Suzume, and Makoto Shinkai becoming the one of biggest names in anime

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I mentioned in the "Next Week" post that it's kind of crazy to me that Makoto Shinkai is such a big deal now. I saw The Place Promised in Our Early Years at the first Fantasia festival I attended, and "Voices of a Distant Star" s...

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...

Silents, Please: Annie Laurie and Cinderella (1914)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


A couple of these ago, accompanist Jeff Raising mentioned that some hard-to-find silent or other wound up being so good that there ought to be a Kickstarter to get it on disc. I don't think it was this one, which recently went live, but I backed it...

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...

The Amazing Maurice

By: Jay's Movie Blog


What's "doing well" in theaters for a movie like The Amazing Maurice these days? I saw it on its fourth weekend at Fresh Pond, in a 34-person auditorium that was maybe half-full, and I'd be surprised if it was ever in any larger rooms.over...

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 13: Zu: Warriors From the Magic Mountain and Sex & Zen 3D: Extreme Ecstasy

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Oops, I skipped Mookie and Bruce wound up going first this round! Not that it really matters, because this is not a real game as opposed to a game-shaed thing, but fortunately fate made it up to Mookie. Bruce rolls a 17 and lands in the Tsui Hark...

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 9: The Dragon Chronicles: The Maidens of Heavenly Mountain and Mr. & Mrs. Gambler

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'm not sure whether the "Western" or "Chinese" section of the gameboard is larger, but I have to admit that the Western one feels a bit more diverse; the random impulse buys from Kino Lorber seem to cast a bigger net than when I'...

Film Rolls, Round 7: The Dead and the Deadly and The Haunted Cop Shop

By: Jay's Movie Blog


This isn't the first round that works as a themed pairing - things started off with two silent collections, after all - but the board has kind of been set up to make it relatively rare, with the boxes mostly ordered in such a way that you'll jump fro...

Good and Bad: Decision to Leave and Black Adam

By: Jay's Movie Blog


This was a double feature built out of potential necessity; the work week bled into Saturday and I had no idea how long Decision to Leave would be for theaters and figured I probably ought to see Black Adam both while it was on the fancy screen and b...
