Film Review & Trailer: Frozen II

Frances Winston reviews this sequel to the wildly popular Frozen

Directed by: Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee – Starring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad

It’s hard to believe that the original Frozen was released back in 2013 – mainly because the iconic song, Let It Go, is still stuck in my head. And Elsa and Anna costumes are still top of every little girl’s wish list. If you don’t know who or what I’m talking about, then you’re probably not the target audience.

This time around, Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf, embark on a journey to discover the origin of Elsa’s magical powers, and save their kingdom. So it’s basically a road-trip – albeit through an Enchanted Forest. Continue Reading »

Video: Amy Guess – Holy Hell

On Sunday’s music slot at EILE, we feature the latest edgy single from powerful alt-pop artist, Amy Guess, who has just released her great new track, Holy Hell. The dynamic track mingles dark vocals, rocky pulsing instrumentals and with the shout of ‘Holy Hell!’ could well become a classic. We think this is well worth a listen. Enjoy!


If you would like to know more about Amy, we also featured her in our bi-monthly EILE Magazine for July/August, pages18-21.

Amy Guess will be heading out on an Autumn tour in support of the single, with Icon for Hire.
