Saturday Double Feature: Her (2014) 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.

This week sees the wide opening of one of the most anticipated films of the new year, the Joaquin Phoenix starring Her.

Of course, there’s really only one way to go with this one… well, actually, that’s not true, this odd love story provides lots of different angles to choose from for a double feature pairing, but just for the fun of it, I decided that I’d really like to see a marquee that reads “Playing Today: SHE and HER”.

Yep, the “SHE” part of that would be the 1965 Hammer film starring Ursula Andress and John Richardson

Yeah, maybe not the most obvious choice in the world, after all, but there you go. And hey, beyond just the title similarity, one could say they both involve very strange love stories, so there is that.

Anyway, what do you think? Do you have any other ideas for pairing films with Her? 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!
