Dad, Films I Know You've Seen

My dad apparently gave a link to my blog to a previous co-worker the other day. My dad, not a reader of the blog, decided to give it a read and mentioned that he had not heard or seen any of the movies my blog recent talked about.

In fact, he said it really didn't interest him.

Sure, with recent post about David Lean's Summertime and the documentary Burma VJ, I can understand why he might skip over those post unfamiliar with the films and projects.

So I thought I would put together a list of films I have watched with my dad that have been released this past decade.

I'm sure I'm missing some, but I've come up with 32 films, not to mention TV shows like the entire Mad Men series.

American Outlaws
The Aviator
The Big Bounce
Blades of Glory
Cast Away
Catch Me if You Can
The Cove
Deck the Halls
Die Fälscher (The Counterfeiters)
The Family Man
Fun With Dick & Jane
Hearts in Atlantis
The Manchurian Candidate (2004)
Miss Congeniality
Miss Pettigrew Lives for A Day
Mona Lisa Smile
Nim's Island
The Patriot
Pearl Harbor
The Perfect Storm
The Santa Clause 2
Sherlock Holmes
The Spiderwick Chronicles
Spy Kids
Talladega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby
The Village

So, Dad, which one of these films would you like me to blog about?

Parents are like that, my mother describes my movie tastes as "strange" to her friends.

Strangely, I have never watched a movie with my dad. That sounds...weird.

I'm not your dad, but I'm requesting, The Aviator :)

My family never reads my blog, R.C. In fact, they only mention it when telling others about my "odd" tastes. (sigh)

Nice... I thought of a few other movies that we watched with Dad... Alvin & The Chipmunks, Semi-Pro, The Cove, Route 66 (still in process), and I'm sure there are even a few more.

@ehome, I've never see Alvin, so that can't be the case...I listed the Cove, and ughhh. Semi-Pro, you are correct, how did I forget that horrible movie - and the Route 66 documentary hardly counts, plus we haven't finished the 75 disk collection :-)

Yeah, I think Dad and I watched Alvin while you all were doing a puzzle. However, it probably seems as though you were watching it because the volume was SO loud.
