If there's one underrated genre of film - or completely unknown - it would be movies set on ice!

Whether it comes in the form of body-checking into the boards, or turning your worst enemies into ice sculptures, movies on ice are actually more exciting than you'd think. And with Goon: Last of the Enforcers coming to Cineplex theatres, movies on ice are getting even better.

Check out our favourite movies on ice below:

Goon

Not going to beat around the bush, Doug (Sean William Scott) is - for lack of better words - the family disappointment. With a brother and father in the medical field and Doug in the 'nothing-going-on-in-life' field, it's safe to say he's

Will 'Mighty Ducks 4' Ever Happen?

Will 'Mighty Ducks 4' Ever Happen?
In this cinematic era, we hear about new reboots and sequels that revive older properties practically every day, in both movies and television. While it seems that any movie which had a modicum of success is ripe for a sequel or a reboot, that may not always be the case. The Goldbergs creator Adam F. Goldberg recently appeared on the Nerdist Podcast, where he revealed that he pitched The Mighty Ducks 4 to Disney. But guess what? They weren't interested. Here's what he had to say, revealing he came up with a 20-page treatment for the potential sequel.

"I came up with a whole - it's like a 20-page treatment, and I've pitched it. The movie meant a lot to me, because the goalie on it is named Goldberg, and he wore a Flyers jersey. I was from Philly, and it spoke to me and my brother Barry. We watched it

What Is Expiring From Netflix on January 1?

Quack! D2: The Mighty Ducks cast reunite with a flying V
The cast of D2: The Mighty Ducks reunited over the weekend, and took the opportunity to recreate their famous 'Flying V'.

The stars of the 1994 sequel - minus Emilio Estevez, Kenan Thompson and Joshua Jackson - met up to mark the 20th anniversary of the film on Sunday (September 21).

Marguerite Moreau, who played Connie Moreau, kept fans up to date on the reunion via Instagram, posting various pictures from the get-together.

One picture saw Shaun Weiss next to a poster of his character Goldberg, along with the caption: "Boys grow up to be men #Goldberg #mightyducks #20yearreunion."

The 1994 film was followed by another sequel, D3: The Mighty Ducks, in 1996.

Jackson - who played Charlie Conway - recently voiced his support for a fourth film, telling Time magazine: "I feel like a fourth film should happen, and if there was space for any of the original kids to come back and have a role,

'Mighty Ducks 4' Could Happen & One Possible Story is Pretty Dark

It's been 22 years since The Mighty Ducks took to the ice, and only 18 years since their final match arrived in D3: The Mighty Ducks. So Time thought there was no better time to dive into an oral history of the entire Disney sports drama franchise, a childhood staple of many kids who lived through the 90s and ended up loving the classic rock of Queen by association. There's been rumblings here and there about some sort of return to the franchise, either in the form of an adult sequel or a remake, and with the aforementioned recent foray into the making-of the trio of films starring Emilio Estevez and Joshua Jackson, we have some details on that possibility, and also one potential, fairly dark storyline. Read on! First of all, franchise producer Jordan Kerner cautions that there's no active development of The Mighty Ducks 4, however, there's certainly interest from the studio,

‘Mighty Ducks 4′ Might Happen Someday, Eventually, Maybe
It’s been 18 years since the release of D3: The Mighty Ducks, but in our sequel-happy age, it’s never too late to consider a follow-up. While D4 isn’t officially in development, producer Jordan Kerner has revealed that it’s not not in development, either. He just needs the “right story.” Should he ever find it, he’ll have […]

Terminator Will Be Back Summer 2015

  • kidspickflicks
Update: Skydance, Annapurna are teaming up with Paramount to release the next reboot of the Terminator franchise on June 26, 2015. Laeta Kalogridis, who wrote Shutter Island and is a producer on White House Down, will write the screenplay with Patrick Lussier, known for the Scream movies (he also wrote the kids movie D3: The Mighty Ducks). Arnold Schwarzenegger committed to returning to the franchise in the title role when the property was owned by Pacificor. The press release mentioned the actor as participating in the first three films but didn't mention him in this rendition, so it remains to be seen if he will, indeed, be back. 

Dec. 4, 2012 - The Terminator franchise has been sold off again, this time to proper movie makers. David Ellison of Skydance Productions, the producer of films like Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and True Grit, and his sister Megan Ellison of Annapurna Pictures, the production company

Some Thoughts on The Passing of Michael Ryan

I have never met a person as boundlessly enthusiastic as my Quebecois co-host Michael Ryan. We all have a reserve of positivity residing within us; some are smaller than others, but Mike’s was infinite. Upon seeing the news, posted to his Facebook page from his parents, Michele and Terry, that Mike had passed away, I was (and remain) heartbroken. In some small way, I feel as if I’ve lost a close family member, someone with whom I could heartily disagree on a weekly basis without worrying that I’d irreparably damaged our relationship.

I remember when Ricky D pointed me in Mike’s direction, after joining Sound on Sight as I began searching for my first co-host. I was stumped at first as to who could or would want to join me, but when Ricky mentioned Mike, he did so with a tone of “Oh, how could I have forgotten about him?

First Trailer for Love and Honor with Liam Hemsworth & Teresa Palmer

  • HeyUGuys
Currently in cinemas alongside Stallone and the gang in The Expendables 2, and previously seen in one of the year’s biggest blockbusters, The Hunger Games, Liam Hemsworth has had a pretty excellent year, making a strong name for himself (beyond the early references to him as Chris Hemsworth’s brother).

He’ll next be starring in romance-drama, Love and Honor, opposite Teresa Palmer (Wish You Were Here, the upcoming Warm Bodies) in the female lead, and now the first trailer has made its way online.

“When Dalton Joiner (Austin Stowell), a young soldier in Vietnam, gets dumped by his hometown girlfriend Jane (Aimee Teegarden), he vows to sneak home during war to win her back. His best buddy,

Mickey Wright (Hemsworth), never one to miss out on a wild time, decides to go with him. They must get back to America, change her mind and return to the war without getting caught.

Exclusive: Director Robert Lieberman Talks The Tortured

Director Robert Lieberman discusses his thriller The Tortured, debuting in theaters June 15

Robert Lieberman is a director who definitely can't be pigeonholed into any particular genre. He's done sci-fi (Fire In The Sky), family sports drama (D3: The Mighty Ducks), episodes of hit TV series (Dexter, Eureka, Nikita), and everything in between. The filmmaker returns with the taut thriller The Tortured, debuting in limited release on June 15. I recently had the chance to speak with the director about his new project, which centers on a young couple (Jesse Metcalfe and Erika Christensen) who take extreme measure to exact justice on the man who kidnapped and murdered their only son.

Here's what he had to say.

Can you talk about your early encounters with the writer, and how it all started coming together?

The Tortured (2010)

Directed by: Robert Lieberman

Written by: Marek Posival

Starring: Erika Christensen, Jesse Metcalfe, Fulvio Cecere, Bill Moseley

Grief can be an enormously difficult emotion to pull off on screen, mainly because we all deal with it in different ways and it's hard for most of us to imagine the tragedy that befalls Craig and Elise Landry, the couple at the center of Robert Lieberman's The Tortured.

The Landrys' son, Benjamin, is taken from them in broad daylight and murdered by a sadistic child molester and serial murderer. The killer is captured by the police, but cuts a deal. It's one thing to lose your child, but seeing that the man who took him away from you isn't getting nearly the punishment you think he deserves? That may give one…ideas. It certainly gives the Landrys ideas. As I said, we all deal with grief in different ways, and The Tortured

Extended Thoughts on ‘D3: The Mighty Ducks’

Directed by Robert Lieberman

Written by Steven Brill, Jim Burnstein, and Kenneth Johnson

Starring Emilio Estevez, Jeffrey Nordling, Joshua Jackson

The drum I will keep beating throughout the entirety of this podcast, throughout however many years the show runs for, the one you will beg me to stop harping on (though I never, ever will) is internal logic. I don’t care what kind of movie you’re making, I don’t care if the audience is meant to be 5 or 50: you need to have internal logic in your story. If not, the story falls apart. Even great movies that are implausible manage to make audiences forget those implausibilities while it’s taking place. But movies that don’t try to make audiences focus on what’s truly important, movies that don’t have internal logic and don’t care, are the ones I dislike most of all.

Breakaway (Speedy Singhs) Movie Review

After seeing umpteen films about cricket from Lagaan to Iqbal to Victory, Speedy Singhs is the first Canadian-Hindi film we see about ice hockey. But this isn’t your average sports based first with a dash of patriotism and individual storylines of triumph. Its a story about Rajveer Singh [Vinay Virmani] who is stuck between the expectations of following the family business and devotion enforced by his father [Anupam Kher of course] and his dream of greatness in ice hockey. But you can’t play ice hockey without a team so while papa doesn’t know, he forms his team, the Speedy Singhs, and tries to fulfil this desire.

Of course we have our dash of love with Camilla Belle playing the love interest Melissa, sister to coach Dan Winters, played by Rob Lowe that agrees to train the Speedy Singhs to victory. And maybe for a little fun, a dash of comedy supplied by Russell Peters who plays Sonu,

Speedy Singhs cast and crew at UK press launch

Stars of American, Canadian and Indian cinema come together in new crossover film Speedy Singhs - and several of them gathered on stage in London for a press launch ahead of its UK release tomorrow (September 30).

Comedian Russell Peters and screen debutant Vinay Virmani joined fellow cast and crew members including comic/actor Gurpreet 'Ghuggi' Singh and co-producer Ajay Virmani as they addressed the audience and conducted a Q&A session.

Russell Peters and Vinay Virmani are pictured above at the event in London and (below) with Gurpreet Singh. A number of other photographs from the event are included below.

Peters said: "I always worry about what people will think of my films but I Lol'd when I saw this and I also got teary-eyed when I saw the film at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it premiered. The film is shot, directed and cut extremely well."

Ludacris teams up with Bollywood Superstar to bring us Speedy Singh

  • HeyUGuys
Hindi film cinema has been yearning for that cross over hit for quite a while and rap-fused bhangra tracks have been a part of the promotional arsenal of every recent Akshay Kumar release starting from Singh Is King (where he rapped alongside Snoop Dogg wearing a horrible fake beard).

Although producing and not starring, this time, Speedy Singh (also known as Breakaway in outside of UK and India) seems to be a mish mash of underdog sports films like Mighty Ducks (the director helmed the 3rd part of the franchise) and cultural identity conundrums of Bend It Like Beckham set in the world of Canadian Ice Hockey.

This time Akshay Kumar ropes in Ludacris and Drake for some cameos on the soundtrack and appearances in the movie.

Here is the video clip of Shera Di Kaum which features a lot of slow motion strutting and rap posturing in front of
