No Spoilers - Episode 1

Posted By:

The Imdb, a bunch of self declared movie guru’s bunched together to provide the ultimate movie source for us mere mortals to use as a reference of what to watch on a Friday night or who starred in a certain film. 

The Imdb have a constantly evolving correlation of what the Imdb community deem by way of voting to be the greatest 250 films ever to grace the silver screen.    

What's this got to do with T-Shirts or, we hear you say. Well at, we love a good old film, which gave us divine inspiration to create a plethora of unofficial designs to form a film T-shirt collection that complement some of the greatest films ever as voted for on Imdb while also paying tribute to films that didn’t make that Top 250 movie list that we think should of made the list.

Pulp Fiction - Rated Number 8

The second mainstream film from legendary director Quinten Tarantino in a modern pop culture classic. Based around four short stories featuring hitmen, a boxing match, gangsters and armed robbers interwoven in a non-linear fashion in a way that only Tarantino could realistically make a success.

Trivia - Quentin Tarantino wrote the character of Winston "The Wolf" Wolfe specifically for Harvey Keitel.

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly - Rated Number 10

Sergio Leone’s fourth film in the spaghetti western film genre, is a treasure hunt set during the American civil war. A gunslinger(Clint Eastwood), a hitman(Lee Van Cleef) and a wanted criminal (Eli Wallach) all racing to find buried treasure in the form of gold and the experiences they encounter all come together in this spaghetti western classic.

Trivia - Filming had a short delay when Clint Eastwood refused to turn up for work until writer and director Sergio Leone agreed to his $250,000 fee, in addition to a new Ferrari.

The Empire Strikes Back - Rated Number 15

We’re guessing that Imdb might be having issues with the voting software, with the Empire Strikes Back ranking higher than the original Star Wars a new hope. As with all the Star Wars films, a battle between good and evil is the common theme. With the introduction of new characters in the way of Boba Fett and Yoda, culminating in the ultimate duel between Luke and Darth Vader. 

Trivia - Yoda's iconic manner of speech has the parts of speech in object-subject-verb order. Very few languages on Earth use this, and most are based in the Amazon river basin.

The Silence of the Lambs - Rated Number 22

Based on the novel by Thomas Harris, this genre bending drama, crime, thriller and horror movie won critical acclaim and a few Oscars. It tells the story of a trainee FBI agent Starling (Jodie Foster), who enlists the help of an imprisoned serial cannibal Hannibal (Anthony Hopkins) to help catch a savage serial killer that kills under the name of Buffalo Bill.

Trivia - The "death head" marking on the moth is a reference to Edgar Allan Poe's famous short story "The Gold Bug", which also featured an insect with a skull-like pattern on its back.

Star Wars - Rated Number 28 

Quite possibly, the revolutionary film which reinvented and transformed the Sci Fi genre. The story of a young Jedi Knight joining forces with a princess, a couple of droids, a smuggler and a rebel alliance take on the Imperial Forces led by Darth Vader in the ultimate battle of good vs evil.

Trivia - Kenny Baker (R2D2) has said that often when the cast and crew broke for lunch, they would forget he was in the R2-D2 outfit and leave him behind.

Back to the Future - Rated Number 30

This logic bending 80’s comedy see’s a 17 year old Marty McFly accidentally sent 30 years back in time with his mad professor friend Doc Brown via his modified DeLorean car. The film tells the story of his journey where he meets both his then teenage parents in his quest to get back to the future 1985.

Trivia - The two red labels on the flux capacitor say "Disconnect Capacitor Drive Before Opening" (at the top) and "Shield Eyes From Light".

Leon (The Professional) - Rated Number 34

The story of the friendship between Leon (Jean Reno) a professional hitman and 12 year old Mathilda (Natalie Portman), and Mathilda’s quest to seek revenge on a crazed drug lord (Gary Oldman) who killed her family.

Trivia - During the filming involving all of the police cars on the street, a man ran from a store he had just robbed. When he encountered the movie set by accident, he saw all of the "police" and gave himself up to a bunch of uniformed extras.

A Clockwork Orange - Rated Number 101

Billed as a Crime/Sci-Fi, this bizarre Stanley Kubrick classic tells the story of Alex, the leader of an ultraviolent gang “The Droogs”  whose rampages involve theft, murder and rape. Eventually he is captured, imprisoned and then involved in an aversion therapy programme to reduce his prison sentence 

Trivia -  Korova Milk Bar is named after the Russian word for cow. Moloko (written on the wall) means milk. The bar's sculptures were based on the work of sculptor Allen Jones. Stanley Kubrick had the milk dispensers emptied, washed and refilled every hour, as the milk curdled under the studio lights.
