This Week in Tickets: 9 September 2019 - 15 September 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Let us observe a brief moment of silence for MoviePass, which sputtered and hung on for far longer than was expected (or dignified). Even with the last year or so when I could almost never find a way to use it despite the regular $10/month charge ta...

I have a couple of Russian co-workers, and I should probably ask them how popular and well-remembered Revan "Rezo" Gabriadze and his films still are. Probably not well-known as a filmmaker - or maybe writers get remembered more in Russia -...

Fantasia 2019.17: White Snake, International Short Science-Fiction Film Showcase 2019, Kingdom, Why Don't You Just Die?, and Les Particules

By: Jay's Movie Blog


A long weekend day, built more or less around the short film program, though it started off with a Chinese animated movie, and it was the first time I can recall seeing a Warner Brothers logo in front of a mainland film. I hadn't realized that Warne...

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...

Short Stuff: The 2018 Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Every year, a package is put together with all the animated short films nominated for an Academy Award, plus a few to pad out the running time, and it's generally one of the most enjoyable cinema samplers to come out over the year, with a bunch of di...

Finding yourself with a surprisingly short day at the film festival and deciding to fit another movie in there may be signs that You Have A Problem, but I offer two things in my defense: First, it was a rainy evening but my rented apartment would pr...

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...

Fantasia 2017 catch-up, part 4: Thousand Cuts, A Thousand Junkies, Attraction, Jailbreak, Fashionista, Geek Girls, Mumon: Land of Stealth, Lu Over the Wall, Prey, and The Endless

By: Jay's Movie Blog


And that's 72 feature films reviewed on eFilmCritic for Fantasia, give or take - it's not counting A Taxi Driver, which opened in Boston the week I got back and was thus skipped in Montreal accordingly, but is counting Valerian and the City of a Thou...

Fantasia 2017.17: Attraction, "Cocolors", Jailbreak, and Fashionista

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The last weekend of the festival is best described as "there are many things you want to see and the fact that there are only a couple days left means there are far fewer second chances on the schedule, so suck it up and make choices you don't w...

Hardcore Henry

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Not much to say about this, since I wound up going because I missed my screening of April and the Extraordinary World and wasn't going to go through the rigmarole of dealing with part of the Red Line being replaced by shuttle-bus service for nothing.

Boston Sci-fi Film Festival 2016.07: Alienation, The Phoenix Incident, and Mafia: Survival Game

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Went out of order on this one, because The Phoenix Incident had a Fathom Events screening on Thursday, so I figured it would make sense to have the review out by then, as that would almost certainly be its biggest release, even if it has a regular re...

Short Stuff: The 2015 Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Of the three short film awards presented at the annual Oscars ceremony, the animation category is where most people are likely to feel some sort of routing interest because there's generally one entry that played before a feature, and this got seen,...

This Those Week In Tickets: 1 March 2015 - 14 March 2015

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Today in plans I had before falling waaay behind: A fair-sized post or two reviewing the silent movies I caught locally before heading to San Francisco for even more. But, on the other hand, look at those pages - as much as I love silents, th...
