Last night was date night at my house, with a Chrimmus double feature of ‘Die Hard’ and ‘Nightbreed’, for an 80s/90s one-two punch to while away a couple of hours.  Aside from the revelation that Joss Whedon’s ‘Buffy’ was clearly influenced by ‘Nightbreed’, there wasn’t much new information to be imparted, but the two films blended together pretty well.  Of course, with only a couple of years between them, there are bound to be parallels (the legendary zeitgeist at work), but it got me to thinking about what other unlikely pairings would make for a great double-bill, leading to today’s grindhouse query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would setup Disney’s secret remake double-flick, with ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’ and ‘The Black Hole,’ asking: What two movies would you combine to make the perfect double feature?
