Hey, it’s Saturday again, which means it’s time for another Saturday Double Feature, right? Remember, the basic idea here is to take a movie that is out in theaters now, and pair it up with another movie from the 1980s or before.. Sometimes the connection will be obvious, and sometimes it’ll be a little less so, but that’s part of the fun.
Yeah, this shouldn’t take long. For some indiscernible reason (except that the first two made money, so why not?), The Hangover 3 hits theaters this weekend. Here, go ahead and have a look:
Okay, that was actually a pretty easy one to pair up. Simply go with the concept of “what has overindulgence led me to?”, take it seriously, add in a stellar cast featuring Ray Milland, and get the great Billy Wilder to direct it, and suddenly, you have a classic: 1945’s The Lost Weekend:
Let me know what you think about this pairing or other upcoming movies you’d like to see “double featured”. Consider it, if you will, your chance to challenge me to come up with an interesting pair.
Until next time, Happy Viewing!
