Episode 178 - Jon Reviews How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World


Taking a break from the restaurant reviews, Jon’s back at the movie reviews.

Yesterday Jon saw ‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’. When he came home he told me he gave it 10 out of 10, so as usual, he liked it.

Jon’s Oscar pool is done, and Michelle Sullivan won! Congratulations Michelle.

The March break is this coming week, so, I’ll check with Jon to see whats sort of stuff he has planned. Right now I can hear him listening to the Greyhounds’ game on the radio.

Episode 173 - Jon Reviews Little Italy


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 164 - Jon Reviews Deadpool 2


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 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 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 121 - Jon Reviews the Man From UNCLE

Yeah I know there are supposed to be periods after each letter in UNCLE, I just didn't feel like typing them.

So Jon went and saw the Man from UNCLE and really liked it.  It is actually getting pretty good reviews, so his rating (five out of five) is not ridiculous.

He then told us about his various movie ideas.

Oddly, he asked if he could climb on to the roof of the house.  I figure this would be a bad idea.

Episode 74 - Jon Reviews Non Stop

Well it is the March Break, so Jon is home for the week.  The consequence is that this one was recorded while I was waiting for my sausages to cook....  

Anyway, Jon reviews Non Stop in this one.  You know, Taken on a plane...

Episode 70 - Confucius and the Dentist

On our way to the dentist Jon explains his interest in Confucius.

He, of course, also talked about movie ideas and MLP.  All in all a good morning, as his dental appointment went well.
