Fantasia 2022.13: "The Astronaut and His Parrot", Rani Rani Rani, Chorokbam, Shari, "Ronde de Nuit", Maigret, "Blackbear", Resurrection

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Folks, Marc Lamothe was pretty excited to welcome Patrice Leconte (l) to Montreal for this screening of Maigret. I could only extract a little bit from the Q&A, because it was pretty much entirely in French, and, ironically enough, I tapped ou...

Fantasia 2022.12: The Artifice Girl, La Pietà, The Mole Song: Final, and The Breach.

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Kind of an up and down day here in a way, but when the ups are as good as The Artifice Girl, that's fine. Good turnout for the second show on Monday morning, with writer/director/actor/editor Franklin Ritch, cinematographer Britt McTammany, and st...

Fantasia 2022.11: "Spice Frontier", Opal, Tang and Me, Anime Supremacy!, Vesper, "What Is in the Ocean", and Legions.

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Day 11 is the midpoint of Fantasia - I think I noted online somewhere between Anime Supremacy! and Vesper that I'd seen 36 features and 23 shorts to that point - and I'm doing much of the write-up for it on Day 21, which I'll probably end with 73 fea...

Fantasia 2022.10: Anime no Bento, Demigod: The Legend Begins, "Aurora", My Grandfather's Demons, "Hairsucker", Deadstream, and Kappei

By: Jay's Movie Blog


A very animated Saturday, as my "grew up in the 1980s and that's when you watched cartoons" brain says should be the case. Sure, Demigod is technically puppetry, but you get the idea. Just the one guest, My Grandfather's Demons director...

Fantasia 2022.09: The Harbinger, Stellar: A Magical Ride, "Lass Mörder Sein", and Megalomaniac

By: Jay's Movie Blog


In a month and a half or so, when I'm joking about how all the people at Fantastic Fest saying they're really feeling it after four or five days are soft, I won't mention that day nine of Fantasia was like this, with me missing the first show because...

Fantasia 2022.08: All Jacked Up and Full of Worms, Detectives vs. Sleuths, Shin Ultraman, "Black Hole", and Glorious

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I saw a bunch of good stuff to start Week Two, but it was a genuinely odd/not idea day - I actually made a choice to see the first show of Chun Tae-Il on Wednesday evening rather than Thursday afternoon because it meant I could just squeeze in the pr...

Kevin Hart & Mark Wahlberg Get Wild in Comedy 'Me Time' Trailer



"Every parent's dream is to spend a week without their family" Netflix has revealed the first official trailer for Me Time, a new comedy from writer / director John Hamburg (of Along Came Polly, I Love You Man, Why Him?). Who's ready for another absu...

Fantasia 2022.06: Employee of the Month, "Hell Gig", Sissy, and We Might as Well Be Dead

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Another day skipping out on one of the afternoon shows. Look, I am descended from New England Puritans, and while I am fairly open-minded and willing to see a lot of weird stuff and live and let live about the rest, I am just not going to go to one...

Fantasia 2022.03: Baby Assassins, The Fish Tale, Popran, "Facies", and The Elderly

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Welp, that's not the first time I've found myself going to a different film than I figured on to start the day, but this may be the first time I didn't realize it until introductions started. Those introductions were Mitch welcoming The Elderly di...

Fantasia 2022.02: Coupez! and Hard Boiled

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Welcome to the last non-marathon day of the festival! From here out, it's long days and falling behind on the blog. Friday was a day of tough-ish decisions, with both My Small Land and Swallowed in de Seve not exactly having ideal second showtimes...

BUFF 2022.05: "Inbetween Days", Neptune Frost, Medusa, and Hatching

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Meet the team running things! Once again, because this is the tightest-scheduled festival you will ever see and (presumably) because of covid concerns, there was no Q&A in the theater for the animation package, but if you've got questions, the...

Patton Oswalt in Extra Awkward Comedy 'I Love My Dad' Full Trailer



"Keep your expectations low - she could be, like mean, or a scammer, or... your Dad?!?!" Magnolia has released the full-length main trailer for I Love My Dad, a totally nuts new comedy from filmmaker / actor James Morosini. This premiered at the 2022...

New Trailer for Wacky 'The Nan Movie' Comedy with Catherine Tate



"Don't you think you should be getting some rest?" Screen Media has revealed a new official US trailer for a wacky British comedy titled The Nan Movie, opening in the US later this month (in theaters + on VOD). Does anyone in the US even know who thi...

BUFF 2022.04: "Teenage Waterpolo", Watcher, Vortex, and Lux Æterna

By: Jay's Movie Blog


More guests! Did I get down who all these fine people were? No. It was a really quick introduction before the "Teenage Waterpolo" comedy shorts program, with the Q&A done virtually beforehand. It's available here, if you're curiou...

Official Competition

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I mention something about how I was expecting a somewhat more mainstream, more broadly comic movie and as such kind of had a review framing in mind as I was settling in: That Hollywood doesn't really make this sort of movie as much as they used to,...
