    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

    ★★★★½

    There needs to be more movies that are like this and fewer that are not.

    ★★★★½

    If Cooke and/or Taylor-Joy get to their thirties without having won at least an Oscar each I will metaphorically get very stabby on the Academy's ass.

    Absolutely fantastic. We'll all miss you Anton.

    About Time

    ★★★½

    Richard Curtis you manipulative bastard. It's the same film he's made for the last few decades but throwing in some cheeky (and hilariously "wrong") time travel, Domhnall Gleeson doing a two hour Hugh Grant impression, a lot of Nick Cave and ten minutes of Margot Robbie to make me automatically unable to hate it. A super easy watch if you just let it entertain you and don't think about the plot holes.

    Ingrid Goes West

    ★★★★

    A brilliant satire of the appalling influencer generation. It's rare that a protagonist can be so flawed/borderline sinister and yet so worthy of support, but Aubrey Plaza - in the role she was born to play even if it is very April Ludgate - manages it comfortably. Really, really good.

    A Quiet Place, if it was written by Michael instead of Jim.
