Welcome to the first ever edition of Double Feature Friday…as far as you know, anyway. For those who don’t know me, my name’s Tom, and I’m the newest blogger and token Australian here at Man, I Love Films. I actually hosted this game over at my own blog for a few months last year, but have made the jump over to these shiny new digs after fairly shamelessly offering to whore myself out to Dylan and Kai (many thanks to them both).
For the uninitiated, the way this game works is very simple. Every week on a…wait for it…Friday, I’ll post the titles of a few new releases, along with one or two older films. You’ve then got seven days to comment with the cleverest pairings to go along with those films in a double feature. There’s no rules or restrictions – for example, you might make your selection based on a theme (e.g: Cave of Forgotten Dreams with The Flintstones Movie) or a play on words (e.g: Fright Night with Night Fright). Just remember that we the judging panel (made up of Dylan, Kai and myself) are looking for originality, creative thinking and maybe a little bit of wit (so don’t just go pairing The Empire Strikes Back with Return of the Jedi…you’re smarter than that!)
At the start of each subsequent post we’ll announce the previous weeks winners. Every three months, the leader of the tally will be awarded a DVD prize! At which point the leaderboard will be reset and the fun will begin again!
Ok, that’s enough administrative rubbish. Let’s get into the game!
Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie
Bonus: A Separation
Not a particularly exciting week for new releases I’ll admit (I’ve actually seen Project X already and think it’s probably one of the worst films ever made). But that shouldn’t stop you from having fun! Sound off in the comments section below as to what movie you’d like to see paired – and why – with each of this weeks selections.
