DOUBLE FEATURE FRIDAY #2.16

by

Welcome to the FINAL 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 final decision.

Next week we’ll tally the results from this weeks entries before awarding a sexy prize – an item of your choice from the Man, I Love Films store – to the highest ranked player. After that the competition will take a bit of a break while I do some travelling, before returning some time during November.

But before we go any further, let’s take a look at who picked up points last week:

ROUND 15 WINNERS:

Dan Heaton, who paired The Cold Light of Day with Taken.

Andy Hart, who paired The Words with Secret Window and Bachelorette with Young Adult.

Nolahn, who paired Girl Model with Miss Sarajevo and A Prophet with The Godfather.

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 Master

Resident Evil: Retribution

Finding Nemo 3D

Arbitrage

Bonus: Trash Humpers
