Philip Etemesi is an author, screenwriter, and film critic. As a child, he was notorious for watching mature movies like Goodfellas and North By Northwest instead of Home Alone and Kindergarten Cop. His ex-girlfriend once asked him to choose between her and the TV. You can bet what he chose. A wildlife lover, Philip once saved for months to buy an orphaned giraffe named Refu. He then let her stay with her own kind at the sanctuary, but he always visits every weekend and sends the animal version of child support.
Phil has been at MovieWeb since mid-2023. His task has been to write lists about all kinds of movies and TV shows. He has previously served as a Senior Writer for ScreenRant and CBR.
Phil's knowledge of Silent Era films is just as good as his knowledge of modern dramas and sitcoms. He has a fondness for history-related topics, but no current proceedings escape his attention either.
