Saturday Double Feature: The Croods (2013) and…

So here we are: Saturday and time for another Double Feature. Once again the basic idea is to take a movie that is out in theaters now, and pair it up with another movie from the 1980s or before for a Saturday Double Feature. Sometimes the connection will be obvious, and sometimes it’ll be a little less so, but that’s part of the fun.

This week, for the recent film, I decided to go with the animated feature The Croods which opened in theaters yesterday.

Again, as always, there were a lot of options on movies to pair it up with, from Willis O’Brien‘s The Lost World from 1925 since it’s the first real animated dinosaur feature

to Hammer’s When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth,

but in the end, I decided to go with something a bit more lighthearted (or perhaps lightheaded?). So, from 1981 I give you Ringo Starr (yes, that Ringo Starr) and Barbara Bach in Caveman:

So what do you think? What are your ideas for movies that would go well with The Croods?  And don’t forget to pass along any ideas about other new releases that you’d like to see paired up with something from the past. Just hit that comment button below. I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time, Happy Viewing!
