Lucas’ life changed and was molded for the world of cinema and the voice of criticism the moment the end credits rolled on Christopher Nolan’s breakout 2000 film Memento. Since then, Lucas has been a successful Honours graduate from York University in the field of Film Criticism and Theory and has written for a wide range of online and print publications. While juggling two independent businesses, Lucas spends his free time watching movies, writing about movies, and talking about movies. Never deterring from his lifelong goal, Lucas founded Night Film Reviews in 2013 and hopes to make the site a successful source of reliable film criticism, all-the-while dipping his toes in the world of cinema as a screenwriter, assistant director and undeniable cinephile.

Not to be confused with Sir Charles Bine Renshaw, the 1st Scottish Baronet, Charles Renshaw holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto as well as an Ontario College Graduate Certificate in Radio Broadcasting from Humber College in Toronto. Charles’ love for film is rooted in his use of film as an escape. “I’ll never be a cop, rob a bank or fight with someone on the roof of a train,” he says, “film allows me to do all those things while sitting on the couch in my underwear.” He hopes that films will continue to fuel the imaginations of youth today so they can provide quality entertainment tomorrow. In addition to watching movies in his underwear, his favourite pastime is also editing in his underwear, while in the comfort of his own home of course.
