Now more than ever we've seen TV looking to classic films of the '80s and '90s for the next great small screen series idea, whether by reboot or sequel, but a proposed 'Say Anything' TV sequel may have trouble getting its boombox up in the air. NBC has begun development of a potential followup to the classic 1989 Cameron Crowe film, though Crowe is outspokenly none-too-pleased about it.

‘Love & Mercy’ – which premiered this week at the Toronto International Film Festival – isn’t the first movie to try to explore the life of Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. There was the 1990 television movie ‘Summer Dreams: The Story of the Beach Boys,’ which told the story from the late Dennis Wilson’s perspective. Then there was the more expensive-looking, but still made for television ‘The Beach Boys: An American Family’ that aired in 2000. So, yes, we’ve seen Brian Wilson’s mental health dramatized before.

After the film made the rounds at TIFF this year, with our own Mike Ryan calling it an "interesting bad movie," a new 'Maps to the Stars' trailer has debuted. It's pretty apparent from the footage that director David Cronenberg doesn't care too much for the glamorization of Hollywood. Still, without a clear Best Picture Oscar frontrunner just yet, this film remains one to watch.

TIFF 2014: 'Maps to the Stars' May Be a Bad Movie, But It's at Least Interesting

‘Maps to the Stars’ is not a very good movie – but there’s a difference between a bad movie and an interesting bad movie. ‘Maps to the Stars’ is the latter. It is certainly interesting. And it’s apparent that Toronto’s favorite son, Cronenberg, does not care too much for Hollywood -- but that’s such a tired sentiment, and beating it over our heads that everyone is terrible doesn’t really bring anything new to anything. ‘Maps to the Stars’ portrays itself as edgy and weird, but it just all feels so obvious.

‘Say Anything’ scarred me for life.
I’ve been aware for a few weeks that the 25th anniversary of ‘Say Anything’ was approaching and I’ve kind of gone out of my way to ignore it – even though there’s no doubt it influenced my teenage life more than any other movie. But, good grief, did this movie ever influence me to do some stupid things that I've suppressed from my memory. For one day only, I'll bring one of these memories to the surface.

Released in 1999, Spike Jonze's 'Being John Malkovich' starred John Cusack as a struggling puppeteer who finds a portal into actor John Malkovich's brain. The clever meta-fantasy dramedy was a hit, and earned Oscar nominations for Best Director for Jonze, Best Screenplay for the wildly imaginative Charlie Kaufman's script, and Best Supporting Actress for Catherine Keener. This year, the film celebrates its 15th anniversary, so join us for a look back at the cast of the film as we see what they're up to now.

Released in 1989, Cameron Crowe's 'Say Anything...' starred a baby-faced John Cusack as Lloyd Dobler, an average high school student who falls for lonely valedictorian Diane Court (Ione Skye), and the pair spend their summer together before Diane heads off to college. 25 years later, we're revisiting the cast of one of the most cherished teen romantic dramedies of all time.

Renowned pianist Tom Selznick (Elijah Wood) comes out of retirement for one night only to play a classical concert in honor of his late mentor. What is already a pressure-filled evening for the stage fright-stricken musician quickly devolves into a nightmare when a mysterious man threatens to murder Selznick's wife if he makes a single mistake. Drawing inspiration from Hitchcock, De Palma and Italian horror, 'Grand Piano' is a surprisingly fun and snappy little thriller.

The true crime serial killer movie is about as played out as any genre in movie history, but nothing seems to be stopping 'em. The latest "ripped from the headlines" movie is 'The Frozen Ground,' which casts everyone's favorite lunatic Nicolas Cage as an Alaskan state trooper hunting down a serial killer played by John Cusack. Vanessa Hudgens is also there, but who cares about Vanessa Hudgens when you have a Cage and a Cusack? Anyway, the first trailer for the film has arrived.
