Saturday Double Feature: Ender’s Game (2013) and…

Saturday on the blog means 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.

It appears the big movie opening this weekend is going to be the new adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s novel Ender’s Game.

So, looking back at space movies of the past, and especially those involving space wars, what do we come up with for an interesting double feature with that? Well, how about this one from Japan’s Toho studios? Released in 1977, (yes, the same year as another, similarly-titled American film), we have Wakusei Daisensō: Za uō in Supēsu otherwise known in English as The War in Space:

So, do you have any other ideas for pairing films with Ender’s Game? if so, let me know below. And also let me know of any 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!

    I haven’t seen Enders’ Game, but it looks so Formula that I can’t believe it’s getting decent reviews. I must be missing something. ???
