About Us

Film Equals is an online news magazine that specializes in news, reviews, commentary, and more on the latest films and movie industry as a whole.

What is the philosophy behind Film Equals?

We believe in a very simple ideal:

All opinions and tastes are equal.

What does that mean?

We want Film Equals to be a welcoming and safe environment for all movie lovers where you can experience, discuss and share your passion for your favorite movies.

It means that whether you like a horror flick or a romantic comedy, your taste or opinion of that show is as important as anyone else’s.



Americ Ngwije

In addition to his duties as an editor on TV Equals, Americ is also a movie lover. His movie watching experience has to be entertaining, so mostly anything with explosions will do, and having Jason Statham in them is always a plus. Then there are the odd men out aka “Meet Joe Black” and “In the Land of Women,” go figure…

Sandrine Sahakians

While also being an editor on TV Equals, Sandrine has been a film lover for as long as she can remember. From actions films to rom com to indies, Sandie pretty much enjoys every type of films, apart from horror movies. She’s always on the lookout for great films suggestions and is open to try anything… that is except for horror films.

jordan writer Jordan Magrath

Jordan, who currently resides in Seattle, WA, has slowly become a film fanatic over the past couple of years. He attributes his love for film to the smash hit THE DARK KNIGHT which has created an (un)healthy obsession with both Christopher Nolan and the Batman franchise. Although he appreciates all genres of film, his favorite movies are typically psychological thrillers, with an emphasis on non-traditional narratives.

You can find him on Twitter at @jmacle or on his blog Rad(ical) Notions.


LM Magalas L.M. Magalas

Canadian-born L.M. Magalas has a universal love of movies that started when her grandfather had her watch The Searchers at the age of thirteen. Since then she’s made a habit of watching any movie that is not nailed down, although she tends to avoid gory horror movies whenever possible. She is also an animated movie fan and loves anything by Hayao Miyazaki. She finds it difficult to find anyone willing to play Scene It with her. She’s also a writer and yearly NaNoWriMo participant. Her favourite movie is the original Twelve Angry Men.

You can find her on Twitter at @TheRealAtellix.


mark writer Mark Trammell

Mark Trammell is a life-long fan of films and has a pretty whacked-out, all-over-the-place movie collection that would give most sane people pause. He loves horror movies and Disney flicks and isn’t entirely sure there is a difference. He one day hopes to put his money where his mouth is and inflict his own perverse vision on society, entirely so that he can tell people who ask: “If you think you can do better, why don’t you make a movie yourself?” to shut up. He is the resident Entertainment Critic at UAB.

Follow him on Twitter, if you dare, at @rip_mr_gordo and check out his day job at Kaleidoscope.
