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: Close Range

During my college years, I grew more and more interested in the works of director Isaac Florentine, preferably his collaborations with actor Scott Adkins. The Undisputed and Ninja series are some of the finest examples of modern action I can think of with each series having good stories, characters and superb action. With their newest […]

Movie Review: Krampus

During the Christmas Season many people have their favorite holiday films to watch with their families. They gather around and watch a merry little picture and remember fonder years of youth. Personally I prefer the unorthodox Christmas films, ones that tell Peace on Earth and Good Will toward men to take a hike. Nothing makes […]

For nearly forty years the Rocky franchise has entertained the world with its mostly well crafted stories, engaging characters and exciting boxing.

Movie Reviews: Tales of Halloween

Normally I don’t go out of my way to see a horror anthology. I can’t explain why but typically I don’t enjoy them. However, for the past few weeks I have been excited about Tales of Halloween, a collaborative effort featuring ten segments from ten current horror directors, among them one of my absolute favorites, […]

It isn’t often that a horror/comedy film comes around and not only makes fun of and points out the formulas of horror films, but also has a lot of heart to it. This week’s film “The Final Girls” has that in spades!   The story for The Final Girls is not only very clever and […]

Movie Review: The Scorch Trials

The Young Adult movie genre has been surging rapidly over the past couple of years with each aiming to be the next big franchise. Some become world wide phenomenons while more often then not others crash and burn but usually these films are poor adaptations of their source material. However, that is not the case […]

Movie Review: Transporter Refueled

During the past few years the quality of Luc Besson’s films have been on a swift decline. Once a filmmaker who crafted engaging stories and excellent action scenes now churns out films with bad stories, poorly written characters, rampant misogyny and abysmal cinematography. His work has gotten so bad that I’ve found no reason to see […]

Movie Review: Fantastic Four

Mob mentality. It is a collective way of thinking that has plagued so many films. If a majority of people believe a film is bad or is going to be bad, with nothing to back up those claims, then everyone will decree that film as bad. Such is the long, sad story of Fantastic Four […]

For the past few years Donnie Yen has been influential to my taste in films and style of writing. His masterpiece Ip Man is what truly got me into the martial arts genre and I doing so shaped my writing for martial arts and action films. Unfortunately, Yen’s films typically aren’t as good as Ip […]
