    Yes, I'm bored again. [​IMG]
    I was perusing my DVD collection and it occurred to me that Blade Runner and A.I. would make an interesting double-feature with their shared themes of artifically-created life seeking meaning and humanity.
    What can you come up with?

    Well, Steve, that's one double bill I hope I never have to sit through. [​IMG]
    I've always thought Persona and Thelma and Louise would make a cool double bill. [​IMG]

    T2 and The Matrix make a good "evil machines destroying humanity" pairing.

    They seem an obvious choice, but Fight Club and Seven go well together.
    If you're in the mood for art films, go with The Cannonball Run and Cannonball Run 2. [​IMG]
    How about The Beastmaster and The Sword and the Sorcerer? The Sting and Diggstown! Oooh oooh! The Adventures of Baron Munchausen and Time Bandits!

    Steeve came up with some great pics!
    My nomination goes to two movies that I accidently watched back to back, not even knowing that they complemented each other so perfectly:
    Double Indemnity
    and
    The Man Who Wasn't There
    In that order!

    I'd say Armageddon & Deep Impact. Both were released when Hollywood was in disaster mode it seems.
    The Shawshank Redemption & The Green Mile fit pretty good as well.

    Nashville & Boogie Nights - two films that examine America in the 70s by focusing on a particular group in the entertainment industry. One by Altman, the other by an Altman disciple. One from a contemporary perspective, the other looking back two decades.
    As soon as I get my new RPTV, I'm doing this one!!

    That's an obtuse one, to be sure.

    In both films, the principal character is driven to extremes by the toxins of society. Something like that anyway. I'm sure someone else could word it better.

    Both movies also have an important "talking to the mirror" scene.
