As many of you know, JP passed away on July 16, 2019. I didn’t give a lot of thought to JPFMovies at the time, beyond putting it on my to do list to circle back to when I was ready. A few days ago I finally returned to the site to check on it and renew the domain, and discovered that the domain had expired. Luckily, the wonderful team at WordPress Help was able to recover the site for me. I plan to keep the content up–this site was a labor of love for JP, writing these reviews was one of his greatest joys, and it would have broken my heart to see it disappear. There will be new reviews, occasionally, from JPF family and friends.
But right now I am beyond thrilled and relieved just to have the site back up.
If you’re someone who knew and loved JP, please take some time to go back and read his reviews. Or have a JPF film fest, watch some of his favorites, and reread the reviews. Add comments if you want. He would have loved that.

Bonnie, I had no idea that JP had passed away. I am so sorry to hear that.
My mother passed away last May, so I have empathy for your grief. You have my most heartfelt condolences.
When, in fear and trembling, I was first finding my way as a blogger on martial arts films, JP was an early friend and I will always be grateful for his encouragement. He, himself, was a fine blogger and I am glad you are leaving this website up, both as a resource to film fans and to remember him.

Oh no, so sorry to hear this. JP was my first blogging friend when I first started my site, so he always had a special place in my heart. All my love and condolences go out to you and the rest of the JPF family. Thanks for keeping the site up.
