We were at Fringe Central, which is the building where performers who are registered with the Fringe can hang out. There's wi-fi, a copy machine, café area, and helpful people who are in the same boat as you are (if you're putting a show on this year).

Marshall Fine

I've been a fan of Spike Lee -- if not of all of his movies -- for 25 years. And I've found that, more often than not, he's at his best when he's directing someone else's material -- or someone else's story. It's absolutely true of Oldboy.

The Red franchise (for this is number two) is an adaptation of a D.C. Comics product. And yes, on the surface, it does the usual fast-paced, guns-fighting-martial-arts and multiple locations type show. Which is no bad thing.
