How I Met Your Mother

One of my all time favorite moments in How I Met Your Mother is when Robin tells Ted she doesn’t love him. He’s been in love with her for years, and would do anything for her, so it should be this horrible, sad moment. And it is. But, at the same time it isn’t, because older Ted is narrating and he shares with his kids, and all of us, a beautiful lesson. The “mother” carries a yellow umbrella, and while Ted is talking about how when one door closes, a million others open, there is a shot of a entire street of people with yellow umbrellas. 

This scene has helped me through rejection, and always reminds me that when your Robin doesn’t work out, a million girls with yellow umbrellas show up. Self-identifying with Ted is painful at times, because a lot of things don’t work out for him, and sometimes, despite being such a nice guy, people are horrible to him. But, in this moment, I am proud to be “a Ted” because he has the dignity to move on, when something is truly done, and the wisdom to to understand that rejection can lead to new opportunities. 

This scene is beautiful, and metaphorical, and not to mention the music is stunning. It has taught me so much, and I just wanted to let people know that when one door closes, a ton of others really do open. (And to praise the amazing HIMYM ;))

Netflix Movie Recommendations: Drama

So, I’ve decided to start a series of posts where I recommend movies that are on Netflix. I’m fairly sure everyone on tumblr (and the internet) has heard of Netflix, so no need to introduce that but you might be wondering why I’m recommending movies that are on Netflix. I’m doing that because Netflix is so vast and has so many movies that sometimes its hard to find good movies that are your taste. So without further ado, some of my favorite drama movies on Netflix:

1. Stuck In Love

Rated: R 

Cast: Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly, Lily Collins, Nat Wolff, Logan Lerman, Kristen Bell

Summary: Its a movie about writers (in fact it was formerly titled Writers), but its also about more than that. Its about love, and family, and just living. All of the cast preforms amazingly, and they will have you smiling, laughing, crying and jumping for joy in no time. 

2. What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?

Rated: PG-13 

Cast: Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Juliette Lewis

Summary: Johnny Depp plays Gilbert Grape, a responsible, reserved character who spends his time looking after his mentally handicapped brother, and obese mother in his small town. Throughout the movie, Gilbert learns to live a little, and even finds love. (Though, if you ask me, Leonardo DiCaprio steals the show as Arnie, Gilbert’s brother.)

3. Marvin’s Room

Rated: PG-13

Cast: Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro (A lot of talent for one cast.)

Summary: Marvin’s Room is a story about family. Diane Keaton plays a women diagnosed with Leukemia, who has to turn to her estranged sister, and nephews for help. The crazy cast of familial characters ends up learning a lot about each other, and family. 

4. Freedom Writers 

Rated: PG-13 

Cast: Hilary Swank, Patrick Dempsey,

Summary: A powerful true story about a teacher who changed students lives. (That’s all the description it needs.)

5. Cyberbully

Rated: TV-14

Cast: Emily Osment, Kay Panabaker

Summary: Don’t shy away from the fact that this is a TV movie, or that it stars former Disney actresses. This movie is a touching, and realistic story of a girl whose life was ruined by technology. It has great acting, and a powerful message about how the Internet allows for bullying at a whole different level. 

6. The Breakfast Club

Rated: R

Cast: Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez, Anthony Micheal Hall, and Ally Sheedy

Summary: If you haven’t already seen this classic teen drama, you have to! There’s a reason its classic; its honest, and doesn’t talk down to anyone. It has witty dialogue, and the characters you meet in this high school detention are ones you’ll never forget. 

So, those are some of my favorite dramas on Netflix in no particular order. Some other great options are CampBrokeback Mountain, Mona Lisa Smile, and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Hope you enjoy! I’ll be doing another genre of Netflix movies in a little while. See ya then! (Well… I won’t see you, but you get the point.)

We're getting the band back together for PAPER TOWNS →

fishingboatproceeds:

The experience of making The Fault in Our Stars was really wonderful because of the people involved: They all brought their talent and professionalism to the story and I’m so proud of the movie they made. 

It was all so fun and magical (and frankly so different from my previous Hollywood experiences) that to be honest I wasn’t particularly keen to make another movie—unless I could work again with people I really trust. 

And now it has happened! I’m really excited that the same team is reuniting to adapt Paper Towns. It will again be written by Weber and Neustadter, and again produced by Wyck Godfrey and Isaac Klausner. We’re working with the same people at the same studio (Erin Siminoff and Elizabeth Gabler at Fox 2000), and the project is being built around Nat Wolff, who plays Isaac in The Fault in Our Stars

Like any movie project, this will be a longish road with many potential roadblocks, but I know it will be lots of fun and really rewarding to work again with such passionate and talented people.

p.s. I’m an executive producer this time around, which is exciting!
