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?


I don't think "Cool Runnings" is Canadian made.

The Changeling (1980) is a Canadian horror movie. I haven't watch it though. Heard of it only recently.

One location shooting was at the flatiron-shaped Hotel Europe in Gastown - now popular with foreign movie crews filming in Vancouver.

It's a Disney movie I think.

The Changeling (starring George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere) is one of the best haunted house movies ever made!!! It proves that a movie does not require an R rating to scare the bejeesus out of you.

The classic of all classic Quebec children's movies: La Guerre des Tuques (known as The Dog Who Stopped The War in English):

Still watched by the newer generations of kids here nearly 30 years after it was released.

It was loosely based on the true story of the Jamaican bobsled team that competed and Qualified and won over Canada and us Canadians during the 1988 Calgary Olympics.

I agree. It is a great movie...spooky. I remember when they burned down the house. It was on Hudson Street in Vancouver. It was slated to be demolished for condos.

I always enjoyed Men with Brooms and it actually got me interested in curling. It had a great soundtrack as well.

They did one season a few years ago of a TV adaption, but it just didn't work. The series just didn't have the interesting characters like in the film.

I watched that movie so many times as a child, and it still made me sad every time at the end. That fort was so sweet though, every Canadian kid who ever saw that movie was gazing in awe and jealousy.
