Film Rolls, Round 16: X Y & Zee and A Reason to Live, a Reason to Die

By: Jay's Movie Blog


When "season two" happens post-Fantasia, I'm going to make a much more earnest attempt to keep up with what the score is rather than just calculating it as I do the posts. Or maybe at least do the posts much more quickly, so that I know th...

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...

Happy (Belated) St. Patrick's Day: The Quiet Girl and Unwelcome

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I've mentioned that there isn't an Irish Film Festival around Saint Patrick's Day this year, although the group isn't defunct - they recently refreshed their website a bit and hosted the director of The Quiet Girl for a preview show at the Coolidge a...

Peter Greenaway x 4: The Draughtsman's Contract, A Zed & Two Noughts, The Belly of an Architect, and Drowning by Numbers

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Peter Greenaway is a filmmaker who has kind of been at the edge of my awareness for a while: I probably didn't catch his name when The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover was raising eyebrows for getting into some mainstream theaters despite i...

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...

This Week in Tickets: 13 February 2023 - 19 February 2023 (A Couple of Classics)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


It was a pretty good week for seeing movies on the big screen, new and old. I started off with the first of a couple Film Rolls things from South Korea - EXIT on Monday night and lucky Chan-Sil on Thursday, which are both relatively recent and at...

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...

Film Rolls, Round 12: Lady in a Cage and July Rhapsody

By: Jay's Movie Blog


We're at what may be my favorite part of the gameboard here, where American cinema exits the Golden Age and where Hong Kong is hitting its heyday; it's an impressive run of anything-can-happen material, between weird and just generally interesting.

Silents, Please!: Within Our Gates and The Other Woman's Story

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Hey, "Silents, Please!" is back! I think this is the first official entry since the Rin Tin Tin double feature in early 2020 that was still on the showtimes board throughout the Somerville's pandemic closure and renovation. It's not the f...

This Week in Tickets: 30 January 2023 - 5 February 2023 (Winter Weather Edition)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


January ends with some Oscar catch-up, a reminder that climate change hasn't completely defanged New England winter, and more good stuff. Things kicked off with a rare-ish Monday night at the movies to see Glass Onion a second time, since I don't...

Only one more day and showtime for Jethica at the Brattle (Monday 6 February at 9pm), and maybe don't sleep on it if you can make it. It will be available for rental pretty quick - 14 February on Amazon, and it may already be available in some count...

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...

Film Rolls, Round 10: The Other Side of Gentleman and Le Doulos

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Oops, another case where I ordered something in a Kino Lorber sale because I didn't recognize it but thought it sounded good, though the reason it sounded good was because the description was actually that of a movie I've seen and enjoyed. Well, goo...

This Week in Tickets: 2 January 2023 - 15 January 2023 (Being Also a Reassessment of This Blog's Purpose Going Forward)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Holy crap, have I really not done one of these since mid-2020, when it was all virtual tickets because of the pandemic? That's crazy! But also not - I've been logging on Letterboxd pretty constantly since March 2017, and that's easy. I can do it o...

Nollywood!: Battle on Buka Street

By: Jay's Movie Blog


There are different sizes and sorts of blind spots you can have as a person who is into movies. You can have not seen something that's been out in theaters for a bit and everyone would assume you've seen; it took me months to get around to Top Gun:...
