It's pretty rare, but even in the world of network television, justice is occasionally served. I'm not sure if you're aware, but At the Movies recently underwent a tragically “hip” makeover when two morons replaced Ebert and Roper and I thought my lazy Sunday ritual of getting somewhat intelligent movie reviews were over… Out of desperation, I turned to the dumb Current channel to watch the frequently annoying Rotten Tomatoes Show to get my fix. (Which, to be fair, did grow on me)
Well, all is right with the world, (except for days when sports games run long and interrupt the show) and At the Movies now features reviews and commentary by two of the better guest reviewers who filled in for Roger Ebert: Michael Phillips from the Chicago Tribune and A.O. Scott from the New York Times. I'm thrilled.
