HBO hasn't missed a beat when it comes to its post-Game of Thrones programming landscape. Series like Watchmen, His Dark Materials, and The Outsider have received positive responses from critics and viewers alike, with 2020 promising more returning series as well as new projects such as Lovecraft Country, Perry Mason, and The Undoing. Speaking of […]
"The House of Ryan Murphy" continues to widen its sphere of influence towards every corner of the pop culture universe… which we will be the first ones to admit was a pretty broad, dramatic way of saying that Edgar Ramirez (American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace) and Lily Rabe (American Horror Story) are […]

Starting with some Leveson-relevant business.
You thought she was gone didn't you? Well...she certainly isn't back.
Here's my Friday film review from Glide FM. I don't know why I was so excitable this morning, but I was. We have a quick look back at The Vow, then look forward to Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists – though, to be clear, this isn't an embargo-breaking review. No. Scout's honour. [display_podcast] Come […]
After taking a tour of Aardman studios and the set of their new film The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists, this is one film that I'm very much looking forward to. However, it's not all smooth sailing for this venture (last pirate pun I'll make in this article, honest) as the World Health Organisation, […]
As someone who grew up watching Wallace and Gromit shorts, and later their feature films like Chicken Run, you can imagine my excitement when I was asked by my taskmaster Brendon to do a tour of one of Aardman's studios down in Bristol. I was slightly less excited when I was told that as part of the […]
I always get excited when Aardman release footage from their newest project, and this one is particularly exciting because the modelling and creative process for The Pirates!

First up, the as-yet fresh to Bleeding Cool US trailer for Pirates! Band of Misfits, because they're not calling it Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists over there.

But a bit better is the UK trailer which was […]
Finally, a good look at a character from Aardman Animation's next stop motion picture, The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists. Here he is: That's the Pirate Captain, as voiced by Hugh Grant. The picture should apparently be captioned "Sweet Neptune's Briny Pants" – I kid you not. A catchphrase, of course. You can see […]
