Happy Day, 'Liz & Dick' Is Out on DVD!
Last November Lifetime TV premiered the amazing (ly bad) made for TV biopic movie Liz & Dick which starred Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Today, Entertainment One is releasing Liz & Dick on DVD! This is happy news, I think. Even tho folks seemed to dislike (strongly) Liz & Dick when it was released last Fall, I think people may end up liking it a lot more in retrospect … because it was a pretty bad movie. To promote the DVD release of Liz & Dick, new interview footage of Lindsay on set has been released … click the embed above to watch Lindsay talk about her love of jewelry as well as her almost close-by-not-at-all relationship with Liz Taylor. I don’t know about you but I think I’m gonna hafta pick up a copy of this Liz & Dick DVD. Methinks there is a strong probability that the film might live on and achieve cult classic status. C’mon, admit it … don’t you wish you could give the made for TV movie another watch?
Coming May 26th
Last month we got to see Michael Douglas on the cover of Entertainment Weekly magazine in character as Liberace as he will appear in the upcoming biopic TV movie Behind the Candelabra on HBO next month. Today we get to see the just-released new trailer for the film and … boy, is there a lot to see. Matt Damon stars alongside Douglas in this film and as you can see in the embed above, he plays young lover Scott Thorson to the very flamboyant Liberace. If you pay careful attention, you can see Damon rocking a very skimpy and very wet pair of bikini swimwear. If you cannot watch the video now, you might want to click below to see screencaps of said swimwear. More »
You Totally Saw This Coming
Although I haven’t been following the case too closely, I have caught glimpses here and there of the Jodi Arias trial… and yeah. It’s a Lifetime movie waiting to happen. Jodi is a young woman currently standing trial for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, which she says she committed in self-defense. Issues of lies, jealousy, and other women seem to keep coming up, so I wasn’t surprised to learn that Lifetime had, in fact, decided to make a movie out of the true life story.

Written By The Late Stanley Kubrick
Director Steven Spielberg is riding on the success of his most recent Oscar-winning flick Lincoln, so of course he’s back to work on his next big thing. We know Spielberg can make a good biopic, and a great war film (and well, whatever he wants), so I’m thinking this next project sounds right up his alley. Spielberg‘s adapting a script about Emporer Napoleon Bonaparte (written by the late, great Stanley Kubrick) into a television miniseries. Click inside to learn more!
Getting It Right This Time
Back in November, Lifetime TV aired a biopic film on the love affair of the late Elizabeth Taylor and her 56th husband Richard Burton which infamously starred Lindsay Lohan in the titular role of Taylor. As you may recall, Liz & Dick was hailed as a tragedy of the highest order. Later this year, BBC will release a biopic film of their own about Elizabeth and Richard, one that will star actress Helena Bonham Carter as Liz … because the world NEEDS a proper biopic tribute to the legendary Ms. Taylor.

She Is Blaming the Script, Doubting her Acting
On Sunday night, the world FINALLY got to see Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime made-for-TV movie Liz & Dick and immediately, folks on Twitter had a lot to say about the movie and Lindsay‘s acting performance in particular. As you might know, 99.9% of the feedback is negative. According to “sources close to Lindsay“, L. Lo is taking the criticism really hard. Apparently, she had no idea that so many people hated her acting abilities but now … she knows. If you can believe it, Lindsay is reportedly telling friends that the movie’s main problem is the poor script but, yeah, she is apparently “devastated” that folks are hating on her acting skills. Poor thing. More »
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Yesterday Trent got everyone geared up for the highly-anticipated premiere of the Lifetime TV made-for-TV movie Liz & Dick. Hopefully y’all took Trent‘s advice and had hella popcorn and hella alcohol for Lindsay‘s big night; based on the responses, I’m not sure that there’s any other way you could have watched. Now I haven’t seen it yet (something tells me I’ll get another chance soon) but that doesn’t mean Twitter wasn’t calling me, lol! I couldn’t wait to see what the Twit Critics (Twit Crits? No?) had to say about Lindsay Lohan‘s return the small screen. Even Lady Gaga had something to say. Click inside for more!
It's Here! It's Finally HERE!!
Today is the day … Today, we get to see Lindsay Lohan‘s much-talked about acting comeback in the role of Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime TV made-for-TV movie Liz & Dick. Y’all should know by now that Liz & Dick is a low budget movie that tells the frantic love affair between Liz Taylor and Dick Burton … and in a few hours, we will all get to see the damn thing for ourselves. But, before you settle down with your bowl of popcorn and (hopefully) massive amounts of alcohol, read some excerpts from some of the Liz & Dick reviews that have been published … so you know what insanely (and unintentional) hilarious moments to be on the lookout for. It’s Liz & Dick Day, y’all. Huzzah!! More »

'Liz & Dick' Premieres in Hollywood
Despite the fact that Lindsay Lohan is facing the real possibility of serving more jail time due to the very real probability that her probation is about to be revoked, she wants the world to know that she has no regrets. None. In an interview with Us Weekly magazine, Lindsay professes pride at having endured all of her life’s foibles and maintains that those experiences — both bad and worse — are what made her who she is today. Unfortunately, what she is today is a washed-up child star who is desperate for the limelight and who is incapable of staying out of legal trouble. Yeah, I can see why she would have no regrets. In any event, last night, Lindsay walked the red carpet in Beverly Hills, CA at the Hollywood premiere of Liz & Dick (which debuts on Lifetime TV this Sunday night) COMPLETELY without regret … because that’s how she rolls, y’all.
