Oh yes, sometimes those weird little quirks that your mom finds SO SO amusing, well, they are just wrong. Dad, just get a grip. Either take off in a space ship or try not talking to my friends.......
3 Movies so Dad will hide in his cave when your friends come over.
"Forbidden Planet" (1956) - Leslie Nielsen's best film, he shows great potential here for real acting. Treating the content like a natural movie script creates a tense and enjoyable foray into the unknown universe.
"The Day the Earth Stood Still" (1951) - A classic - its your mission to make sure Dad has this in his movie collection. Do not fail. A smidge cheesy but so well done.
"A Space Odyessy" (1968) - No Hal will not help you send Dad into space. While we could go on and on debating Stanley Kubrick and why "Paths of Glory" is his only really good film.....its best to say that Dad will enjoy this - its a must own movie.
