Top Movies for Dads


Year-end is a time to relax.



That probably means that a couple of Dads would have taken leave and enjoying the holidays.

If you are spending time with your Dad in front of the telly, instead of watching your favourite youtube channel over and over again, why not let Dad have the control and let him watch his favourite shows. You could also surprise your dads with this list of specially curated shows for Dad.



For the Funny Dad

Forrest Gump

Can't believe that this show is 25 years old. This 1994 comedy-drama film is a classic underdog film where the main lead through the odds succeed with life and have a child. It's a comedy and it's a weeper too!


Honourable Mention:  Lethal Weapon

With its witty dialogue and action pack sequence, this buddy cop show is a favourite with older dads. That's a dad story in it too,

For the Intelligent Dad
Shawshank Redemption

Dad's movies may not necessarily need a Dad story in it. If it has a good storyline, great acting and a compelling tale, the movie would make it to the list. Shawshank Redemption is one of them with the clever storyline and great twist at the end. It's a clever tale for the intelligent Dad


Honourable Mention : Dead Poet's Society

If your Dad is into humanities such as literature, he would love this. If he is a teacher, he would appreciate this. 'Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day Boys, Make Life extraordinary'


For the Reservist Dad
Saving Private Ryan

For Dad who had been in the army, he would have understood the camaraderie among soldiers. He would also understand why you need to do what you have to do in the army even though it might not make sense to him. Saving Private Ryan will bring back those memories.

Honourable Mention: Top Gun

Sometimes Dad just wants to be the hero. If they can't do it in real life, they can always watch Top Gun


For the  Fit Dad
Rocky

If your Dad is the gym rat or is looking to keep fit, Watch the whole Rocky series to inspire him!
