About

John Gilpatrick has been writing about film since 2009. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from Lehigh University and works for Rodale, Inc. as a web producer and reporter for MensHealth.com.

His love of film started at an early age watching films with his parents back in Scranton, PA. In high school, he freaked his friends out with his movie knowledge, and in college, he presided over the small and short-lived (but dedicated!) Lehigh Film Society. He also contributed reviews and filmmaker interviews to the college newspaper, The Brown and White.

John Likes Movies started as a simple Blogger install, but with the help of Katelyn Hanna-Wortley, John Likes Movies 2.0 launched in December 2012.

John resides in Emmaus, PA, and is a member of the Online Film Critics Society. He’ll watch and write about almost anything, but he tends to favor dramas, documentaries, and foreign/independent cinema. His favorite filmmakers include Kubrick, Hitchcock, Tarantino, Leigh, and Malick.
