Marathon Movies

Lists of my favorite triple features, and a few triple+ lists.

This list does not include movies that appear on my Christmas marathon list (www.listal.com/list/winter-holiday-marathons) or my Halloween marathon list (www.listal.com/list/halloween-marathon), because I don't want to take up a time slot with a movie I just watched during a holiday marathon, but may include some movies on my Holiday-Adjacent Movie Marathon (www.listal.com/list/holidayadjacent-marathons).

I am currently hosting online watch parties of these marathons every Wednesday evening starting at 7 PM Eastern time. Details at bit.ly/OnlineMovieMarathons

Oppression In The Deep South

Ralph Macchio stars in two very different movies that highlight some form of racism or oppression in the Deep South. This can be turned into a triple feature by adding another Ralph Macchio film like Karate Kid, making it a Macchio Marathon instead of an oppression marathon. Any Macchio movie can be added to make it a Macchio triple feature, although Karate Kid also touches on some racism in the form of appropriation and Orientalism in California, which is not the same as oppression in the Deep South but can keep it somewhat related.

Rom-Coms That Don't Suck

My favorite romantic comedies that don't follow some of the most toxic rom-com tropes.
(for a triple feature, skip either My Girlfriend's Boyfriend or Dostana)
Add items to section

Barbarian Marathon

For a Classic Barbarian marathon, see Conan the Barbarian, Red Sonja, and The Beastmaster.
For a Conan marathon, watch Conan The Barbarian, Conan The Destroyer, and the remake of Conan The Barbarian.

Some fun movies with members of the Brat Pack or the extended circle.

Musicals: Modern Screen Adaptations

The new era of musicals on screen in a world that has forgotten the charm of classic musicals. Now we need an explanation for why characters break into song and dance. The modern take on musicals seem to introduce an element of fantasy and absurdism to accept the music.

Bill Murray

Some of my favorite Bill Murray movies that are not included in other marathons.

Ass-Kicking Women Spy Films

Women spy films in the tradition of James Bond with a focus on action rather than pure thriller or drama.

For an epitomal triple feature, skip Salt, but for an all-English / all action triple feature, skip Nikita.

With Nikita, Atomic, & Salt you have women working for governments (so, spies in the "truest" sense; in Haywire she is only a contract asset) and all carry a similar, stylized deviation from realism (whereas Haywire is flawlessly realistic). But with Haywire, Atomic, and Salt, you have heavy action (and all English speaking).
