Father’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to spend it with your Dad than having a fun movie night. We know most Dads are hard to shop for, so why not skip the holiday crowds at the store and do something exciting and meaningful with him. So grab the popcorn, and choose from any of the following movie picks and enjoy the quality time with your Dad this year.
1. If your Dad is a real “man’s man” and enjoys a good action flick, why not try renting The Expendables. I recently watched this movie with my own Dad and not only did it hold his attention, but he laughed as well. The Expendables provides old school action with a dash of humor, and anyone who enjoys car chases and seeing the good guys finish first will have fun watching this movie. It has everything a guy could want, including over the top action scenes. This one is sure to make you feel like your living in the 80’s all over again.
2. If your Dad is a sci-fi/fantasy movie junkie, then try renting any one of the Lord of the Rings or Hobbit movies. These movies include a mostly male cast with lots of fight scenes and special effects to keep your Dad entertained. This movie is more for the man who enjoys a movie with a tinge of philosophy and life lessons to learn, while weaving a good storyline in with the action.
3. For the sports enthusiast Father who also loves a “feel good” movie, try renting Miracle with Kurt Russell. The movie chronicles the 1980 US Olympic Hockey team and their underdog attempt at victory against the mighty Soviet team. A university coach leads the team and utilizes unorthodox methods in an attempt to win against the Soviets in the Olympics. It is a true, triumphant story of perseverance and belief in the human spirit that anything is possible when people work together and never give up on a dream. This movie is sure to leave both you and your Dad feeling nostalgic and elated.
4. Finally, a movie that is for the Dad who is both an action and history buff, go out and rent The Patriot. This movie will leave you on the edge of your seat, hoping for victory, despite knowing the outcome of history. It is set during the Revolutionary War era of America, and the main character played by Mel Gibson, is pulled into the war, against his wishes, after a fateful encounter with a British commander. It is a moving story of heartache, triumph, love, and loss. There are scenes that are graphic in nature, so take caution and review the content thoroughly before renting this movie.
So there you have a must see movie list to share with your Dad this Father’s Day. So rent a movie or two or four, grab the snacks, and settle in for the night and have fun with your Dad and the entire family this holiday.
