Richard Burton has received a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The honour was unveiled yesterday (Friday, March 1) and is located beside the star dedicated to Elizabeth Taylor.

"I believe that Seth was born to host the Oscars. There's nothing that that man cannot do, so [in] the little bit of clips that I have seen, he was great and I think he's done a fantastic job. »
'Arbitrage' review: Richard Gere excels in compelling thriller
1 March 2013 10:30 AM, PST
In a fair and just world, Arbitrage would arrive on our shores amidst a wave of buzz and fresh from being a prime contender at the Academy Awards. It's extremely hard to comprehend how Richard Gere's masterful portrayal of a man desperately seeking to avert a fall from grace wasn't even nominated. Yet this injustice conforms to the recognisable world depicted in Nicholas Jarecki's superb film, where money and self-interest dominate proceedings while morality is relegated to mere afterthought.
Arbitrage provides a compelling character study of Gere's hedge fund magnate Robert Miller, a man who seemingly has it all - riches, an adoring family and glowing reputation. Yet his compulsions to gratify his egotistical needs have rendered large parts of his life utterly duplicitous. He has a »
Barack Obama makes "Jedi mind meld" mistake in sequestration speech
1 March 2013 9:42 AM, PST
Barack Obama today referred to a "Jedi mind meld" when talking about sequestration after a White House meeting.
The president made the confused reference when explaining why it was not possible for him to reconcile the Republicans and Democrats in Congress on the matter of spending cuts and tax rises.
"I know that this has been some of the conventional wisdom that's been floating around Washington that somehow, even though most people agree that I'm being reasonable, that most people agree I'm presenting a fair deal, the fact that they don't take it means that I should somehow, you know, do a Jedi mind meld with these folks and convince them to do what's right," Obama explained.
"Well, you know, they're elected. We have a constitutional system of government."

Oz the Great and Powerful review: Digital Spy verdict
1 March 2013
Another trip down the yellow brick road comes over seven decades after Judy Garland first blazed the trail and, unlike Return to Oz (1985), Spider-Man director Sam Raimi brilliantly recaptures that old magic. James Franco gives it a streetwise twist as the eponymous wizard who, here, starts out as a travelling grifter, but there's an innocence about him too that harks back to the original.
Just as it was for Dorothy, the story begins in Kansas, in black-and-white, with Oscar Diggs (aka Oz) plying his trade as a circus magician. He gets a kick out of pulling the wool over people's eyes and especially the ladies, though one in particular (Michelle Williams) appears to have a hold on him. Still, her grip isn't tight enough because she's »
