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 new in theaters this week? Well, looks like the big opener is going to be a cautionary tale designed to make anyone who isn’t already completely terrified of that new phenomenon known as “the cloud”. That’s right, I’m talking about Sex Tape.
So where do we go to look for a film to double feature with that one? Well, fortunately, Steven Soderburg‘s 1989 directorial debut Sex, Lies, and Videotape fits in right at the edge of our 1980’s cut-off, so why not go with that? (Geez, does anybody even know what a videotape is (or was) anymore?)
So what do you think? What would you choose for a double feature with Sex Tape? 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!
