"A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...
So began the three movies that were to turn a band of weird and wonderful characters into household names. Fame and fortune awaited for the lucky few but spare a thought for those who never made it big; those forgotten extras, downtrodden walk-ons and bitter bit parts.
Plasticine Tatooine gives those lesser-known characters a chance to air their grievances and to lift the lid on life in the Star Wars second string." Oh, and just to make sure the project really was unique, I decided to make all of the characters out of plasticine." I love stuff like this, Plasticine Tatootine by Elliot Quince. CD

This is cool, as Garbstore's A/W stock filters through this one caught our eye, an English made traditional RAF style pop over military sweater with a nice twist. This puts us in mind of some of older garments from the house of Paley, nice. YHN

The Sopranos was the greatest TV show ever made, we love it, and we know we're not the only ones. Right about now I bet there's plenty of people going right through it all once again, just like us. We like it that much we're releasing another t-shirt, some years ago we did a Tony one - now it's time for the rest of the family. Here's a sneek peek at our forthcoming Sopranos tee with specially commissioned artwork from Peter O'Toole. Sample due back with us over the next few days with a release asap. YHN

This looks proper real horrorshow, a Clockwork inspired brew from The 3 Floyds Brewing Co, Munster, just down the road from Chicago - where a good friend of ours told us about this specialist beer, a deep roasted sweet stout. At 8.0% ABV it's not one to go mental with but it looks a top tipple. Someone find me some. YHN

Available soon, a nice hat for the coming drop in weather, the classic versatile five panel cap has been a steady inclusion in some of our favourite brands' collections over the last few seasons, affectively bringing the cap back to the fore. We have three different styles, a flannel grey, indigo denim and a classic tartan. Made in the United States and one size fits all. *PLEASE NOTE: branding is subject to change. CD

This looks rather interesting, aside from the cool artwork on the poster
Notre Jour viendra - "Our Day Will Come" is the first feature from Romain Gavras - basically about a troubled teen and an even more troubled shrink (Vincent Cassell) and ginger hair! They set off together on a violent road trip where Ireland is the destination and where redheads should be welcome. On dvd August 22nd.
Brendan Gleeson on form as he drinks, shags and snorts his way through the film whilst trying to be a police sergeant in a small town. Following a murder with international trafficking links he must team up with an American FBI agent (Don Cheadle) and work together.
Kill List the second feature from Ben Wheatley is being heaped with praise and to be fair from the trailer it does look like it has some serious potential. I've got to be honest I thought his debut film Down Terrace was awful, but this one does look like it could be an interesting and dark tale.
Also there's a new Todd Solondz film on the way.Dark Horse the film is about Abe, a 30-something male living with his parents, reluctantly working for his father while pursuing his hobby of collecting toys. To lose his "dark horse" status in the family, he's also trying to spark a relationship with Miranda, who recently moved back home after a failed literary/academic career. Miranda agrees to marry Abe out of desperation, and things go awry from there.
Nicholas Winding Refn follows up Bronson with Drive - starring Ryan Gosling as a stunt driver by day and a getaway driver by night.
On dvd now Super - an interesting tale of mental health, on face value it looks like a kids comic book film. It wasn't, it was full of ultraviolence too. Frank (Rainn Wilson) loses the plot when his wife leaves for a drug dealer. He assumes the role of The Crimson Bolt and goes and smacks the shit out of criminals, from dealers to queue jumpers with a monkey wrench.
As mentioned a few weeks back, Gary Oldman heads an impressive ensemble in a film version of John Le Carre's novel Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - previously on screen as a rather good TV series with Sir Alec Guinness.
We Need to Talk About Kevin. Acclaimed director Lynn Ramsey's (Ratcatcher) adaptation of the best selling book about a mother recounting the events leading up to and following her son's massacre of students and teachers at his high school. YHN
