These Weeks in Tickets: 19 August 2019 - 1 September 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog

7Sep2019

The end of summer comes to the movies with a whimper every year, but I kind of don't mind this year. I was kind of movied-out and the profile of these last two weeks shows it. Both weeks started out with film noir double features at the Bratt...

Fantasia 2019.51: Killerman

By: Jay's Movie Blog

2Sep2019

No, Fantasia has not actually been going on for seven weeks plus, but if it did, I suspect there are folks in Montreal who would be down for it. It would probably be too much for me to stretch my vacation time going up there, though. Still, when a...

IFFBoston 2019.05: One Child Nation, The Pollinators, Cold Case Hammarskjöld, and For the BIrds

By: Jay's Movie Blog

28Aug2019

Sunday at IFFBoston wasn't quite planned as a documentary day but wound up that way once the overlapping showtimes, need to get back and forth on the subway (though I think this was the first year in a long time when the MBTA didn't have the Red Line...

47 Meters Down: Uncaged

By: Jay's Movie Blog

26Aug2019

The thing about staying for the end credits of is that sometimes you see something that makes you curious but you really don't know enough to see if it means anything. Like, say, when they get to the Dominican Republic part of the shoot and there's...

This Week in Tickets: 12 August 2019 - 18 August 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog

25Aug2019

The next time someone talks about superhero movie fatigue, remind them that the Brattle was able to program a whole series of films noirs celebrating their 75th anniversary this summer, and I don't know how many people were talking about "murder...

IFFBoston 2019.02: Them That Follow & The Death of Dick Long

By: Jay's Movie Blog

17Aug2019

So very late. Mostly because I've been busy with fun things, sure, and because I was trying to catch up with the previous festival, but also because the plan of doing quick write-ups on Letterboxd while waiting in line apparently didn't happen with...

This Week in Tickets: 5 August 2019 - 11 August 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog

12Aug2019

Back from Montreal, and London not long before that, and Hong Kong a little while earlier, and I'll often say the MBTA isn't that bad, but, yikes, while those places aren't perfect, there's a certain basic level of reliability to their public transpo...

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

1Aug2019

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 2019.15: Shooting the Mafia, Lake Michigan Monster, Miss & Mrs. Cops, and DJ XL5's Nine Lives Zappin Party

By: Jay's Movie Blog

30Jul2019

The Zappin Party is usually a couple days earlier, but putting it at roughly the two-thirds mark isn't a bad idea. You've made it more than halfway! And got to one of the few documentaries in the festival. Looking at the program, apparently there...

Fantasia 2019.14: Daniel Isn't Real, House of Hummingbird, and Hard-Core

By: Jay's Movie Blog

29Jul2019

The fact that I'm writing about Fantasia's two-week mark four days later and the dang thing still isn't over is kind of crazy. Remember this when the lightweights in Texas start talking about Fantastic Fest being a lot after three days in September.

Fantasia 2019.13: A Good Man Is Hard to Find, Black Magic for White Boys, The Father's Shadow, and Door Lock

By: Jay's Movie Blog

27Jul2019

Moviewatching started at noon on Tuesday, meaning this seemingly innocuous day in the middle of the festival could have been one of the busiest if not for the two houses having staggered times and leaving me with a big chunk of time to get groceries...

Fantasia 2019.11: Cencoroll Connect, Boxer's Omen, Purity of Vengeance, Dance with Me, and Satanic Panic

By: Jay's Movie Blog

26Jul2019

Not a whole lot of guests in the movies I went to on Sunday, but as the halfway mark, it's another good chance to do some counting: 35 features, 26 shorts, 9 attached and 17 as part of two programs. That actually gets my feature pace down a bit, to...

Fantasia 2019.10: Ride Your Wave, The Prey, Born of Woman '19, The Incredible Shrinking Wknd, and 8

By: Jay's Movie Blog

25Jul2019

Is there a place near Concordia that does a nice, simple omurice? It was all that the little girl in It Comes wanted and apparently the comfort food of choice for the couple in Ride Your Wave. A dish shows up twice in less than 48 hours at a film f...

Fantasia 2019.09: Blood on Her Name, It Comes, The Wretched, and Alien Crystal Palace

By: Jay's Movie Blog

21Jul2019

Market weekend started Thursday, I think, but people really started showing up on Friday, so it's probably a bit more important to get in line early and such. Hopefully that means Matthew Pope and Don Thompson can get find some distribution for Bl...

Fantasia 2019.08: Maggie, No Mercy, and Knives and Skin

By: Jay's Movie Blog

19Jul2019

Short day, but one with guests aplenty! First up, director Yi Okseop and co-writer/co-producer/co-star Koo Gyo-Hwan of Maggie, which was interesting in part because it was funded as part of a program that has a yearly theme, this year's being &quo...
