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 26, 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 6 WINNERS:
Glen H., who paired The Three Stooges with The Artist.
Andy Hart, who paired Lockout with Escape from New York and Cabin in the Woods with Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.
Squasher88, who paired Bully with Carrie.
Courtney Small, who paired Little Shop of Horrors with The Happening.
Well done winners, bad luck losers, and go get ‘em future competitors. Your films for this week are:
The Lucky One
Think Like A Man
Bonus: Air Force One
Bonus: The Bicycle Thief
Slim pickings this week, but hopefully the bonus picks make up for it. Leave your most clever or creative pairings in the comment section below!
