    We are starting a tradition in my home. We are making our child watch some nerdy movie from our youth every weekend moving forward.

    Last week, we made him watch War Games.

    Tomorrow, Cannonball Run.

    Suggestions?

    I made him watch Blazing Saddles with me last night.

    He was like, why is it such a big deal that the sheriff is black? :facepalm:

    He has seen Neverending Story. I think we watched that when he was like 4.

    I don't think I've seen Spacecamp.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a good thing. But I struggle as to how to explain that humor to him.
