I’ve just discovered a great new t-shirt blog called Slightly Wrong Quotes. The site is a delight of film and TV quotes and catchphrases, all of which are slightly wrong. The sense is the same, but there is just something about each and every one of them which wants to make you scream. The quote from Taxi Driver, for example, is misquoted as ‘Are you speaking to me?’ and MC Hammer’s most memorable song is reworded as ‘Can’t touch him’

I’m loving this Jerry Maguire t-shirt which makes a deliberate balls up of both the phrase and the title of the film. A great, quirky idea and an awesomely irksome gift for any film buff!

T-shirts don’t get more awesomely retro than this Flash Gordon number, available from Topman for a mere £18. Flash Gordon will always be the film with the campest quotes ever. “Flash, I love you, but we only have 14 hours to save the earth” springs initially to mind, but how about this one “I knew you were up to something, though I’ll confess I hadn’t thought of necrophilia?”; how on earth did that get past the censors? Ah, what a great film, they just don’t make them like that any more.

Anyway, today’s tee is a bit of an homage to possibly the cheesiest films ever; sure to be a talking point if you’re out and about. I love it!

I seem to have spent a fair portion of the day staring at the ceiling looking at vintage film posters. To be fair, I was in a coffee shop and the caffeine high seemed to crick my neck a little. Still, I thought it might be time for a film inspired tee, so today I’ve chosen a printed slogan t-shirt from Old Skool Hooligans inspired by the Shining. Featuring the lines “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, this is one of those numbers that if you know the film, you’ll understand the tee. If not, you’ll just thing it’s another old and meaningless wardrobe cast off. Check out the site for more film inspired tees. In the meantime I’ll try to come down off my caffeine high and restore the balance in my vertebrae.

Mar-Tee!

Dark Bunny Tees is a  really good site if you’re looking for a classic cult film or TV t-shirt. One of my absolute faves is this Back to the Future t-shirt, one of a limited edition of 350 worldwide. It’s a beautiful number with lots of little quotes from the film on it, and a cartoon of Marty and the Pinheads. T-shirts like this are ones to treasure, and it’s an absolute bonus that this one only costs £18.

Classic films never date, so this is a tee you’ll be rolling out again and again over the years. Take a look at some of their other tees; you’ll keep going back for more.

Having noticed that there are many a 3D film out there right now (the best of which being Toy Story 3), I went on a hunt for a really good 3D t-shirt.

Sadly, I am still hunting, and thus in the meantime, decided to provide two alternatives. Firstly, a t-shirt that really does leap out at you.

(although I don’t know why!)

And secondly, a bit of Kelly Brook in Piranha 3D (most people will know why)

meanwhile, I’m still hunting! 3D t-shirts don’t seem to have quite come of age yet, maybe because the people inside them are 3D, but I will keep exploring and see what is there!

R Splat!

R Splat!

Like a grown up, sultry version of Harry Potter is how the Twilight Saga looks from afar. More cool and teenagery, with lots of beautiful people, and much more of an interesting moral dilemma what with the whole blood sucking thing. If Jack Wills did vampires, this might well be what they would look like, all louche and stylised, and jolly tasty in their own little way. Both the novels and films have gone stratospheric, and rather unsurprisingly, so have the actors.

Top hottie vampire, Edward, played by Robert Pattinson has just scooped every prize going at the National Movie Awards (why is it called Movie Awards when it was held in London, by the way? Don’t we have films here in the UK?) I just noticed that everywhere you turn, Robert Pattinson is skulking on a magazine cover, looking broody and moody (or is that brooding? I think broody is for hens). I keep imagining, though that Nicola Roberts, aka the pale one from Girls Aloud must be waiting in the wings to slap her pale-face make up onto him, because he has defied her, and is no longer her perfect colour match. Arrrrgh! Look out RPats, here she comes!
