    My first one is obligatory. I hope you understand.

    The Princess Bride & Labyrinth

    Dirty Dancing & Sleeping With the Enemy
    for those times when you've done something horribly wrong, such as kill someone or cheat on your lover, or pull that tag off the mattress.

    Spirited Away & Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

    Chinatown & Memento

    A very fun idea Steve.

    Mr. Hulot’s Holiday and Gosford Park—the original and the homage.

    Crimes and Misdemeanors and Cries and Whispers—the homage and the original.

    Singin’ in the Rain and The Young Girls of Rochefort—a Gene Kelly double feature.

    L’ Atalante and L’ Avventura—two runaway women or relationship resolution (or not)
