>tfw dad always wanted to join the air force but couldn't become a pilot because of a prior motorcycle accident
>he always watches top gun when it comes on and probably fantasies wishing it was him
I have no idea why...
I don't know why though, not that it's a bad movie.
I saw the entire trilogy with him in the cinema ;_;
Among many others, but this one comes to mind
Fuck my dad he didn't raise me but here are my grandpa's top five who had balls enough to raise me. RIP gramps.
Basically any movie with these top 5 actors
1. Jimmy Stewart (Shenandoah in partic.)
2. John Wayne (The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance in partic.)
3. Charles Bronson (Once Upon a Time in the West in part.)
4. Clint Eastwood (Sudden Impact in part.)
5. Lee Marvin (The Dirty Dozen in part.)
I will never understand old people. This movie was SO boring.
My dad and sister used to quote this movie all the time. It's not great, but has it's moments. For someone who watches so many movies, my dad has shit taste (loves Grown Ups 1 and 2).
These days my dad just puts on the History Channel in the background and plays card games on the computer. I also think he's been showing early signs of Alzheimer's. Might not have too much real father-son time with him left.
>that feel when your parents have terrible taste
The Deer Hunter.
He keeps telling me to watch it but
>over 3 hours long
I like the idea of this thread
My Dad's all time favorites are
>The Godfather ( he started wearing suspenders and wearing his hair slick back like Michael after watching that movie when it came out until today)
>Superman 1 ( Probably watched it because of Brandos cameo, blew his mind and says it had the best visual effects ever put on film when it came out)
>The fiddler on the Roof
Also pic related, I remember when he rented it, and then went crazy about it, made me watch it with him, and bought a copy for himself a few weeks later
he's also really into pic related. i actually at least enjoy this one. the ending makes me cry like a fucking bitch.
he is also big on classics like Casablanca and Metropolis. took me to see Apocalypse Now redux and Alien in the theaters when they did the re-releases. he's always recommending me movies when we talk. currently need to give him reports on Rush, Draft Day, and at least one other one after i see them. i have them written down. last recommendation of his i watched was The Counselor which was total shit but he likes all kinds of movies about sexual deviants because he's one.
I get it. You thought from the title alone it would be on par with The Expendables film series?
