The weekly retro movie rundown 2!

This week on the retro weekend movie rundown, it all seems a bit Superhero heavy, most likely due to the release of the Avengers movie in cinemas this week (anyone planning on leaving their sofa to watch that by the way?)

Despite that – there are still a few old school corkers in there so plenty of excuses not to leave your house all weekend in the name of your retro movie education!

I’ve done my best to include some classic movies I think you should watch, a few movies from that boy wizard we all know and love and one guilty pleasure – I’ll let you guess which one that is (Whatever!)

Enjoy and have a happy weekend of retro movie watching  TruffleShufflers…..
