Fagara

15Sep2019

I think Fagara is one of the bigger local releases in Hong Kong this year; it was getting prominent placement on the Hong Kong film times app that is still hanging around on my phone when I checked it for other reasons a month ago, and maybe more. I...

Next Week in Tickets: Films playing Boston 13 September 2019 - 19 September 2019

13Sep2019

Does the Toronto International Film Festival run another weekend, or did it end on Thursday? In the former, a couple of its bigger entries are hitting theaters even before it's finished. The one people seem to be excited about is Hustlers, with Con...

Rezo

12Sep2019

I have a couple of Russian co-workers, and I should probably ask them how popular and well-remembered Revan "Rezo" Gabriadze and his films still are. Probably not well-known as a filmmaker - or maybe writers get remembered more in Russia -...

This Week in Tickets: 2 September 2019 - 8 September 2019

9Sep2019

You may see a lot of empty white space on these pages; I see the weekend that I finally reached the bottom of the stack of comics that's been growing since I went to London for vacation. (And, good gravy, is DC a disaster right now. It seems lik...

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

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...

Next Week in Tickets: Films playing Boston 6 September 2019 - 12 September 2019

6Sep2019

Really just one movie opening this weekend. That's… It. It Chapter Two to be precise, with the cast of the first returning plus Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, and more as the adult versions of the kids from the pretty-decent first.

IFFBoston 2019.03: Pizza: A Love Story and Not for Resale

3Sep2019

Both Thursday and Friday wound up being loosely-themed double features for me, though Nancy and the rest of the Festival team don't necessarily plan it that way (I did have to get on the T between Them That Follow and The Death of Dick Long for my &q...

Fantasia 2019.51: Killerman

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...

30Aug2019

Apparently Labor Day weekend is a terrible time to open hits, but a great one to open weird stuff. Or foreign films, as the biggest hit of the summer in China makes its way to the US, with Nezha playing in Imax 3D at Boston Common through Wednesday,...

NeZha

30Aug2019

It's been a weird summer at the Chinese box office, as the new certification board has proven much more strict and capricious, with release dates yanked at the last moment and all sorts of other chaos. Still, $630M in ticket sales doesn't happen jus...

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

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

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

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...

Next Week in Tickets: Films playing Boston 23 August 2019 - 29 August 2019

23Aug2019

Summer is winding right down, isn't it? Ready or Not opened up on Wednesday, and it's a fair amount of fun, good in the details of its family who has a ritual of sacrificing new people who enter the family even if it could use one or two really good...
