by Douglas Polisin | Published December 11, 2008
With only a handful of shopping days left, finding that special gift for a movie lover can sometimes turn into an elusive search for rare movies, expensive box sets, strange action figures and vintage memorabilia. But for those people who don’t have the time to bid on eBay all day and want the perfect holiday gift for a movie lover, Last Exit to Nowhere has the solution: A movie themed T-shirt.
With dozens of T-shirts sporting fictionalized logos, places and phrases from your favorite blockbusters, indies and classics, Last Exit to Nowhere is the place to go for all your movie lover shopping needs. The only problem is which shirt to choose. Luckily, MovieMaker put together this gift guide to streamline the process and ensure you have more time for wrapping presents.
Amity Island T-shirt
Make a big splash with this T-shirt, which is perfect for those beach-goers afraid to get their toes wet. From Steven Spielberg’s Jaws, patrons of the fictionalized summer resort town of Amity Island know that there’s nothing better than a nice, refreshing midnight skinny-dip in the ocean to relax. Also a great shirt for those who “need a bigger boat.”
Are you looking for a gift for that aspiring astronaut or space traveler? How about for that slimy egg or drooling alien enthusiast? Well, then this is the perfect shirt. Those who have seen Ridley Scott’s Alien know that when you hop aboard the Nostromo spaceship, you’re not only hauling mineral ore through space… you’re harboring a small alien in your chest.
The Slaughtered Lamb T-shirt
For those on your list who like to drink beer and blood, there has never been a better shirt. While legend holds that this local pub would smear the blood of a lamb on its door to keep werewolves at bay, John Landis’ classic An American Werewolf in London proved that even werewolves like a good beer… drinker. Get this shirt for someone and they’ll be howling at the moon for days.
Mighty Mick’s Boxing T-shirt
A must-have shirt for all those who box and enjoy fighting, as well as those looking to get into shape after the New Year. And if you know of someone planning on running up the steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this is the perfect top to do it in. With this Rocky T-shirt, you’ll be in great shape (at least in terms of gift-giving).
The perfect gift for that brainy scientist or engineer in the family, the Cyberdyne T-shirt just screams, “I know how to create a super race of machines bent on killing all humans!” But, if there’s any truth to The Terminator, that won’t happen for another 20 years or so—just enough time to bask in the glory of your great gift giving. Because with a T-shirt like this, you’ll never have to say, “I’ll be back” with a better gift.
