Five Favorite Films with Ellen Fox

1 September 2009 6:05 AM, PDT | Rotten Tomatoes | See recent Rotten Tomatoes news »

Earlier this year, Rotten Tomatoes and Current TV took a chance and launched a movie review television show unlike any other: one based on the myriad viewpoints and opinions of the moviegoers themselves. The Rotten Tomatoes Show, now 25 weeks old, has proven to be a success, featuring webcam reviews submitted by viewers, Current TV and Rt community members, film critics, and filmmakers. However, another big reason for its success is the chemistry and wit of its hosts, Ellen Fox and Brett Erlich. Some may recognize Fox from her few small film roles, or from her days as a film »

‘The Rotten Tomatoes Show’ is in on Too Many Jokes

1 June 2009 6:50 AM, PDT | Tilzy.tv | See recent Tilzy.TV news »

Fred Willard and Jane Lynch’s hilarious parody of Entertainment Tonight-ish hosts in For Your Consideration highlights what Christopher Guest’s mockumentaries do best - it shows blinding American enthusiasm at its zenith. So, if the aggressive cheeriness of network entertainment shows leaves you in sugar shock, you’ll likely gravitate towards the flavor of The Rotten Tomatoes Show. Something like The Insider sprinkled with ironic humor, The Rotten Tomatoes Show is a good concept that just hasn’t had enough time to cook. Billing itself as “a fast-paced, comedic journey through the week in cinema,” Trts delivers on that promise while attempting to be in on the joke at the same time, but ends up becoming a mish-mash of competing forces. Hosts and contributing writers Ellen Fox and Brett Erlich (of Viral Video Film School), a stable of side kicks, and professional and amateur film critics do their »

The Porn Star Who Loved Art Flicks

27 May 2009 9:02 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I catch The Rotten Tomatoes Show pretty much every week, especially now that co-host Ellen Fox and I are officially engaged (but don't tell her; it's a surprise), and I'm always on the lookout for the best clips to share with you guys. Recently The Rt Show had actress / cyber-smut starlet / attractive female Sasha Grey pop up to share her top five films, what with her 'legit' debut just hitting the scene recently. (It's Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience, and I'm still looking forward to checking it out.)

So I'm guessing the producers of The Rt Show were expecting a fairly standard list of favorite flicks from Ms. Grey. Maybe something like Pretty Woman or The Sixth Sense or (aha) Boogie Nights ... but Sasha is clearly a very discerning gal, and it sure seems like her tastes run towards the indie, the foreign, and the artsy. I won't ruin the surprises, »

The Rotten Tomatoes Show's 'Ode to Chest Hair'

18 May 2009 2:32 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

If a girl is smart and pretty, I turn to jelly. But if she's also funny? Sheesh, let's just say it's a good thing I just bought the new edition of Stalking for Dummies. Case in point is the adorable Ms. Ellen Fox, who (along with amusing dude Brett Erlich) is the host of Current TV's The Rotten Tomatoes Show. Every week these guys (and their co-writers) come up with something unexpectedly clever and downright "Lol" funny. Last week it was this breezy little ditty about the appeal of leading man chest hair. You may have to spin the clip twice to absorb all the lyrics, but it's worth the three extra minutes.

Nobody hates on Twitter like Current TV's SuperNews Video

11 May 2009 7:51 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Current TV takes Twitter by the short hairs and rips it out at the roots, as it should. The annoying text "what are you doing right now" phenomenon that has CNN's Larry King cackling, "thanks to all of You who put me ovah a quahtah million tweets, well that's somethin'," tonight on his show deserves a good roasting. Enter SuperNews, one of the irreverent shows on Current TV that airs Fridays 10/9c. Other Current TV shows include: infoMania on Thursdays 10/9c; The Rotten Tomatoes Show on Thursdays 10:30/9:30c. Hosts Brett Erlich and Ellen Fox will join you in a hilarious tour of the Oscar-worthy, and the straight up worthless. Help define which films are .fresh. and which are »
