This weekend you can spend some time with your old man and show him how much you care by not getting him another tie for Father's Day. Blu-ray Bob scanned the releases of the past few months and handpicked the best titles for the type of dad you have.
The Jovial Avid Golfer: You'll score a hole in one with pops by putting on the 30th anniversary of the classic comedy Caddyshack, which just made its Blu-ray debut. Named by AFI as one of the top sports-themed movies of all time, Caddyshack remains a guilty pleasure for many and features memorable moments from Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray chasing that gopher puppet.
He's Not Really My Father: Don't really like who your mom remarried? Throw out a hint with Shout Factory’s just-released 1987 original The Stepfather this week on Blu-ray starring Terry O'Quinn (John Locke from Lost) as a father figure with one mother of a past.
The Former '80s Rocker: Are you in your early 20s and have a father who rode the New Wave two decades ago? Show him you can hang old-school style by picking him up U2: 360° at the Rose Bowl on DVD or Blu-ray. The show was Bono and the boys' biggest U.S. gig ever and features performances of now-classic songs like "Mysterious Ways," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and many more.
The Strong and Silent Type: Is your father a man of few words? Is he a no-nonsense kind of guy? Clint Eastwood is probably his movie idol, so pick up The Man With No Name Trilogy or The Clint Eastwood Collection—both on DVD or Blu-ray—and make his day.
Sensitive Dad: If you want to have a good cry with your old man, pick up The Road, which stars Viggo Mortensen as a dying father in a post-apocalyptic world who stops at nothing to protect his young son from dangerous scavengers.
Activist Dad: Is your dad an avid recycler who is always looking for a new way to "go green"? He'll connect with the pro-environment message in Avatar, which just so happens will also look out of this world on Blu-ray on your father's HDTV.
Manly Dad: Does your dad like old gladiator movies? Let's skip past the obvious Airplane jokes and get him a copy of the 50th anniversary edition of Spartacus, which just debuted on Blu-ray, pronto.
Crazy Hip Daddio: So your dad is the type that hangs with your friends and is hip to what's down in pop culture. Crack open a beer and share the Southern decadence in the second season of HBO's smash hit vampire series True Blood, available on both DVD and Blu-ray.
Class-Act Dad: If your dad is a put-together class act, you can't go wrong with any of the first three seasons of Mad Men on either DVD or Blu-ray. The award-winning AMC show about the lives of the men and women working at a powerful Manhattan ad agency during the early '60s is one of the best TV shows ever made, and it will transport your father back to his youth.
