As always happens with subjective matches, there are a number of alternative matches that are legitimate. So just keep going till you've used everything.

As far as I can tell, we have two possible matches for Cabin in the Woods - Camp and Forest.

SO, may I suggest this....


11. BENJI directed by Joe CAMP, goes with 72. THE CABIN IN THE WOODS

42. WAITING TO EXHALE directed by FOREST Whitaker, goes with 58. GREEN Pastures

Actually, Little Children was directed by Todd Field and that goes with Green Pastures.

87. is probably APOCALYPTO, directed by Mel Gibson.

Some errata:

F. Gary Gray can't go with Anatomy of a Murder because that uses Gray as a proper noun. He really goes with Black and White in Color. Which means James Ivory has to go with The Elephant Man.

A flute doesn't have a reed.

I think you've got a couple mixed up here.

A Room with a view (James Ivory) goes with Black and White in Color
Straight Outta Compton (F. Gary Gray) goes with Anatomy of a Murder.

One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness, and pain. Eventually, she died. However, her father, the King, always knew that the Princess' soul would return, perhaps in another body, in another place, at another time. And he would wait for her, until he drew his last breath, until the world stopped turning.”

The Brave One refers to the bull in the movie, so that would match with Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth).

This could be a match. One of the major cruise lines is Holland America, so we could match Savage Steve Holland (Better Off Dead) with Cruising.

“Shine” directed by Scott Hicks, goes with “The Beverly Hillbillies.”

Some films have to match Forest Whitaker and Berry Gordy (Mahogany).
