My name is Jonathan Pires. I guess it is my good fortune that you stumbled across my little website here. For the past few years, I have been obsessed with movies. At first, it was a very shallow love, simply admiring the explosions and special effects of Hollywood blockbusters. Over time though, I began to look at films more critically. It started to take more than Optimus Prime and scantily clad women to peak my interest.
I started to develop opinions about the movies I was watching, and critical ones at that. Every time I finished a movie, I wanted to tell whoever I was with how I felt about it. I began taking film classes and learning how films were made. Friends and family began to look for my opinion of films. This slow progression from mindless movie-watcher to thoughtful cinema critic led me to the place I am now.
My intentions for creating this place of criticism are to thoughtfully (and sometimes sarcastically) let fellow movie-goers know whether or not movies are worth their time. I do not expect every person who reads a review to agree with me. I am simply here to let you know what I think of films in a simple and coherent manner. Whether or not you see a movie is frankly up to you.
With time and money being two things people hate to waste, I thought I may be able to provide a service to help people save them. My hope is that people can spend two minutes here, reading my reviews, to save them two hours of sitting through a dreadful movie, $11.00 poorer.
