Okay, let’s start with a quick recap of the “rules”, shall we? 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 this week the big movie to hit theaters is the latest installment in Fox’s X-Men franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, rather than feature that one this week for our double feature, I decided to go with one of the smaller films that has been in theaters for a couple of weeks now, Mom’s Night Out. Here’s the trailer for that one:
Okay, so let’s go with the concept of unexpected babysitting and its consequences, and we wind up at 1987’s Adventures in Babysitting:
And actually, that looks to me like it could be kind of a fun mind-less comedy type pairing. What do you think? Have you seen Adventures in Babysitting? Or do you have any other ideas for movies to pair with Mom’s Night Out? Leave your thoughts in the comments, along with ideas 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!
