Five Good Movies: A Movie List for Work-At-Home Dads

Movie Break: Watch A Movie, Dad!

A work-at-home dad also needs to relax and enjoy. From time-to-time, it is important to take a break. And what better way to do so than by watching a good movie?

Below are five good movies that you, dads, can watch – alone or with your loved ones.

1. To Kill A Mockingbird is a classic. It is one of the best movies that explore relationships on a deeper level. Something that cannot be seen in many of the movies today. The movie talks about a father who is determined to spend his life “in the service” of his children. Atticus Finch is an awesome role model. And the fact that he is a widower makes things all the more interesting.

Find a copy of the movie and you’ll realize that, yes, the American Film Institute had every right to call Atticus Finch one of the 20th century’s greatest movie heroes.

2. The Road stars Viggo Mortensen as a father who, with his son, does all that he can to survive post-apocalyptic United States. Father and son travel through every sight that tells them that life is over, and yet they continue to journey “down the road”. They don’t even have any idea what awaits them, and they have nothing really solid that can protect them from anything or anybody, like the cannibalistic bands that they may encounter. It’s a father and son movie that tugs at the heartstrings without overdoing anything.

Based on the book of the same title by Cormac McCarthy, The Road is a movie that will redefine your view of the ideal father and son relationship.

3. Field of Dreams. “If you build it, he will come.” This Kevin Costner movie is about reconciliation; about a son who will do anything to mend his broken relationship with his father. And everything happens after his father passed away. Ray, the son, builds a baseball diamond upon the urging of a voice that acts as his guide. Eventually, Ray succeeds at reconciling with his father – in the most magical of ways!

Even the toughest man will tear up at this movie!

4. In the movie My Life, Michael Keaton finds out that he is soon to die. What makes things even worst is that he and his wife were expecting their first baby! Since he was sure that he won’t be around anymore when the baby arrives, he decides to make a series of videos of himself, so that his son can watch him and get to know him. The scenes where Keaton records the home videos are some of the most poignant.

An interesting side story is Keaton’s relationship with his father, with whom he reconciles before he dies.

My Life is one of the best and most underrated daddy movies that has ever been shown.

5. Finding Nemo. This is not in the list just because you will have something that you can watch with your little boy or girl. In all honesty, Finding Nemo is really one good fatherhood movie. This fish story – the story of Marlin and his son Nemo, is one of the best examples of an overprotective father and an adventurous son.

When his son goes missing, needless to say, Marlin does everything necessary to find and get him back – even when it meant dealing with fish from the other species and crossing miles and miles of ocean water!

So, there you go! Some really good choices for you and your loved ones on movie day/night. Mind you, there are still a lot of good movies about dads! For starters, though, this movie list will do.

Happy viewing!

How to Talk Dirty to Your Man & Make Sex So Much More Passionate & Intimate!

The longer a couple is together, sex may become more of a chore than a shared moment of passion. At the beginning of the relationship, everything is passion. But like most new things, the shine starts to dull, and eventually it is just something that is there. Well, pull out the polishing cloth and the cream. It is time to shine up your sex life by making it a little dirty.

If you are afraid or shy to try talking dirty, break out the wine. Have a couple of glasses, and then try. Maybe climb on your man in the living room, and whisper something really naughty in his ear. But don’t stop there, nibble his ear, kiss his neck, then whisper something else. You are sitting on him, so you will be able to tell exactly how he is responding. If this seems to be a little too forward for you, tell him you want him to say something dirty. It will surprise you how turned on you will get.

If you are having a hard time getting the hang of it, go to the old standby. Haul out the adult movies. Although they may not have the best dialogue, they will certainly show you the spirit behind a little bit of naughtiness. If you see something that someone is doing in the movie, and it turns you on, tell your man. Encourage him to do the same. It may surprise you, and then all of a sudden you have added yet another move to the bedroom repertoire.

Don’t let this become routine either. Explore things through movies, talk about them. You don’t have to go to extremes either, but sometimes watching something you have never seen before will evoke a response you weren’t expecting. Believe it or not, men like dirty. I remember a very successful man I knew once told me that his ideal woman was a lady in public and a whore in the bedroom. Try that philosophy and your sex life will heat up, guaranteed.

Things to Talk About With a Girl! You Will Never Be at a Loss For Words After This Point

Now that you have got the chance to talk to a girl you are shaking in your boots worrying about what to say to her. After all, it is emphasized everywhere how important a good conversation is. Talking about sports is definitely not going to work especially if she is not into it and talking about fashion or clothes too much does make you sound a little gay. So, here are a few things that you can talk about with the girl that you like.

Interests and hobbies
It’s always good to try and find out what her interests are. If she has any particular hobbies find out about those and talk about it. Even if you don’t know anything about a hobby of hers which might be gardening, then you can always ask her to elaborate and educate you.

This conversation range is immense as you can talk about current affairs, politics, social issues and causes, animals, colors etc. You have to learn to agree with what she has to say, well mostly. If some of your beliefs are diametrically opposite don’t use this chance to straighten things out and try to change her point of view though.

Movies
Movies are a good topic as conversation starters. You can ask her about the type of movies she likes to watch, her favorite movie and movie star or movies that have genuinely touched her. You can go on and on with this topic as almost everyone loves to watch movies. You could even fix up a movie date by talking on this topic.

Crazy things ever done
