    I've Seen This Movie Before.
    The Scream films have always bordered the lines of horror and comedy but as they blow the dust of this franchise, the filmmakers turn up the horror making for the first truly frightening installment.
    This time Ghostface does not mess around and although they have their signature clumsiness, this is the first film where they truly feel like a threat with some of the most brutal and shocking kills of the series.
    Compared to Scream…

    I'm Not Going to Forget You.
    Paul Thomas Anderson returns to save cinema with his take on coming of age in Licorice Pizza.
    I have fallen in love with PTA's work this year, filling in my gaps in his filmography so finishing the year by seeing this new release on 70mm was really special.
    Like Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, it lacks in traditional narrative, leaving the audience to get comfy and hang out with the characters. The themes…

    Scream 4

    ★★★

    Less Of A Shrequel And More Of A Screamake.
    After letting the franchise rest for a decade, Wes Craven brought back Ghostface for what ended up being his final directorial effort.
    Turning its attention to horror reboots/remakes/sequels for the modern age, Scream 4 feels more alive than any of the previous sequels but doesn't tread enough new ground to feel memorable.
    Moving quickly from the terrifying to the shocking to the confusing, our seemingly immortal characters continuously survive the villain's convoluted plan which takes the sting out of the tail of what would have been a solid return to the franchise.

    All I Know About Trilogies Is That In The Third One, All Bets Are Off.
    As the Scream sequels go on, the hairstyles get more and more…intriguing.
    If the charm was drying up in Scream 2 it doesn't leave much left for this passionless sequel. This commentary on Hollywood's greed to glamorise tragedy brings our characters together and gives Sydney time to reflect on her horrors when the film finally remembers that she exists.
    It's disheartening to see a franchise so full of life gradually lose its shine becoming the thing it parodied for so long.

    Soul

    ★★★★★

    Your Life is About to Start.
    Pixar has tackled our emotions, our childhoods, and even the monsters under our bed, so it makes sense that their next logical step would be to discuss the meaning of life.
    Soul is the story of Joe, who after losing his passion gets the chance to evaluate his life when he is transported out of his body to the great beyond. But more importantly, Soul is a clear and obvious reminder of why Pixar…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★½

    You're Struggling to Have Everything You Want.
    Time will tell whether I am running high off adrenaline but regardless No Way Home is an ambitious, exhilarating and guaranteed audience pleaser that takes bold risks that pay off in a huge way.
    Tom Holland gives his most emotion-filled performance to date, stepping up as the hero he was always meant to be and giving the suggestion of 'great responsibility' that every iteration of the hero holds so dear a try.
