What two movies do you enjoy watching back-to-back? I think Goodfellas and Casino go well together.

Comedy Night: Super Troopers and Big Lebowski

Best Original / Remake Comparison: Dawn of the Dead 1978 / 2004

Weirdest Pairing that Works: Grave of the Fireflies / My Neighbor Totoro (actually how it was shown in theaters originally, and there's a reason)

Shock and Awe: Martyrs / Requiem for a Dream (watch at your own risk)

Get ANGRY: Taxi Driver / Falling Down

Given enough time, I could go on all day!

Thanks for the input! I know what you mean about going on all day, and that's why I really love Filmcrave. Hubby is glad that I don't talk movie "nonsense" with him as much as I used to. I'll have to try these movie pairs out. 06/17/2011

I was going to suggest Defiance with Daniel Craig among many talented others and The Way Back with Ed Harris, Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess. Both of which films I love -- because they show the strength of the human spirit -- but that could be a long, rather challenging watch for a lot of people.

Maybe for something more exotic, out of the ordinary and more fun to take in: Harold and Maude with Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon along with The Stunt Man with Peter O'Toole, Barbara Hershey Steve Railsback.

I've been looking at the pairings suggested by other members and find them to be interesting...

And I vividly remember seeing Grave of the Fireflies -- I don't know how anyone would ever forget it having seen it -- but for some reason the art-house that showed it here, chose play it with a different film -- I think it might have been Dodes'ka-den -- which has a very interesting story line and story to the film itself involving Akira Kurosawa.

So why was it shown with My Neighbor Totoro, Tarken?

Oh, and I just thought of another pairing, one dark and serious, one light and not so serious, on the same basic subject: The Baader Meinhof Complex and Was tun, wenn's brennt?

I truly loved the 2nd of those two (Was tun, wenn's brent?) But then, I'm a child of the 60's...
