Colin Warde, 35, a production designer for feature films and television, watched movies with his dad frequently before he passed.
Warde's love of all things sci-fi can be blamed on his father. For Father's Day, he suggests watching “Star Trek 2: Wrath of Kahn.”
“It has some really powerful father and son moments,” Warde said. “When I think about fathers and sons, that is what I think about.”
“Star Wars” is also a safe bet, Warde said. Though his son just turned 3, he already knows who Yoda is.
“I made sure to show him the clip of Luke Skywalker trying to raise the X-Wing out of the swamp and not being able to,” Warde said. “But then Yoda helps him.”
Another movie Warde suggests is “Frequency,” starring Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel. It's the story of a father and son who somehow communicate across time to solve a mystery.
Walsh and his father shared a love of watching “pretty weird films” from Western to Samurai.
“He used to watch them all weekend long,” Walsh said. “I'd sit in the living room with him and I just adored watching those really bad genre films with my dad.”
Eventually, Walsh's dad let him do what he now does with his kids: watch whatever they want.
“He let me watch the cool science fiction stuff,” Walsh said. “‘RoboCop' was my favorite.”
Warde and Walsh both loved the time they spent watching endless hours of movies with their fathers.
“It was always really special to me,” Warde said.
So whatever you watch with your family on Father's Day, remember to make memories along with it.
That's probably one of the highlights of the relationship I have with my kids — movies.”
