If you're a fan of the comics or, hell, if you just want to see something really damned cool, take a look at THIS.

David Fincher has been producing a film version of Eric Powell's awesome comic.  It just looks fantastic.  That's Paul Giamatti and Clancy Brown playing Frankie and the Goon, BTW.

Can-not-wait.

I guess I didn't post because I didn't think it looked all that cool.  I figured it was because I had never heard of The Goon before, but I guess that theory can be thrown out. 

Oh well, to each their own.

How can one possibly not like the Goon?  My mind is a-boggled.  Seriously, it's one of the best reviewed comics series in recent years.

And that trailer is just gorgeous and cool.  Wow.

In the comic, is there a reason why the sidekick guy has all white eyes?

I think that's just the art style, kinda like he's from a demented version of Annie.

Yeah, it's an artistic choice, from what I can tell.

Not at all familiar with the source material, but that certainly looks like a lot of fun.  Paul Giamatti's voice is perfect for the part and the visual humor through animation worked well and looked fantastic. 

Definitely in unless reviews urge otherwise.

Here we are almost a year later. 

Here's a new Goon PSA

Also, watch out for the knife to the eye.

I was really looking forward to this so when I started seeing promos on the web for a film called Goon, I was excited.  Then I found out there's a hockey film with the same name and that's what i've been seeing advertisements for.   *Fist Shaking*

Yep, I clicked on this thread thinking it was about the hockey film that just opened at the Toronto Film Festival.

the hocky movie is called Goon, this movie is called The Goon.  One has to wonder if the popularity of either is enough to cause mass confusion.
