Kicking It Old School – Our Top Netflix Picks Right Now!

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!

Rain Man

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!

The Goonies

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!

Check out our cool new collection of Goonies T-Shirts and more!

Good Will Hunting

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!

Get stuck into some of our exclusive The Breakfast Club TShirts for even more added 80s gold in your life!

American Psycho

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.

Jaws

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!

Pulp Fiction

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.

Matilda

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.

Jumanji

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…

.

Labyrinth

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?

Review Time! Our Best Of The Best From 2017

Phew! Now all the excitement and chaos is over, we thought we would take a few minutes to sit back, grab a cuppa and reflect on the last year to see what our highlights were and what you guys we’re loving on the site.

So! With that in mind, let’s dive in and take a peep at our best of the best from 2017!

Pink Polly Pocket Heart Shaped Cross Body Bag

Truly the icing on the TruffleShuffle cake in 2017 was our amazing Polly Pocket Bags! When we first released these to the wild, the world went wild as we had countless features, articles and posts about them. We could barely keep up!
Reaching far corners of the world, it seems this was just what was missing from many 90s kids collections and the demand was so far beyond what we ever expected. It didn’t take long for this little pink number to hit our top spot which is where it stayed for the rest of the year.

Labyrinth The Board Game by River Horse

In the age of smartphones, an app for everything and even kettles you can control via WiFi (the dream, right?), we were totally blown away with the reaction of this stunning 80s-tastic Labyrinth Board Game. Despite Labyrinth being a commercial flop when it was launched, it quickly reached cult status and earned a permanent place in many 80s kids movie collections.
We love that people are still rocking board games and think they are the best way to really bring everyone together and enjoy a bit of nostalgic fun.

Disney Beauty And The Beast Chip Mug

With the live action box office smash hit being released last year, it truly was the year of Beauty and the Beast. With soooo many fantastic products being created around this modern adaptation, there was was real chance for all fans of this iconic Disney take to get stuck into so many more goodies inspired by their favourte characters. Chip was really a headline act for us with sooo many people rushing to snap up our Chip cups. I mean… what a perfect mix of style and function right?!
We loved the details and finishing touches on this little chap, and apparently so many many others making this one of our top treats of 2017!

Men’s Black Stormtrooper And Darth Vader Selfie Star Wars T-Shirt from Chunk

So there’s no denying 2017 was a big year for Star Wars. With everyone building up buzz through the year for the long-awaited Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the hunger for amazing Star Wars goodies has never been so big with many fans of the classics getting stuck into the new generation, and many new fans of the latest Disney films loving the wealth of amazing merchandise available for their new favourite franchise.
Clearly, this fun and funky design from Chunk featuring Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper taking some time for a selfie struck a chord with soo many fans snapping this up. One of our personal faves here too so we can’t blame them!

Men’s Mr Grumpy I Had Fun Once T-Shirt

Okay… maybe not everyone had a blast in 2017. How do we know this? Well Mr Grumpy was sure busy this year with a whole heap of tshirt fans snapping up this exclusive design to either let the world know their current mood, or pass on to someone else to perhaps ‘send a message’. Either way this was still a front-runner through the year and from what we can see will continue to be a hit with Mr Men Little Miss fans.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Letter Wallet

Despite the first book being launched back in 1997, and the last film hitting our screens in 2011, there is still a HUGE buzz around Harry Potter which only seems to be growing stronger by the year. With a seemly unquenchable thirst for creative and new Harry Potter goodies that fans can really snatch up like a golden snitch, our Hogwarts Letter Wallet seemed to really cast a spell as it was a huge hit from the moment it joined us on the site and it’s not hard to see why.
With amazing detail and practicality, it’s the perfect mix of ‘oh I really like that’ and ‘oh and can actually really use this!’.

Harry Potter Marauders Map Heat Change Mug

Once again Harry Potter taking the main stage with this super fun and useful Heat Change mug. Getting to sit down with a cuppa and enjoy the Marauders Map coming to life just like in the books and movies, bliss with a biscuit right?

Women’s Grey Stranger Things Inspired Upside Down T-Shirt

Wondering what all the noise was and what possibly clogged up the local internet connection once a week on the dot? It was without a doubt the return of Stranger Things with the launch of season two on Netflix. Just like season one, we were treated to a wealth of action, suspense, amazing acting and characters, all cloaked in a warm glow of 80s nostalgia with amazing wardrobe, games and gadgets. Pretty much our perfect show right? Well… as it turns out not just us as it took the globe by storm and many of you wanted to share your passion for this hit with some of our exclusive TShirts and Sweaters. Thank you so much!

Men’s Pac-Man Skyscraper T-Shirt

when two icons collide… you end up with one amazing design which has really hit it big in 2017. For a long time now, this vintage Pac-Man design has been a real favourite with fans and has once again made it in our big hitters list. Available from just £14.99 too, this design speak volumes and is just about as recognisable as they come. Great way to pay homage to the iconic arcade game and raise a few smiles along the way.

So there you have them folks! 2017 officially done but the fun sure isn’t over! We will be here to guide you through 2018 with even more amazing finds and designs that will always keep you entertained.

U Got The Look… In Our Awesome New Prince Tees!

What more is there to say about Prince!? Hugely admired and respected by music fans and critics alike, Prince was a musical powerhouse during the 80s scoring hit after hit with his catchy singles combined with a flamboyant stage presence and extravagant dress sense.

He was arguably the biggest pop star on the planet during that time (with tough competition from Michael Jackson and Madonna!). Purple Rain, When Doves Cry, Let’s Go Crazy, Raspberry Beret, U Got The Look, how can you choose a favourite single of his when there’s so many classics to choose from!?

One Way or Another, You’re Going To Love Our Latest Blondie Tees!

Now, when a lot of people think of the 70s they might conjure up visions of huge flares, space hoppers, dodgy haircuts and hot summer festivals. This is pretty spot on really but for us there is one perhaps defining thing that jumps straight into our heads….Blondie!

Even just saying the name has some of the most iconic beats ringing in our ears which seem to then always be stuck there for a little while………….ahh sorry! Hitting the scene back in the mid 70s, Blondie (formed by singer Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein) rose to become a household name with hit singles and albums all over the world with their American new wave and punky sounds.

Oooooozing cool, Blondie become one of the most successful groups having released three platinum albums; Parallel Lines, Eat to the Beat, and Autoamerican which are still regarded as their best work.

What better way to celebrate such a 70s/80s icon that with your very own collection of Blondie TShirts!? Sure to turn all the right heads in a crowd, take a peep at our latest collection including album inspired designs…
