Fantasia 2018.03: Hanagatami, Unity of Heroes, True Fiction, Buffalo Boys, and Summer of '84

By: Jay's Movie Blog


This was not a great day to have a cold, folks. Not only was it a five-film day, but almost all of them seemed to be dragged out in one way or another. Just got myself a whole bunch of cold medicine, so I'll probably be in better shape over the nex...

These Those Weeks In Tickets: 23 April 2018 - 6 May 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Four days until Fantasia starts (in July), so it's time to put the final bow on my blogging about Independent Film Festival Boston (back in April and May). Might as well get right to it, then, without making the dumb mistake I did when writing...

This Week in Tickets: 25 June 2018 - 1 July 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Folks, I'm looking at the Fantasia schedule for this year and breathing a sigh of relief at there not seeming to be many midnights. I am getting old. But before getting to how I can't stay up like I want to, I at least demonstrated that I won't...

Chinese Cinema: The Leakers & Animal World

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I didn't get a chance to take advantage of it because I had stuff to do and baseball to watch, but AMC actually scheduled the two Chinese movies they opened this weekend in a way that you could do a double feature without a whole lot of fuss, which i...

This Week In Tickets: 18 June 2018 - 24 June 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I decided I did not have the strength for two long movie commutes this weekend and maybe that was a mistake. First up, though, was an IFFBoston-sponsored preview of Searching at the Brattle on Monday. I was going back and forth, because it's goi...

Secret Agent Saturday: The Catcher Was a Spy and Lobster Cop

By: Jay's Movie Blog


You would think that a movie about a Red Sox player who later went on missions for the OSS during World War II, one that was apparently shot in Fenway Park (with some CGI to knock about 80 years off the place), and one that played into the idea that...

This Week In Tickets: 21 May 2018 - 27 May 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


It may push bedtime back an hour or two, but I'm getting "This Week" up before "Next Week". What can I say, sometimes you just have a lot of Star Wars opinions to get out. First up this week was Raazi, a distinctly Indian spy...

How Long Will I Love U

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Someone should option this for an American remake, but instead of casting white actors, set it in New York City's Chinatown (or, heck, Boston's) as it shrinks and faces encroaching gentrification. I'm not sure exactly how that script works, not the...

This Week's Chinese Crime: The Trough & A or B

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I was prioritizing The Trough over A or B to start with on Friday night - Hong Kong crime & action over anything else, right - but it wound up being out of my hands, as every showing of A or B was listed as "sold out" that day. Possibl...

Big Fish & Begonia

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Probably not much time to catch this even if you're reading the review just as it goes up, as it's only playing single evening shows at Kendall Square and Boston Common for tonight and tomorrow, and I think only tonight's screening at Kendall Square...

This Week In Tickets: 9 April 2018 - 15 April 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Isn't it supposed to be spring now? Because it was cold out this week, whether in the bleachers at Fenway or killing time in Harvard Square before a show at the Brattle. I mean, I actually hung around work for an extra hour or so because that me...

Happy Chinese New Year, Have Another Sequel: Detective Chinatown 2

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Not quite the end of my catching the Chinese New Year films - there's still one from Hong Kong to catch up on - but it's kind of funny that I've basically been catching them in reverse order of their popularity in China: Monkey King 3 is a relativel...

Happy Chinese New Year, Have a Quasi-Sequel: Operation Red Sea

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Under a lot of circumstances, I might not really question how much I enjoyed this sort of gung-ho, pro-military action tale; even though I'm not a violent person, I do love action movies that don't mess around; there's pretty good catharsis in an evi...

Happy Chinese New Year, Have Some Sequels: The Monkey King 3 & Monster Hunt 2

By: Jay's Movie Blog


One ore sequel to go for the weekend, but other big movie/vacation things are going to keep me from seeing Detective Chinatown 2 right away (I see that there is a theater in New Orleans playing that one, so maybe I'll do that on a rainy evening), and...

Finishing the Series I: Sha Po Lang 3: Paradox, Zebraman 2: Attack on Zebra City, The Monkey King, The Vanished Murderer

By: Jay's Movie Blog


My shelves of media are what you might call a large number of ambitious projects all jammed into the same space, the inevitable consequence of my being paid well enough to get a copy of any movie or book that interests me despite knowing that I proba...
