When a movie is so good that it completely pulls you into its universe, it's only natural to wonder what must have happened after the credits rolled.
Thankfully, we've followed some of your favorite movies through to their logical next steps so that when you watch them again on DVD or at their inevitable 3-D re-release, you won't have to waste mental energy asking questions like "Whatever happened to that guy?" and can move on to more important stuff like "What's the meaning of life?" and "Who the hell ate my Girl Scout cookies?"

'Die Hard' (1988)
Cats: They're such divas. Adorable, adorable little divas. They rule our world, so why not the cinematic one?
We obliged our feline friends by reimagining eight movies — with the aid and inspiration of our Twitter followers — starring cats instead of humans. Really, we can only dream of such cinematic purrfection.
The first one out the gate? Why, "The Great Catsby," of course. F. Scott Fitzgerald concluded that the pursuit of the American dream could only lead to a dirty litter box at best, after all.
There's a reason you've recently had the urge to bust out your plaid shirts, Celine Dion albums and dial-up modems, as this week sees the release of two relics of the 1990s: "Titanic 3D" and "American Reunion."
Since both of these movies make us think back to a more innocent time when Monica Lewinsky was an eager young White House intern, our money wasn't on fire and Twittering was a weird body tic, we're reminiscing about that decade's most influential and essential cinematic treasures for future generations. It wasn't easy to narrow down the list (next time, "Problem Child 2," next time ...) but if we were to preserve only 25 flicks from the '90s in a time capsule, they would be these (listed in alphabetical order).

For every winner who leaps up to thank the Academy, at least four nominees stay behind -- and with them, countless audience members wondering why their favorites failed to snag the big award. But there are times when everyone -- maybe even the winner -- believes the wrong name was read and the Oscar should have gone to... someone else.
We've picked 13 unlucky times the Academy made a huge, irreversible mistake, whether out of misguided loyalty to an actor-turned-director, fear of bestowing the Oscar to a violent or controversial film, or for no discernible reason at all (in no particular order). Get More »
AMC is fast becoming the (un)official home of the swinging '60s.
Word on the street is that the network, best known for its hit drama "Mad Men," is currently developing a series adaptation of the 1990 Martin Scorsese cult classic "Goodfellas." (You know, the mob movie where Ray Liotta stops doing his homework, gets "made" and marries Lorraine Bracco.) Anyway, the movie was nominated for six Oscars — and won one — so it got something right.

"I have two favorite movies: 'Goodfellas' and 'A Bug's Life.' I love 'Goodfellas' because it's a great movie—it's funny and there is action at perfect points. I just think Martin Scorsese makes everyone look really cool.
'A Bug's Life' is a really funny movie and the characters have such different personalities. The movie is happy and then gets really sad and I'm like, whoa, I'm feeling this way and this movie is about bugs!"
Booboo Stewart can currently be seen getting his wolf on as Seth Clearwater in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1."
Tom Cruise and Madonna as Henry and Karen Hill?
That might have been the case, if Warner Bros. and producer Irwin Winkler had gotten their way, according to a feature in GQ magazine. The studio knew they had a high-profile hit on their hands with "Goodfellas," thanks to Nicholas Pileggi's amazing script and Martin Scorsese calling the shots, not to mention Scorsese's frequent collaborator Robert De Niro in a supporting role.
