For the most part, the temperature has significantly cooled. Last weekend, however, was so warm that it warranted indulging in a strawberry sorbet popsicle from Popbar. I am eager for the holidays, which in my mind officially begins on Halloween. From then on it’s a whirlwind of excitement, holiday lights, hot chocolate, and festive activities. Oh, and there’s also this. It’s not a truly fulfilled holiday season unless Bill Murray’s in it. Until then, let’s wrap up the week with a recap…
RUN THE SHOW: Hollywood’s top showrunners.
MY BEST FRIEND’S WEDDING: Is being turned into a TV comedy series.
CAT CORA: And how she overcame sexism in the kitchen.
LOBSTER LOVE: Behind Maine’s mysterious lobster bonanza.
MAKEOVER: Written recipes get a new look.
SELF-PUBLISHING: Why Hollywood keeps turning to it.
SMARTIES: The retro candy is thriving.
POTAYTO, POTAHTO: How to make potatoes.
SUCCESS: How to succeed in Shondaland.
Have an enjoyable weekend!

If I see a really great movie, I leave the theater debating whether I should watch it again just because it was incredibly satisfying. However, instead of watching a movie for a second time right away, I look for other movies that would make me feel that same emotion. Sure, there are sequels and remakes, but what I really want are different movies with similar underlying messages, character development, life stories, or humor.
This Friday’s “If You Like That, Then You Might Like This” features two incredible movies that are about inspiration, success, and what it means to leave a mark on the world or even just an individual. If you liked School of Rock, I recommend you watch Mr. Holland’s Opus. (If you haven’t even seen School of Rock, add that to the top of your to-do list.) If you’ve ever had a motivational teacher, mentor, parent, sibling, or friend, this will most likely mean something to you. The plot and pace of the movies are quite different, but ultimately you are left with comparable feelings that leave you with goose-bumps, and maybe even tears.
