Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.07: Indemnity, Hold Me Back, and Ghosting Gloria

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Yikes, has it been a month? I can't even say it's been that busy at the day job and outside of movies, but sometimes you just can't get traction. I hope I've got some good notes here. Anyway, this is roughly the one-week mark for the festivals, ri...

Fantasia Extra: The Night House

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Part of the Fantasia experience: The mid-sized genre movie that was either booked before it was acquired by a distributor, or where the distributor and festival think they can get some sort of synergy by having what basically amounts to a preview sh...

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

By: Jay's Movie Blog


It's almost ancient history now, but there was a point when the conventional wisdom was that superhero movies would rise and fall on their villains. The heroes, after all, wore masks and were simple do-gooders who had to be around for the next movie...

Fantasia 2021 Extra: Cryptozoo

By: Jay's Movie Blog


A kind of amusing thing, now that the festival is over and I've blown past all the embargo dates, is that the date for Cryptozoo was on Saturday the 21st, when it actually opened in Boston on the 20th. Would I have been breaking embargo to review it...

Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.06: Hotel Poseidon and Baby Money

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Fairly narrow windows of availability during this virtual festival had me watching Giving Birth to a Butterfly and Hotel Poseidon back-to-back, two films with surreal elements that may be revealing just in terms of what I'm up for. Butterfly is 77 m...

Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.05: Giving Birth to a Butterfly

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Short day, and not necessarily because I was daydreaming about the possibility of going up to Montreal for the film in the festival's lineup that I most wanted to see, Septet, which apparently was only screening once, in person at the Imperial. Hope...

Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.04: Bull and Tokyo Revengers

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Fun accidental double feature here, with the Sunday virtual second screening of Bull and in-person-in-Montreal screening of Tokyo Revengers both featuring movies that involve trying to right wrongs after a ten year break, just with that break running...

Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.00-01: Kratt, Not Quite Dead Yet, Paul Dood's Deadly Lunch Break, Satoshi Kon: The Illusionist, and Brain Freeze

By: Jay's Movie Blog


In a typical year, I'm taking a bunch of time off work and heading up to Montreal for most of July, which means that going down to New York for a weekend beforehand is kind of hard to justify, although that hasn't stopped me in the past. Last year w...

Hot Take: The Indiana Jones Movies Are Good

By: Jay's Movie Blog


A fun thing about Letterboxd (follow me!) is that I was able to see a few other people I know decided that last week was a good time to dig into that new 4K box set of the Indiana Jones movies that Paramount put out last month. There is, of course,...

Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train

By: Jay's Movie Blog


A partial list of movies released during the pandemic that have done less at the American box office than Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train ($47.7M and counting): Wonder Woman 1984 ($46.5M) Tom and Jerry ($46M) Mortal Kombat ($42.1M) Nobody ($26.1...

IFFBoston 2021.07: Strawberry Mansion

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I was going to have a blank spot on IFFBoston's Wednesday slot because the only scheduled premiere was The Sparks Brothers, and I figured I'd catch it during a theatrical run, but they opted to move this one up a couple days (and make it available th...

IFFBoston 2021.02: The Dog Who Wouldn't Be Quiet and A Reckoning in Boston

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Is it just me, or is anyone else watching Brian Tamm's intro to these movies, especially the ones labeled "Generic Somerville" or "Generic Brattle", and seeing if they map to where they think the films in question would play durin...
