Good day to you, my name is Jonathan Gonzalez. For years I've loved movies and have been reviewing them for years, ever since I first saw Roger Ebert on Ebert and Roeper during my freshman year of high school for the first time. I am a graduate of Mercy College with a Bachelor's in Journalism and I have Asperger's Syndrome, something I am truly proud of.

Movie Review: Power Rangers

I’ve been a fan of Power Rangers ever since I was a little kid. It was one of the biggest staples of my childhood and something that had grown into a weekly routine for me.  Every Friday and Saturday I had to watch at least one episode, no exceptions. Even as my 25th birthday draws closer I […]

Movie Review: Kong Skull Island

Ever since The Avengers came on the scene all the big movie companies have been scrambling to create their own shared movie universes and very rarely do they ever take off.  However, in today’s case there is an exception and it began with the abysmal 2014 reboot of Godzilla. Filled to the brim with flat […]

Movie Review: Loving

  The story of Loving is very well made and is one of the most calm and patient dramas I’ve ever seen. The story follows Mildred and Richard Loving throughout their decade-long battle against the state of Virginia to keep their right to remain married. The story does a fine job of following the lives of the […]

As December comes closer to its end, so does the presidency of Barack Obama. Though too kind and trustworthy for his own good, he was still one of finest presidents we ever had.  He aimed to do everything he could to help his country, its citizens – even against the unmovable and cruel GOP and the multitudes who […]

Movie Review: Moana

For the past few years I’ve felt that Disney has mainly been off it’s “A” game, releasing films that didn’t quite reach that gold standard. Wreck It Ralph was a very enjoyable film,  however Frozen, in my opinion was unbearably mediocre and the less said about that white-washed garbage Big Hero 6 the better! But this […]

Movie Review: The Accountant

Throughout film history, Autism has always had a niche from which it has rarely expanded. Films dealing with Autism range from an autistic character getting close to his family or finding true love, but we rarely get a film where an autistic character is a hero who fights bad guys with ease. The closest we ever […]

Movie Review: Magnificent Seven

The western film genre is one that has been dying out over the years. Very few are ever released and the few that are don’t do well at the box office. On top of that it seems only remakes of westerns can leave any kind of impact and as with every single year another well […]

Movie Review: Suicide Squad

For the past three years DC and Warner Bros. have been trying to copy Marvel’s success in the film industry by trying to create a shared movie universe of their own. The problem is they’ve made many missteps along the way from trying to get to the Justice League movie as quickly as possible to having the […]

Movie Review: Nerve

During the summer movie going season when we’re swamped with advertising campaigns for the biggest, newest blockbusters it’s always easy to forget those smaller films that come out, ones that don’t have a lot of attention or advertising when they come out. For the most part these films seem rather unappealing when going up against […]

After a string of successful films and redefining the horror genre not once but twice, James Wan has now decided to take the producer’s seat for a while to help the newest generation of horror directors make a name for themselves. His first protege is David F. Sandberg who begins his directorial career with the […]

Movie Review: The Shallows

Since the release of the strange and over the top Sharknado there has been an influx of bizarre shark films. Ghost sharks, avalanche sharks, three headed sharks, sharks fighting mecha-crocodiles, the insanity goes on. It seems every filmmaker who wants to cash in is trying to make their film as ridiculous as possible so their’s will be […]

Movie Review: The Conjuring 2

Over the past three years, James Wan has quickly become one of my favorite directors. Initially believing him to be a maker of sub par horror films, I had stayed away from anything that had his name on it. However, three years ago I saw The Conjuring and found I had been wrong for so long. The […]

Movie Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

For over thirty years the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have entertained audiences across all platforms of entertainment from comics to cartoons to movies and video games. To this day the heroes in a half shell remain incredibly popular though two years ago there was a large outcry and backlash against the newest installment of the film franchise […]

Movie Review: The Jungle Book

For over seventy years, there have been numerous film adaptations of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, the most famous being the 1967 animated musical made by Disney. After starting a new stint on recreating their classics as big budgeted live action films (starting with the visually and thematically interesting Maleficent), Disney has decided to try their hand […]

Movie Review: Hardcore Henry

Seven months prior a movie premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival that caught my eye. Originally titled Hardcore the film boasted to be the very first to be almost completely shot from a first person perspective from start to finish. I was immediately interested in the film as I really enjoy cinematography from the visual perspective […]
