The perfect double feature

At times, I'll watch a movie and think it would be a perfect double feature with another film that's similar in style. For example, when I saw "Nobody's Fool" (with Paul Newman), overall it reminded me of "Beautiful Girls" for some odd reason. And just last night, I saw "The Yards" for the first time (which I enjoyed a great deal) . And I kept thinking of "Copland" while watching it. Besides sequels (which would be an obvious choice), what movies do you think would make the perfect double feature?

A Director's night would be great:

Godfather and Godfather II - Coppola

Rushmore and Royal Tenenbaums (or Bottle Rocket) - Wes Anderson

Vertigo and Rear Window (or Psycho) - Hitchcock

Alien and Black Hawk Down - Ridley Scott

Spiderman and Evil Dead - Sam Raimi

Mousehunt and Pirates of the Caribbean - Gore Verbinski

Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List - Spielberg

Goldeneye and The Mask of Zorro - Martin Campbell

Whenever I watch two movies back to back I like having two different tones. Mix a light with a quiet or dark movie. I find it to be better for me not to overlap emotions too much.

But to answer intent of question..

Fly Away Home
Winged Migration

Could also add Never Cry Wolf for a triple feature if it had a decent dvd release.

A few days after seeing Elephant I watched Targets, and it struck me that the combo would be an interesting double feature.
