There was perhaps no film as talked about or divisive in 2011 than Madonna's "W.E." It seems everyone had an opinion about the ambitious movie, which tackled romance, historical drama and more all at once in a tale that spanned two distinctly different time periods. And if you finally want to see what everyone was discussing, we've got some copies for some lucky readers.

Taking place a few years after “2 Days in Paris,” with the events from that film summed up in a puppet show, Jack (played Adam Goldberg) is gone and Marion (Delpy) lives in New York with her boyfriend Mingus (Chris Rock) and their respective children from previous relationships. Both lead artistic New York lives as Marion is about to open a photo exhibit and Mingus is writing for the Village Voice along with hosting two radio shows. Marion's father Jeannot (Albert Delpy) and sister Rose (Alexia Landeau) are coming to New York to spend time as a family following the death of Marion's mother. The promise of foreign customs and crazy old men is fulfilled the second we meet Dad, locked in customs and removing the sausages he strapped to his chest.

By now you've heard that Lindsay Lohan has somewhat miraculously landed an acting gig, an act previously thought impossible due to her general unreliability and ongoing legal and personal problems. But leave it to producer Larry Thompson who has done the impossible, and lined up the actress to play Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick." Surely a decision borne out of wanting to get the best person possible for the role, and not some kind of stunt casting done to ensure high ratings for what will otherwise be a probably terrible movie, the chatty Thompson has revealed that landing the talents of Lohan don't come cheap.

So, was it because of the reshoots that are apparently taking place on "47 Ronin" or to give the film more time to get the 3D looking right? Well, it depends on who you believe but either way, if you wanted to see the Keanu Reeves-led samurai epic, you're going to have to wait just a little bit longer.

Employing a hybrid of smart and quippy comedic observations, a perceptive outlook on the complications of 20/30-something relationships in New York and genuine moments of romantic heartache, the romantic comedy “Lola Versus” can’t seem to synthesize these elements into a fully satisfying experience by the end of its brief 89 minute running time.

While we're still waiting for the ambitious "Cloud Atlas" to show up -- all we know so far is that has an A-list playing multiple roles and Hugh Grant raping and killing people -- the directing siblings The Wachowskis are already gearing up their next, equally secretive "Jupiter Ascending." Not much is known about the project except that it will return the pair to the realm of the sci-fi franchise, and that Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis were being offered the lead roles. Well, there's now one down and one to go.

While "Battleship" will probably still be the dumbest movie of the summer by a country mile (though with $129 million in the bank already thanks to international ticket sales, it's Universal who's laughing last), "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" could be coming in at close second.

A sterile basement, untouched by tainted hands. A small coalition of the willing, clean, bright-eyed and brimming with a mixture of fear and optimism. A beautiful woman with a secret, clad in white, attached to a breathing apparatus, telling an outlandish story. Like the listeners, you hang on to every word, you cling to every hidden meaning. This is the world of “Sound of My Voice.”
