I think my dad's favorite movie was Forbidden Planet (not sure if it still is), and he made me watch it after I'd seen Terminator 2, Aliens, and Jurassic Park. I didn't care for it then, but I learned to appreciate it in my teens, and now it's one of my favorites too. So there's hope I'd say.

I had that same experience with the original Planet of the Apes

I had to watch several episodes of Thomas the Train this weekend because my nephew, who is two (and has GARBAGE taste) kept saying "Watch Thomas? Watch Thomas?" I agree with Paul, that train sucks.

He also really loves this video. And when you put it on he'll go "OH BOY DUCKS!" For some reason, I hate this one less because I make jokes with mother (my sister) about how that mother duck should be reported to CPS.

I guess what I'm saying is Thomas isn't even fun bad. But five little ducks is totally HDTGM bad.

ETA: Also congrats to us on being the best Earwolf forum. Suck it, Comedy Bang Bang.

I agree. This mother duck's sadness is totally self-inflicted. Speaking as a parent, maybe do something to look out for your ducklings besides going "quack quack quack."

GET IT TOGETHER, MOTHERDUCKERS!

Also she doesn't notice any of the ducks are missing until all are gone. That's just shoddy ducking. Get it together.

I'm totally stealing "motherducker" and passing it off as my own.

My son is not into Thomas -- never was. The most annoying show that he liked was probably Dinosaur Train or Clifford, but I'm sure there is another that I could come up with. He only gets to watch a little bit of television anyways.

My son is eldest son has pretty much aged out of watching Thomas (although he still likes to play with the trains and stuff). I've never really had a problem with it. They're just cute little bits of nonsense. (Although the non-CG ones are pretty creep-a-rooney.)

I really don't have a problem with any of his shows. They are what they are. They're not for me. However, that being said, I would totally be open to HDTGM doing this psychotic piece of cinema:

P.S. I also don't hate the Star Wars prequels. On their own, I certainly wouldn't consider them to be classics, but I think they're fine as a part of the whole. And, seriously, the first 30 mins of A New Hope - where you follow Threepio and Artoo through the desert - is boring as fuck. It's just as bad as any Trade Negotiation in Phantom Menace - maybe worse.

Wooden acting? Yup. Silly dialog? Yup. Uneven pacing? Yup. Convenient simplistic storytelling? Yup, yup, yup.

My point is: I love the OT - I always will - but let's not kid ourselves into believing they're good movies. They're great, but by no means "good."

As for music, kids are pretty much a mirror to their parents until teenage years. Except that they take up a love for some of the weirdest stuff. I mean, my wife and I have subjected our kids to hundreds of different songs from different genres. But the one song that my son wants to listen to over and over is...

Wimoweh by the Weavers.

Specifically that version. "Mbube" or "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" don't do anything for him.

My eldest son’s favorite songs are:

The Passenger” - Iggy POP
Ghostbusters” - Ray Parker Jr.
Yellow Submarine” - The Beatles

My 1 year old likes anything from The Seventies. Even when he was nothing more than a lump, it has always soothed him. Anything from The Carpenters to Sabbath. Kind of weird, actually. He has no time for any other decade.

To be fair, "The Passenger" is a truly great song.

My nephew is about three and I don't know what his mother listens to with him. But when I turn on the Alt-Rock station he yells 'MUSIC!' because its what my brother listens to. He hasn't requested any songs with me, but he does love to sing Wheels on the Bus over and over and over again.

As for tv shows, he's obsessed with Paw Patrol and Blaze.

There's so much to unpack here, but I'd like to start by asking, what the hell kind of train has a jaws-style frontloader, and why is it chasing Thomas?

Also, it's Thomas' first movie, and on the poster, they have him fleeing for his life? I think this is proof that even the people who made the show hated "Thomas the Tank Engine."
