Ones To Watch! Our Top Movies Coming In 2019…

If there was ever a year to be becoming much more of a regular face at your local cinema, this is IT!

With some totally epic films already out this year including Captain Marvel and Dumbo, we thought we would see just where this magic will continue and pick out some of our top films to watch out for in 2019. So much greatness to come!

Let’s take a look while we wait to grab our next batch of warm popcorn…

Toy Story 4



By this point, Toy Story is like a gift that just keeps on giving! Already being spoiled by three simply mega films all of which have been rated 100% or 99% on Rotten Tomatoes (unheard of level of record!), this fourth adventure is looking to be just as special as the last. With a new character Forky leading the story, we can’t wait to see Woody, Buzz and the gag back doing what they do best on the big screen.

Aladdin



Remember when they first announced the cast for this awesome live-action remake? Well… we’ve been bursting to watch this ever since then! Continuing the trend of bringing back some of our total childhood favourite films and throwing them in the 21st century, we can wait to watch this all-star cast bring our childhood back to life with a bang.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part



Ever watch a film and just think, this movie just TOTALLY gets me? Well, the first LEGO movie did this in buckets! Sure to have us laughing harder than we probably should at our age (ahem), We can’t wait to get lost once again in the wonderful world of LEGO. Can Emmet, Lucy, Batman and the crew save the day again?

Star Wars: Episode IX



Hold onto your space helmets peeps… things are about to get out of this world once again! Like all Star Wars fans in the land, we’re pretty much glued to our screens while we wait for more teasers and glimpses into the next instalment of Star Wars which is due to hit our screens at the end of the year in December. Perfect excuse to be stocking up on even more Star Wars merchandise on the site, right?

If it’s boatloads of nostalgia you’re after, look no further than the amazing upcoming Lion King live-action remake! We couldn’t even begin to count the number of times we’ve watch the Disney animation classic and we’re sure it will quickly be the case for this new edition.
Heading our way this Summer (June 19th… 25 years on from the original!), we are counting the days until we can dive back in and see Simba and the family like never before.

Guest Post: More Yo-Yo Than YOLO!

Hello! Let me quickly introduce myself, my name is Nikki and I am a fashion blogger from Passerellauk, but most importantly of all, I’m a fully fledged 80’s baby!

Growing up in the 80’s was pretty amazing wasn’t it? There are so many things that make the 80’s great. If you’ve all but forgot the crazy times of the 80’s, then let me jog your memory a little.

Remember Ring pops, Yo Yo’s and Spokey dokes?

We all remember the good old fashioned Yo Yo right? Can you remember the one that lit up? The Coca-Cola spinner? Most people still don’t understand why they were so popular… Why were they so cool? It was all because in 1989 the UK was gripped by Yo Yo fever.. and everyone got involved from our friends, to our mums and dads! We took them to school, we took them to the park, we swapped them, replaced them and finally, got very bored of them and that was the end of the Yo Yo craze! I have to be honest, I never learnt one trick, but if I saw a Yo Yo today I would probably have a go.

Marbles had so many uses in the 80’s didn’t they? There was the simple game of marbles, with a very strange set of rules which ended in me losing my amazing swirly and gaining a chipped cats eye, that I just knew had been found on the floor! The epitome of the marble was definitely the blue one wasn’t it? That blue marble had such an allure, you had to have it! When you finally won it, you were the king of the world…and then you lost it, damn!… “another game”?

Playing marbles was great, but an even better use for marbles was Ker-Plunk!

Your heart is in your mouth as the last couple of plastic sticks remain and it’s your turn. Which one do you go for? Green or yellow? Green or yellow? It’s the hardest decision you’ve had to make all day, except for the game of Jenga earlier. You go for yellow, you can feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, but mainly the weight of the marbles on your stick and you know you’ve chosen wrong. You can’t go back now, that’s it! As the marbles crash down, you catch a glimpse of your sister’s smug face, smiling away, knowing she has just won, for the fourth time today! I’ll beat her at Guess Who!

There was nothing more fascinating than watching a Slinky bounce down the stairs…

I would wait at the top, my sister would wait at the bottom and as that funky little spring made its way down the stairs along came my brother to spoil the fun mid-flow. Just as we finally got it to work. He gives it back in a mass of neon tangles and its game over! “Muuuuuuuuuuum!”

Neon slinky

Watching saved by the bell with Zack and Kelly, was like your real life Romeo and Juliet wasn’t it? We were gripped, would they, wouldn’t they? Much like the Towie of today.. or so I hear. Hours upon hours of my 80’s life were spent in a Saved by the Bell trance, wishing I was Kelly and my boyfriend was Zack. Ah, Zack!

saved by the bell

Lego! Everyone had Lego, lots of Lego! Little Lego people, Lego flowers, Lego cars, you name it. We had brand new Lego, hand me down Lego, car boot sale Lego, our best friends Lego I planned on keeping. Lego Helicopters, Lego houses, Lego merchandise, Lego turtles, Lego stuck to your foot! Stepping on a sneaky Lego brick is the worst!

If Lego friends were around in the 80’s it would have blown our little minds. Pink Lego? Are you kidding me?

Now the 80’s was all about getting outside, no matter the weather. Partly because I had two siblings and we drove each other mad if we stayed indoors. We had a massive back garden so we would play out there with amazing games like Twister, where we would all get involved.

Being outside in the 80’s was great because we had bikes, and my new Roller boots! Not only could I whiz around on wheels, but I could stop myself by tipping my toe forward whilst imaging I was an ice skater. Oh yeh!

I also enjoyed coordinating my boots and outfit because after all, the 80’s was all about the NEON!

….and it still is today!

Now the 80’s may be a thing of the past, but don’t be sad. We will always have our memories, and when that isn’t enough, we will always have….TruffleShuffle.

We’re LE-GOing Crazy Over This Amazing The Goonies Concept!

Have you ever seen such a glorious thing? No we love a good LEGO session, whether it’s building our dream modern style muticoloured house, making a towers as much as possible before running out of bricks or the cat knocks it over (more likely that one). No growing up with this toy, one things we admittedly never thought of was combining this amazing and amazingly simple toy with our all-time favourite retro 80s flicks…The Goonies.

Thankfully someone just did! Yep a fan has submitted this concept design to the people of LEGO to ponder over. The idea is to perhaps celebrate the 30th anniversary of this classic films in 2015…we know…how old do you feel now! EEEEP! Take the tour….

The project, by a user named Lyonsblood, features sets called Fratelli Fracas and Skeleton Scare based on moments from the film.
“In 2015, the Goonies will be 30 years old, so what better time than now to start a Cuusoo campaign to reignite LEGO’s interest in this franchise in time for the celebration” said Lyonsblood.  “With the success of the Back to the Future set, and Ghostbusters equally riding high in the Cuusoo charts, there’s definately enough interest in retro movies from the eighties.”

With little LEGO figures of the characters we all know and love, we’re so excited to see this become a reality and would be one of the first to put our name down for a set. We can’t help but feel this is 28 years too late though :/ Having this as a kid would have been the must-have set to get. Well….we can still pretend anways.

Check out the set’s LEGO page HERE and give them your support so this can become a reality!

What do you think? Any other classic 80s flicks you’d like to see get the LEGO treatment too? Shout them out below.
