Bring Hollywood Home With These 35 Classic Movie Inspired T-Shirts

Some people can't stand watching television, others don't dig video games, but everybody likes the movies. When Hollywood brings a story to the big screen people show up in droves to see the latest in cinematic storytelling come to life on the big screen.

Here's a selection of NeatoShop t-shirt designs inspired by classic movies, all of which cost less than the price of a pair of movie tickets!

Movies have made a big impression on folks from the very beginning:

Dracula by Matt Fontaine

And when movies went full color things got even more interesting:

The Sultry Lagoon by Hillary White

Monsters reigned supreme in the early days of cinema:

Kaiju Alpha by Pigboom

And to this day people like to see a giant monster stomping around destroying a big city:

We're Ready To Believe You by Austin James

Back before CGI effects all special effects were created by hand, by master artisans like Ray Harryhausen:

HarryHausen Fiend Club by Chema Bola8

And thanks to these special effects things could get mighty far out in films:

Invaders by Lopesco

Making you believe that a British nanny can fly through the air with the aid of an umbrella:

She's Poppin' by Hillary White

Bringing a fantastic, and dark, world to life in a fantasy film that starred nothing but puppets:

Another World Another Time by Medusa Dollmaker

Many of our favorite movie friends are the product of practical effects:

Gizbo by Irked Orc

And what better way to make a wisecracking alien life form come alive on the small screen than with a puppet?:

Alf Leone by inkOneArt

But movies aren't all about the special effects:

A Vintage Flesh Wound by Nemons

In fact, most movies revolve around the characters starring in the story:

Birds, Bears and Automobiles by Kenny Durkin

And bringing those characters to life means employing skilled actors:

A Life Comedic by Harebrained Design

Some of whom really seem to relate to their roles:

What Is Best In Life by ShasteenFrey

While others have roles written just for them and their unique persona:

Walken by Synaptyx

Movie stars can be a bit hard to handle at times:


But if you want them to play the character right you've got to let them do their thing:

Super Ultra Violence (Dark) by StationJack

Especially if the actor in question specializes in becoming one with the character:

Scissorsthrone by Naolito

Although you may want to make sure they don't get too caught up in their role, or they're liable to snap!:

Grand Theft Stapler by Grafx-Guy

That's the magic of the movies- they make you believe in the power of imagination:

You Are The Special! by Prismic Designs

Whether you're imagination is somewhere out in the stars:


Exploring the outer edges of the galaxy:

Guardian by inkOneArt

On a far-off Red Planet:

Totoro Recall by Gordon Brebner Designs

Or somewhere even stranger than Mars or the Milky Way:

It's A Trap! by Jcmaziu

Some far flung fairy tales show us what it means to human, and what it takes to make someone care:

Stone Wars by Punksthetic

Others show us that even heroes can be total A-holes:

Reservoir A-Holes by Crocktees

Because sometimes A-Holes make the best heroes:

Come Get Some by TrulyEpic

Heroes can be men of action:

Expendables 2 8-Bit Game by Rodrigo Marckezini

Or dark, brooding characters hell bent on revenge:

Revenge by CoDDesigns

Most heroes are a bit rough around the edges:

The Big Wazowski by Bleee

But who can blame them with all of the things they've seen?:

Brought To You By The Number 7 by Spicy Monocle

They battle the forces of darkness for our entertainment:

Trucker Jack by ZombieDollars

And battle leagues of bad guys to bring us the best in cinematic excitement:

Bond Villain Showdown by Stationjack

Which is why we love those characters, and their awesome movies, so darn much:

The Toon Who Kissed Me by Punksthetic

And that's why we love going to the movies, even if it's a sequel we've been waiting thirty years to see!:

Episode VII by Mike Jacobsen

We hope you've enjoyed taking a t-shirt tour of cinematic history, and we encourage our fellow cinephiles to check out the thousands of pop culture inspired designs found in the NeatoShop.
