less about this movie... Only because it'll contain the trademark Disney oversentimentalization. Also, its ridiculous to consider that game as "one of the greatest moments in modern history" (on official web-site). Hello??? It was a game!!!

If something is named the single greatest moment in sports wouldn't that make it among the greatest moments in modern history?

It was a game, but it had political ramafications off the field (ice). Like when Jesse Owens won in Berlin '36.

I think this movie's gonna be great. The trailer gives me the chills everytime I see it. I know some guys that saw a sneak of it over the weekend, and they said the games scenes are amazing...just like being at a real game. They said it was worth seeing in thaters if just for these sequences, and they're not even real big hockey fans.

Ever hear of spoiler tags? Man, this is worse than the bastard that ruined Titanic for me by telling me the f'n boat sank. Now I have no reason to see the movie.
