So here we are: Saturday again 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.
Harmony Korine‘s newest flick, Spring Breakers opened wide this past week, so I figured it was ripe for pairing with a past flick, and actually, the choice turned out to be pretty easy. Ok, first off, let’s take a look at the trailer for the new movie:
So, what to pair that up with? Actually, when I sat down to think about it, the choice was pretty easy. Yep, it’s “the film that started it all”, starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, and featuring music by Dick Dale, it has to be 1963’s Beach Party:
So what do you think? What would you pair up with Spring Breakers? I’m sure there are plenty of other ones. 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!
