Two from the Chinas: Always Miss You & Savage '19

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I wonder, just a bit, if these two movies might be holding up better ones playing Boston. Well Go seems to have pushed its release of Shadow back a week upon acquiring distribution rights for Savage, and I can't necessarily blame them for that: Chi...

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...

This Week in Tickets: 26 November 2018 - 2 December 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The theme for this week: Use the chance to see something in theaters wisely. What that means is that when The Great Buddha+ shows up on the Harvard Film Archive's schedule after you've been seeing the distributor tweet it up for a year (though s...

The Great Buddha+

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The Great Buddha+ is a true art-house film, and has had a release that fits that - New York and Los Angeles back in January, streaming, spots at festivals and other short bookings, and heading back to theaters for an end-of-year push, presumably rela...

Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival 2018.07-08: Division 19, Paradoxical, and Framed

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Gonna keep this fairly brief, because a better festival looms, the details of these movies are falling out of the back of my brain, and, not to put too fine a point on it, we're kind of in "if you can't say anything nice…" territory. S...

New York Asian Film Festival 2017.03: Village of No Return, Japanese Girls Never Die, Mon Mon Mon Monsters, and Blood of Youth

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Four films the day before, a relatively early walk back to the AirBNB, sleeping on something pretty couch-like, ad then back at it again. I started the day with Bong Joon-ho's Okja, and if I'm lucky and nobody chases me away from this AC outlet, the...

New York Asian Film Festival 2017.02: Saving Sally, A Single Rider, The Gangster's Daughter, and Extraordinary Mission

By: Jay's Movie Blog


It's a real shame that it often takes me saying "hey, I can do something else in New York while I'm there!" to get me to the New York Asian Film Festival, but it does. It runs right into Fantasia - my favorite film festival - on the schedu...

Chinese Romantic Fantasies: Beautiful Accident & DiDi's Dream

By: Jay's Movie Blog


So much Chinese cinema hit Boston screens this weekend that one movie wound up at Fenway, which is where China Lion stuff came out for a while between their deal with AMC expiring and the guys program Boston Common realizing that Chinatown was right...

This Week In Tickets: 15 November 2015 - 21 November 2015

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Not a lot this week, but other stuff kept popping up to keep me from actually writing up stuff from early in the week After hitting the HFA for Guy Maddin on the previous Saturday, I spent a fair amount more time there - Angel Face for Five O'Clo...

Our Times

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I don't necessarily complain about how a lot of the Chinese and Taiwanese movies hitting the United States are kind of similar in the review, but I really have seen enough of these nostalgic romances over the past few years to feel pretty much done.

These Weeks In Tickets: 25 October 2015 - 7 November 2015

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Another busy couple of weeks where everything seemed to demand a full review. Good news, though - I finally got my tablet back and so I can now work on such things without lugging my laptop on the bus or other places. As I mentioned at the ti...

Independent Film Festival Boston 2015½: Where to Invade Next, Entertainment, The Asssassin, Anomalisa

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I said it in last week's "preview" post and it bears repeating here: This sort of mini-fest midway between two of a film festival's annual editions is a brilliant idea that more should pick up on. While I suspect that most of the films pr...

Fantasia Catch-up #01: Bridgend, Cruel, Assassination Classroom, Cooties, Teana: 10000 Years Later, Black & White: The Dawn of Justice, The Shamer's Daughter, Extinction, Deathgasm

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Remember, folks, as long as we keep Fantasia in our hearts, it can last all year round! Or, at least, for another month or so, if you watched nearly ninety movies in just over three weeks and had no time to write up the full reviews that justify you...
