Saturday Double Feature: Sabotage (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.

I’ll admit that this week’s double feature was a harder one to come up with than usual, largely because I was rather uninspired by this week’s crop of new films. That’s not to say there aren’t some movies out there that I’m wanting to see – there definitely are – just nothing that immediately cause me to say “Hey, that would make a good double bill with…”. It wasn’t until I got to thinking about the actual themes of the movies that I finally was able to settle on an idea for this week.

So’ okay, let’s start with this week’s new movie, the  new Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle Sabotage.

The idea behind this movie seems to be one of “who can you trust?”, especially when members of his team start getting killed off one-by one. All right then, that got me to thinking about other “who do you trust” movies, especially where great amounts of money are involved, which immediately brought to mind the classic – and one of the best movies ever made – Humphrey Bogart-starring The Treasure of the Sierra Madre form 1959.

And looking at those two trailers together, I think yeah, that actually would probably make for a pretty good double feature.

So what do you think? Are you looking forward to or have you already seen Sabotage? Do you have any other ideas for pairing films with it? 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!
