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.
So I hear there’s some sort of superhero movie that’s getting a lot of buzz this week, but instead of that one (which I’m sure we’ll get to eventually) I thought I’d instead see about pairing something up with the other big Hollywood film opening this week, the time-travel rom-com About Time:
Again, this is one of those movies that provides for a fairly obvious pairing, but Groundhog Day actually didn’t come out until 1993 so it falls outside of our 1980’s or before parameters. So instead, let’s go all the way back to 1980, which saw Christopher Reeve portray a very different time traveler in the justifiably classic Somewhere in Time
Hey, guys, let’s be honest – which of us wouldn’t find a way to go back in time if we knew Jane Seymour was waiting there for us?
Any other ideas for pairing films with About Time? 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!
