At the Movies

There are a lot of great shows returning or debuting this Fall, but one that I'm particularly excited about is the new season of At the Movies, the latest incarnation of the movie review show begun years ago by Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel. This season, A.O. Scott and Michael Phillips take over as hosts, replacing Ben Lyons and Ben Mankiewicz and returning the show to its roots: two qualified critics seriously engaged with the discussion of films.

I think Phillips and Scott are perfect choices, as both did great work as guest hosts on previous seasons, Scott in particular. I also quite enjoyed this Rotten Tomatoes interview with Scott about his five favorite films, and what we can expect from the new season of At the Movies.
