The 1989 film “Say Anything” set the standard for teenage romance comedies for decades to come. Every high school girl wished for her crush to stand outside her window, serenading her with a boom box. Every boy wanted to be Lloyd, who gets his dream girl.
John Cusack, who played Lloyd, the “every-boy” who gets the girl in “Say Anything,” has built a respected career as an actor, film producer and screenwriter with films such as “High Fidelity” (2000) “Being John Malkovich” (1999), “Grosse Pointe Blank” (1997) and “Serendipity” (2001).

“Brigadoon” has a special place in Rody Gilkeson’s heart.
As a child, the 1954 movie adaption of the musical was often playing on television in his house.
“My mother used to love to watch movie musicals,” he says. “When it was on TV, she would sing along with the songs.”
Gilkeson says his mother was a big fan of actor Van Johnson, who played the best friend of Gene Kelly’s Tommy Albright in “Brigadoon,” so the lilting Scottish fantasy was one of her favorites.
“The Meg” is a by-the-screenplay-book thriller about a prehistoric shark run amok.
Think: “Jaws” (1975) meets “The Poseidon Adventure” (1972) meets “The Abyss” (1989).
The movie’s title, “The Meg,” refers to a 75-foot-long megalodon shark, a prehistoric creature thought to be extinct. The creature resurfaces from the deep to wreak havoc on a nuclear submarine, a research vessel, and a beach resort. The movie is based on a 1997 book, “Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror,” by Steve Alten.
I work in a chain drug store in a small community. From time to time, we have employee meetings. I encounter some pretty rude behavior at these meetings, including gum-chewing and interrupting. I am appalled by my colleagues’ disrespectful behavior. Since I am middle-aged, perhaps my ways are just old fashioned and outdated. What do you think?
