I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what she’s like, and I can feel how right she’d be for me. It’s weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what she’s picking up from me. I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

Honestly, I have zero hope that this biopic is going to be any better than the previous attempts at telling the BB/BW story through film that isn't a documentary.

John Cusack is just so fuckin' John Cusacky that all his attempts at acting are just like "oh, wow, look at John Cusack pretending that he's not John Cusack."

Paul Dano has the potential to play a pretty good Brian Wilson, but John Cusack was the wrong choice. Sorry, friends.

As the premiere is coming up soon, here's a mini-trailer from the script to whet your appetite (tiny spoiler alert):

Scene 3 INT. WESTERN RECORDING STUDIO FEBRUARY 1964

We come up on 16mm footage shot in the recording studio as THE BEACH BOYS lay vocals for "DON'T WORRY BABY"

From SCENE 40 (INT. MUSIC ROOM. MURRY WILSON'S HOUSE) Brian plays a "very rough, early version" of GOD ONLY KNOWS for his father:

Murry: Frankly, if you really want to know, I don't care for it. It's too wishy-washy. "If you leave me, why leave me? Life will go on. Why go on living?" It's not like a Beach Boys song. Your brothers are going to hate it.
Brian-Past (devastated): "It's a love song."
Murry: "It's a suicide note."

Unfortunately, the majority of actors end up being a case of “Oh, there’s so-and-so trying to act like he’s not so-and-so”, and often they don’t even try to act like they’re not themselves. Oh, there’s Brad Pitt. Nope, he’s not whatever character he’s supposed to be in the movie. He’s Brad Pitt shooting zombies. Oh, Morgan Freeman, he’s amazing, except that he’s just playing the same character in every movie he’s in: himself. I’m not being sarcastic. I end up often preferring unknown actors (as long as they have some acting talent of course) in many roles. There are a few really great well-known actors who can actually take you out of the headspace of just seeing that famous actor. But it’s pretty rare.

The actors with all the weird idiosyncrasies are the worst. Hell, some directors are that way too. Oh great, it’s Tim Burton, so we know the movie will have Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, will be emo and steampunk, and Johnny Depp will play a super quirky character.

I dunno, Cusack might actually be bland enough to make the movie a bit more credible. If they’re truly doing away with the strictly chronological format, that’s proably a good start. “Summer Dreams” and “An American Family” didn’t succeed with that format.

Meanwhile, perhaps someone will piece together a “Beatles Anthology”-sized Beach Boys documentary; get the surviving guys on camera for thorough interviews while they’re still alive. I can’t fathom why this hasn’t been attempted. “Endless Harmony” was just fine for what it was, but something longer and more epic is needed.

i have been hoping for to happen for years. EH just didnt cut it for what it needed to be

The Beach Boys story has so many layers to it that it needs to be told over a 3-4 doco

Use existing footage from previous interviews aswell like the Beatles Anthology but so much more needs to be told

Under the circumstances, Alan Boyd did a wonderful job directing Endless Harmony within the restrictions that were imposed on the project. I'm sure that he would have liked to have included more footage (chiefly, Add Some Music To Your Day from Get It Together) but time and budget constraints just wouldn't allow it.

With so much footage available (authorised and otherwise), one could “roll their own” documentary, although an official and comprehensive documentary would be most welcome!
