This Week in Tickets: 3 June 2019 - 9 June 2019

14Jun2019

Nothing better than living in Noir City for the weekend. Well, sort of. An actual noir city would be a dangerous place where you can't trust anyone and life is cheap, but the Brattle when they're showing noirs all weekend is pretty nice. The we...

Next Week in Tickets: Films playing Boston 7 June 2019 - 13 June 2019

14Jun2019

It's a weird stage of the summer, when everything at the Coolidge is also playing at more mainstream theaters, and it's not necessarily awards stuff. But maybe, if folks start looking back when voting this year... First up is Late Night, with Mindy...

Chasing the Dragon II: Wild Wild Bunch

11Jun2019

I understand why AMC booked this out of the two Asian gangster movies Well Go had opening this week - they're next to Chinatown, not a Korean neighborhood, and Ma Dong-seok has not quite broken through here yet. Still, that one seems to have people...

Difficult conditions at Fenway this week. On Tuesday, for instance, it was chilly and rainy and windy. I got there late enough to miss the start but early enough for a long rain delay. The game seemed to be going well enough, though, and then...

Double features and a double-dip. I'm not entirely sure about the Somerville's plans to move the 70mm/widescreen fest to May; the prints were nice but they didn't have a whole lot of room to get creative. Maybe with a full year to prep the next...

Boston Underground Film Festival 2019.04: Bucket of Truth, Nightshifter, Knife+Heart, and A Hole in the Ground

9Jun2019

You know what the best part of being behind on your blogging is? Trying to write up 14 short films with an average length of 7-ish minutes a month and a half later. You can either zip through it or make yourself absolutely crazy! Obviously, I we...

Do you like atmospheric crime stories? Because if you do, it's a good week. First off, it's Noir City weekend at The Brattle Theatre, with TCM host Eddie Mueller on hand for a full weekend of mostly 35mm double features: Trapped & The Turning...

My high-school experience was rather muted, for better or worse, which often makes it hard for me to connect to movies about teenagers. I'm always wondering if it was really that dramatic for everyone else or if every movie is just taking crazy libe...

Rocketman

4Jun2019

On the one hand, Elton John is one of the few musicians where I do, on occasion, do a quick search on Amazon to see if there's a new album coming out any time soon, and has been a favorite for a while; on the other, I tend to be so uninterested in mo...

31May2019

It's not like there's not enough coming out to fill the weekend, but no screen for the new De Palma, which is basically going straight to VOD, which is a sign of the times, I guess, especially when the movie is evidently not very good. But, it's not...

This Those Weeks in Tickets: 4 February 2019 - 24 February 2019

26May2019

February was a month of long days at the movies when I wasn't feeling lousy, whether they be actual marathons or just multiple movie days. The week started on Chinese New Year with The Wandering Earth, whose opening that day was kind of a s...

26May2019

A weird couple weeks, where a lot of moviegoing got concentrated. Doubly stubless: The Red Sox crushed the Mariners on 10 May, and there wasn't even a good place to mark it down on the page. No stub for Friday night's game both because the te...

Aladdin '19

25May2019

I may be a bit attached to the animated Aladdin - I would record the animated series on CBS Saturday mornings and as part of the Disney Afternoon even though the reason I wasn't watching it live was because I was at college, feeling kind of testy whe...
