Is that what I'm supposed to do? Because instead of that I have watched Frozen 1, 2, Olaf's Frozen Adventure, Frozen Fever, and Once Upon A Snowman approximately 1,752 times.

Watch day after tomorrow and tell them its what would happen if whatsherface couldnt control her powers.

That's what you do at first, but when they get a little older you play the ol Uno reverse card on them.

I know the feeling. Before my daughter was into frozen she liked baby boss. I think I've watched those movies a thousand times.

You guys never watched Tangled?! You are a failure of a father!

We actually went with Mandy Moore's earlier hit show: Sheriff Callie's Wild West.

My child has no idea the adventures that await!

Counting down the hours until I can watch Alien, Terminator and Predator with them.

I know what you mean, but isn't natural that we like to share fun with others, and fun is what we like and what we know? I think that forcing one to some mindset (for example, religion) frequently has an opposite effect.

So much of my taste in movies and music has been formed by my dad sharing the things that he loves with me. I never would have listened to The Clash or Jim Croce, or watched movies like Dr Strangelove and North by Northwest if it wasn't for his recommendations.

[–] [email protected] 5 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

Me too, and plenty of those are things that I've continued to love, like Star Trek.

I think it's important to have a connection with older cultural touchstones.

My kid and I bonded a lot over Star Trek TNG, and I love that the show imparts a lot of wisdom and ethical lessons, which have become a part of my kid's personality, just as they became a part of my personality when I was younger than he is now.

Parents sharing stuff that made them happy with their kids?

I only realized a few years ago that two of the movies my dad loved (Goldfinger and High Plains Drifter) comprised the (supposed) "hero" perpetrating actual rape on-screen and it being portrayed as a perfectly acceptable thing for a (supposed) "hero" to do.

It's no wonder we are so fucked.

[–] [email protected] 10 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

I’m doubtful that the Goldfinger scene with Bond and Pussy Galore was intended to be interpreted as rape.

[–] [email protected] 0 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

It's rape - it doesn't matter what they intended it to be interpreted as.

My son and I enjoy throwing Mr. Miyagi quotes at each other, even though I definitely like the movie more than he does. What he really loved was Real Genius. He had more fun with that movie than I did.

She doesn't like every one I show to her, but my daughter is as into cult movies as I am. She loves Forbidden Zone and Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

So... Did he make the right choice in that movie? He did get lobotomized, but he might have saved Mars.

[–] [email protected] 0 points 3 weeks ago

For all we know, that video was fake as well, done with AI

Now I'm glad I watched all those Belgian cartoons as a kid.

[–] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

Ehh, with me, it was mostly second hand exposure with a lot of the stuff my dad watched growing up. I was lucky enough to have the choice to just leave and not watch it.

Though the second hand exposure is kinda nuts considering I'm pretty sure I've seen every episode of MASH at least 2-3 times. That, and now I'm pretty sure I've seen every episode of Emergency too. Doesn't help that they come on around the same time I'm helping in the kitchen, but still, it's crazy.

[–] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Lol, for me it would be Bonanza, MASH and the odd episode of The Rifleman. But the similarly it was usually because my dad put it on during his lunch break (small town, easy drive) and when I was home during the summer I'd just go in the kitchen to clean or get water and suddenly I've spent an hour watching TV Land shows
