Tuppence Top 10 news & reviews 9th August – 26th September 2010

This edition of Tuppence Magazine entertainment news & reviews’ top ten stories includes news of the upcoming launch of the Xbox Kinect, as well as a review of the Playstation Move, a full breakdown of Brandon Flowers’ Flamingo and news of the Labour Leadership election winner:

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (film) DVD

I didn’t have massive expectations for the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (film) DVD; I was just shattered from a beast of a week when I watched it and needed something fun and distracting to take my mind off shizz, and in this it lived up to my expectations brilliantly.

The Trip BBC 2

The founding fathers of the resurgence of British comedy, Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan, are joining forces once again in the upcoming BBC comedy, The Trip.

If you’ve ever seen one of the James Bond films you’ve probably been caught up in the intrigue of the MI6.

If you don’t know what it is yet, check out the video below and come back when you’ve picked your jaw up.

Playstation Move

The Sony PS3 Playstation Move is obviously a big attempt by the console giant to move in on the motion controller action that was jettisoned to mainstream legend status by the Nintendo Wii. However, the big question is whether or not the release is a step forward or simply a carbon copy designed to cash in on Nintendo’s near dominant market share.

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition 2010 entry period is now closed and the submissions are with the judges to decide the winner of the £12,000 prize.

The Greedy Cow, Mile End

Unassuming from the outside, but class on the inside is the best way to describe The Greedy Cow in Mile End.

  1. I just saw Prince of Persia last night, here in Sao Paulo and I concur with your assessment. A pretty fun movie and not too far-fetched. Good cinematography with the smooth zooms and pans. Cheers.
