    Some slight differences between the movie and the book (with one major difference regarding the fate of a specific character) but overall the movie was pretty well done. Willem Dafoe as Virgil Cole, Danny Glover as the squadron CO, Tom Sizemore as Boxman, and Law & Order's Dann Florek as Mad Jack the Jungle Quack (the squadron's flight surgeon), along with Ving Rhames and David Schwimmer in bit roles

    That's a Ryan Adams song, but he's not singing on it here, just Elton John. Also, that pic on the video is Bryan Adams.

    But the song itself is from a Crossroads at the Opry in which Elton John and Ryan Adams played together, so...

    No use in complaining, though.

    Hair Color: Brown
    Eye Color: Blue
    Mode of Transportation: Foot/Train/Tram
    Job: Student
    What brought you to HF Boards: The distinct lack of any Canes-related conversation on any British hockey sites!
    How you became a hockey fan: I first watched hockey during the 2006 Winter Olympics... when I made the stupid decision, feeling all pumped and macho, to pull my tooth out with the aid of a toffee! Thereafter, didn't watch until the 2014 Olympics and fell in love with the sport. Moved to Sheffield for uni, one reason was that it allowed me to access live hockey.
    How you became a Canes fan: Started watching some of the limited free games shown in Britain. Always had a love for the Finnish players. Gotta root for an underdog!
    Favorite thing about being a Canes fan: Nobody in Britain knows anything about them (bar the diehard hockey fans) so I'm never accused of being a plastic fan, or a bandwagoner.
    Favorite Canes Player(s): Cam Ward, Sebastian Aho, Teuvo Teravainen, Jaccob Slavin
    Favorite NON Canes Player(s): Sergei Bobrovsky, Roberto Luongo, Patrik Laine, Teemu Selanne, Liam Kirk, Kevin Nastiuk

    I refuse to believe that Kiddermimster is a real place. That name can’t be real.

    Thanks geehaad!

    Hahahah so pretty much as I described it there! My first encounter with hockey was in the 2006 olympics. I had a tooth half hanging from the gum that was causing me a lot of pain. I saw some tough competition and plucked up the courage to sort out the cause of my pain... by taking a hard toffee and chewing on it so as to pull my tooth out!

    Blood...

    Everywhere... :laugh:

    It's the "there was so much blood that I was put off from hockey for eight years!" bit that I find confusing.

    I refuse to acknowledge any evidence you may present. I’m going full flat-earther on this one. That name is too ridiculous, even for British standards.

    No, no this wasn't the case! Hockey is a minority sport in the UK and has next to zero coverage. Even though it was a little over a decade ago, has I been able to find any dodgy streams online, the internet connection was so bad then I would have been unable to watch anyway! The only real chances you get, living away from the 'hot beds' of UK hockey, is through the Winter Olympics.

    Believe me, mate. I'm from the place. I wish I was in a position where I could gleefully discount its existence. Alas, I cannot...

    There are plenty more places with worse names, besides!

    I feel like there could be some interesting backstory here that you’re glossing over.

    PS: auto-correct changed the end of that sentence to “flossing over”. :laugh:
