Welcome to the Final Edition of this round of Double Feature Friday, 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 24, so the judges have enough time to make their decision.
This time next week there won’t be any new films. Instead, I’ll be annoucing the innaugural Double Feature Friday winner, at which point the game board will be reset and fun the will begin again.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. There’s still one week left; time enough for anyone to snatch the lead and the (purely imaginary) trophy. I’ll get to this weeks films in just a second. But first…last weeks winners:
Helen Geib, who paired Dark Shadows with High Spirits.
Andrew Robinson, who paired God Bless America with Red State and The Great Dictator with Downfall.
Steve Honeywell, who paired Girl in Progress with Girl, Interupted.
Dan Heaton, who paired The Big Lebowski with Brick.
Well done winners, bad luck losers, and go get ‘em future competitors. Your films for this week are:
What To Expect When You’re Expecting
Bonus: Dungeons and Dragons
Time to sound off! Leave your most clever or creative pairings in the comment section below!
