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…..

The First Avenger.

This July, there’s excitement brewing in the TruffleShuffle office… On the 29th of July the man who is not afraid to mix stripes with stars will be hitting the big screens all around the UK. Some may think this is some kind of fashion faux-pas, but for Captain America it’s the only option….

So with the movie just around the corner, what better time for me to fill you in on a bit of background information on this fighter for Liberty and Justice….. Captain America‘s real name is Steve Rogers. During World War 2 Rogers was turned away by the US military for being too sickly and weak but Rogers was given a second chance to serve his country by joining a top secret military project to create the world’s first super soldier. The procedure involving Super-Soldier Serum and “Vita-Ray” treatment was a success but the experiment was ambushed by the evil Red Skull (Head of Nazi terrorist activities, the commander of terrorist organization HYDRA & soon to become Roger’s greatest foe). Unfortunately for Red Skull, the scientists were also killed during the ambush taking the super soldier formula with them.

Powers

The serum and ray treatment turns Roger’s into the pinnacle of human perfection, giving him super human strength, speed, agility and extraordinarily keen reflexes and senses. He has blended judo, western boxing, kickboxing, and gymnastics into his own unique fighting style and has also trained in multiple martial arts and weapons training. His weapon of choice is possible one of the most iconic in the Marvel universe, a shield.

Captain America’s iconic shield

Captain America's Shield
Captain America's Shield

Made from a near indestructible mix of adamantium steel and vibranium alloy this shield is able to withstand massive impacts from enemy gun fire and huge energy blasts. Captain America utilizes this unique weapon by throwing it at his enemies (sometimes multiple targets) and luckily for him, his trusty tool then returns to his side, just in time to protect him from enemy attack.

The Movie

“Captain America: The First Avenger” will focus on the early days of The Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program and becomes the super soldier that is Captain America. And with help from Bucky Barnes and Peggy Carter he’s set to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization led by Red Skull. Captain American is played by Hollywood star Chris Evans – the Fantastic Four actor has famously bulked-up for his role as Steve Rogers, a young soldier deemed unfit for military service who volunteers for a top secret project that transforms him into a human-fighting machine.

Other famous faces to star alongside Evans include Tommy Lee Jones, Dominic Cooper and Matrix villain, Hugo Weaving as Captain America’s arch-nemesis, Red Skull.

Chunk – A great British t-shirt brand!

Hi my name’s Simon and I’m a Chunkaholic. There I said it. Now, If you haven’t come across any of our men’s T-shirts from Chunk then you’re in for a right treat. I’ll start with a quick history lesson…

Chunk started back in 2001 having launched some designs all based on the Haynes Car Manuals iconic cover illustrations. Ten years on and Chunk is now one of the UK’s leading urban street-wear labels. Chunk’s ethos was, and still is, to produce great designs on quality garments, targeting 18-35 year old males with a strong emphasis on cool nostalgia. Famous for their bold graphics, tongue-in-cheek humour and unique design quirks, Chunk now has worked with some of the biggest licenses in the world, which include Marvel, Hanna Barbera, Fremantle Media (Danger Mouse) and Lucas Films (Star Wars) – for which Chunk won a licensing award in 2007 for its Star Wars range. The future promises to be incredibly bright for Chunk as the brand expands into even more retro goodness further cementing its reputation as a great British brand.

With TruffleShuffle.com offering a massive range of amazing retro t-shirts, gifts and accessories we get to see cool new stuff all the time. But for me nothing matches the excitement of a new Chunk catalogue turning up because I know it will be full of amazing new designs. It’s their ‘outside the box’ approach to designing a t-shirt that I love, generally taking a familiar character such as Darth Vader or Mr.T and putting them in an unusual situation, IT’S GENIUS. I could only wish that when I’m down at the coast for a cheeky weekend surf that I catch a Stormtrooper ‘out the back’ riding that perfect wave or driving past my local scrap yard would reveal that Mr.T, Luke and Bo Duke, Michael Knight and the Trotters famous ‘rides’ had reached the end of their lives (probably due to the government Scrappage scheme!!). Only t-shirts from Chunk make this happen.
