    Pump up the Volume 1990

    ★★★½ Watched 24 Jun, 2015

    A late eighties vehicle for Christian Slater - inspired by the likes of Lenny Bruce a shy student becomes a pirate of the radiowaves, playing punk & alternative music as well as acting as an agony uncle for his fellow put-upon students.

Jaws is my favourite movie of all time, this was my favourite experience on a boat ever.
