10.Burke & Hare
William Burke and William Hare are grave robbers in the nineteenth century Edinburgh who murder people. A lot of invented ways that they kill people and they are providing the dead bodies to a medical school. Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis really capture each other personalities and work really well together, these two should star in more films together.
Jasper and Horace aka Cruella henchmen who capture the puppies and those two do whatever Cruella say and do everything by the book, despite they are bumbling and making mistakes along the way. Hugh Lawrie and Mark Williams are spot on and with comic timing and got really good chemistry together.
8.Scooby Doo (2002)
Norville “Shaggy” Rogers and Scooby Doo are best friend since childhood and they join into a group named Mystery Ince and solving strange cases involving supernatural. The only thing is they scare of everything and eating a lot of food in the process. Matthew Lillard and a CGI Scooby Doo work really well and providing the comedy moment and it just work.
Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde are an unlikely team as technically a fox and a rabbit never get on, but they do as Judy always wished for being a police officer in a big city and been living on a farm, whereas with Nick he is a streetwise and a bit of a comedian who is being a sly with an hidden agenda. These two works really well and the voice casting is superb and spot on with Jason Bateman and Ginnifer Goodwin as they both have plaudit with their banter.
6.The Curse Of The Were – Rabbit
Wallace and his loyal dog, Gromit who worked together as a pest – control in this feature length outing and they both lived with each other. These two got something special in general and their chemistry just work and it just reminded me with an amazing guy who lived in Stalybridge and we just got the same kind of a friendship like with Wallace and Gromit.
5.Bridge Of Spies
An American insurance lawyer James B Donovan which he’s a family man is recruited from his prestigious law firm to defend accused Soviet spy Rudolf Abel. A loner European man living in the US, Rudolph Abel is arrested as a Russian spy and is sentenced to 30 years in jail and he try to negotiation in a potential prisoner swap. Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance are convincing and spot on in this well-crafted film as they both acted together on screen to make this film watchable.
Harry and Marv are the two bumbling burglars who going to steal Christmas presents in the neighbourhood especially at Kevin McCallister house. Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci made the film extra special and especially their comic timing is spot on, with their own version of Morcombe and Wise type of chemistry and it just work very easily and they are very likeable.
From the moment these two mismatched monsters met, they couldn’t stand each other. This movie unlocks the door to how Mike and Sully overcame their differences and became the best of friends. The voice casting of John Goodman and Billy Crystal is certainly top notch and their friendship is the key for both films and that what they make it memorable.
A cowboy doll and an action figure started an unlikely friendship and becoming best friends, plus both of them wanted to be a leader and lead other toys and help them along their ways. I can connect with these two because it like me and a lad who live in Marple becoming friends and actually getting to know him along our journey. The voice cast is excellent.
1.Big Hero 6
The special bond develops between plus – sized inflatable robot Baymax, and prodigy Hiro Hamada. They both have to save the world and becoming really close and both of them have mutual and love each other and becoming companion, This partly reminded of me and my brother friendship/relationship who always hug me and being there for me and becoming close. The vocal of these characters are superb and bringing the comic timing to this film and generally heartfelt.
One thought on “Article: Top 10 Duos In Films”
Interesting selection Mark, villains as well as heroes. Here’s some more that I would have included:
The Blues Brothers, even if you don’t like blues music one of the great partnerships.
Thelma and Louise.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting – Robert Redford and Paul Newman proved to be a great double act.
