Lifetime Movies

I have to admit, I can be a sucker for some of Lifetime movies. Granted, there is some real crappy ones but there also some really good ones too. I was watching one today and I saw ad for two new movies best on two of Ann Rule's books. Ann Rule writes true crime book. I am a huge fan of her book. I have read quite a few of them. Any who, there going to two miniseries based off the two books, Too Late To Say Good Bye and Everything She Ever Wanted.

Here the write up for the movies:
Everything She Ever Wanted
  • Made: 2009
  • Genre: True Crime Drama
  • Stars: Gina Gershon, Victor Garber, Rachel Blanchard
From bestselling author Ann Rule comes a tale of obsessive love, greed, and murder. For their wedding portrait, Pat and Tom Allanson posed as Rhett and Scarlett as an homage to their Southern roots and dreams for a Tara-like plantation where they can rise through the hierarchy of the South Carolina elite. Less than two months later, their dream exploded in terror and murder: when Tom was convicted of the gruesome slaying of his parents. Pat's own brother died in a puzzling suicide, her grandparents-in-law were poisoned, and no one-- from her employers to her own children-- was safe when Pat Allanson didn't get her way. Inspired by a True Story.

Part One premieres Nov. 14 and Part Two premieres Nov. 15 at 8 pm et/9 pm pt.

Too Late To Say Goodbye
  • Made: 2009
  • Genre: True Crime Drama
  • Stars: Rob Lowe, Lauren Holly
The story of Jenn and Bart Corbin(Lowe); a couple who appear to have the perfect marriage. Wedded bliss, though, is not always what it seems, as Jenn discovers Bart’s affair with a beautiful co-worker. Distraught, Jenn turns to the Internet, where she makes a connection with a charming mystery man. When Jenn is found dead – apparently the result of a devastating suicide – her loving sister insists that Jenn would never have willingly taken her own life and left her children without their mother. Could the killer be her husband, who has some dark secrets of his own, or possibly her online suitor, who may not be exactly the person Jenn had imagined?

Premieres November 7 at 9 pm et/pt on LMN.

Out of the two books, I liked Everything more than Too Late to say Goodbye. I am curious how loyal the movies will be to the case. I own both the book and the movie to And Never Let Her Go. The movie is loyal to the case to a point. The biggest problem with the movie is that the lead actress was so miscast. The actress in the movie had a short blonde pixie cut while her real life counter part was a long brunette with curly hair. That was big problem with the movie.

That is sad that I am excited about two Lifetime movies.
