Labyrinth opened in cinemas this weekend back in 1986 which gives you the perfect excuse to fill your wardrobe with our brand new tribute tees right?
Each one is adorned with a scene from the cult classic, capturing all the friends and foes that Sarah meets along the way.
Exclusively available right here at TruffleShuffle.com, come check out the full range of Labyrinth TShirts (or forever be suspended headfirst into the Bog of Eternal Stench.)
As much as we love getting to flick on the TV and tune into some of our favourite films (there’s nothing quite like watching it live, right?), there’s no denying our serious addiction to Netflix!
When we’re not hooked watching Friends (again!), or catching up on some Queer Eye, we’re streaming some of our favourite classic films while thinking back to simpler times.
To help spread some love for a good old-fashioned trip down memory lane, we thought we would hand-pick some of our favourite retro films currently available on Netflix. Grab the popcorn and enjoy!
Another chance to see a young Tom Cruise? Sign us up! A total late 80s classic, watch Dustin Hoffman in his Oscar-winning role.
Fun fact: TruffleShuffle’s founder stayed in the same hotel room as they do in Vegas!
Surely no retro movie collection would be complete without the iconic The Goonies! Thankfully Netflix knows what’s up and you can stream this total classic whenever you want, as often as you want… which is quite a lot for us!
Another classic, following the story of a young M.I.T janitor who has an amazing gift for mathematics, watch some of Matt Damons and Ben Affleck’s early work and of course bathe in the mighty Robin Williams. Need we say more?
The Breakfast Club
Another TOTAL classic! Hitting our screens in the mid-80s, this total gem was and has always been right up our street with its sense of fun, ace soundtrack and ability to send us right back into the school classroom with our friends. Major nostalgic trip watching this. Enjoy the ride!
So many words to describe this classic; shocking, funny, brilliant, retro… it goes on! The story joins yuppie NYC banker Patrick Bateman as he fights to keep on top of his game and his violent tendencies. Things like who has the better business card and where you have a table booked have never been so important than in this total gem.
Duunnn dunnn… duuuunnnn duun… duuunnnnnnnn dun dun dun dun dun…. there’s just something about Jaws that never gets old with us. It’s a film we’re always in the mood for and love to get lost in the Amity action. An early Speilberg gem, we love picking up on the amazing camera work and just how well the story develops. Nothing rushed, nothing lost. Take a peep at our exclusive Jaws TShirts!
Love a bit of classic Quentin Tarantino? Netflix has got you sorted! One of the biggest films of the 90s and about as iconic as they come, jump into the weird and wonderful world of Vincent, Jules, Mia, Butch and more where pretty much anything can go wrong and probably will!
Ace Ventura Pet Detective & Ace Ventura When Nature Calls
He’s goofy, he’s erratic and he’s a total legend! You know when you get tired just watching someone… this is that! Jim Carrey brings all kinds of energy and hilarity in both films, it’s little wonder there are just sooo many classic moments. Great lazy morning films.
Wayne’s World 2
Scwiiiiiiiiing! If you’re in the mood to party Wayne style, get streaming this 90s classic and join Garth and Wayne as they organize a rock festival while Wayne’s girlfriend’s manager is busy trying to woo her away from Wayne and move her to LA.
Did you got to Wayestock and get the t-shirt? We did… and here they are! Check out our awesome Wayne’s World TShirts.
Nothing beats a classic childhood tale, right? Netflix is really feeding our Roald Dahl hunger with the mid-90s beauty starring Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman, Mara Wilson and of course Embeth Davidtz. Why not pop on this classic with a cuppa in your very own Matilda Mug? Just part of our amazing range of Roald Dahl Merchandise.
Back To The Future 1,2 & 3
It’s pretty much impossible to even think about the 80s without thoughts of Back To The Future flooding through! Pretty much the cornerstone of films from the 80s, there’s nothing not to love about this franchise and with all three available to view, no better way to spend a day working your way through them. Take a peep at our exclusive range of Back To The Future TShirts for some movie inspo.
Anyone else remember having this on tape? We must have nearly worn the thing out! Thankfully, with the powers of online streaming (sounding like our parents already!), there’s nothing to wear out other than one of our 90s inspired TShirts! See what we did there…
About as classic as they come! You’ll be singing along word for work with the mighty Goblin King while you watch Sarah take on the Labyrinth! Keep snuggly and warm with one of our exclusive Labyrinth Christmas Jumper as part of our ever-growing range of Labyrinth Merchandise. Singing voices ready?
So there you have them peeps! We’re sure there are heaps more awesome retro films to be discovered on there and they will be adding more and more. Which films can’t you get enough of on Netflix?
All of glitter and gold filled dreams just came true!
We’d been given a nod by our friends at Hasbro that some BIG Jem news was on the way and here it is….
Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu and Paranormal Activity producer Jason Blum announced via YouTube that they’re working on modern day, live action reinvention of the 1980s Hasbro classic….
For the film, the trio are aiming to crowd-source crucial elements from casting to costume design. ‘It’s sort of like Kickstarter,’ says Mr Chu, ‘but instead of asking for your money, we’re asking for your creativity.’
Fans can upload videos and photos to YouTube or Tumblr explaining what they love best about the original Jem with the hashtag #JemTheMovie.
PLUS They’re put out an open casting call, asking people who can sing, dance and act to upload a two-minute video showcasing their talents for a chance to be involved.
As the distinct twang of a hammer hitting a bell repeatedly sounds off to signify the start of art and crafts time. Let us put our nimble fingers to work as we mould out of plasticine for you mega movie magic, we’ll glue together toilet roll tubes and breakfast cereal boxes and cover them with cinematic joyousness before we stand back with proud bewilderment and glee at our masterpiece we call celluloid wonder.
Have a happy retro weekend!
