This Week in Tickets: 26 November 2018 - 2 December 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The theme for this week: Use the chance to see something in theaters wisely. What that means is that when The Great Buddha+ shows up on the Harvard Film Archive's schedule after you've been seeing the distributor tweet it up for a year (though s...

This Week in Tickets: 1 October 2018 - 7 October 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Averaging a movie a day even with playoff baseball going on, the sort of schedule that kind of makes my scrapbook grateful they didn't send my a physical ticket. It was a good week to catch up with some of the stuff that has been getting good rev...

Fantasia 2018.10: The Traveling Cat Chronicles, The Outlaws, Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires, Knuckleball, Amiko, and RokuRoku: Promise of the Witch

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Sometime I've got to go back over my old Fantasia programs and blogs to see if the makeup of the festival is changing, or at least what I see - this one has been pretty Japan-heavy, but that always seems to have been the case. I tend to think it's g...

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...

Late for Early Man

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Maybe I'm selling Peter Rabbit short here, but what the heck, America? Our cousins from across the pond have given us three family movies since the start of the new year, and that's the one we've made a hit, rather than Paddington 2 (a modest succes...

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...

Short Stuff: The 2017 Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Or, "The 2018 Oscar-Nominated Shorts (Animation)", as the program would have it. They can say that officially so that it doesn't look stale, but I say that the proper title ought to refer to the year the films were released, and not the on...

This Week In Tickets: 15 January 2018 - 21 January 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Check it out - actually getting through some of the discs I've accumulated over the past few years. Not sure that I'm actually outpacing the rate they're coming in, but it's more than I've done in a while. I opened the week playing with 3D Blu-r...

Mary and the Witch's Flower

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Well, that's one birthday present for my niece that loves Harry Potter sorted in a few months, which is a big part of what I wanted from this movie. Look, with four nieces and not wanting to repeat presents between them too much, a well-made movie w...

This Week In Tickets: 8 January 2018 - 1 January 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Not quite doing a movie every day, but keeping up a pretty good pace - and saw movies in seven different places! This time, it meant starting at home, finishing up the second half of a pair of Japanese films with The Bullet Train, which was not q...

Paddington 2

By: Jay's Movie Blog


So, which is more peculiar as a childless adult in one's mid-forties - seeing Paddington at a preview show with a mostly-empty theater, or showing up to a show full of families without any of your own? As much as you might get side-eye at the latter...

Saturday cartoons: "Olaf's Frozen Adventure", Coco, and The Breadwinner

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The worst thing about going to see an animated movie as an adult who likes the medium is not the sinking feeling that you're not supposed to be there (because you're in a room filled with kids and parents or at a nearly-empty 9pm show) or the like:...

Hearing-Impaired But Well Worth Seeing: A Silent Voice & Wonderstruck

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I wasn't necessarily planning this as a themed cross-town double bill, in part because the obvious dobule feature was Geostorm and A Silent Voice at the Common with Wonderstruck being the "if time and T allows" bonus. Also, while I knew th...

The Lego Ninjago Movie

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I like to see movies in 3D but part of MoviePass dropping to the $9.95 price was dropping the ability for those of us in Boston and Denver to pay an extra $10/month and see 3D movies (although I still appear to have listings for Imax at AMC theaters)...

Fantasia 2017 catch-up, part 1: Good Time, Bushwick, Museum, Mohawk, Game of Death (2017), Plan B, Napping Princess, Shinjuku Swan II, and Lowlife

By: Jay's Movie Blog


So, here's roughly 20% of the reviews I saw at Fantasia this summer and just had time to get an entry on Letterboxd and the blog before the next day started with a whole new batch of things to write up started screening. It's slower than I've been i...
