25 films that know exactly how you feel

Dirty-dancing-lift

Watching the right movie at the right moment is kind of like hanging out with a great listener. When you're sad they console you, when you're happy they help celebrate … movies have the power to mirror the way we feel.
Wherever and whenever a certain mood strikes, check out these 25 films — our selections are crafted to match the feelings with which you're dealing. Curl up on the couch with your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and enjoy these flicks on your Quad HD Super AMOLED display (and, given the Note 4's 5.7-inch screen, you're in for not only excellent resolution, but a lot of real estate on which to experience it).
Feeling sad after a breakup: Nothing says it's over like a massive sinking ship and your love literally freezing to death in ice-clogged waves, and Titanic (1997) has got you covered. Want to see a truly awful relationship? Spend some time in the dark and twisted affairs of Gone Girl(2014). Or for a quieter, sadder ride, try 500 Days of Summer (2009).

Getting your snuggle on (a.k.a. bring on the puppies): Whether you've got a four-pawed friend of your own, or you just want one, a lazy and snuggly Saturday is all the better with an old favorite such as 101 Dalmatians (1961), or an uplifting coming-of-age tale such as My Dog Skip(2000). Of course, the reigning king of all shaggy-buddy flicks these days is undoubtedly Marley and Me (2008). Have a hanky ready for that one, though.

Dreading family time at the holidays: Get ready for too much eggnog and endless comments about your career choices! If you're dreading another dose of hometown harassment this season, shore up with these flicks: Dermot Mulroney and Sarah Jessica Parker grapple with how to fit in at the Christmas gathering of The Family Stone (2005). You might want to escape your holiday family obligations, but somehow they keep pulling you back in: That's the story ofFour Christmases (2008). Meanwhile, James Gandolfini and Ben Affleck are just trying to deal with each other in Surviving Christmas (2004).

In the mood to be scared silly: In the dark, for a scare, check out the atmospheric chills of The Babadook (2014), or the full-on trapped-in-a-cave horror of The Descent (2005). If scary dolls that are possibly real are your idea of terrifying, then check out Annabelle (2014). Here's a tip: Samsung Galaxy Note 4's Super AMOLED display makes horror movies even more horrifying: thanks to its deep-contrast feature, the creepiness just gets creepier. You'll never miss what's lurking in a shadow, or slinking along a dark hallway on the screen — and that's the stuff a great horror film is made of, after all.

Craving a delicious meal: Sometimes you just want to tuck into a killer plate of yumminess with a movie that complements the fare. Like a fine wine, you can do just that with Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011) or the animated kitchen hijinks of Ratatouille (2007). Want to get emotional about your dish? Try the inimitable Tilda Swinton in the foodie-friendly romance of I Am Love (2009).

Eager to travel someplace new: Whether you're packing, or just wish you were, movies can inspire us to see the world. They can be high-adventure, like The Secret Life of Walter Mitty(2013) or they can be eccentric journeys, such as the train trip of The Darjeeling Limited (2007). Looking to go way out there? Put on Into the Wild (2007) for some deep and philosophical trekking.

Excited for Friday: How about throwing on that perfect movie to kick off the weekend? There's the slacker fun of Friday (1995), with none other than Ice Cube; it's perfect for a throwback hangout with friends. For the kids, try the Lindsay Lohan/Jamie Lee Curtis remake of Freaky Friday (2013) — it's the old kid-and-adult switch roles story. If you're ready for something a bit more serious, follow along with the struggles of the indomitable football heroes of Friday Night Lights (the 2004 movie, in this case, not the television show).
Freaky Friday

Feeling happy and in love: Oh, you romantic soul. Witness the love of a lifetime beset by parents who just don't approve: it's Endless Love (2014). Get inspired with a new music-and-romance entry from the makers of Once (2006), as Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley learn toBegin Again (2014). Or, firmly establish where you stand in your new relationship — decidedly not in the corner, that is — with Jennifer Grey's and Patrick Swayze's rock-and-roll fueled romance, Dirty Dancing (1987).

'The Pink Panther' Returns With 'The Simpsons Movie' Director Helming

The.pink_.panther1
The Pink Panther has been rebooted more times than your aunt’s 1998 iMac — and yet, he returns again.
Franchise owner MGM is putting a modern, live-action/CGI-hybrid twist on The Pink Panther, making it into a family film that centers on the big pink cat, the studio announced Monday. To ensure a modern comic sensibility, they’ve enlisted The Simpsons Movie and Monsters, Inc. director David Silverman to take the helm.
Walter Mirisch — the now 92-year-old executive producer of the original 1963 live-action series starring Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau — is back on board after taking a break from the Steve Martin reboot that spawned The Pink Panther's 2006 and 2009 versions. Instead of Clouseau, however, this version will reportedly center on the cartoon feline.
“For the first time, the live-action franchise will be united with the world-famous cartoon character in a new hybrid feature film,” Mirisch said in a written statement. “I am excited by our concept, and I look forward to an outstanding movie entertainment.”
It was Clouseau’s bumblings that gave rise to The Pink Panther — not the other way around. Sellers’ turn as the clueless detective never featured the cat; rather, the 1963 original’s title referenced a jewel that everyone is after. But the cartoon panther did appear in the opening credits, and his popularity gave way to the cartoon shorts.
MGM also attempted a reboot in 1993 with Roberto Benigni as Clouseau’s illegitimate son in Son of the Pink PantherThe Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news of the project Monday, reported that while Clouseau may be referenced in the new film, he won't be a character.

Star Wars Episode VII: Mystery Trio to Start Filming in May

Future-of-star-wars_mdtout

Lucasfilm has been releasing details about the upcoming (and still untitled) Star Wars Episode VII on the slowest of drip feeds — and the latest news is practically a tidal wave by comparison.
The Disney-owned company announced Tuesday that Episode VII will feature a "trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces." The movie will commence principal photography at Pinewood Studios outside London in May.
Lucasfilm also confirmed that the new movie will be set "about 30 years" after Return of the Jedi— which was released 31 years ago this May.
The "trio of new young leads" suggests that director J.J. Abrams has concluded his year-long hunt for talent to represent the next generation of heroes. It seems, then, that the movie is consciously trying to echo the Han, Luke and Leia triumvirate. Open casting for the roles took place in November in both the U.S. and the UK.
More recently, casting rumors have included almost every hot young actor in Hollywood — fromGirls actor Adam Driver, said to play the villain, to Breaking Bad antagonist Jesse Plemons and12 Years a Slave Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o.
The "familiar faces" line in Lucasfilm's announcement hints at the movie's worst-kept secret — the return of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford in their original roles. George Lucas himself pretty much let that out of the bag talking to Bloomberg Businessweek in early 2013.
"We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison — or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation," Lucas said of Episode VII preparation before the Disney sale. "Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them." Then Lucas walked his statement back: "I won't say if the negotiations were successful or not."
The question of how central a role Han, Luke and Leia would take in the film appears to be at the center of script disputes. Original Episode VII writer Michael Arndt was said to want a quick passing of the torch, and had written a screenplay that focused on the next generation of actors.
But Abrams allegedly wanted the original trio to play a larger role in the movie, and brought veteran Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan on board to help him redraft the script along those lines.
The "familiar faces" will also include R2-D2, whose presence in the movie was confirmed back in November.
Pinewood, in Buckinghamshire, isn't where the original Star Wars movie was shot — that would be Elstree Studios in South London. The Phantom Menace was shot at Leavesden Studios. Pinewood is better known as the home of James Bond and the original Superman series.

Time Management Hacks I Wish I’d Have Known In My Teens


Most people learn time management in the hard way, working late nights to meet deadlines, etc.
Etienne Garbugli, product and marketing consultant shared the lessons he’d have known when he was starting into a presentation posted to SlideShare.
Here’s what presentation says:-
Time Management Hacks :-
1. There’s always time
Time is priorities.
2. “Only plan for 4-5 hours of real work per day”
Days always fill up.
3. “It’s normal to have days where you just can’t work and days where you’ll work 12 hours  straight.”
Work more when you are in the working zone.
Relax when you’re not.
4. “Your time is $1000/hour, and you need to act accordingly.”
Respect your time and
Make it respected.
5. Stop multi-tasking.
It merely kills your focus.
6. Set up a work routine and stick to it.
Your body will adapt.
7. We’re always more focused
and productive with limited time.
8. Work is the best way to start working.
Start with short tasks to get on the track.
9. “Doing is better than perfect.”
Work iteratively.
Expectations to do things perfectly are oppressing.
10. More work hours doesn’t mean more productivity.
Use constraints as opportunities.
11. “Separate thinking and execution to execute faster and think better.”
Separate strategic and brainless tasks to become more productive.
12. Keep the same context throughout the day
Switching between clients/projects is unproductive.
13. Work around procrastination.
Procrastinate between intense dashes of work.
14. No two tasks ever hold the same importance.
Always prioritize.
15. Always know the single(one) thing you need to do get done during the day.
16. Delegate and learn to make use of other people.
17. Turn the page on yesterday.
Only think about today and tomorrow.
18. Don’t let tasks go on indefinitely.
Set tasks for everything.
19. Set end dates for stressful and intense activities.
Everything ends at some point.
20. “Don’t trust your brain for your memory. Get reminder app for everything.”
Always take notes.
21. Write down anything that distracts you- new ideas, random thoughts or whatever. The point is , if you write them down, they’ll stop bubbling up.
22. Take breaks sometimes.

12 Things You Forgot Happened in 2013

  • Paula-deen

    1. Paula Deen's Career Melts After Deposition

    Paula Deen, the celebrity cook known best for her affinity for adding extra butter, faced career chaos this summer over details of a leaked deposition. The paperwork included Deen's admissions to using the N-word and plans for a Southern plantation-style wedding, among others.
    In the wake of the deposition, Deen was booted from pork-producing company Smithfield Foods and her television home, the Food Network. Both noted an intolerance to racial slurs as the cause.
    Deen later appeared on the Today show to address her side of the story. Watch it in full here.

  • Rodman

    2. Dennis Rodman Kicked It With Kim Jong Un – Twice

    Former NBA star and self-titled "bad boy" Dennis Rodman visited North Korea in early 2013 with a film crew from media company Vice -- a "basketball diplomacy" trip, the company claimed, that they would turn into an HBO series.
    Rodman and his film crew were reportedly the first Americans to have met Kim since he took over North Korean rule from his father Kim Jong-il in 2011.
    The communist dictatorship has been at odds with the United States for decades. The country made direct nuclear threats to the Obama administration just months before Rodman's visit. But the basketball star insists Kim is a big-time basketball fan, particularly of the late-90s Chicago Bulls squad Rodman was a part of.
    Rodman returned for a second visit in early September. He'll reportedly return in late December 2013 for a third time, despite political tension following Kim's ordered assassination of his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, last week.

  • Selfie

    3. 'Selfie,' 'FOMO' and 'Twerk' Added to Dictionary

    Srsly: A selfie's worth a thousand Bitcoins.
    In late August 2013, the Oxford Dictionaries Online added a handful of web- and viral content-related words to its archives: selfie, digital detox, Bitcoin, BYOD, emoji, FOMO, geek chic, hackerspace, phablet, srsly, TL;DR and -- most notably -- twerk.
    Twerk, sensationalized in 2013 by Miley Cyrus, is defined as a verb: "[A] dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."
    The dictionary included the following sentences as examples: "Just wait till they catch their daughters twerking to this song," and, "Twerk it girl, work it girl."
    TL;DR: This.

  • Manti

    4. The Manti Te'o Girlfriend Hoax

    American linebacker Manti Te'o, who was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the 2013 NFL draft, was subject to a bizarre romantic hoax.
    In October 2012, Te'o, then a linebacker for the University of Notre Dame, appeared in a YouTube video to speak about the recent losses of his grandmother and his girlfriend -- both of whom had passed away from illnesses, only six hours apart, on Sept. 12, 2012.
    In mid-January 2013, two reporters from Deadspin published an investigation into Te'o's girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, claiming there was no evidence of her existence all along. The relationship was, after all, online -- the two had never met in person.
    The sports world was stunned. Kekua, it turns out, was a hoax. The photos associated with her social media activity had been stolen from the account of a young California woman who was unaware of the hijacking.
    Notre Dame and Te'o released statements admitting that Kekua had never existed, but added that Te'o was actually among the hoax's victims, not its perpetrators. They had both become aware of the truth in late December 2012.
    Later, it was revealed that 22-year-old Ronaiah Tuiasosopo was behind the hoax: He admitted responsibility to Kekua's tweets, speaking in a falsetto voice on the phone with Te'o -- everything.
    He claims he was in love with Te'o, and assured the football player knew nothing of the hoax.

    5. House of Cards Becomes First Web Series to Win Emmy

    In September, Netflix's political thriller House of Cards became the first web series to win an Emmy award.
    David Fincher, the show's director, won the award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series, beating out showrunners for Breaking BadBoardwalk EmpireDownton Abbey and Homeland.
    House of Cards was nominated for a total of nine Emmys. It won two additional Creative Arts Emmys for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series and Outstanding Cinematography for a Single Camera Series.

  • 6. New 'Harlem Shake' Goes Viral -- and Real Harlem Reacts

    Contrary to popular belief, the Harlem Shake -- the real one -- didn't originate from a 2012 synth song; it actually started in Harlem, New York City, nearly three decades ago.
    DJ artist Baauer released an unrelated electronic song, which happened to be called "Harlem Shake," in late 2012. In February 2013, Australian-based comedy group The Sunny Coast Skate uploaded a video of its members dancing to the song. Soon, their dance spread everywhere. It begins with a lone person jiving in a room full of bored on-lookers, then cuts into a group craze-off once the beat drops. Like, everywhere.
    The real Harlem wasn't impressed. Shortly after the craze began, YouTubers SchleppFilms filmed a series of street interviews on Harlem's 125th Street, outside the famed Apollo Theater, asking residents what they really thought of the new dance that stole their neighborhood's name. The answers -- "It looks like they're dry-humping air;" "They're making an absolute mockery out of [Harlem]" -- are less than flattering.
    Some residents later responded with a video showing what the dance should really look like.

  • 7. Veronica Mars Movie Raises Funds Through Kickstarter

    Rob Thomas, creator of the TV mystery show Veronica Mars, raised money through Kickstarter to take the series to the big screen.
    The campaign's goal was initially $2 million, but at time of writing, it's racked up more than $5 million from nearly 100,000 donors across the world.
    In the movie, Veronica (played by Kristen Bell) returns to her hometown of Neptune, Calif., after being gone for 10 years, to aid former love interest Logan (played by Jason Dohring), who's been accused of killing his pop star girlfriend.
    The film's release date is March 14, 2014 -- exactly one year and one day after Thomas launched the crowdfunding campaign.

  • 8. Lance Armstrong Admits to Doping on 'Oprah' Special

    For most of cyclist Lance Armstrong's life, he'd faced consistent allegations from the media and his competitors that he'd relied on PEDs to win his record seven Tour de France titles, from 1999 to 2005. Armstrong, however, denied everything.
    In June 2012, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) officially accused him of doping and trafficking drugs. After more pressure, predominately through social media, Armstrong finally admitted to using PEDs during an interview with Oprah in early 2013 (above).
    Following the investigation and interview, all of Armstrong's sponsors -- including Nike, which had previously supported the Livestrong campaign -- dropped him.

    9. Lego Builds a Life-Sized X-Wing Fighter

    In April, Lego built its largest structure to date: a life-sized X-Wing fighter from the Star Wars franchise.
    The structure was built in the Czech Republic over the course of four months, then shipped in pieces via freight ship to Long Island, N.Y. It was officially unveiled in New York City's Times Square for a weekend in May, then shipped off -- again, in pieces -- to Legoland in California.
    The huge structure is comprised of 5,335,200 individual Lego bricks. At 11 feet tall, 43 feet long and 44 feet wide, it weighs almost 46,000 pounds. Lego designed the ship in celebration of Cartoon Network's The Yoda Chronicles, which premiered in May.
    Mashable was lucky enough to get a first-hand glance. Flip through the full gallery of pics here.

  • 10. Videos of Russian Asteroid Strike Go Viral

    On Feb. 15, 2013, a small asteroid entered the Earth's atmosphere and exploded about 76,000 feet above Chelyabinsk, Russia.
    The explosion created a shockwave that damaged nearby homes and injured more than 1,000 people. Most injuries resulted from shattered glass and debris; some even reported sunburn and temporary blindness from the flash.
    Within hours of the boom, several videos had already been uploaded to YouTube, most of which were taken from dashboard cameras. (A reported one million Russians have cameras installed in their cars as a way to monitor potential police corruption.)
    In November, Science magazine published an in-depth study about the impact.
    Take a look at a compilation of the day's videos above.

  • 11. Andy Murray Becomes First British Man to Win Wimbledon in 77 Years

    In June, Scottish tennis player Andy Murray defeated number one-ranked Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final. In doing so, Murray became the first British man to win the yearly London tournament in 77 years. The last British winner was Virginia Wade in 1977, and the last British man to win was Fred Perry, who claimed the title in 1936.
    The grueling match lasted more than three hours, ending with a score of 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.
    Murray, 26, gave an emotional and earnest speech upon receiving the trophy. Watch it above.
    On Dec. 15, 2013, Murray was awarded the prestigious BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award.

  • 12. People 3D Print Guns

    2013 was informally the year of the 3D printer. Along with groundbreaking innovations in the fields of healthcarearchitecture and artificial intelligence, another area of focus hit it big: firearms.
    In early May, a man named Cody Wilson fired the world's first entirely 3D-printed handgun, then filmed it and posted its blueprints online.
    Soon, gun enthusiasts and just-plain-curious 3D printer owners across the world followed suit. Some guns fired; some didn't.
    Mashable landed an exclusive interview with 30-year-old software engineer Travis Lerol from Baltimore, Md., who printed and tested his own version of Wilson's "Liberator" model. The total cost to print it? $30.
    Watch the results in the mini-documentary above.
