    Licorice Pizza

    ★★★★

    Movie of the year for me so far. It was so much fun. The writing was so damn tight. The acting and chemistry between leads fantastic.

    The soundtrack was the best I've heard in a film for ages. The film looked great too, with many fantastic shots scattered throughout.

    Laughed-out-loud numerous times. Yelled, "what!" numerous times. Fell in love with the meandering story, lack of plot and various scenes numerous times.

    Scream

    ★★½

    Is there such a thing as too meta? Because Scream comes remarkably close, if not succeeding in being too caught up in acknowledging the past and previous installments.

    These people will pull at your heart strings. Potatoes as a currency is something I had only ever heard of from Stalin-era Russia. I didn't realise this was still very much a way of life in rural areas of Georgia.

    Great little documentary that could've easily been longer, albeit super depressing as it is.

  • The Dirt

    The Dirt

    ★★★★

    I had been waiting to see this film for 12 years - ever since I read The Dirt as a teenager. It doesn't disappoint. In fact, it was way more enjoyable and fun than I thought it would be. It's cringeworthy, cheesy as hell and over-the-top - but then so is 80s rock. The Dirt seems self-aware of this though and doesn't take itself too seriously. It regularly breaks that fourth wall to hilarious effect.

    It's basically a comedy with…
