2 New Shirts for 'Star Wars' and 'Braveheart' Fans

We love movies. You might too. But it's worth mentioning that if you're just "meh" on the art of filmmaking, or if movies are an OK timepasser that you can take or leave, or if you saw half of Snowpiercer and got bored ... well that's fine. You're allowed to find your heroes and inspiration and psychological touchstones somewhere else (jazz?). But for us, and for folks like us, movies recalibrate the way our brains consume everything. And we can't not share those new thought patterns with you, as articles or videos or shirts, and in between rewatchings of Snowpiercer because damn, why do they not make American movies that well all the time?

Seriously, how great is Braveheart? From its bitchin' story structure to its ability to get you AND your dad in front of basic cable on a Saturday, it's one of those perfect long movies you don't mind sitting all the way through. This design by Redbubble regular Buko gives William Wallace the epic rendering he deserves, in a mashup that turns one badass speech into an entire philosophy. And yes, the original Che shirt's become the dorm room Bob Marley poster of political tees. So recapture that magic in a reimagined, French princess-approved format, because they can take our land but they can never take our originality.

Star Wars is only 37 years old. Weird, right? Until that magical summer of '77 it was just a figment of a crappy first draft in George Lucas' desk. So whether or not the new sequels are any good, it's still fresh enough for a revival, just like vinyl records or vintage clothes. This design is another Buko joint, and turns our droid friends into the latest in old audio tech. Get it and help us saturate the world with the idea that Beats by Threepio ought to exist, and that a certain Senior Vice President of Still Being D.R.E. should get on making them.

Our Weekly Dose of Shirt Envy

Whatever you're working at right now, always remember you can loop other people in on your struggle. It's like how we put out clothing we think is great and then turn to the rest of the Internet to dress the rest of you (weekly reminder: turn elsewhere for pants). Of all the newest shirts on the Internet, these five are our favorites, deserving of your attention and maybe even that money in your PayPal account that you always forget you haven't spent yet AND TOTALLY CAN RIGHT NOW.
