Howdy. My name is John.

I'm a writer and editor. I've written for Esquire, Food and Wine, and Decider, to name a few. Years ago, I had a late-night call-in show on Sirius XM. I won two James Beard Awards for an essay about Taco Bell. I once created a print humor magazine for a mattress company. LOL.

This is a free newsletter. Reviews, short and simple. Occasional essays. I have enabled subscriptions if you want to fund my lavish lifestyle (my one-eyed, 10-year-old dog Morley likes expensive turkey treats), but I'm not putting any content behind ye olde paywall. That may change in the future! But for now, I'm just here to connect and build a community, and then turn that community into a lucrative cult, and then spend my days sitting on a throne, basking in the praise of my loyal Earth children.

I plan on reviewing what's new on the big screen and streaming.

I will send reviews twice a week, on Sundays and Wednesdays. Please don’t quote me on that. I want this to be fun, and I'd love to hear from you -- what are you watching? What’s your favorite snack? What’s your favorite musical? Is it Les Misérables?

150 Word Reviews is a reader-supported publication. That’s you!

Thoughts on movies, culture, etcetera. Mercifully short.
