Double Feature Friday, Games — September 7, 2012 at 3:00 am



Welcome to the PENULTIMATE EDITION (for this “season”) of 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 13th, 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.


Andy Hart, who paired Lawless with The Untouchables and Dragonball: Evolution with Seven Swords.

Nolahn, who paired The Possession with Hellraiser.

Dan Heaton, who paired The Ambassador with Blood Diamond.

Squasher88, who paired Bonnie & Clyde with Paper Moon.

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 Cold Light of Day

The Words
