We literally owe our lives to our parents: it is our first amigoour vital guide —along with mom, of course— and the guy who smiles when you hand him that craft that you did at school for Father’s Day and that, possibly, will spend the years on a shelf so that, when looking at it, pride invades.
But a father is also someone with whom you are going to argue in life, it is inevitable, some times more than others.
Hollywood’s highest paid actors
As Father’s Day is already here, we have reviewed the film library to highlight some films, with more or less bad luck, to see with the “old man”, even if we are sulking.
Today, at Hobby Consolas, we review eight movies to watch with our father on Father’s Day, we get along badly or well with him.
The movies we are going to talk about are
Road to Perdition
One of the unwritten oaths of a father to his son is to maintain innocence in the child’s gaze for as long as humanly possible.
Road to Perditionthe gangster jewel of Sam Mendestakes us back to the days of Prohibition to show us what happens when that is not possible.
Tom HanksPaul Newman, Jude Law, Daniel Craig y Tyler Hoechlin They make up the main cast of this film noir masterpiece where a father’s loyalty will be put to the test.
But what deserves loyalty more than one’s family, especially our children?
Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
This is a very personal recommendation, and not just for having one of the most iconic moments in movie history.
Star Wars Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back sets the stage for a tragic story to Anakin Skywalkeralthough it would take a few years to see the light.
However, if we combine it with Return of the Jedi, we get a tremendously powerful redemption bow. If you and your first friend are in bad shape, it’s a good idea to “save” each other.
field of dreams
Along with cinema, traditionally, sport has been one of the threads that have linked parents and children for decades.
Hollywood has sold us a thousand times the typical image of going out with the kids to “throw some balls”: that classic scene with the glove and the baseball.
field of dreams is one of those movies that uses sports to connect one father with many other fathers thanks to the baseball field he builds in a cornfield.
As a gift, you have Kevin Costner: If you’re not convinced there, he was the “father” of Clark Kent in Man of Steel. A guy capable of raising Superman, he deserves our respects.
Catch Me If You Can
A parent’s influence helps define us for good as well as bad. Steven Spielberg got it right in Catch Me If You Can.
In the 2002 film, Christopher Walken plays Frank Abagnale Sr., the father of the eponymous character from Leonardo DiCaprio.
But this sweetheart only taught his son tricks that led him down the path that would eventually land him in prison, waiting for another movie dad, Tom Hanks, to save him.
A place to dream
Based on a true story, although changing the English countryside for the fields of California, A place to dream centers on the efforts of a widowed father to change his life together with his children.
The movie Cameron Crowe starring Matt Damon he sees a young widower move to the country and buy a dilapidated zoo.
With the help of her children and zoo workers, Benjamin He hopes to build the business and make it profitable, while taking care of the animals that live in it.
Although there are two recommended gangster movies on the list for Father’s Day, do not offend, it is bad.
The Godfather is a must see film that focuses heavily on one’s own blood family within the Mafia crime family.
The fight for the favor of don Vito Corleone to become his successor is the core of the movie Francis Ford Coppola.
Naturally, sometimes the family business isn’t as glamorous as it was when our father ran it.
Hook: Captain Hook
Let’s see her with our father or with our son, Hook: Captain Hook it stages the leap in which we lose our natural innocence and become responsible adults, with bills, ulcers, and the desire to sleep at all hours.
Robin Williams he plays a very grown up Peter Pan who has come to forget who he really is. Not even the kidnapping of his children ends up refreshing his memories.
But the love he professes for the little ones will take him back to Neverland, where he will reconnect with his past. bangarang!
Indiana Jones and the last crusade
If you decide to continue the family business, your father may always be there to show you that he is one step ahead of you at all times.
Sean Connery played Henry Jones in the iconic Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, where the good old Harrison Ford discovered that, like father, like son.
In addition to the essential tandem that they formed in the film, that chemistry is what, let’s not deny it, many of us have with our parents: a complicated relationship, based on affection.
He Father’s day It is a perfect occasion to bury the hatchet if we are close to our “old man”. Life is too short to be sullen, so a good movie and let him pay for the popcorn.
