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 what’s out this week? Well, the big box office draw is obviously Seth MacFarlane‘s A Million Ways To Die in the West:
And of course, if you’re anything like me, from the moment the first trailer for the movie hit, there was one very obvious double feature pairing, and yep, that’s the one I’m going with today. The year was 1974, and Mel Brooks unleashed his classic western parody Blazing Saddles on unsuspecting audiences across the nation:
So what do you think? Could A Million Ways… be this generation’s Blazing Saddles? Does it need to be? Or can you think of a better pairing for the new flick? 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!
