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...

Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival 2018.09: Closer Than We Think, Muse, and Canaries

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'm not necessarily saying there's a diversity problem in sci-fi or genre filmmaking, but I kid you not, I had to double-check timestamps on my phone to make sure that there were indeed guests at three films rather than two. Sure, that's in part bec...

Late for Early Man

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Maybe I'm selling Peter Rabbit short here, but what the heck, America? Our cousins from across the pond have given us three family movies since the start of the new year, and that's the one we've made a hit, rather than Paddington 2 (a modest succes...

Short Stuff: The 2017 Oscar-Nominated Live-Action Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Every year that I write one of these wrap-ups, I point out that it's an awful shame that this collection of Oscar-nominated short films is the best chance many will get to see this kind of production which isn't expanded to a commercially-viable leng...

Short Stuff: The 2017 Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Or, "The 2018 Oscar-Nominated Shorts (Animation)", as the program would have it. They can say that officially so that it doesn't look stale, but I say that the proper title ought to refer to the year the films were released, and not the on...

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I am very glad that this one is getting at least part of a second week at Kendall Square (although with just early matinees, that basically means Saturday and Sunday for most people); it's a good movie that seems to have been counting on Oscar nomina...

This Week In Tickets: 8 January 2018 - 1 January 2018

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Not quite doing a movie every day, but keeping up a pretty good pace - and saw movies in seven different places! This time, it meant starting at home, finishing up the second half of a pair of Japanese films with The Bullet Train, which was not q...

Paddington 2

By: Jay's Movie Blog


So, which is more peculiar as a childless adult in one's mid-forties - seeing Paddington at a preview show with a mostly-empty theater, or showing up to a show full of families without any of your own? As much as you might get side-eye at the latter...

Darkest Hour (and the rest of 2017's "Dunkirk Trilogy")

By: Jay's Movie Blog


When I saw that Warner Brothers was re-releasing Dunkirk in Imax a couple weeks ago, both to give the theaters who were seeing Justice League admissions dropping off fast an alternative and to promote the upcoming home-video release, I began readying...

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...

Loving Vincent

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Good job, movie - you got booked at Kendall Square for a one-week engagement, but I caught you during week #3 when you still were still running a full schedule. You've made over a million bucks, which is not a small achievement for an animated film...

The Foreigner

By: Jay's Movie Blog


There's probably a great book to be written about Jackie Chan and the not-quite-inevitable rise of China, and how he went from courting the west in the 1990s as the specter of the handover hung over Hong Kong to being one of the most enthusiastic Hon...

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...

Fantasia 2017.14: 78/52, Friendly Beast, November, You Only Live Once, and DJ XL5's Cataclysmic Zappin' Party

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Busy day, kind of weird at spots, too: The director of 78/52 couldn't be there, but producers Annick Mahnert and Kerry Deignan Roy were, flanking King-Wei Chu during their post-screening Q&A. They mentioned that much of this project actually...

Fantasia 2017.03: International Sci-Fi Shorts, Mohawk, and Game of Death

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Loose schedule, but lots of guests! These good people are from the International Sci-Fi Shorts, with "Haskell" director James Allen Smith to the left of the hostess and "Hum" director Stefano Nurra, "The Sleepers" dir...
