I voluntarily watched Liz & Dick a couple of months ago because I’m a fan of Paul Scheer’s podcast, How Did This Get Made? and I always try to watch the various terrible movies they’re going to discuss before listening to the episode.  While Liz & Dick is among the better movies the podcast has […]

But I’m getting ahead myself. The topic […]

The story on which the 2011 Lifetime movie The Bling Ring is based has, for whatever reason(s), struck a chord with audiences.  First of all, if Lifetime makes a movie based on a story, that’s a pretty good indicator right there that it’s a popular issue in the public discourse.  But then, when TV shows […]

Pretty much since its inception, Lifetime has suffered from an unfair stigmatization that has precluded many moviegoers from fairly appraising their productions.  For many, to talk about Lifetime movies is to talk about “chick flicks,” “tear-jerkers,” or “man-hating” films.  At best, Lifetime movies are categorized by moviegoers as “social problem” films, an accurate though still […]
