    “Quitting is not going to make you stronger, living will. So just hang on and hang in there.”

    School was hell for me, absolute hell. It was hard enough being an autistic kid in an almost entirely unsympathetic environment, but when you combine that with constant and severe bullying, very few friends and constant mental torment, well, it’s certainly not a fun time. Before I had even turned 14, I was “removed” from the school because I was “too difficult”…

    “It's what you do in life that's important, not how much time you have or what you'd wish you'd done.”

    David Bowie has been in my life longer than I can remember. Him and the art that he created have helped me get through a lot. When I’m sad and I don’t want to feel sad, Ziggy or Let’s Dance hits the turntable. When I’m sad and I want to continue on being sad, on goes Blackstar. His music, it’s…

    “You sick f**ks! You've seen one too many movies.”

    Scream turned twenty-five last year. And whilst seemingly everywhere else screened it, my local cinema and the chain it belongs to didn’t. But tonight, as it’s the run up to spooky season, and, sure, because it’s technically the twenty-fifth anniversary in the UK this year and not last year, my local cinema has decided to do a single screening of Scream. And that screening was tonight, and I was fortunate enough…

    “No one gets everything they want in life. No one does. But we all get enough to feel that our lives are important.”

    If I could sum up this documentary in a few words, I’d go with adorable and heartwarming. What a lovely film. I kind of wish this film was a tiny bit longer but at the same time, it’s pretty damn good already as it is.

    To put it simply, it is just a wonderful, short documentary about a…

    “Have you ever been tempted?” 

    It’s been twenty-five years since Quentin Tarantino’s third film hit the big screen. A total neck-break turn from his two previous efforts, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, the audiences back then, a lot of the time, didn’t respond positively to it, they came to know and expect a certain kind of movie from Tarantino. Violent, non-linear, bloody tales of crime, chaos and brutality, with a few dashes of black comedy thrown in for good measure.…
