Win 1 of 10 double passes to Cuban Fury


Beneath Bruce Garrett's shabby, overweight exterior, the passionate beating heart of a salsa king lays dormant. Only one woman can reignite his Latin fire. Spotlight hits, sweat drips, heels click - Nick Frost IS Cuban Fury.

1987: A 13-year-old natural born dancer with fire in his heels and snakes in his hips is working himself up to explode all over the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path.

So it is that 22 years later, an adult Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) finds himself out-of-shape and unloved - trapped in a downward spiral of self-pity, repression and Nando's takeouts. Only Julia (Rashida Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, gives him reason to live. But she's out of his league, so he imagines, with her perfect smile and perfect life. Unknown to Bruce however, Julia has issues all of her own. Luckily for him, she also has a secret passion...

Then there's Drew (Chris O'Dowd), his alpha male colleague and horny king-monkey of the office. With Drew making no secret of his desire to get physical with Julia, Bruce is forced into action. And thus, Bruce is once again brought face-to-face with the darkest and most powerful of his inner demons. Somehow, someway, and with a lot of handholding from loyal sister Sam (Olivia Colman) Bruce must learn how to unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life... and he's going to do it all On The Dance Floor.

Hits cinemas 20 March. Rated: M. Watch the trailer.

Thanks to STUDIOCANAL, we have 10 double passes each worth $36 up for grabs. Enter here!

Mazda Launches the All-New Mazda2

There was no place you'd rather be in Melbourne on Tuesday night when Mazda celebrated the launch of its All-New Mazda2 with an event fit for the who's who of celeb-u-types.

The star-studded guest list included the likes of gorgeous Carissa Walford, our mate the divine Dan OConner, Rob Mills and Lauren Phillips who MC'd the event.

Entertainment included the winner of this years The Voice Anja Nissen (sorry about that last name, Mazda) who drove home her new debut single "I'm so Excited" to the crowd hoping they would catch on.

Solidly delivering the auto meets fashion association was Myer who showcased styles from Ellery, White Suede, Arthur Galan and Aurelio Costarella delivered via installations that combined cars with white jackets and scary mannequins dressed up as art that could have been borrowed from said department store.

2014 KIA Optima Platinum

The 2014 Kia Optima Platinum is sophisticated, stylish and sporty.

Style & Drive

The five-seater Kia Optima is available in three different models – the Si ($30,990), the SLi ($35,990), and the Platinum ($40,490). We slid behind the wheel of the top-of-the-line Platinum and enjoyed the ride so much that it was very sad to say goodbye at the end of the week.

The 2014 model is $1,200 more than the previous model, however this price rise is offset by a number of up grades both internal and external, with more high-tech amenities, improved safety features, and a refined, aerodynamic exterior.

The 2.4L GDI petrol engine is powerful and fuel-efficient. Handling is tight which makes the sedan a lot of fun to drive, and new Blind Spot monitors on the Platinum model make safe driving even easier. Front and rear parking sensors and a reverse parking camera render parking a breeze. Design tweaks on the exterior include improvements to the front and rear fascia and grille, and a sweeping boot lid with an aerodynamic lip.

2014 Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed

The Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed is no SUV pretender. It’s a luxuriously-appointed seven seat beast with all the cool features you’d expect including rear seat DVD players to distract the kids, satellite navigation, a five-star safety rating and the ability to ford a river and tow a boat. Are we having fun yet?

Style & Drive

The Mitsubishi Pajero comes in four different spec levels – GLX, GLX-R, VLX, and Exceed – and in five and seven seat models. We were lucky enough to take the top-of-the-line seven-seater Exceed for a spin.

The interior design befits the luxury car, with wood print accents on the steering wheel, doors and dash, a large touch screen infotainment centre, and leather-trim seats. The middle row of seats are spoiled with two nine-inch DVD entertainment systems with wireless headphones that are awesome for keeping the kiddies quiet on long road trips.

2014 Honda Odyssey VTI-L

If you’re going to invest in a people mover, the seven-seat Honda Odyssey VTi-L is a winner in anyone’s book. It’s long, wide, and fuel efficient. It’s comfortable and practical. 

Style & Drive

With two small kids, we’re in the market for a family car. Though we’re not quite ready for a people mover ourselves, we can definitely see the appeal of the Honda Odyssey for families of three or more kids. The Odyssey is available as an eight-seat VTi or a seven-seat VTi-L. We climbed aboard the VTi-L and felt like we were boarding an airplane. There was so much space!

The seven-seater VTi-L is cavernous. The roof is high and the floor is low for optimal space and head room. The one-touch power sliding doors on both sides can be operated via the dashboard and key fob. The 2:2:3 design of the VTI-L seats is great, though the kids will be fighting for the luxurious two. Captain’s Chairs in the middle row. A practical highlight is the fact that the middle row rolls back and forth even with car seats installed, as the seatbelts are attached to the seats and not the walls, and both seats are independent so you can have one seat back and one seat forward if you wish.

Madonna (and her squoobs) Make a Comeback


The Queen of reinvention strikes again

The Queen of reinvention strikes again

advertisement ^

Madonna had us worried for a while there. The world went Gaga and our favourite Material Girl seemed to slink back into the shadows. Nobody had heard ‘boo’ from her and now suddenly, she’s everywhere! She’s winning a Golden Globe (but not winning any popularity contests for those unseemly squoobs), she’s directed an acclaimed film, ‘W.E.’ and now she’s adding another album to her discography of dance hits.

MDMA (a naughty reference to the party drug of dirty dance floors) is due for release on March 26th and is sure to push boundaries even Gaga hasn’t thought of. And that's really saying something. The first single, ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’ will hit airwaves February 4th and features pop protégé Nicki Minaj (think Madonna meets a bubble gum machine) and M.I.A. It’s catchy (if not a bit too catchy) and certainly proves why Madge is still the undisputable Queen of Pop.

The music video for ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’ airs live on American Idol on February 3 and is sure to go viral sooner. The clip features a football and cheerleader theme, a nod to Madonna’s Half Time Entertainment hot spot at the upcoming Super Bowl. As long as she doesn’t pull a Janet Jackson ‘wardrobe malfunction’ we’ll be happy. We’ve seen enough of Madge's squoobs for one comeback, thanks.
