That Film Guy is supported by writers of great quality and depth. Below are a list of people who generously provide reviews and articles to the site and as you can see, they’re a professional bunch.
Dave Rogers is That Art House Guy, the foreign language and art house expert here at That Film Guy. He has been a huge fan and supporter of foreign films here in the UK and has years of experiencing watching and writing about them. In fact he’s so into art house cinema that when he speaks there are subtitles.
Andrew Last is That Film Guy’s resident documentary film expert. Boasting a vast collection of documentaries and having seen every one nominated for an Oscar in the last decade, he brings his own unique brand of criticism to the fore. He also claims to be the greatest poker player in the film reviewing fraternity.
The dark art of making terrible films is one of the most subtle and widely misunderstood areas of human endeavour. That Film Guy boasts two connoisseurs of crap movies, those that make it as far as the big screen are rarely true examples of lunatic film-making. Their goal is to find the worst examples of film-making.
That Film Guy’s resident film student is another alumni from the wonderful University of Exeter.
James Haves is ‘That Film Brat,’ a 16 year old lover of everything film. He has been writing reviews for around 2 years. He decided he loved film after he saw Mission Impossible 3 (of all movies), and pranced around the house for a week afterwards wearing shades and waving a toy gun in the air. He also runs Film Node.
That Film Punk is the alias of Eddy Baker, a London-based publisher, and singer/guitarist for unsigned punk-rock act Move & Fire. Eddy also writes a blog about his various antics, and co-runs the daft-as-bees Twitter feed @MorrisseyFacts. In his remaining free time he likes to draw pictures of dinosaurs in MS Paint.
Star Wars entered Emlyn Roberts-Harry’s life when he was six, and he has been an avid watcher of films ever since. He studies classics at university. A true believer that there is as much to be learned from bad films as there is from good ones, he has an odd fascination with terrible fantasy films like Highlander II, but generally prefers to watch things that don’t make him hate mankind.
Ever since he was forced to watch Blade Runner as a 9 year old, Oli has a bit of film snob. Given that he now teaches modules on media and films he always tries to find the hidden meanings, metaphors and messages of films, hence the name That Film Doctor. Films that show cities in interesting and different ways really float his boat, and if that is coupled with a science fiction theme, then watch out, he could go on for hours.

Paul has an unapologetic and enduring love of terrible films. If a film has bigfoot, a giant crocodile, aliens or especially werewolves, Paul is immediately interested (if more than one of these elements are present, he might get a little giddy). Among his friends, Paul’s opinion on films is generally (and often wisely) disregarded.
That Film Journo is Darryl Webber. By day, he’s the features editor for a regional newspaper group; by night (and whenever else he can fit it in) he spends his time watching films, thinking about films and writing about films.
A fan of anything that gets you shoved into your locker at school, Alexander “The Filmologist” Barahona is one half of That Geek Pit. He provides a series of essays on classic-to-modern science fiction and fantasy films, looking in detail at their themes, meanings and overall impact of these genres.
Sadiki and wife Mariesha are the newest members of the That Film Guy family. Primarily with a background in family entertainment they have recently seen their remit expand to grown-up films too. A former male model Sadiki was once seen talking to a packet of sweets before eating them all in one go. Mariesha was unimpressed.
Jo has been a film enthusiast ever since she saw The Little Mermaid at the age of 3 and for a year afterwards refused to walk, instead opting to wriggle along the floor like Ariel. Jo has a degree in English literature and believes that over the years her love of film has helped keep her sanity, what little left of it there is.
Jordanna has lived and breathed film since she could sit still and watch. Her free time is spent watching, talking and thinking about them much to her friends exasperation. With a love for horrors, she sees every film as there to be devoured. She runs her own blog at ‘All in the Name of Film‘ and kindly contributes her work to That Film Guy.
