Doubling up on Mel Brooks is always fun. I like Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs.

Great idea. Here's hoping it can wash the stench of Spaceballs: The Cartoon from my memory.

That's a cool one. Brotherhood of the Wolf would also go nicely with Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning.

Also:

Silver Hawk and Aeon Flux.

If you can handle it.

Ravenous also plays well with Ginger Snaps: The Beginning.

Wow, you guys have come up with some great pairings.

Here is one pairing I actually saw as a double feature in a theater:

The Empire Strikes Back and Dragonslayer

It was quite a double bill.

Some ideas:

"The Dark Knight" and "Dark City"

"2001: A Space Oddysey" and "Dark Star"

"Silent Running" and "Being There"

"The Wizard of Oz" and "Time Bandits"

"Beetlejuice" and "Metallica: Some Kind of Monster"

"Cloverfield" and "The Terminator"

"RockNRolla" and "Annie Hall"

I could go on and on with this for some reason . . .
Look! Even Steve is throwing chocolate snowballs . . . oh . . .

Postby so sorry on Tue Mar 23, 2010 12:41 pm

Wasn't sure where else to put this...

So Sunday afternoon I amazingly had the house to myself for about 3 hours. Instead of going outside and enjoying the unseasonably good weather or working on some house project, I plunked my ass down on the couch and starting channel surfing...and ended up watching Schindler's List from beginning to end. God damn that is one fine fucking movie, and practically impossible to turn off. If you don't cry at least 3 or 4 times watching that, you have a heart of stone.

So later on in the night, after I've put the kids and wife to bed, there I sat again on the couch, channel surfing. I decided I needed something a bit more lighthearted to balance out what I put my eyeballs thru earlier: so I landed on Showgirls, which I watched from beginning to end. God damn that is one fine fucking movie, and practically impossible to turn off. If you don't jerk off at least 3 to 4 times watching that, you have a heart of stone.

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT's all coming out the woodwork now isn't it. A fan base for showgirls!!!!!!

This should be in the 'movies you should be ashamed to love', but honestly, I love it too. I love the way the nakedness disappears before your very eyes and you end up watching a telenovela. You think the film is just tastless nakedness but beneath it all, it has a deeper, more sensitive, South American soap drama going on, and because you've already so far into the film before realising it, by damned hell, you're gonna finish it!!!!

'Dougal and the Blue Cat' and 'A Clockwork Orange'.
a, Both 1971.
b, Cinema owners used to use D+TBC on the cinema hoardings to cover the fact that they were secretly showing ACO.
c, 'Buxton the Cat' sounds remarkably like MacDowall/Alex.
I intend to get these screened together at the Sheffield Showroom once the new remastered DVD of D+TBC is released at the beginning of November. :wink:

"Legend" followed by "Kung Fu Hustle"

"Planet of the Apes" followed by "The Wizard of Oz"

"le Samurai" followed by.......ok, i could go all French and same fatalistic theme with "The Professional"....OR something even more contrasting to the quiet austere nature of "le Samurai" like "Die Hard"...yeah, that would be cool, "le Samurai" followed by "Die Hard"

Italian Horrors

Mario Bava's first proper film The Mask of Satan & Dario Argento's Phenomena starring a disturbingly pretty fifteen year old Jennifer Connelly.

Easy, because Monster Squad is a classic and The Goonies is terrible. I don't get the love for Goonies at all, in fact I strongly recall the palpable sense of disappointment upon leaving the cinema.
The Monster Squad and 'House Of Frankenstein' would be more my choice. Definitely a classic Universal.
