Welcome to The Watchers Film Show Blog!

Hi there and welcome to The Watcher's Film Show Blog!

The Watchers are two movie buffs, old school friends, who share a passion for film in all its forms. From blockbusters to arthouse, we'll watch it and give our honest opinions on it. Big thanks to John Rolls at for giving us the opportunity to share our opinions.

So who are The Watchers?

Rhys Jones

I'm a thirtysomething who's mad on movies - always have been and always will be! I blame my mother - it's all her fault, from watching Star Wars, Star Trek and hours of Doctor Who, I- of course- became a movie geek! Not only is my passion in my spare time - I studied film and television at university and now work for a Welsh television company within their post production department. So you could say I'm the technical minded, blockbuster movie event loving Watcher!

Terrance Edwards

Thirtysomething film fan with a seriously eclectic taste in films. An unashamed movie geek and card-carrying Whovian, I was born in Pembrokeshire, attended Cardiff University and Trinity College Carmarthen to become a double graduate in English literature and Creative Writing. I currently work for Cardiff Council in a challenging but fun role and use a night at the cinema as the perfect way to unwind. I'll watch pretty much anything from gross-out comedy to cerebral thriller- but the cardinal sin a movie can commit is to bore me...

So that's who we are; now let us show you what we do!
