Here’s the extended trailer for Lifetime’s Flowers In The Attic. Thankfully, I don’t see any powdered doughnuts.

Blue boyband member Lee Ryan is on the already much-discussed new season of UK Celebrity Big Brother, and talked about his experiences with guys. “Yeah I’ve been with a man. Everyone’s done experimentational s***. I’ll tell you later,” he told the women. He then added: “Of course, man. I’m a well-travelled person. I’ve never admitted it anywhere. No-one’s bothered to ask.” Here’s Lee with his Blue mates. He’s on the left, with Duncan James (who now identifies as gay) next to him.

And now we have the TOP 50 SCI-FI/FANTASY FILMS OF THE 80’S! This was originally going to be a Top 25 sci-film list, followed by a Top 25 fantasy film list, but there was so much overlap (and it’s difficult to differentiate between the two with some films), that I decided to combine both lists.

One of the greatest cult films of all time, Terry Gilliam proved that Time Bandits was no fluke, as he presented another film filled with visual splendor.

Avoid this version.
