coming-of-age

Part 1Part 2

After staring at my movie collection trying to come up with an article idea (secrets revealed), I noticed a lot of coming of age stories. Growing up in a 90 minutes or so movie is no easy feat and these movies often deal with confusing, heartbreaking and even exhilarating time in our lives. They make sense of all the motions of a kid, show guidance in one form or another; they depict turning points in our lives that are all too common and relatable.

The spring is here folks, it’s time to get outside on your bikes, head to summer camp, make new friends, find trouble, get out of a pickle or steal a first kiss. But if you’re like me and have grown up into a life of responsibilities, there’s always nostalgia.

Here is part 2 of My Favorite Coming of Age Movies, tell me yours in the comments below or on twitter #comingofage.

Father’s Day: My Favorite Movie Dads

movie-dads

Father’s Day is this Sunday, so I thought it would be appropriate to talk about some fathers in movie history that stand out above the rest.  I’m not a father, but as a son I can tell you that a man’s relationship with his father is one of the most important relationships in his life.  It might be that reason alone that the bond between father and son is put on the big screen so often, it’s relatable and universal.

So grab a cold one with your dad this weekend, maybe even pull out one of these movies and make a memorable moment you will never forget.  Use the comments below to talk about your favorite movie dads, enjoy!
