Without them, there is no BRWC. You can contact them for any film discussion, editorial content and cake recipes.
Alton loves film. He is founder and Editor In Chief of BRWC. Some of the films he loves are Rear Window, Superman 2, The Man With The Two Brains, Clockwise, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Trading Places, Stir Crazy and Punch-Drunk Love. @alrightBABES
Rosalynn Try-Hane is as picky about what she watches as what she eats. She watches movies alone and dines solo too (trend perhaps?!). As a self confessed scaredy cat she doesn’t watch horror films. @liquidmarmalade
Films, games, Godzilla and Scott Pilgrim; these are the things that Alex loves. As he tries to make use of the fact he’s always staring at a screen or a book, you’ll hopefully be treated to some good reviews along the way (though he doesn’t promise anything). @colezilla53
Louise McLeod Tabouis
An Australian who has spent most of her adult life in Paris, Louise is a sometime photographer, documentary-maker, writer, researcher, day-dreamer and interviewer, who prefers to start the day at the local cinema’s 9am session. @ParisienneOz
Regular type person by day, film vigilante by night. Spent years as a 35mm projectionist (he got taller) and now he gets to watch and wax lyrical about all manner of motion pictures. Daryl has got a soft spot for naff Horror and he’d consider Anime to be his Kryptonite. Co-host of Sudden Double Deep: The Triple Bill Title Podcast, you’ll often find him lurking at The Prince Charles Cinema. @HotDonkeyBear
Ben started out as a Technology blogger before branching out into writing about Film & TV. An obsessive fan of indie film & dark comedies you will probably find him waxing lyrical about the movies of Kevin Smith, The Coen Brothers, Robert Rodriguez or Quentin Tarantino. He also loves to discover cult, low-budget indie gems. @IndieMacUser
One of his earliest memories was watching Jurassic Park for the first time at the age of two. It blew him away and from then on was addicted to films. Now all grown up Callum spends most free days with friends (mostly watching films, to be honest), caring for his dog, writing, more writing and watching films.
Esme Betamax is a writer and illustrator. Often found in the Cube Microplex. Her favourite films include: I ♡ Huckabees, Where the Buffalo Roam, Harold & Maude and Being John Malkovich. @betamaxer

His debut feature film, the micro-budget thriller Follow the Crows, won Best Independent Film at the Global Film Festival Awards, while his stage-play, The Door, won the People’s Choice Award at the 2017 Swinge Festival. He enjoys watching and writing about movies. @AlexSecker
A Digital Marketing Consultant by trade with a passion for cinema that never goes out. Is known to be as equally obsessed with the latest big budget blockbuster as he is with the new indie low-fi gem. @BenjyBox
Romy is a freelance production assistant from London who loves all kinds of film. She also loves reading and writing reviews, picking apart all aspects of what makes a movie great! She can’t resist a great thriller or crime film like Zodiac, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, Rear Window and No Country for Old Men. She’s also a sucker for a good comedy, and loves anything featuring Will Farrell or Steve Carrell! @romysomerset
Gabriella claims to know nothing about film. She may have studied it at Uni and watched an indecent amount of comedies, but she’ll still approach each review like it’s her first one, for two reasons: her memory is embarrassingly appalling. @gabryhella
Dan will watch just about any film he can get his hands on. His ultimate goal is to see all of the films, but for now he’s happy obsessing over anything with a brilliant script and/or well executed violence. Some of his favourite directors include Quentin Tarantino, Michael Haneke, Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese.
Grace was born and raised just outside of Oxford in a small town called Woodstock by her single-mother. She spent much of her childhood entertaining herself by singing, playing music and acting out plays and film scenes in her loft and garage. She has had reviews and articles published at the Oxford Mail, Picturehouse Spotlight and Bath Life Magazine and is a host on film podcast Strangers In A Cinema. @grizzlefizzle89
Jack first started reviewing films when he was four years old and went on to his mum about how the ending of Snow White was shit. He is now very pleased to be able to share his knowledge of film.
Ever since the age of nine, film and the art of filmmaking has been Caillou’s number one passion. It all started when his parents took him to see Finding Nemo. Afterwards, Caillou had become heavily intrigued by film and some of his favourites include Coraline, The Empire Strikes Back and Hereditary. @CaillouPettis
Lauren is an Australian who recently made the move to London, and she’s interested in absolutely everything! She has a Business (Marketing)/Arts (Film & TV, Drama) degree, Lauren likes reading, writing and learning. @lauren_brooke94
Dan is a freelance film critic who hopes to encourage people to venture outside of their comfort zone and try out different movies. He is a proud supporter of independent cinema, but will give pretty much anything a try (although he has genuine concerns over modern American comedies and horrors). @DanBarnesFilm
Allie is an actor, filmmaker, screenwriter, and comedian from Chicago, Illinois. Her first feature “Kathryn Upside Down” was released in 2019 by Random Media and 1091 Media. She idolises John Hughes, but when she’s not thinking about movies she’s putting together outfits and reading up on the latest fashion trends, her favourite designer is Marc Jacobs. @AllieLoukas
Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it. @Filmabilityblog
Mark is an Australian who likes movies, a lot. Now he studies and writes about them. Will watch anything Scorsese has ever touched. @MarkGoodyear9
Megan’s taste in films are interesting: her favourite films are ‘Space Jam’, Studio Ghibli’s ‘The Cat Returns’, as well as horror films ‘Saw’, ‘Drag Me To Hell’ and ‘Ju-On: The Grudge’. When she’s not watching films, she’ll be spending precious hours playing ‘Crash Bandicoot’. @Megan_Septiceye
Fergus is a film and lit grad based in and from Edinburgh. He is motivated by a desire to explore the world’s cultures as much as possible while he’s on said world. Catch him fawning over the latest Criterion releases and playing his guitar. @loslobosfanclub
