This Week We Have Been . . .
…walking down the red & blue carpet with the stars for the European premiere of Man of Steel, thanks to Toshiba! With Brit Henry Cavill taking on the iconic role and Christopher Nolan producing, the film definitely has a more serious tone than previous Superman films, but Zach Snyder’s sci-fi oriented vision ensures it’s 2 hours of non-stop fun!
…getting gastronomic with 51 Degrees London at The Roof Top Café. Set up by three foodie professionals, 51 degrees host themed taster evenings for food fanatics in London. We spent the evening tasting delicious Italian treats from the likes of Antico and Gelupo, washed down with more than a few glasses of white and red, courtesy of Tutto Wines. Not only was the food amazing, we had the best view of The Shard from the roof terrace!
…enjoying the nominations in this year’s Deutsche Börse Photography Prize at the excellent Photographer’s Gallery. While Broomberg & Chanarin’s book ‘War Primer 2‘ won the overall prize on Monday, our favourite was Cristina De Middel’s ‘Afronauts’ – a beautiful documentary piece about Zambia’s space program to send the first African astronaut to the moon. The free exhibition is on show until the end of June, so there’s still time to check it out.
…watching our new favourite reality TV show, The Call Centre. Forget TOWIE and Jersey Shore – this is the next best thing! If you’re a fan of The Office or if you’ve ever had the pleasure of ever working in a call centre we recommend you tune in (Monday nights on BBC3)!
…absolutely loving The Last of Us, the latest PlayStation 3 game from Naughty Dog. It follows the story of Joel and 14 year old Ellie, as they travel through a harsh post-pandemic America, leaving nothing but hostile survivors and the strange ‘Infected’ in their way. Essential gaming!
…getting our film buff on at London Film Museum in Covent Garden. Lights, Camera, London takes you on a journey through the history of the film industry in a fun way with lots of stills, costumes, props and extracts to keep you entertained. There’s themed areas of different film genres, showcasing how London has been the setting – and often the star – of films for over a century. Highlights include the sixties, Shakespeare and royal sections. That’s a wrap!
