Doctor Sleep

15Nov2019

I kind of expected this to be in the big room at the Somerville Theatre, but instead it was on screen #2 - maybe not quite their smallest there now, but still usually one for niche movies and things that have been around for a little bit. That's not...

Next Week in Tickets: Films playing Boston 15 November 2019 - 21 November 2019

15Nov2019

Remember, the Red Line is messed up this weekend, from Kendall to Broadway, so allow yourself some extra time. The biggest thing coming out this weekend (by one measure) is Ford v Ferrari, featuring Matt Damon and Christian Bale as an engineer and d...

Chinese Crime: My Dear Liar & Better Days

12Nov2019

I've said it before, but I'm kind of tired of writing about how "crime does not pay" makes for lousy movies, not so much because that end is bad in and of itself, but because you can often see how the writers have to twist in order to satis...

IFFBoston 2019.193: The Wild Goose Lake & The Truth

9Nov2019

The Fall Focus seemed a bit more like a preview series this year, with most of the films having releases coming up pretty soon - some would begin their rollouts the very next weekend - but the ones I wound up seeing were those whose theatrical releas...

Next Week in Tickets: Films playing Boston 8 November 2019 - 14 November 2019

8Nov2019

A lot to see this weekend, and the rain and MBTA have kept me from getting a head start on it. Well, probably more traffic that their buses got stuck in than the MBTA itself, but, still, not pleased! Let's start off with the stuff from China, which...

Terminator: Dark Fate

2Nov2019

I've got a bad habit of not buying tickets for the IFFBoston Fall Focus in advance (because who knows what's going on a week from now, right?), so by the time I was checking things at work on Friday, Marriage Story was already sold out, but like a lo...

Next Week in Tickets: Films playing Boston 1 November 2019 - 7 November 2019

1Nov2019

You know, I could have sworn I saw previews for Terminator: Dark Fate in 3D earlier this year, but (checks Hong Kong showtime app) it's not even being shown that way internationally. Go figure. But before going there, stop at The Brattle Theatre fo...

Farming

31Oct2019

Sometime I'm going to have to go back and see just how often a movie being obviously four-walled at the Regent coincides with Indian holidays having Fresh Pond full up with imports and not able to give movies with this profile - festival appearances,...

This Week in Tickets: 21 October 2019 - 27 October 2019

29Oct2019

Hurrah for finally seeing things which everybody almost certainly would assume I've seen already! That probably doesn't include Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which had more 3D screenings at Boston Common than I would have expected from how they'v...

Fantasia 2019.19: Depraved, The Odd Family: Zombie On Sale, and Day and Night

28Oct2019

Was Lary Fessenden in town the previous night to host Depraved the previous night? I don't recall, although I was a bit sad that I didn't get to see something in the museum. Not a whole lot of exciting stories from this day - no guests at my screen...

Next Week in Tickets: Films playing Boston 25 October 2019 - 31 October 2019

25Oct2019

A lot of talk lately about Disney making it much harder for theaters to rent Fox classics, with the exception being The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but it feels like all the Boston-area theaters are booking it for Halloween anyway, just in case they d...

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

23Oct2019

You know, I haven't really loved these movies - this one especially kind of bored me - but you've kind of got to respect a series made for kids based on a Disney animated classic whose first entry is basically about a woman who has been traumatized b...

This Week in Tickets: 14 October 2019 - 20 October 2019

23Oct2019

You ever wind up running late for a movie, slinking home frustrated, and then feeling weirdly vindicated when you really need to go to the bathroom right smack in the middle of when the movie would be? No, me neither. Moviegoing time was also cu...

"Buff-O-Ween": Tammy and the T-Rex

21Oct2019

This wound up being the only other "Buff-O-Ween" show I attended after Thursday's opening night, what with having already seen some things at Fantasia and having transit issues and the like, but I'm glad I did - Tammy and the T-Rex is exact...
