We meet The Muppets‘ Gonzo, Zoe & the Swedish Chef: Dave Goelz, Fran Brill and Bill Barretta

Review: With the PLAYBASE, Sonos prove that by staying a step behind, you can end up two steps in front

Sonos have never seen themselves as leaders in “doing things first”, rather, as the kings of “doing things right”.

One of the Summer’s biggest hits has been the Disney animated film Moana – which has its home entertainment release this week.

We talk about what it took to bring the character to life, the Polynesian mythology behind the film, what it means that Disney has taken on this story, and we find out if there are any Hunt of the Wilderpeople spin-offs in the works....

We sat down with Director Mark Webber and his family to talk about Flesh and Blood at SXSW

Director and Actor Mark Webber premiered his new film Flesh and Blood at SXSW earlier this month; a docu-style film which stars his own family and blurs the line between fact and fiction. I sat down with Mark, his mother Cheri Honkola, brother Guillermo Santos, and actress Madeline Brewer (Orange Is the New Black) to talk about the film, which we reviewed HERE.... Continue Reading

Having already brought us one of the best black comedies of all time with In Bruges, and a memorable follow-up with Seven Psychopaths, it comes as little surprise that director Martin McDonagh has us excited about his new film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
