Ebert Update

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the death of a syndicated movie review television show called "At the Movies."  It's the one started by Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert thirty years ago.  There have been several host/reviewers over the years.

Siskel passed away.  Cancer robbed Ebert of his ability to speak.  Ebert was determined to find a place on television for serious movie reviews, and it looks like he's found one.

"Roger Ebert presents At the Movies" will be offered to public television stations in January.  You can read all the details at Ebert's web site.

I've always been an Ebert fan.  He can review a film on two levels-- for the ultra serious movie buff, and for the average film goer, and he can make it relevant to both.  On top of that, he's an excellent writer, which you'll see when you visit the web site.

Thumbs up!
