The Weekly Retro Movie Rundown 94

Uncle Edgars twirling moustache! It’s only the weekend! Somewhere deep inside a dense African forest, let us be your forever migrating herd of magnificently giant but eloquent elephants, as we plough our way through the thick bush of retro movie magic looking for  vegetation to nourish our cinematic hunger before we stop and bathe in an oasis of celluloid wonder.

Truly outrageous news…. There’s a Jem And The Holograms movie on the way! #jemthemovie

All of glitter and gold filled dreams just came true!

We’d been given a nod by our friends at Hasbro that some BIG Jem news was on the way and here it is….

Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu and Paranormal Activity producer Jason Blum announced via YouTube that they’re working on modern day, live action reinvention of the 1980s Hasbro classic….

For the film, the trio are aiming to crowd-source crucial elements from casting to costume design. ‘It’s sort of like Kickstarter,’ says Mr Chu, ‘but instead of asking for your money, we’re asking for your creativity.’

Fans can upload videos and photos to YouTube or Tumblr explaining what they love best about the original Jem with the hashtag #JemTheMovie.

PLUS They’re put out an open casting call, asking people who can sing, dance and act to upload a two-minute video showcasing their talents for a chance to be involved.

We’ll be donning our Jem T-Shirts and giving it our best shot!!

EXCLUSIVE Ladies White Jem And The Holograms Logo Boyfriend T-Shirt from TruffleShuffle

More ‘assignments’ will be revealed in coming weeks, with producers keeping fans up to date via the film’s website JemTheMovie.com.

Can’t flipping wait……

Buyers Picks: Festivals

As the first stages of Spring, ‘spring’ into action and we are taken aback by the sight of blue skies and that warm tingly sensation provided by the lesser spotted sun, I get to thinking about what fun things the Summer has in store. First and foremost is festival planning! So this months look is a geared around preparing for festival season and TruffleShuffle certainly has a lot to offer in this department!

I can picture myself at Festival Number 6, enjoying wonderful music, poetry and culture, all in the wonderful surroundings of Portmerion, and there WILL be sun which means I need plenty of tshirts and some groovy sunnies at hand.

Here are my hot picks for girls …

And, for the boys…
