Welcome to Double Feature Fridays, a weekly competition in which I challenge YOU to pair the week’s new releases with your favourite older or classic films.
Each week I name the new theatrical releases as well as a few other bonus picks of my choice. Your job is to comment with what other movie you’d like to screen in a double bill with the given films, and why. You can pick any movie you want – recent, classic, whatever – just be sure get your answers in by Thursday April 19, so the judges have enough time to make their decision.
I’ll get to the movies for this week in just a second, but first it’s time to list off last week’s winners. Fingers crossed you are among them.
ROUND 5 WINNERS:
Dan Heaton, who paired American Reunion with Grosse Point Blank.
Nolahn, who paired Titanic with The Poseidon Adventure and The Hurt Locker with Blown Away.
Glen H, who paired Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fans Hope with The People vs. George Lucas.
Simon Columb, who paired Ben-Hur with Planet of the Apes.
Well done winners, bad luck losers, and go get ‘em future competitors. Your films for this week are:
The Three Stooges
The Cabin in the Woods
Bonus: Little Shop of Horrors
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 week’s selections.
