The TruffleShuffle gang have been excitedly waiting for the release of the new Captain America movie. Having watched the trailer months ago we have been eagerly anticipating a staff night out to the flicks, after the rave reviews, bring on the pop corn, hurry up 5pm – we are off tonight!!
For those of you who might not have seen it here is a little taster:
We shall of course be wearing a selection of Captain America t-shirts, strategically planned so as not to commit a fashion faux pas in turning up in the same outfit – error!
Another modern day movie adaption of one of our favourite retro cartoons is headed our way, this time it’s the turn of The Smurfs!
The last film was ‘The Smurfs and the Magic Flute’, which came out in 1976 so this new film has been a long time coming! This time though, instead of the traditional cartoon style which we’re all used to, the characters have been given a modern makeover and are starring as 3D CGI animated models which has come as a bit of a shock to the Smurf fans here at TruffleShuffle! Have a look at the trailer below and see for yourself…
The new movie is due for release in the UK on August the 10th but just came out over in America this last weekend which has given us the chance to see what the critics think before deciding whether or not to shell out on tickets! Having read some of the reviews from bloggers etc though, it seems as though the overwhelming response hasn’t been that great. Reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes have said “If you remember the characters fondly, this theatrical version will do little to enhance that memory…” and “[A] relentlessly witless and cynical children’s movie packed with potty jokes, product plugs and double-entendres along the lines of “What the Smurf?”” , although there is no major praise for the film there are still a few people who think it’s good to see the Smurfs back and they can be quite sweet. General consensus seems to be that this new version lacks the cool and cute charm of the original cartoons and is strictly for kids (not kids at heart, like us!) Damn!
With that in mind, perhaps the coolest thing to come out of this new movie is Katy Perry’s amazing Smurfette dress that she wore to the American premiere. She looked amazing showing off a new blonde hairstyle (no doubt a homage to Smurfette whom she voiced for the new film) and even managed to out Smurf the real deal on the red carpet!
If Katy has inspired any of you guys to add some Smurf magic to your wardrobe, check out some of the great tees we have on the site for a more subtle way of showing your appreciation! My personal favourite has to be the tee that’s accusing Papa Smurf of being a hipster – he’s suddenly gotten a lot cooler in my eyes! There are also some fab Smurfette designs available so you ladies can channel the cartoon cutie and steal Katy’s style!
Back to the movie though, we’re curious as to what you guys think of yet another remake? Will any of you be venturing out to the cinema to catch some Smurfs action? And if there are any long term Smurf fans, what do you think of their radical new makeover? Let us know!
With the past few days seeing the welcome arrival of some much needed sunshine and warmth, we have been reaching for our beloved cans of fizzy pop, tinglingly cold, straight from the fridge! Whether you take yours with ice and a slice, neat, or mingling in with your favourite naughty tipple, there’s always a special place for some sparkling refreshment! Coca-Cola is a worldwide phenomenon with an instantly recognisable logo and advertising slogans such as ‘Things Go Better With Coke’, ‘Have a Coke and Smile’ and ‘Enjoy Coke’ and we are incredibly proud to introduce our new range of EXCLUSIVE Coca-Cola tees from Fame and Fortune which coincide with the 125th year anniversary of the cult beverage. We even have some rather tasty treats from Punky Allsorts to add a retro pop of fun to any look!
