Recent from China: Full River Red and Post Truth

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I wonder, idly, if piracy is less of a concern now than it was when Chinese movies started playing day-and-date in America roughly 12 years ago, because this year's Lunar New Year have been doled out over the past couple months as opposed to all drop...

This Week in Tickets: 20 February 2023 - 26 February 2023 (Universal Horror 2023)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I was telling myself that I might hit the midnights at the Coolidge more often, but Friday night I really didn't want to be waiting for a cab outside the Coolidge after the Green Line or 66 stopped running - and, sure, maybe there would be a late one...

Hidden Blade

By: Jay's Movie Blog


You know, I don't think we're actually going to get A Guilty Conscience playing Boston Common, given that the date on that standee is a month ago. I suppose it could wind up here now because it's apparently the number one movie in Mainland China aft...

This Week in Tickets: 6 February 2023 - 12 February 2023 (Staying In Edition)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Very short week for, uh, reasons. So, remember last week, when pipes in my walls burst? Well, my landlord wasn't able to get my shower put together until Tuesday, so I kind of stayed away from theaters early in the week out of deference to folks...

The Wandering Earth II

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Happy Lunar New Year to all those who celebrate, and for the rest of us, I hope you also had a good Sunday! I meant to get a photo of the other standee for a Chinese New Year release that's hanging around a corner of the AMC Boston Common theater bu...

This Week in Tickets: 16 January 2023 - 22 January 2023 (Happy Lunar New Year!)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'll be much less wordy this week, since I think we got the whole mission statement out of the way and it was a relatively quiet, though not uneven, couple pages: It was mostly quiet nights in, between work running late enough that I wasn't getti...

Moon Man

By: Jay's Movie Blog


As much as I talk big about wanting to open a small-ish movie theater someday and play oddball things in it, the estimating of it seems daunting. Take Moon Man - opens late July in China, doesn't make it across the Pacific for a month or so, and so...

Fantasia 2022.17: Island of Lost Girls, The Pass: Last Days of the Samurai, Circo Animato, "The Cradle", Sadako DX, and Missing

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'm mildly surprised that the Schmidt family didn't make it to Montreal for Island of Lost Girls on Saturday morning. I imagine that Covid throws a wrench in that sort of thing, but I also suspect that if I'd somehow made a film with my family like...

Fantasia 2022.10: Anime no Bento, Demigod: The Legend Begins, "Aurora", My Grandfather's Demons, "Hairsucker", Deadstream, and Kappei

By: Jay's Movie Blog


A very animated Saturday, as my "grew up in the 1980s and that's when you watched cartoons" brain says should be the case. Sure, Demigod is technically puppetry, but you get the idea. Just the one guest, My Grandfather's Demons director...

Hong Kong Saturdays: Revolution of Our Times, Angel, Blood Ritual, Hard Boiled, Nobody's Hero, The Magic Crane, Devil Hunters, and Man on the Edge

By: Jay's Movie Blog


One doesn't really plan for things to wind up this way, but it's kind of cool when it does: Three Saturdays, three different sorts of Hong Kong movies, in different locations and with different perspectives. First up, I was mildly surprised to see...

Sunday double feature: Sundown and The Battle at Lake Changjin II

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I miss writing on the bus to and from work - it was an hour a day with pretty much no distractions, and it made it much harder to fall behind like this, where I'm posting this three weeks after the fact because even though I want to keep this blog up...

Too Cool to Kill

By: Jay's Movie Blog


You probably don't want me on your movie trivia team; as much as I've watched a lot of movies and retained a fair amount of them, it's not exactly organized well in my head. Someone will ask me a question and I'll go to IMDB because they've got a wh...

The Battle at Lake Changjin

By: Jay's Movie Blog


It's an odd feeling to sit in a Boston theater for a Chinese movie and hear folks in the audience applaud as the subtitled text talks about "our" army defeating the Imperialist Americans. Sure, I knew what I was getting into when I got a t...
