Looking at film and television. Sometimes two very similar films come out close together, let's see which one is better...
Here's a list of 10 film duos I intend looking at. I'm starting off with films released in the same year calender year, but will expand out to films in consecutive years as time goes on. I'm also going to avoid deliberate rip-offs by companies such as Asylum who make "Mockbusters" of major films to trick audiences into see their film instead of the real thing.Below there is a poll with all 20 films on it. Ranking the pairs will determine the order I review them. Additional films will be added as after each review.
