"The Haunted Swordsman" and Bacurau

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Believe it or not, this past weekend would have been the Boston Underground Film Festival, which vanished in a puff when the folks at BUFF and the Brattle recognized that it would not be physical-distancing-friendly at all. It would have been a bumm...

Fantastic Fungi

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Hey, it's a (semi) new release during the pandemic! It's one of two currently playing at the Virtual Coolidge Corner Theatre, and the easiest to watch on my TV - I'd kind of meant to get the Vimeo app downloaded to my Roku anyway. Also, $5, with a...

It's not always a complete failure of imagination to see a movie while on vacation in a foreign land, but sometimes it can feel that way, especially if you wind up seeing something that is a wide release also playing back home. Still, there's not mu...

This Week in Tickets: 24 February 2020 - 1 March 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Huh. See if you can spot the weird thing on the tickets below. Because the printed tickets at Boston Common now appear to lack certain bits of useful information after they've been torn (which makes how they've stopped updating the signs for whi...

The Invisible Man '20

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Oh, crap, I'm going to get more emails and comments about not liking that other version again, aren't I? And it seems like they've just stopped. At any rate, it's well worth checking this one out in the nice theaters - there was good rumble in the...

This Week in Tickets: 17 February 2020 - 23 February 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Ah, I missed The Man Standing Next in last week's update. Big open space there that wasn't like me. Well, not entirely unlike me, sometimes I have weeks where there's not a whole lot that excites me, I get held up at work, and then, for all that...

The Call of the Wild '20

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Boy, did this particular movie get caught up in the who deal of Disney acquiring Twentieth Century Fox - it seemed like it got shuffled around the schedule, then a bunch of trailers popped up, the online ads seemed to imply it was being brought under...

These Weeks in Tickets: 3 February 2020 - 16 February 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The Oscars now landing smack in the middle of the Sci-Fi Film Festival can make for some crazy time, especially when there's other stuff too. With the Oscars just days away, I barely had time to catch the Nominated Live-Action Shorts before th...

Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival 2020.09: Volition, I Am REN, and Blood Quantum

By: Jay's Movie Blog


There were some things I might have wanted to see earlier in the day, but I wasn't really feeling like going out yet, since as was the case the night before, my stomach was in bad shape. I actually would wind up conking out a bit during Volition, en...

Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival 2020.02: The Dustwalker, Synchronic, Sea Fever

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'm not going to lie - with a marquee that wide, I'm mildly disappointed that someone didn't go for the entire (original) title of Birds of Prey, but as you can see, there's just too much else going on at the Somerville to put all that up. Like I sa...

Fantasia 2019 Catch-up, Part 2: The Deeper You Dig, Away, Jade's Asylum, Almost a Miracle, The Wonderland, Hit-and-Run Squad, Dreamland, Chiwawa, Porno, and Mystery of the Night

By: Jay's Movie Blog


On the one hand, I'm sad that Away didn't wind up getting a theatrical release, because I really loved it and the audience was into it. On the other, you can purchase it on Amazon Prime Video for six bucks in HD. You can also rent it for two or thr...

Short Stuff: The 2019 Oscar-Nominated Live-Action Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Though I'll be watching the Oscars on Sunday with no small amount of interest in who receives awards, I genuinely do believe that the most important part of awards season is the period between nominations being announced and the actual ceremony; it's...

Things to Come: The Birth of Sci-Fi Cinema at the Brattle

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The Brattle Theatre is doing a year-long series of series for science fiction film this year, which is quite obviously a Thing I Am Excited About, enough so that I hunkered down for most of a series for the first time in months, perhaps longer if fes...

Short Stuff: The 2019 Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Most years, the program for the Oscar-nominated animated shorts is built with an eye toward family-friendliness, often arranged to put the one or two entries that might prove to be too much for the younger viewers at the end so that parents with smal...

Short Stuff: The 2019 Oscar-Nominated Documentary Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


This is the first year that a local theater has shown the year's documentary shorts as a single block, rather than broken into two, for which I'm grateful: Aside from being a bit easier to schedule with so little time between the short film packages...
