    This weekend I stumbled across a terrific double-feature I made myself. It might not be an original pairing, but I loved watching these films back-to-back:

    The Manhattan Project and Real Genius.


    What else have you guys discovered makes for great pairings? Not obvious stuff that involves a film and its sequel, or its remake. More inspired pairings is what I'm looking for. Thanks,

    After watching Thirteen Days last night, I thought JFK would make a natural double feature with it, especially since my (Swedish) wife asked how the US would've been different if Kennedy wasn't assassinated.

    A Clockwork Orange and Natural Born Killers (make sure to keep plenty of eye moistener and a vomit receptacle ready)
    Casablanca and Play It Again, Sam (duh!)
    Ben-Hur and The Celluloid Closet (ducks projectile from Seth Paxton [​IMG] )
    American Movie and Storytelling
    or
    American Movie and Ed Wood
    Dr. Strangelove... and Fail-Safe (both terrific, but VERY different takes on the same subject matter. Come to think of it, either would be a good double-bill companion to Thirteen Days)

    Or maybe pair them like the "Before & After" clue on "Wheel of Fortune":


    MAJOR LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN
    A FEW GOOD MEN OF HONOR
    A CLOCKWORK ORANGE COUNTY
    EVIL DEAD ZONE
    AMERICAN BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
    DIRTY HARRY POTTER



    ...You get the idea.
