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 July 12, 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:
Squasher88, who paired Ted with Lars and the Real Girl.
Andrew Robinson, who paired Magic Mike with The Girlfriend Experience and Take This Waltz with Blue Valentine.
Courtney Small, who paired Beasts of the Southern Wild with Pans Labyrinth.
Nolahn, who paired Batman Begins with Remo Williams, The Adventure Begins.
Congratulations to the winners, you updated scores have been tallied in the leaderboard at the bottom of the page. Bad luck to everyone who missed out – the good news is, you get another chance to compete…right now!!! You’re films for this week are:
