Fantasia 2018 Catch-Up 04: Chained for Life, Blue My Mind, A Rough Draft, Bleach, Laughing Under the Clouds, Punk Samurai Slash Down, Terrified, Number 37, Cinderella the Cat, The Brink '18, and What a Man Wants

By: Jay's Movie Blog


How do you manage to be able to keep writing reviews for films you saw at a festival that ended eight months ago and mark your progress in doing so? Drawing that "X" is incredibly satisfying, and I've managed to do it 82 times for Fantas...

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...

If Beale Street Could Talk

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Is this kind of a ringer to make sure that my first movie seen in 2019 is a good one? Yeah, a bit, although plan A was for it to end 2018 on a good note, but I got lazy on New Year's Eve. Those random vacation days are for the birds. Maybe I'm bet...

This Week in Tickets: 5 November 2018 - 11 November 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Hey, I made some progress on recent Blu-ray orders, in part because scheduling got weird with other stuff. First up: I suppose there were more pressing gaps than The Great Buster: A Celebration on Tuesday, especially since I know it's going to b...

Last Letter '18

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Boy, can checking up on what's coming out in a given week supply you with interesting surprises. I was kind of ready to pass on this week's Chinese opening - it sure looked like the kind of sentimental thing I often pass up - until I noticed the nam...

Independent Film Festival Boston 2018.179: Cold War, Rafiki, Shoplifters, and Vox Lux

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Today in unintentional themes, the power of pop music. Cold War lights up when "Rock Around the Clock" plays on a jukebox, Rafiki opens with a sort of poppy score that probably had me liking the movie as a whole a lot more for the good moo...

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...

This Week in Tickets: 13 August 2018 - 19 August 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


One of the awesome nieces had a birthday this week, which is the best way to have one's moviegoing time limited, what with the shopping, traveling, and exchanging presents for a slice of cake. The week was actually hot enough that I kind of found...

The Island

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Only one trailer for another Chinese movie before this one, but it was for Project Gutenberg, which comes out the week of my birthday and features Chow Yun-fat in what seems like his first "coolest damn criminal on Earth" role in quite a wh...

Fantasia 2018.21: What A Man Wants, Madeline's Madeline, Big Brother, and Saint Bernard Syndicate

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Day 21 is the official closing night of Fantasia, and it included an email reminder that, really, you're not getting into Mandy with your pass, although we had been told that they would be admitting press to Big Brother, and tickets could actually be...

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 2018.04: 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...

This Week in Tickets: 2 July 2018 - 8 July 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Would have seen more, but it is really difficult to convince myself I was in the mood for certain movies. I mean, Hereditary is a 127-minute horror movie, and it is difficult to get up for that. On top of that, it was a week of trying to get ahe...

Brother of the Year

By: Jay's Movie Blog


What a peculiar release this is: a Thai film that played its native land back in May and appears to have been picked up by an Australian distributor (though it does not appear on their website) that also booked it in some North American theaters with...
