220px-Little_Italy_film.jpg

Jon went to see another movie.

It is a movie I didn't even know existed.  He may be beginning to scrape the bottom of the barrel. Then again, maybe it's good.

Anyway, the movie is 'Little Italy' which I've not heard of, a romcom sorta deal.

Let's find out what the boy thinks.

Oh it turns out to be a Canadian movie, who knew?

 

Episode 172 - Jon Reviews Alpha

220px-Alpha_(film).jpg

Boy, Jon has been busy.

Thats two reviews this week.

This instalment is his review of Alpha.  I had not heard of this movie, and after having read the synopsis on wikipedia, I kinda want to see it.

I am interested in Jonno's thoughts though.

Jon really liked this one.  He says it would be a good family movie, though, there is some violence.

Enjoy.

 

 

Episode 171 - Jon Reviews Crazy Rich Asians

Unknown-1.jpeg

We're back from our camping trip, and now Jon is back to the movies.

Today it's 'Crazy Rich Asians'.  It is getting great reviews, so I imagine Jon will like it.

(You can probably tell from the tense in that sentence that I'm writing this before he goes)

Ooh he really liked it, says this one should get Oscar consideration.

We also talked a bit about our recent coming trip..

Episode 170 - Jon Reviews Hotel Transylvania 3

Hotel-Transylvania-3-poster-600x845.png

It's a busy week for Jon, a busy week of movie going and podcasting.

Today he saw Hotel Transylvania 3.  

It seems to have quite a cast, including Adam Sandler, and other SNL alums.

Jon really liked it, and gave it 10 out of 10, as is his custom.  His friend Daniel gave it 7.

Jon burps in this episode, right in your ears, plus, he rubs his razor tumble on the mic.  Ahh the joys of living with Jon.

Jon says the movie would be good as family entertainment, and that it is not boring like, say, the Emoji Movie....

 

 

Episode 169 - Jon Reviews Christopher Robin

Unknown.jpeg

So, Jonno just got back from a movie.  Christopher Robin.  Here are his thoughts, in convenient podcast form.

I've neglected to ask him for his ratings lately, so I won't forget this time.

So, it turns out that Jon liked it a lot.  Both he and his friend Daniel give it 10/10.

Of course Jon talked about the various previews he say, and told us more about his movie ideas.

 

 

 

Episode 167 - Jon Reviews Ant Man and the Wasp

Unknown.jpeg

While I was away at MMPR (The Marshall McLuhan Podcaster Roundtables) Jon went to the movies.  Another trip with his friend Daniel.  This time he saw another super hero movie, Ant Man and the Wasp.

I'm typing this before we record, but, my guess is that he really liked it.

I bet we also talk about the movie trailers.

I wonder what Jon will give it out of 5?

Episode 166 - Jon Reviews The Incredibles 2

Unknown-5.jpeg

So, Jon saw another film with his buddy Daniel.

Turns out that there's a pretty cool soundtrack as well.

Jon really liked it, giving it his standard rating. 

Jon's class is having another BBQ at his teacher's house.  Jon's teacher is a saint of some sort I imagine.

We both hope you like this instalment.

 

 

Episode 165 - Jon Reviews Avengers Infinity War

portrait_incredible.jpg

I didn't get a rating from Jon on the podcast, but he gives it 9 out of 10.

Anyway, yeah Jon saw Infinity War and liked it as you can see.

Oh look there are spoilers, deal with it.

He's also been working on his ideas over at his blog.

His teacher had a party for the whole class last week, a BBQ for all the kids, pretty nice of her.

 

Episode 164 - Jon Reviews Deadpool 2

242900R1.jpg

So, Jon went to see Deadpool 2.  Here's his review.  Remember, Jonathan Files reviews are full of spoilers.

Jon also told me about the previews he saw, and there were five of them.  He thinks the new Mission Impossible movie looks good.

Oh he liked Deadpool 2.

He's been putting his movie ideas on his new blog.

Plus, I bought Jon a new bike, and he likes it a lot, though he has fallen once.  Damned city still hasn't cleaned up all of the sand they put out in the winter.

 

Episode 163 - Jon Reviews Peter Rabbit

Peter-rabbit-teaser.jpg

This March Break has been great for Jon's podcasting career.

Today he went to see Peter Rabbit.  I had no idea it was some sort of irreverent comedy. Having watched the trailer I think it actually might be funny.  I'll wait for Netflix though...

Jon seems to have liked it which is a good thing.

The movie had a song in it that Jon has been playing for at least a year.  Turns out when you listen to the whole song, and not just one bit of it, it is not that bad a song.

Jon has changed over to a rating scale out of 10 with surprising results.

We got vaguely serious for a second, Jon prefers 'person with autism' to 'autistic'.  Cool.

 

 

Episode 162 - Jon Reviews Black Panther

Unknown.jpeg

It is March Break week.

Jon went with his friend Daniel to see Black Panther.  Of course, as usual, Jon loved the movie.  I've heard so many great things about the movie, both for it's oh, cultural impact let's say, and because it is supposed to be so good.  I honestly am not really into super heroes, but Jon is.  

He gave it what he gives movies.

Jon also came to one of my classes today and acted goofy, which was fine.

Episode 161 - Jon Reviews Game Night

Game_Night_(film).png

So we're in Sudbury as Isabelle and some students and faculty from the French department at the university are here for a play.  Jon and I came along.

We're at the Radisson and it is attached to a (somewhat lame) mall.

Well it does have a theatre, so while Isabelle is at the Francoplay, Jon and I went to see Game Night.  As with all Jonathan Files reviews, this thing is full of spoilers.

It was a lot of fun.  It was funny, had some pretty good action and, well, you know what Jonno gave it out of five...

Episode 160 - Jon Reviews Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

Unknown.jpeg

So, it is the holiday season and Jon has taken advantage of that today by going to a movie.  The movie?  Well you probably know from the title here, is the remake or reboot of Jumanji.  Jon says he saw the original, and I don't doubt it.  

Jon really liked it, heck, action / comedy, he's in the target demo.

Of course you know what he gave it.

Jon also talked a bit about Christmas, and stuff he got and what he's been up to.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Jon and Me.

Episode 157 - Jon Reviews Dunkirk

Wow, we haven't put any out in so long and now two in the span of a week.

Both Jon and I saw the previews for Dunkirk last year and we looked at each other and said 'let's see that when it comes out'.  So, we did.

It was, frankly, a great movie.  We both liked it a lot.  I didn't record our scores but we would both give this one five out of five. 

Jon's also been working at the digital creator space in the public library, making animation, which is cool.

Episode 154 - Jon Reviews Rogue One

Jon and I haven't seen a movie in quite a while, and, frankly, there's a new Star Wars movie out, so, off we went!

It was either Rogue One or Assassin's Creed, which Jon informs me is supposed to be terrible.

This is a Jonathan Files review, it will be full of spoilers, so just please keep that in mind.

Here's a spoiler, there are space ships and what have you.

Enjoy, and Happy New Year from Jon and me.

Episode 147 - Jon Reviews Sully

 You can't go wrong with Tom Hanks and plane crashes

You can't go wrong with Tom Hanks and plane crashes

Hi everyone.

It has been quite a long time since Jon and have done one of these.  Things have been very busy for the both of us, Jon has started his second year of high school, and I'm back to teaching from my sabbatical.

Anyway, we're back with a review of 'Sully' which we just saw.  IT'S A PLANE CRASH MOVIE OF COURSE HE LOVED IT.  I was quite enamoured of it as well, though I don't think they treated the NTSB very fairly in the movie.

They have these reserved seats at the theatre, Jon and I didn't get them as it didn't seem necessary.

Hopefully we'll do a few more of these in the near future.

Episode 145 - Jon Reviews Star Trek Beyond

As with all Jonathan Files movie reviews, this is rife with spoilers.  So, SPOILER ALERT.

Yup, after having no episodes all summer, Jon's done two in two days.

So we just saw Star Trek Beyond.

Jon loved it.

I loved it.

Isabelle loved it.

It was really good!

So you know, we had to record a little something.  Anyway, enjoy.

Episode 143 - Jon Reviews Neighbors 2

Well as we all know Jon loves movies.

We also all know Jon gives all of them 5 out of 5, well, except for back when he gave them 3 out of 5, and he did give Gnomeo and Juliet 1 out of 5.  OK, maybe he just likes ALMOST everything.

Anyway, Jon and his pal JC went and saw Neighbours 2 yesterday.  Of course the world needs a Jonathan Files review.

I'm guessing five out of five on this one, hell, it is a Seth Rogen vehicle.....

We recorded this one on the way home, as I met him at his school bus stop.

Jon also lists the probable causes of the recent Egypt Air crash.

Enjoy.

Episode 142 - Jon Reviews Money Monster

Today Jon and I went to see Money Monster, the George Clooney/Julia Roberts vehicle.  It looks interesting (I'm writing this before we go) and has gotten fair to middling reviews, with a 55 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Here's a guess, Jon will love it, and I will think it was ok.

Hopefully I can get Jon to talk a bit about the movie, the cast and such as well as his recent interest in dubstep and electronic music, which, while I find odd, I think it is a good thing.

We're dedicating this one to our buddy JC.

Enjoy.

Episode 140 - Jon Reviews Batman v Superman

Jon went to see Batman v Superman today.  This is really aimed right at his demographic when you think about it, superheroes, explosions etc.

He really enjoyed it and he gave it his typical rating.

We did this one not on my phone but 'in the studio'.  Partially because I like typing 'in the studio' and partially because we don't have long walks to school any more.  We might once the weather warms up.

We hope you like this one as much as we liked doing it.
