Something always felt a bit out of place for me in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant “The King of Comedy”, just released on Blu-ray for the first time. I couldn’t put my finger on it but chalked it up to it being thematically ahead of its time in its investigation of the cult of personality that defines modern entertainment.

Here is the synopsis for “Goon”:
Not content with his job as a bouncer at a local Beantown bar and an embarrassment to his accomplished family, Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) dreams of the success enjoyed by minor league hockey goon Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber). When a chance encounter with an on-ice thug leads to a bloody fist fight that Doug easily wins, the coach of the Halifax Highlanders sees potential in this mammoth-sized man. He’s only hampered by his lack of any hockey-playing ability and his brother’s old figure skates.
Standing up to the taunts of other players, Doug manages to join the team. With the encouragement of his hockey-obsessed best friend (Jay Baruchel), he quickly becomes a rising star. Soon he’ll get to face off against Ross “The Boss” Rhea and perhaps finally land a girlfriend. Now all he needs is to learn how to skate.
