Every post on the internet these days is concerned with the best this or the top 5 that. You know what doesn’t get any respect? Things that are solid. Are these scenes the best? Eh, they’re pretty good. And, truth be told, I’m probably missing a lot here. I haven’t come close to seeing all Boston-based movies, including some of the big ones like Spotlight, Gone Baby Gone, or Mystic River. Regardless, one thing is for certain with this group: these are definitely scenes that are definitely from movies that are for sure set in Boston.
Now that I’ve got the crowd pumped up, let’s dive in.
How could I start with anything other than the 2020 Netflix classic, Spenser Confidential?
Yeah, it’s pretty rough.
Don’t get me wrong – the Jimmy Fallon led remake is not a great movie. BUT I’ve always loved the idea of getting that delivery of fresh tickets to all 82 games and having that draft with your friends.
I definitely saw this movie. and I’m pretty sure I liked it. Somehow, I remember absolutely nothing about it. I even forgot that Jeremy Renner was in it.
I’m a big fan of The Fighter so here’s two scenes:
Around here, everyone knows a badass Home Depot employee so it was only a matter of time before a story like this made its way to the silver screen.
Just like The Town, Boondock Saints is another movie I’ve seen – probably multiple times – and yet I remember absolutely nothing about it. Nothing.
Here’s the first clip I found:
Good Will Hunting
An absolute classic.
