Saturday! Double Feature time!
Okay, as always, 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.
If I’m honest, I’ll admit I’m not all that thrilled about the new Matt Damon flick Downsizing. I’m sure it has good intentions and all, but really, from what I’ve seen there;s just not enough beyond the visuals of little people in a big world to draw me in.
The problem is that though I’m sure the effects are impressive, they’re really nothing that hasn’t been done before. In the 60s there was the TV show Land of the Giants, an even before that, there was The Incredible Shrinking Man. And I’m sure there were plenty of films before that that explored the theme
Then, of course, in 1989 came this movie, starring the then-popular Rick Moranis.
So what do you think? What would you choose for a double feature with Downsizing? 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!
