These Weeks in (Virtual) Tickets: 18 May 2020 - 31 May 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Putting a ticket to a ballgame that wasn't played in because I'd like to see the page broken up a little and to remind me later that all of this doing nothing wasn't entirely a choice. I might very well have been weak given the option. I got...

A new survey revealed that 40% of cinemas in China could permanently shutdown The post More than 20,000 Cinemas in China Might Permanently Shut Down appeared first on

The Taking of Tiger Mountain

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Not really a lot to say here that I didn't include in the eFilmCritic review other than noting that the disc I ordered from Hong Kong however long ago appears to be a 3D-only disc, with no option to watch in 2D that I saw on the menu (unless it's bur...

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon & Sword of Destiny

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I do not believe the sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon played the Boston area at all; the Weinstein Company, Netflix, and Imax struggled to find the right one-week window and the logical place to show it (AMC Boston Common) was just not going...

China Rereleasing Avengers Franchise & Avatar For Reopened Cinemas



The country is looking to boost its local film industry's economy as theaters slowly begin to reopen The post China Rereleasing Avengers Franchise & Avatar For Reopened Cinemas appeared first on

Short Stuff: The 2019 Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Most years, the program for the Oscar-nominated animated shorts is built with an eye toward family-friendliness, often arranged to put the one or two entries that might prove to be too much for the younger viewers at the end so that parents with smal...

This Week in Tickets: 6 January 2020 - 12 January 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


You know what seems like it would be a pretty good idea, sometime? Choosing a day, not setting an alarm, and just getting to work when I get there, working until 7pm if that's what what gets me on a good schedule. Might get me back to Davis at a ti...

War!: 1917 and Liberation

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Will wonders never cease - AMC accidentally set the times for a couple of movies in such a way that you could build a thematic double feature without having to kill an hour in between! It also gave me a nice chance to check out the new Dolby Cinema...

Undercover Punch and Gun

By: Jay's Movie Blog


How's it feel to have this disc on the way and have someone share an article ranking the 37 Hong Kong movies released in 2019 where this comes in at #35 or #36? Not great. And there's probably not a whole lot of room to argue, either; it's bad in a...


By: Jay's Movie Blog


Now, look, I'm not going to say for sure that China went for the absolute safest movie choice possible this New Year's Eve after last year, when many bought tickets to A Long Day's Journey Into Night based on a promised "midnight kiss" and...

This Week in Tickets: 23 December 2019 - 29 December 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Did we all have a great holiday? Here's hoping so, whether it involved movies or not! It was a bit of an odd schedule for me, as I took the day off work Monday and then spent a lot of time lying around rather than actually finishing my Christmas...

Fantasia 2019 Catch-up, Part 1: Kingdom, Satanic Panic, Blood on Her Name, Daniel Isn't Real, Human Lost, Paradise Hills, White Snake, Knives and Skin

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The second pass on Fantasia reviews will probably begin in earnest on the ride home from work today, but for now, here are the movies that got a theatrical release between my initial write-up at the festival and, well, now. Some of them just had a c...

Ip Man 4

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Big crowd for this one - enough for me to be in the front section and have people directly to all four cardinal directions. It wasn't all Chinese and Chinese-American people, either, and I wonder to what extent these movies are broadly popular among...

This Week in Tickets: 16 December 2019 - 22 December 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog


All that blank space? Totally going out to get presents for others, not just making my way through the new season of The Expanse at all. Still, The Expanse is pretty great, isn't it? I"ve been trying to make it last by just watching one ev...

Sheep Without a Shepherd

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'm not sure exactly how much of a surprise hit Sheep Without a Shepherd is in China - the end credits had Imax and Dolby Atmos logos, and I doubt that films are prepared for premium theaters there just as a matter of course. Yes, there are enough o...
