skeletonjack -> What Would Your Perfect Double Bill Be? (9/12/2006 12:59:36 PM)

Last week I saw Pans Labyrinth and Nightmare Before Christmas 3-D back to back, which to me was a perfect double-bill.
What would be your perfect double-bill? No sequels to films in the same series though, eg not Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back etc

I caught one of the Stella Screenings at Somerset House in the summer - a double bill of Starship Troopers and Aliens. You really can't go wrong with either of those films in the line-up.

Yip, that sounds pretty damned good!

The French Connection and The Taking of Pelham 123 - two awesome 70's crime thrillers.

The Bourne Identity and Moonraker.




HIGHLANDER -> RE: What Would Your Perfect Double Bill Be? (9/12/2006 8:56:10 PM)

Predator and Cliffhanger. Two kick-ass action films where you can just sit back and enjoy.
If that fails there's also Lethal Weapon 2 and Die Hard.
Or even True Romance and The Last Boy Scout.
4 out of 6 of these films are produced by Joel Silver. Go figure.

Absolutely perfect!

I would actually love Spiderman 2 and Batman Begins, my favourite superhero movies.

Or maybe The Big Lebowski and Kingpin. That would rock.




/Clarence\ -> RE: What Would Your Perfect Double Bill Be? (10/12/2006 1:46:23 PM)

Cuchulainn's choices are aweseome.
I'd have to go with...

Robocop and T2:JD
or
Taxi Driver and Goodfellas.




Gothzilla -> RE: What Would Your Perfect Double Bill Be? (10/12/2006 5:27:01 PM)

How about The Crow and Enter the Dragon for a father / son sort of theme.




BobM70 -> RE: What Would Your Perfect Double Bill Be? (10/12/2006 6:27:15 PM)

I think I'll go for HARVEY (1950) and DONNIE DARKO (2003). I think you can guess the connecting theme here....

Discodez -> RE: What Would Your Perfect Double Bill Be? (17/3/2011 3:55:48 PM)

I went to a double bill at a local cinema a couple of years ago and watched "Memento" and "Vertigo" - complemented each other very well.

My own suggestions would be Donnie Darko and Twelve Monkeys if you want your mind bending a little (but not too much),

Escape to Victory and Shaolin Soccer, for pure unadulterated leave the house cheering with a massive smile on your face guilty pleasureness [:D]

Edit: (just a quick edit to say Donnie Darko theatrical cut, the directors adds nothing for me and the changes to the soundtrack were pointless)




thedirtydozenlives -> RE: What Would Your Perfect Double Bill Be? (17/3/2011 3:59:18 PM)

The original Inglorious Bastards and The Dirty Dozen

UTB -> RE: What Would Your Perfect Double Bill Be? (17/3/2011 8:46:35 PM)

Can I have a triple bill please?

Have done this on two occasions and it works so well...

No Country For Old Men
The Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada
Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia


Awesome
