Reindeer Games isn't the only movie that falls into this category... take for instance The Ref. Great movie (to me anyway) set at Christmastime with Bostonian Dennis Leary and Kevin Spacey (star of the hit Boston Movie 21). Or how about Trapped in Paradise with Dana Carvey, Jon Lovitz and National Treasure star Nicholas Cage. I love B movies like these but I mean, I can never get anyone to watch them with me except for this one week every year!
So if you're anything like me, go for it. Pop in that old DVD you normally get shunned for watching. Chalk up any looks you get to their diminished yule, and continue to enjoy the holidays!

The the story follows a man called Farmer (Jason Statham) who fights for his people and then gets mixed up fighting creatures called Krug. That's about all you need to know (besides there are no Boston connections).
One word: Wow. From the script to the acting, this movie was just bad. It was so bad, it was almost laughable at times. I was going to turn it off but felt it was a badge of courage to watch the entire film. What was worse is the DVD version was extended so the movie ran 165 minutes I will never get back.
The one saving grace for the movie has great effects so it showed off my new Blu-ray nicely. I also got some tips on how to shoot a bow and arrow which is good for helping my son with his new toy bow and arrow set (seriously).

2. Morgan Freeman. Freeman has frequented Boston in Beantown flicks Gone Baby Gone, The Maiden Heist and Amistad. As another tidbit, Damon met Amistad director Steven Spielberg on the set of Amistad which led to Damon's role in Saving Private Ryan
3) Clint Eastwood. Lastly, Clint Eastwood brought Dennis Lehane's Mystic River to the big screen.
Of the movies about 4 out of 5 received some kind of Oscar recognition (I wouldn't hold your breath on The Maiden Heist.) Only time will tell with Invictus.
