Get Your Next-Fix With Our Top 10 Retro Movies and Shows On Netflix!

Howdy TruffleShufflers! Did you have a lovely weekend? If yours was anything like mine, then you had a good long browse through your movie collection to find some old favourites and spent a lot of time binge-watching that series that you’ve just got into. Am I right?
Speaking of old favourites, I’ve been trawling the deepest depths of Netflix to find their….

Top 10 Retro Movies and Shows!
.
So here goes, get ready for some serious nostalgia and hopefully, a little inspiration for something to to keep you smiling and fill the evenings now you’re back at work or school or wherever again.
.
1.    The Addams Family (1991) Who could forget this macabre comedy classic? Wednesday and Pugsley fight to save their home from the evil developer, desperate to get her hands on the family fortune by manipulating an imposter to pose as the long-lost cousin Fester, but nobody counted on the imposter being the real deal!
2.    Sister Act (1992) and Sister Act 2 (1993) I don’t know about you, but both of these movies were in my Dad’s VHS collection back in the day and watched them both until the tape got chewed and snapped. A pair of classic comedies in which Delores (Whoopi Goldberg) goes into witness protection as a Nun after seeing her gangster boyfriend commit murder. Her talents for choreography lead her to form a choir, firstly with the nuns and secondly with the unruly kids that go to the Catholic school, ultimately saving the church and school respectively. Yes it’s basically the same movie twice, but you can’t have too much of a good thing!
3.    Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) This twisty toon adventure is a magnificent technological display of real-time action and cartoon madness. Made in a time long before Pixar had developed their cutting edge animation software, every animated frame in this movie was hand drawn over the live-action cells and painstakingly coloured in post production. Imagine that! Bill Murray was in the running for Bob Hoskins’ role, but couldn’t get back to the director in time. He reportedly screamed aloud at a dinner party when he realised he had missed his shot. As you would!
4.    Speaking of Bill Murray, it just wouldn’t be a retro movie rundown without giving Ghostbusters (1984) a mention. With the third movie due to be shot next year (Yes that’s right, there’s going to be a Ghostbusters 3!) it’s time to revisit the original and laugh your socks off all over again. Also, give Stripes (1981) a go, Bill Murray and the late, great Harold Ramis team up as infantrymen that join the army during the cold war, imagining that basic training will be much like a health spa to get them back into shape, they were wrong…

5.    White Men Can’t Jump (1992) is a brilliant buddy movie of sorts, filled with gritty dialogue and great basketball action scenes. As Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes team up to hustle local ball-players their characters grow and grow through hatred, suspicion and greed to learn to love each other and ultimately win the grand final as equals. If you can ignore Rosie Perez’s ridiculous voice, you can definitely enjoy this wonderful, heartfelt lycra-clad 90’s classic. Random Trivia: Woody never did make a real slam dunk, the hoop at the end is actually nine-and-a-half feet high, not the regulation ten feet. (But we’ll let him off!)
6.    Party on dudes! Its Wayne’s World! (1992) Surely this one needs no introduction, let’s just sit and remember everyone’s favourite scene…
7.    Shut up! It’s, like, so totally Clueless! (1995) This wonderfully satiric adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, in which the lead can’t help matchmaking everyone around her is a laugh-a-minute mockery of all things Beverley Hills. Filled with homage, irony and subtlety it’s no wonder this brilliantly executed teen flick is now recognised as one of the best films of the era. Random Trivia: though Paul Rudd’s character is cast as being several years older than Cher and her friends, Stacey Dash who plays Dionne is actually three years older than him!
Ladies Clueless Ugh As If! Slub Scoop Neck T-Shirt
8.    Enter the danger zone! That’s right, in at number 8, it’s Top Gun (1986) With Tom Cruise at his steely finest, portraying the hotshot pilot, Maverick, opposite the chisel-jawed Val Kilmer, Iceman. Fighting prejudice and his own hubris, Maverick must prove that he is worthy of the title, Top Gun. Random Trivia: The real top gun school in California make staff pay a $5 fine every time they quote the movie.

9.    Here’s another show that needs no introduction, unless you lived in a cave throughout the late 90s, you’ll most likely be aware of a funny little Japanese show that took the world by storm, Pokémon! (1997) I’ve no doubt that anyone reading this will almost certainly have tried to catch ‘em all at some point, done a shady deal for a shiny Charizard card and spent all their pocket money to win a cuddly Pikachu at the fair. Am I right? The first season, the Indigo League is now on Netflix and believe me, it’s just as good as it ever was.
10.    Whilst we’re on awesome kids cartoons, they’ve also just added a load of Cartoon Network shows including Johnny Bravo, Courage the Cowardly Dog  and Dexter’s Laboratory. “Omelette du fromage!!!” Need I say more?
Johnny Bravo Whoa Mama Framed Print Dexters Lab T-Shirt
So! We have come to the end of the road. What do you think? Did I miss anything? Have I inspired anyone to watch something new, or something they haven’t seen in ages? I hope so.
I hope you all have a great week and remember to like and share and all that good stuff. Also, pop over to the website to buy some awesome Movie T-Shirts or Cartoon T-Shirts inspired by many of the shows and flicks mentioned above. (But not all of them, sorry about that!)

Men’s Navy Class Of 77 Star Wars T-Shirt from Chunk: The 70’s is generally regarded as a sartorial black hole – the decade of fashion faux pas, bad hair and much mirth.

Guest Post: 80s Movies Filming Locations in L.A.

You could say I’m a bit of an eighties nerd. I run the world’s largest retro websites doyouremember.co.uk, I’ve written a book all about the 80s and I spend way too much time listening to 80s music and watching 80s movies. So you can probably imagine my excitement when I got the opportunity to jet off to L.A. on a mission to track down the filming locations of some of the very best movies of the eighties.

A business meeting in California gave me the opportunity to stay with some friends in San Diego for the weekend and these good and very patient friends of mine kindly agreed to spend a long day driving me hundreds of miles around L.A. hunting down cool photo opportunities.

When the good people at retro t-shirt store TruffleShuffle.co.uk heard about my forthcoming mission, they kindly agreed to give me the matching movie t-shirts to wear in each location.  They have the coolest t-shirts in the world – seriously!

So at the weekend, after all the business meetings were concluded, I threw on my first 80s t-shirt and headed off in search of the first stop on our circular tour – Doc Emmet Brown’s house from Back to the Future.

Next up was Elliott’s house from E.T. (the Extra-Terrestrial)

The next stop was the holy grail of 80s film locations – Marty McFly’s house from Back to the Future

I had hoped to get to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air’s house but Google Street View showed me that you really couldn’t see much of it because of the trees planted all around the perimeter so we skipped this in favour of visiting Hollywood instead. We saw the famous Hollywood sign on the hills and the walk of fame with the stars names and handprints on the ground. We also popped into the famous Roosevelt Hotel where Marilyn Monroe began her modelling career and took a look around. Something struck me as very familiar about the pool area at the hotel and a quick Google revelased the reason: this was the place they filmed the scene where Tom Hanks catches up with Leonardo DiCaprio in “Catch Me If You Can”.

After a cracking meal in the Hard Rock Cafe, we set off for our next destination: Ferris Bueller’s house!

And then swung by Hill Valley High School from Back to the Future.

The final stop on our tour was the Puente Hills Mall, better known as Twin Pines Mall from Back to the Future. This was where the scene with the DeLorean was filmed. It has just got dark as we arrived which was perfect since this scene was shot at night time anyway and seemed all the more familiar in darkness!

We managed to get around all these locations in one tiring day with about 300 miles of driving. We spotted two more filming locations the next day, one from The Naked Gun (“Everywhere I look, something reminds me of her”)…

And the bar from Top Gun where they filmed the “Great Balls of Fire” scene. In fact if you look carefully, you can see the actual piano they used in the far right corner of the picture.

Thanks again to the people at TruffleShuffle.co.uk for providing the cool t-shirts and for my amazing friends Dale and Jayne who drove me around and helped me fulfil my nerdy dream!

xoxo
