Hi there! Welcome to my world.
I am Jon Negroni and I’m a writer of books, cultural theories, and entertainment reviews. I also make YouTube videos and host a podcast called Cinemaholics. When I finished college at 21, I decided to make a blog that could be about anything I want, so here we are.
My latest book is Killerjoy, a fantasy adventure novel that combines everything I love about superheroes and comic books with traditional high fantasy. My first book was The Pixar Theory, based on the viral blog post I wrote here in 2013. Since then, the book and the blog post have been read by hundreds of millions around the world and in dozens of languages.
I started this blog in 2012 as a way for me to write about the things I care about. Naturally, I gravitated toward one of my biggest passions: film and entertainment.
By day, I’m a copywriter based out of the Bay Area (which I call the Internet, California). But by night and very early morning, I review and overanalyze movies on this platform.
To become a film critic, I had to do the typical work (study journalism, take some film school courses, cry in my sleep, etc.) But I’m much more interested in some of the nonconventional ways I can share my love of movies with you. That includes some of the videos I make, along with various editorials like Snarcasm.
I always try to search for the hidden meanings behind the best (and even the worst) films. I get a thrill out of exploring incredible fan theories, tackling the worst articles of the Internet, satirizing celebrities, and more. There’s plenty of nonsense, but hopefully some insight here and there.
When you visit the homepage, you can see a row of “Featured” articles that represent my latest editorials and reviews. Scroll down, and you’ll see a feed of podcast episodes and videos.
You can also take a look at my “Top Posts” on the right sidebar, which measures the day’s most visited articles. This includes classic posts like The Pixar Theory. For anything else, be sure to check out the top navigation to view all of my reviews, editorials, and other things I haven’t deleted yet out of embarrassment.
