This Week in Tickets: 3 September 2018 - 9 September 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Kind of a boring week at the cinemas, but one where I finally caught up with some of the stuff I'd been meaning to see for a while. I mentioned being a slug all last weekend, at it lasted through Labor Day, when I finallly caught a new release an...

Fantasia 2018.60: Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Having missed this one at Fantasia, I was glad to have the opportunity to catch up, even if the only theater it played in my area was something of a hike. I think it played a somewhat broader range of theaters when it had its US premiere in July, bu...

Fantasia 2018.18: Penguin Highway, International Science Fiction Shorts, Circo Animato, One Cut of the Dead, and Five Fingers for Marseilles

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I am not sure whether having two shorts programs on the same day is sensible or crazy, but it probably means that this particular post will wind up very late, though only this post. Plenty of filmmakers, though! So, for the International Sci-Fi s...

Fantasia 2018 Catchup 00: Summer of '84, Our House, Arizona, and What Keeps You Alive

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Two days left to finish and I've already fallen behind stuff that's hitting theaters (if not around here) and streaming. Fortunately, they're all pretty good and someone else has already reviewed the one I didn't love for eFilmCritic so I can hold o...

Go Brother!

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Part of the fun of my preferred "just in front of the moat" seats is that I'll often sit down, fiddle with my phone until the previews start, and not realize until the end of the movie that the theater actually filled in pretty well behind...

This Week in Tickets: 20 August 2018 - 26 August 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Late summer is for baseball, ignoring the major releases, and procrastinatnig on catching up on the stuff that's worth it. I generally try and space my baseball games out, but sometimes they schedule the game with the Snoopy bobblehead giveaway t...

This Week in Tickets: 6 August 2018 - 12 August 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


First full week after Fantasia, so time to start this back up, though there are still two more days from the festival and a few other stragglers. But like I say, you can't just pull out of a three-week Asian/genre festival all at once. So, I sta...

Along with the Gods, Parts 1 & 2

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Still time to see Part 2 in AMC Boston Common if you can catch a matinee today, but you might have to catch up on the first one first, so good luck with that. Sorry, I'm bee watching a crap-ton of other Asian movies and back to work. I recommend th...

Fantasia 2018.17: Bleach, Laughing Under the Clouds, Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings, Punk Samurai Slash Down, and Terrified

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The rare long all-Hall day, although that's in part because I could feel myself winding down during Terrified and wasn't going to swipe a seat from somebody who wouldn't fall asleep during The Oily Maniac. Enjoyably crowded all day, although with a...

Fantasia 2018.11: Fireworks, Loi Bao, Our House, The Witch: Part 1 - The Subversion, and Parallel

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The weekend is for starting out in Hall and ending up in DeSève, while the week goes the other way. Thus the expected big crowd for Fireworks (which I'm guessing either didn't play Canada/Quebec earlier in the month or folks just waited for it to p...

Fantasia 2018.09: People's Republic of Desire, Cam, Kasane, and The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Nifty scheduling: People's Republic of Desire and Cam back-to-back The first actually serves as a sort of primer for how rank- and gift-based the live-stream economy is, and they wind up touching on some overlapping information while still having v...

Fantasia 2018.07: Boiled Angels: The Trial of Mike Diana, I Have a Date with Spring, The Vanished, and BuyBust

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Huh, I could have sworn that folks from Boiled Angels were here as guests, but I guess that's just for the first show. I'd take the excuse to stay in Montreal for four days and maybe use my cast & crew pass to see a bunch of free movies, but wha...

Fantasia 2018.06: Mega Time Squad, Room Laundering, and The Blonde Fury

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Monday could have made Tuesday really short, but I actually kind of like that I had the big gap between Mega Time Squad from 1pm to 3pm and Room Laundering at 7:25pm - it's entirely possible I would have sat at the computer straight through the after...

Fantasia 2018.05: Relaxer, Being Natural, Neomanila, and Profile

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Can't say I really liked the first movie I saw today, but an entertaining Q&A helps it go down better. That is Camera Lucida programmer Ariel Esteban Coyer flanked by Relaxer director Joel Potrykus and co-star David Dastmalchian, who both talk...

Fantasia 2018.04: Destiny: The Tale of Kamakura, Aragne: Sign of Vermillion, Cold Skin, L'Inferno (1911), and The Scythian.

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Never underestimate the manga/anime crowd at Fantasia. You may think that something is just big in Japan because you haven't seen it in the local comic shop, and it doesn't really seem to fit with the festival from the description, and then you show...
