Welcome to week two of the newly revamped Double Feature Friday here at Man, I Love Films. First of all can I say how thrilled I am that so many of you took the time to compete – here’s hoping you tell all your friends and we have an even bigger turn out this week!
I’ll get to this rounds films in just a second, but before I do that, I’ve got to announce the first week of winners! As I’m sure you’re acutely aware, we’ll be keeping a close count on the competition leaders via the Double Feature Friday’s Leaderboard (see the bottom of this post, and after three months, the film fan on top will be awarded a DVD prize. So, without further distraction, let all give a (virtual) round of applause to the five people who’ve jumped out to an early lead.
ROUND 1 WINNERS:
Dan Heaton, who really stretched himself by pairing Project X with…Project X (1987).
Courtney Small, who paired The Lorax with another film in which Danny DeVito plays a bizzare looking monster…Batman Returns.
Helen Geib, who paired Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie with another film about movie-making mishaps…Lost in La Mancha
Simon Columb, who whipped out a thesaurus and paired Jaws with…Teeth.
Squasher88, who depressed the lot of us with his divorce double feature, pairing A Separation with…Kramer vs. Kramer
Congratulations again to the five of you. There wasn’t a single bad entry, and it was an extraordinarily difficult task for Kai, Dylan and I to pick the winners…here’s hoping you all make it just as difficult each and every week! Special shout out to Dan Heaton, who came awfully close to scoring a second point with what was probably the funniest suggestion of the week: A Separation with Stuck on You.
Now, on to this weeks films. If you’ve read this far and don’t know the rules on the game (in which case, quite frankly, I admire your persistance), here’s how it works: I give you five titles – a combination of the weeks new releases and a couple of older films – and you try and come up with the most interesting or esoteric pairing for a double feature. We also ask that you get your answers in by Thursday March 15, so the judges have enough time to make their decision.
Simple enough? Then let’s get into it!
A Thousand Words
Bonus: Assault of Precinct 13
Bonus: All About My Mother
Time to put on those thinking caps! 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.
