Here are five T-shirts that are perfect for fans of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
“In the darkest depths of the Internet lies the one t-shirt to rule them all… Ok, maybe not the darkest depths, but you get the gist. Lord of the Rings fans are without a doubt some of the most die-hard “nerds” around. And while the trilogy is exciting, action-packed, and full of long descriptions of mythic scenery, it is also undeniably witty. It’s probably why any time a LOTR fan spots a punny piece of fan flare, they have to buy it.”

Here’s how Once Upon A Time In Hollywood wrestles with the legacy of Sharon Tate.
“Though Sharon Tate acted in films from the ’60s like Valley of the Dolls and The Wrecking Crew, she’s still best known as the beautiful, pregnant wife of director Roman Polanski who was brutally killed by members of the Manson family on the night of August 8, 1969. Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time… in Hollywood nixes this final tragedy from her life, quite literally. In his alt-history film, the hippies attack Tate’s fictitious neighbors: the boozing, over-the-hill duo of TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stuntman Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). But the audience’s assumption that Tate, as played by Margot Robbie, is doomed shapes the tension of the film, and how Tarantino fits her into his fable about Los Angeles is primed to divide viewers. But who exactly was this rising star, and does Once Upon a Time do justice to her life?”
