Double Feature Friday, Games — August 31, 2012 at 3:00 am



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 September 6th, 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.


Trey, who paired The Apparition with The Entity.

Andy, who paired Hit & Run with Vanishing Point and Premium Rush with North by Northwest.

Dan Heaton, who paired Exit Through the Gift Shop with My Kid Could Paint That.

Nolahn, who paired Saving Private Ryan with Let’s Get Harry.

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!!! Your films for this week are:


The Possession

The Ambassador

Bonus: Dragonball Evolution
