Blogathon: Double Feature Theater

Double Feature Theater

Marc over at Go, See, Talk had a wonderful idea for a blogathon, which kicked off last weekend. I am a little late to this party, but after seeing everyone’s brilliant posts I had to join in. The idea is simple — you are in charge of a movie theater, and it is your duty to come up with a double feature for every day of the week. The only exception is on Sunday, which is a triple feature. I had a blast brainstorming for this blogathon, and I feel pretty good about some of these selections. Let’s get this started!

    Have to say I really like the Office theme; pretty smart:) But your Fear and Loathing/Enter the Void is too much psychedelic cinema for me:) Still haven’t seen Troll 2 or The Room but somehow I think I’m better for it…but I highly agree with your encouraged drinking:P

      Haha, I can’t exactly say Troll 2 and The Room are required viewing, but they are highly entertaining — especially when drinks are consumed.

    it’s funny, your tagline for wednesday “why the hell not?” is kinda what you think when you see that artwork for secretary!

    cool list, i saw enter the void mentioned somewhere else recently. i think i may have to see it at some point but a double feature?! small doses only for this viewer.

    Great list matey!! (gutted I missed the boat tbh)

      Thanks, man! I can’t say I blame ya for skipping out on Saturday, but I think it would be a lot of fun. Nothing like seeing terrible movies with a full crowd.
