New from China: More than Blue & The Crossing

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I see that More than Blue is getting a second week at Boston Common and The Crossing is not, which is too bad; the latter is clearly the better movie. I wonder how much it's down to the first being more easily-digestible and how much is due to other...

Three Husbands

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Just spent a week and a weekend in Hong Kong, and I'm kind of as surprised as anyone how little of my vacation was directly movie-related, given that I'm me, Hong Kong cinema was a major inspiration for the trip, and even local films tend to show wit...

Hong-Kong-a-Thon 2: Project S, Hot War, Eastern Condors, Beast Cops, Bloody Friday, and Full Contact

By: Jay's Movie Blog


There was a brief moment when I looked at the announcement of the second annual Hong-Kong-a-Thon, thought that it took place the same weekend as the Boston Sci-Fi Marathon, and thought "you know what, I could probably do that!" This would...

Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival 2019: Axcellerator, Ikarie XB-01, King Kong '33, Last Sunrise, and Chesley Bonestell: A Brush with the Future

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I knew, going into the Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival this year, that I would be seeing less - several years of underwhelming selections, frustrations with technical gaffes (and weather-related cancellations), and the increasing number of worthy other o...

Short Stuff: The 2018 Oscar-Nominated Live Action Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Are you all right, Academy voters? I know that it's been a rough year for some, and it's got to feel like general misery is the prevailing situation in the world today even before you start considering that depicting pain is often seen as more diffi...

Short Stuff: The 2018 Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Every year, a package is put together with all the animated short films nominated for an Academy Award, plus a few to pad out the running time, and it's generally one of the most enjoyable cinema samplers to come out over the year, with a bunch of di...

Everybody Knows

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I have not, historically, been one to complain about film runtimes - what am I going to do with another fifteen minutes that's better than watching a movie?, right - but this thing is 132 minutes long, and even if it handles that length pretty well,...

This was the movie I intended to see Friday night only to wind up at Arctic, and while I was initially annoyed at all the weekend shows being canceled, it turns out to be a not-awful decision; The Wandering Earth put a lot of butts in seats and there...


By: Jay's Movie Blog


Holy crap, you can see the Kendall from the street again! Arctic wound up being sort of a last-minute detour, as another theater reshuffled their screens to give The Wandering Earth a lot more showtimes than it originally had, wiping what I'd plan...

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi

By: Jay's Movie Blog


It appears that I arrived at my seat just a bit too late to see a fair number of disclaimers before this, citing historians consulted and the like. Not unusual for Indian movies, I've found, and not exactly a bad policy, although I do wonder if that...

Stan & Ollie

By: Jay's Movie Blog


For a guy who often feels like a character actor or ensemble player, John C. Reilly played a title character in four different movies in 2018 (The Sisters Brothers, Ralph Breaks the Internet, Holmes & Watson, and Stan & Ollie). Eric Snider c...
