Thread: Film Compatibility Test: Nominations

  1. #1

    Film Compatibility Test: Nominations

    You know how Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction claims that there are only two types of people, those who like Elvis or those who like The Beatles? Well, I wanted to take that idea and use it to test film compatibility for the people on this site.

    What I want is to make a list of "X vs Y" comparisons, then set up a Google Survey and get you all to answer it and then figure out whose tastes are most similar to each other.

    I was going to make the list myself, but I thought I'd get your ideas and use them in instead. We want to have pairs that are connected somehow and that are equally likely to have defenders on both sides. I was thinking things like:

    Star Wars vs. Marvel
    John Carpenter vs. Wes Craven
    Gremlins vs. Gremlins 2
    Bette Davis vs. Jean Crawford
    Die Hard series vs Lethal Weapon series

    etc.


    Give me enough ideas, and I'll make it happen!

    Star Wars/Marvel - I dig both
    Neither sticks out
    I enjoy both.
    Haven't seen enough to make a preference

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havenít entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Co-signed. This was the first one I thought of. Do you prefer the Alien franchise horror aspects or action/war film aspects.


    Throw Momma From The Train vs. Stop! or My Mom Will Shoot
    Tombstone vs. Wyatt Earp (I dare anybody to say Wyatt Earp)
    Sex and the City vs. Deliverance
    The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert vs. To Wong Foo: Thanks For Everything, Julie Numar
    Charlie Chaplin vs. Buster Keaton

    Obviously it's Solaris, Scarface, and Psycho, respectively. But knowing MC I don't expect to go unchallenged.

    Just because...
    Devi (Satyajit Ray, 1960) mild
    The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun (Wes Anderson, 2021) warm
    High Sierra (Raoul Walsh, 1941) mild

    The last book I read was...
    The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne BrontŽ
