New Updates

By Adam Lippe

updateIn the past few weeks, I’ve been working on several articles for other sites. But also on finally being accepted to be part of the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer. You can see my profile here.

So, while there hasn’t been much in the past two weeks, next Wednesday means new reviews of Ninja Assassin, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Red Cliff, and The Road.

On Cold Fish:

Though the 16 year old me described the 1994 weepie Angie, starring Geena Davis as a Brooklyn mother raising her new baby alone, as “maudlin and melodramatic,” Roger Ebert, during his TV review, referring to the multitude of soap-operaish problems piling up on the titular character, suggested that it was only in Hollywood where Angie would get a happy ending. “If they made this movie in France, Angie would have shot herself.”

Well Cold Fish was made in Japan, where Angie would have shot herself and that would have been the happy ending.
