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: The Hitman’s Bodyguard

The summer movie season has finally come to a close. It’s always an unfortunate thing to think about. All the big films meant to represent and be remembered for this season, have come and gone and now it’s time to start thinking about autumn. But as always the summer has one final trick up its […]

Movie Review: Detroit

This past July marked the fiftieth anniversary of the 1967 Detroit Riots, one of the worst the country had ever seen, and in that time nothing has changed in this country. Other powder kegs had been set off around the country, sparking more civil unrest and the police are still a violent brute squad who […]

Movie Review: Wonder Woman

When it comes to film and television, comic book properties have for the most part, been a man’s game.  Even in these so called “progressive times”,  male superheroes take the center stage. But this year things may hopefully change with Wonder Woman the first comic based film to feature a female superhero in twelve years. Will this movie start […]

Five years ago, director Ridley Scott returned to the Alien franchise with Prometheus,  his attempt at giving a back story to the titular creature. The movie received mixed reactions from audiences with many praising the story and sets, while others criticized the characters and felt the film to be unnecessary.

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 […]
