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 May 17, 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 10 WINNERS:
Courtney Small, who paired The Avengers with Mystery Men.
Helen Geib, who paired The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont and A Little Bit of Heaven with Dark Victory.
Andrew Robinson, who paired Ghostbusters with Zombieland.
Squasher88, who paired The Room with Oldboy.
Well done winners, bad luck losers, and go get ‘em future competitors. Your films for this week are:
God Bless America
Girl in Progress
Bonus: The Big Lebowski
Bonus: The Great Dictator
Time to sound off! Leave your most clever or creative pairings in the comment section below!
