Jason Watches LOGAN
And it's really good. Brutal, but good. Maybe the best comic book movie ever...except that it's arguably not a comic book movie. In fact, it explicitly takes place in a universe where X-MEN comic books exist, as some sort of pop-propaganda for their adventu...

Jason goes to Cinequest--Closing Night
After staying up partying until ~4:30 am (with the help of Daylight Savings Time...grrrr....) I was still up at 10 am for the first Stella in the VIP lounge before heading off to IMITATION GIRL. It's a beautifully lyrical story of two girls, who are kind of...

Friday, the start of the final weekend. And my Friday started with WEDNESDAY, because that's what Cinequest does to me. From Iran, WEDNESDAY is a reference to the execution date for an unseen man. He killed another man, and the grieving family has waited ye...

Jason goes to Cinequest--Day 10
Four more films on Thursday, my final day in Redwood City. I'll be in downtown SJ all weekend. I started off by getting there early enough for a little libation and food courtesy of Margaritas. So I was nice and relaxed for my first film. THE NURSE, from Tu...

Jason goes to Cinequest--Day 7
Because scheduling kept me from making it to Santana Row Sunday night, I started the day early by viewing my press Screener of NEW CHEFS ON THE BLOCK. Not the best way to see a film, but with a home projector and Chromecast it was a bit better than watching...

Jason goes to Cinequest--Day 6
Another full night of partying last Saturday, then a full day of films on Sunday, as my favorite drinking-festival-with-a-movie-problem marches on. First up...was a lot of morning drinking in the VIP lounge. A little breakfast, a little mimosa, a Bloody Mar...

Jason goes to Cinequest--Day 5
Saturday was a pretty intense day, starting with a little free breakfast in the VIP lounge, courtesy of Whole Foods Market . Just one beer with breakfast (I was pacing myself) and then off to the California Theatre. The first show started with the short MAY...

Friday kicks off a big weekend, and the start of my vacation. For the next week I'm not working my regular job, I'm a full-time Cinequester! We started with...drinking! A couple of beers in the festival lounge, then off to the Soiree at Mosaic . More Stella...
