Fantasia 2018.20: The Brink, River's Edge, Arizona, and Montreal Dead End

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Another quiet day as the festival winds down and guests from out of town are relatively scant, and there's a temptation to wonder if maybe the festival does run a bit long, but by now there's just a couple days left so why not hit the full three week...

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

By: Jay's Movie Blog


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 2018.17: 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 2018.14: Blue My Mind and Anna and the Apocalypse

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Remember what I said about patterns being easy to see when you have short schedule days? It was teenage girls having high school go to hell yesterday. I can't say I loved Blue My Mind, but it's not exactly for me in one sense, though I suppose it i...

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 2018.07: 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 2018.03: Hanagatami, Unity of Heroes, True Fiction, Buffalo Boys, and Summer of '84

By: Jay's Movie Blog


This was not a great day to have a cold, folks. Not only was it a five-film day, but almost all of them seemed to be dragged out in one way or another. Just got myself a whole bunch of cold medicine, so I'll probably be in better shape over the nex...

These Those Weeks In Tickets: 23 April 2018 - 6 May 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Four days until Fantasia starts (in July), so it's time to put the final bow on my blogging about Independent Film Festival Boston (back in April and May). Might as well get right to it, then, without making the dumb mistake I did when writing...

This That Week In Tickets: 16 April 2018 - 22 April 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I think this was a kind of busy work week, although not necessarily in the way such weeks usually work out. It was a week of Agile project-planning stuff at work, which often means a lot of time stuck in meetings and unwanted after-work activitie...

This Week In Tickets: 11 June 2018 - 17 June 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Yes, I enjoy both 35mm prints and 3D movies. They're both a lot of fun. I wasn't going to do the early show of The Incredibles (and its attached short, "Bao"); I got down to Boston Common for another movie and MoviePass started acting...

Independent Film Festival Boston 2018.02: Crime + Punishment & "Arlington" Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The unpredictability of festivals: Showing up well ahead of time for your first movie of the day, finding out that the documentary work-in-progress event from earlier was still going on so it's probably going to be dicey trying to make your second s...

Boston Underground Film Festival 2018.05: "The Ghost in You", MexMan, Tigers Are Not Afraid, and Good Manners

By: Jay's Movie Blog


BUFF can fill a weekend up, and staying up for the midnight secret screening, so I was just not making it to the noon presentation of "Something Wicked This Way Comes", which in the couple years since Wicked Bird Media showed a promo reel a...


By: Jay's Movie Blog


It's not entirely unusual for a movie to wait a week between its initial American opening and playing Boston, but I don't really get the impression that Neon and Stage 6 were doing a tiered opening for this. In fact, I strongly suspect that Boston C...

Boston Underground Film Festival 2018.02: Pin Cushion & The Theta Girl

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Thursday evening, when you can get a seat at Bartley's before the movie because a lot of folks aren't going out and the first feature film starts at 7:45pm due to some combination of a packed shorts package on the one end and shorter movies on the ot...

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...
