Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival 2018.10-11: The Marathon

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I think I'm done with this. I've grumbled about the festival and the marathon for a while, but I think this was the year that finally broke me. There was the usual annoyance at how the festival people would announce something as a premiere even tho...

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...

Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival 2018.02: Flora, The Gateway & Andover

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Yep, a week later, I get this posted. So much for trying to do it quick by not writing a whole lot, but all three of these movies were just good enough that the "don't pile on" instinct didn't kick in and but also had something in them wor...

Finishing the Series I: Sha Po Lang 3: Paradox, Zebraman 2: Attack on Zebra City, The Monkey King, The Vanished Murderer

By: Jay's Movie Blog


My shelves of media are what you might call a large number of ambitious projects all jammed into the same space, the inevitable consequence of my being paid well enough to get a copy of any movie or book that interests me despite knowing that I proba...

This Week In Tickets: 29 January 2018 - February 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Two handwritten notes on the calendar means I actually watched two of the Blu-rays that have been sitting on my shelf long enough to have moved at least once. On the other hand, nine came in the mail, which is not really a sustainable pace. The w...

As much as this review is a lot of "Jay really likes the Spierig Brothers and what they do well is why the movie is as good as it is", I have to admit that I probably won't ever see all their features. One of them is Jigsaw, which despite...

This Week In Tickets: 22 January 2018 - 28 January 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Some late-ish nights at work, so no moviegoing during the week, but even if I were particularlly worried about falling behind my movie-a-day pace for the new year - which I'm not, really, at least not enough to binge if I start falling behind - I kne...

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...

This Week In Tickets: 1 January 2018 - 7 January 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


First of the new year with movies from the new year, keeping up the one-per-day pace. Kind of liking the layout of this year's planner, too. It's smallish, but the layout works pretty well if I keep to one stub a day, with some extra room around...

Silly & Supernatural from China: Goldbuster & Hanson and the Beast

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I take notes in foreign movies so I remember character names later, and, brother, was I happy to see Goldbuster just lay everything right out in the first five minutes. Extra star for that, although docked half a star for not having any sort of Engli...

Checking out AMC South Bay: Greatest Showman & Dolby Star Wars: The Last Jedi

By: Jay's Movie Blog


It's been three and a half years since the last theater opened in the Boston area, with AMC Assembly Row starting operations just a few months after the Showcase Cinemas SuperLux in Chestnut Hill. There has been a lot of upgrading since then - Fresh...

But Is the Premise Weird Enough?: Bleeding Steel & Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Good luck, big special-effects-based movies, getting released within a week of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. You were extremely unlikely to be nearly as good as that one, which is genuinely terrific, but maybe you can get some overflow from the people w...
