...with this list of Unlikely Double Features, courtesy of C. Martin Croker of Arglebargle!

Arglebargle! is chock-full of interesting posts on movies, comic books, animation, you name it. Here, Mr. Croker presents “...a list of Double-Feature Movies that aren’t sequels, [yet] have enough in common that if you watch them back to back you get an enhanced perception (or at least more out) of both.”

Just a few examples:
  • Where The Buffalo Roam paired with Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas.

    One, a movie about Hunter S. Thompson; the other, based on his eponymous novel. Bill Murray vs. Johnny Depp.

  • The Last Man On Earth paired with The Omega Man.

    Both films based on Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend, a third movie version of which is set to come out in the next few weeks.
Too obvious? How ’bout these...
  • King Kong (1976) paired with The Big Lebowski.

  • The Magnificent Seven paired with Westworld.
There’s lots more. Some of the pairings are natural at first glance, others less so...but they all make sense.

Read it all.
