Also "Goon" is pretty Good if you understand the inside hockey jokes and jabs it is a very Canadian Hockey Film viewed from a Canadian POV
From a Canadian pov? I thought it was life in Canadian hockey viewed by an American. Or......am I missing what you're sayin'? lol

It is a great movie though!

"Rule number one: don't touch my ****ing perkacets!
Rule numer two: do you have any ****ing perkacets!?"

LMAO!!!

There was a movie called Black Robe, dealing with a Jesuit preist and the Natives. It's pretty slow, but it's decent.

Nope. Although it was dubbed into funny super-slangy Québécois and is considered a classic here for this reason.

Bruce McDonald's epic "Hard Core Logo"!

"Why the hell were two grown men still calling themselves Joe Dick and Billy Talent? When they made those names they were what 15? 16? The question is when will they stop using them. 40? 50? 60? You wonder if they remember their real names, Joe Mulgrew and Bill Boise. Then there's Pipe, can't even remember his real name. I used to want a punk handle too but I could never find one that fit. It was always John. John. John the bass player. John. John Oxenberger. John from Hard Core Logo. I guess I never had a real self to throw away like those guys."
-John Oxenberger, "Hard Core Logo"

I've seen this. It was a bit... dry from what I remember, it's been a while.

This was Canadian?! That is awesome; I watched that movie so many times as a kid.

Has anyone seen the movie Ticket To Heaven? It's not about being Canadian, per se. But it is a Canadian film, starring Canadians, half-filmed in Canada, and with a Canadian production crew. I remember it being an outstanding film - like Black Robe, it's been a really long time since I've seen it.

And do Cronenberg's movies count?
