I was in the grocery store today selecting for a card for Mother’s Day. There were too many to choose from. Mother’s are special. They want to to be loved. And so do dads. I looked around to find a card for Father’s Day but they had none.  Guess it was too early. 

Later, at dinner, I was talking to my parents about the cost of greeting cards these days. My mother’s card was $6.99. That’s pretty steep, although my mom os worth it.  So is my dad. I am fortunate to have loving, responsible parents. They have helped me when I needed it, and left me be when I needed that too.
After dinner I went home and started looking for a movie to watch, and even though it’s Mother’s Day, Father’s Day was on my mind. I don’t want to forget to buy a card for him.
The first movie to come to mind was Taken.   Liam Neeson plays an ex CIA agent with an estranged daughter and ex-wife. When his daughter is kidnapped in Europe by a sex slave ring, the whoop-ass explodes. Neeson’s character sets out to save his baby girl. And boy, howdy. many, many people regret it.
The second movie to come to mind is the often looked over Lost in Space staring Gary Oldman, William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc, Mimi Rogers, and others. William Hurt plays Professor Robinson who ultimately saves his son Will from the treachery of Dr. Smith. The movie is fairly true to the classic tv show.
The last movie in this list is Battle Los Angeles. Battle Los Angeles is a 2011 American military science fiction war film starring Aaron Eckhart as demoted  platoon sergeant Michael Nantz under the command of a green, never seen battle,  2ndLt. William Martinez when aliens invade Earth. Immediately everything goes to hell and Nantz steps up to inspire and eventually lead a group of scared young soldiers and civilians. After a tragic even, he becomes a surrogate foster for a young boy. Nantz demonstrates that even a childless man can be a role model and father figure.
