The Weekly Retro Movie Rundown 71!

By the power of Greyskull! It’s only the Weekend!

So like the humble Koala quietly munching on eucalyptus. Let us be your aboriginal guide as we lead you on a walkabout through the Outback to find  cinematic tranquillity, we’ll encounter kangaroos with pouches full of retro movie mayhem and we’ll rest and play our didgeridoo as the sunsets to celluloid wonder.

Have a happy retro weekend! 🙂

We African’t Believe These Classic Movie Posters!

Now there’s no shocked faces among those of you reading this that we’re huuuuuge 80s films lovers which of course inspired our simply epic range of Movie T-Shirts *wink wink*. Being raised at possibly one of the most exciting decades for cinema (not biased at all!), with huge special affects looking ever more real ‘ahem’ and the stories taking us into far and distant lands where anything and everything was possible, we’re sure that the 80s was THEEE time that brought about some of the most iconic films that even today people can get excited about watching.

During this rose tinted time, the western world was pretty sure footed in its cinema going days, sadly however in the African country of Ghana and other surrounding countries, the film industry was only really just taking off.

With very little disposable income available to most people, the idea of building big cinema complexes seemed like a distant dream (and sadly still is in a lot of areas). So! Instead, small companies would go around with portable TVs, video players and a bag full of videos, visiting every town or village in turn, with film ‘screenings’ taking place in schools during the day, and outside at night.

Now to really bring in the crowds, these little pop up screens would commission artists to re-create some of the most iconic movie posters to advertise what they would be showing. This has resulted in some pretty amazing takes on the classics which is what we’d like to show you know……sit back and enjoy!

Terminator 3

James Bond – The Spy Who Loved Me

Mission Impossible

Oh and Mission Impossible 2

Face/Off

Gladiator

Evil Dead 2
