    Just about every year or two, a couple of movies come out that are very similiar to each other whether they have the same premise or deal with the same concept. These are some of those types of movie pairs that I can think of right now, as well as which movie I preferred. Add your own and/or say which of the following movie pairs you liked.

    1993, 1994 - Tombstone and Wyatt Earp : Tombstone
    1998 - Armageddon and Deep Impact : Deep Impact
    1998 - The Thin Red Line and Saving Private Ryan : Saving Private Ryan
    1998 - Antz and A Bug's Life : Don't remember or care
    2003, 2004 - Finding Nemo and Shark Tale : Finding Nemo
    2004, 2005 - Ray and Walk the Line : Tie.
    2006 - Flight 93 and World Trade Center : Haven't seen either yet.
    2006 - The Illusionist and The Prestige : ?????

    1993, 1994 - Tombstone and Wyatt Earp : Tombstone is a great movie!
    1998 - Antz and A Bug's Life: Bug's Life, Antz is boring
    2003, 2004 - Finding Nemo and Shark Tale : Finding Nemo, Shark Tale was lame

    1998 - Antz and A Bug's Life

    I loved "A Bugs Life" sooooo much, I saw it in the theater like 5 time, but I hated "Antz". :)

    Tombstone
    Deep Impact
    Both "The Thin Red Line" and "Saving Private Ryan" were awesome
    Bug's Life
    Ray and Walk the Line are both great
    Haven't seen either
    Same as above

    And here's another one. I forget the years, but they were released pretty close to each other. At most one year difference in their release dates, methinks.

    Volcano and Dante's Peak

    1989: Valmont / Dangerous Liaisons - both are pretty good!
    1996: Independence Day / Mars Attacks! - both are cool, both have flaws.
    1997: Volcano / Dante's Peak - both suck.
    1999: The Matrix / eXistenZ / The 13th Floor - in that order.
    2000: Mission to Mars / Red Planet - HATED MtM, Red Planet was dumb but okay...
    2003/2005: Seabiscuit / Cinderella Man - I liked both.


    haven't seen yet:

    2005/2006: Capote / Infamous
    2005/2006: Sky High / Zoom
    2005: Cheaper By the Dozen / Yours, Mine and Ours

    Good adds, Riven and Obsidian. Thanks. I'm fascinated when this sort of thing happens with movies.

    Beer League and Beerfest is another pair, neither of which I care to see. I like beer - drinking it, not watching a movie about it.

    2005/2006: Sky High / Zoom- Sky High is far superior. It has better cast of characters, and GAWD the villian was hot.
    2005: Cheaper By the Dozen / Yours, Mine and Ours. Both are not very good, but Cheaper by the Dozen is millions of miles above YMO.

    ...So I'm curious, did anyone like, watch The Thin Red Line, or did they turn it off after 10 minutes because there wasn't a massive slaughter like in SPR?

    I believe both the Illusionist and the Prestige will be amazing. I liked Deep Impact, but wasn't too fond of Armageddon. The whole feel of the movie was too....Michael Bay.

    I dunno, Flightplan really wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Maybe because I was expecting a terrible flick, but the little girl was awesome the way she appeared to be half dead. Plus, she said she's gonna do Playboy when she's of age. Okay, she didn't, but I'd encourage her to, it's the only way. Also, Jodie Foster is a lesbian, and lesbians who build planes are fantasmic. Then again, I'm sexually attracted to Cillian Murphy and whatshername in the seat next to him (who should've been Lois Lane, but whatever) so I guess it's a toss up. Neither film was really that great.
