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.
For some reason it seems that God is a big-time presence in the multiplexes this year, from films like God Is Not Dead and Son of God to Noah (which, okay, substitutes “The Creator” for “God”, but still… And this week, just in time for Easter, we get Heaven Is For Real.
It’s kind of beyond the range of this feature to really comment on whether I agree with any of these films varying takes on heaven amd/or God, so I won’t. Instead, I’ll simply note that according to this 1976 Warren Beatty feature, whatever the case may be, Heaven Can Wait.
So what do you think? Are you looking forward to or have you already seen Heaven is fir Real? 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!
