15Aug2018

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...

Watch: Superb 'Cloverfield'-Inspired Sci-Fi Action Short Film 'Megan'

By: FirstShowing.net

13Aug2018


"The old man wasn't that crazy after all, was he?" Time to dip our toes back into the Cloverfield universe. Megan is an impressive "proof-of-concept" 5-min sci-fi short film by a Polish VFX designer / filmmaker named Greg Strasz. It's directly inspir...

The Meg

By: Jay's Movie Blog

13Aug2018

Strongly tempted to pair this one with The Island for a "Chinese movies about danger in the middle of the ocean" post, but it's really not Chinese enough, despite the setting, a fair chunk of the cast, and the fact that it certainly seems l...

Fantasia 2018.19: Number 37, Cinderella the Cat, Heavy Trip, and Tokyo Vampire Hotel

By: Jay's Movie Blog

31Jul2018

Going to have to circle back around for Sunday, because it was shorts day, and there's twenty of those things which probably take a half-hour each to write up even if they only lasted five minutes. Remember that the next time you say critics are pai...

Fantasia 2018.12: The Dark, I Am a Hero, Luz, The Witch in the Window, and Inuyashiki

By: Jay's Movie Blog

24Jul2018

Monday, apparently, is the day you want to come to Fantasia if you like seeing directors talk about their movies. That there is The Dark director Justin P. Lange on the right. He made a pretty nifty movie with enough sharp turns that it made my g...

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

21Jul2018

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 2018.08: Hurt, Under the Silver Lake, Laplace's Witch

By: Jay's Movie Blog

20Jul2018

Did a press screening today, and it was weird - about ten people in the Hall theater for a horror movie, which tend to work much better with a big audience. It would have been even stranger if we were all clustered in the same area because we all th...

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

19Jul2018

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

18Jul2018

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...
