Good Double/Triple Features - Page 3

post #101 of 364
Poltergeist and ET

I did this one the other day after seeing KOTCS because I wanted to see a good Spielberg flick to wash out the bad taste. Even though Poltergeist technically isn't Spielberg, we all know it actually is.

You get to see both of Spielberg's views on suburbia: one where your dreams are realized (ET), and the other where your greatest fears are (Poltergeist). They even seem like they take place in the same neighborhood.

Room 1408/The Shining
post #105 of 364
I usually try to make double feature suggestions at the end of my positive reviews. I wish I had more brave, movie loving friends, because I would do these every weekend. I have an exhusting dream weekend of all my favourite horror/sci-fi remakes in release order: Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Thing, The Fly, The Blob, Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Hills Have Eyes. Or perhaps just The Fly, The Blob and The Thing. Or maybe Night and Dawn. Or maybe, just maybe all of these films - original on Friday night, remakes on Saturday night.

Recently I watched the French horror film Inside, and was reminded great of the other French pregnancy horror film Baby Blood.

You'd be a piss-poor horror geek if you didn't attempt some form of this marathon at least once! (However, the problem with the remake-a-thon is, after Invasion, The Thing, & The Fly--the Blob( or Invaders From Mars) really come off poor.)

Just finished watching Black Sunday, and it gave me the urge to revisit Munich.

That's why you start with the good, and end with the heavy-hitters.

For a cartoony sea shanty town musical double feature (produced by the House of Mouse) throw in PETE'S DRAGON, followed by Altman's POPEYE. My 5 year old daughter ate it up.
post #111 of 364
The Rocketeer, The Phantom, The Shadow
Enter the Dragon, Blood Sport, Mortal Kombat
The Godfather, The Godfather Part II (I know cliche, but they go too damn well together)
The Godfather Part II, Heat
Iron Man, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Sherpa episode from Entourage
Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, Friday the 13th (the new one)
Commando, Predator, Die Hard (if this is done again, we might add Harry Potter 6 to this)
Playing TMNT2: The Arcade Game, TMNT4: Turtles in Time (yes we ordered pizza, and it was via MAME so 4 players via usb controllers)

Grosse Point Blank and Out of Sight

My wife and I just had our third annual Thanksgiving Movie Marathon, and Sunday's films all involved pregnancy: Kill Bill (actually chosen in memory of David Carradine), Juno, and Knocked Up. Great way to end the holiday.
post #123 of 364
THE KILLER and CITY ON FIRE:
Chow Yun-Fat as a criminal and Danny Lee as a cop. Danny Lee as a criminal and Chow Yun-Fat as a cop. In either film, the Hong Kong equivalent of Pacino & De Niro for hard-assed gravitas.

THE CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO/ONCE A THIEF/HUDSON HAWK:
Action-comedies about foreign (Japanese, Chinese, American) cat burglars in Europe. Two of them feature a hero using a skateboard to roll out of a tricky situation. All have action setpieces in castles.

Satan's Blade/Don't Go In the Woods...Alone!

post #125 of 364
Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, and Muppets Take Manhattan are all on Instantwatch. I recently did Muppets/Dark Crystal, but Dark Crystal/Labyrinth probably would have been a better fit.
post #126 of 364

Robocop and Iron Man

The Warriors and Assault on Precinct 13

Goodfellas and The Departed

Obvious, but great. I did this in a span of a few days, but I'm sure a double/triple feature would be equally good.

I went to the video store with my mom when I was about eleven or twelve years old. My choice was TCM2 and hers was Blue Velvet, both were new releases at the time I think. Now that was a great fucking double feature.

Lol. Kind of a joke, but it works!.

Both films have a Christmas setting and feature suicidal protagonists who find hope and redemption thru the power of friendship and family.

Also, pushing it perhaps, but both Bailey and Riggs are teamed up with a partner who is "too old for this shit".

Recently realized that Jailhouse Rock and A Face In The Crowd are eerily similar in certain ways, and would play well together.

That's priceless - I love it!

GoodFellas and Boogie Nights

Both somewhat fond remembrances of a way of life eventually ruined by changing times and, in no small part, the influence of drugs.
