Some year-end thoughts from Chaz Ebert

30 December 2011 9:05 AM, PST | blogs.suntimes.com/ebert | See recent Roger Ebert's Blog news »

Roger and I thank you for joining us as we talked about the movies each week this past year. We have enjoyed producing Ebert Presents At The Movies and hope to continue sometime in 2012. This week we produced our last show.

It is the Best and Worst Movies of 2011 and begins airing Friday night, December 30, at 8:30 pm on Wttw, Channel 11 in Chicago, and all during the weekend and next week on public television stations across the nation. (Check local listings to find out what time it comes on in your town.)

In January of this year we brought back the show that Thea Flaum and Roger and Gene Siskel started 35 years ago at Wttw. Roger made the decision to bring it back to public television after it had been broadcast successfully at Tribune Entertainment and Disney Buena Vista Television for years.

We were fortunate to find two smart and »

This Week At The Movies – Episode #1: Mission Impossible, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Lady, The Artist

28 December 2011 1:50 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Well, hello everyone and welcome to my very first post, post-Christmas on Thn. I trust we all had a good one. In trying to push the boundaries of the online movie news website experience, we here at The Hollywood News have decided to introduce a new weekly feature to these hallowed pages. Entitled ‘This Week At The Movies,’ this new feature is a ten minute-ish video show showcasing the films hitting UK cinemas each week. The show features clips, interviews, trailers and more from all of the releases expected to land in cinemas, and we kinda like it.

So, episode one. Always difficult but obviously necessary. In this, the pilot, we take a look at the releases for the week of 30th December, 2011, and in particular, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, Luc Besson’s The Lady, David Fincher’s Hollywood redo of  The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and possibly one »

Now and Then: With Recent Controversies, Maybe Critics Matter?

5 December 2011 8:22 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Something changed this week. As the days passed, each became part of a snowballing narrative about critics that seemed to me to portend a future less than bright. The New York Critics pandered to the Oscar horse race and ended up muffing the whole deal, losing their one chance a year to go out on a limb. At’s criticism of the latest incarnation of “At the Movies” ignited the usual mixed bag of fury. And now David Denby’s gone and broken Sony’s review embargo on “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” Moving its voting date forward as though it were a Gop primary, the Nyfcc ended up playing the fool. Not only did it have to compete with the Spirit »

Rogert Ebert's At the Movies Goes on Indefinite Hiatus

Roger Ebert's At the Movies will go on an indefinite hiatus at the end of the year, Ebert announced on his blog.

"Our public television program Ebert Presents At The Movies will go on hiatus while we find necessary funding," Ebert wrote Wednesday. "It was a sad but necessary moment of realism."

Roger Ebert's 'At the Movies' going on hiatus due to funding issues

1 December 2011 10:16 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

In November, Roger Ebert wrote to his fans informing them that his public television series, "Ebert Presents: At the Movies," which he started in early 2011 with his wife, Chaz, would soon go off the air for good if they couldn't find more donors.

It appears they never got the cash they needed, because Ebert announced on his website that the show is going on indefinite hiatus at the end of December until they can come up with the money. It's not all bad news -- they're still discussing financing with various executives, but could ultimately not come up with the required money in time to make public TV stations' deadlines for setting their 2012 programming slates.

"We held off as long as possible but we had to give notice today," Ebert writes. "It was a sad but necessary moment of realism. The show is nationally distributed by American Public Television (Apt »

Roger Ebert's 'At the Movies' show to go on hiatus

1 December 2011 7:04 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The film criticism show Ebert Presents: At the Movies will go on hiatus at the end of December, according to a blog post published Wednesday by Roger Ebert. The public TV program was produced and nearly entirely financed by the Chicago Sun-Times film critic and his wife, Chaz Ebert, and was intended to be a continuation of the various review shows hosted by Ebert and the late Gene Siskel, such as Sneak Previews, At the Movies, and Siskel & Ebert. But the Eberts said they can no longer afford to foot the bill and are now searching for new sponsors.

‘Ebert Presents At The Movies’ To Go On Hiatus Amidst Funding Problems

1 December 2011 5:01 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Roger Ebert’s plea to sponsors earlier this month couldn’t save his public television movie review program from going off the air. “Ebert Presents At The Movies will go on hiatus while we find necessary funding,” Ebert wrote on his blog. “This move is necessary to allow the public television stations that carry our show to plan their programs for the beginning of the new year. We held off as long as possible but we had to give notice today.” In a Nov. 6 post, Ebert wrote that “unless we find an angel, our television program will go off the air” at the end of the year. Ebert and his wife Chaz had been funding the program for most of its run. “We can’t afford to finance it any longer,” he said. »

Roger Ebert has announced that his long-running review series At the Movies is to go on hiatus at the end of the month. The presenter revealed on his blog that the decision was made to allow public television stations to plan their schedules in 2012. He added that the show also needs to find an additional source of financial help, as he and wife Chaz Ebert have been funding the programme entirely themselves. "We held off as long as possible but we had to give notice today," he wrote, adding that it was "a sad but necessary moment of realism". Ebert explained that they had recently spoken with (more) »

Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert said his "Ebert Presents At the Movies" TV series will go on hiatus at the end of December, while he tries to gather additional money sources to continue funding the show.

Roger Ebert's At the Movies, In Need of Funding, To Go on Hiatus

1 December 2011 11:10 AM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

In a blog entry yesterday, Roger Ebert announced that Ebert Presents At the Movies, the public television film review show hosted by the AP's Christy Lemire and Mubi's Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, will indeed be forced to go on hiatus at the end of December while he and Chaz Ebert search for funding. "We hope our hiatus will be brief. You have told us you like the show. And we now have options. A touching number of viewers offered to send us money directly. One of the avenues we may take is a Kickstarter campaign, as you suggested. We will let you know as soon as that is worked out." [Roger Ebert's Journal] »

Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux: Their Lovey-Dovey Champagne Date

1 December 2011 9:06 AM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

HollywoodLife.com has an exclusive about Jen's date night -- and she must not be pregnant yet! Jennifer Aniston took boyfriend Justin Theroux out for a night on the town! The pair dined at Sunset Towers and Jen did all the ordering herself, an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com. Jen and Justin snacked on caviar and sipped on champagne throughout the night, according to the witness. Clearly, she's not pregnant! "They were very lovey dovey," the source adds. "They even spent time near the pool, enjoying the view and were very enamored." Although Jen doesn't usually pay her bill the night of when she eats at the Sunset Towers -- she has an open tab at the restaurant -- she does tip very well, the source said. It sounds like Jen took Justin out for a nice date night -- how sweet! -- Reporting By Russ Weakland More Jen & Justin News »

Roger Ebert Confirms That At The Movies Going Into Hiatus

1 December 2011 7:50 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Weeks ago, Roger Ebert warned that his syndicated movie-review program At the Movies was in dire financial straits and potentially would be pulled because he and wife Chaz -- who produces the program -- couldn.t sustain the show on their own much longer. Now, that potential has become a sad reality. Ebert revealed on his blog that the show . which is co-hosted by longtime AP film critic Christy Lemire and Ignatiy Vishnevetsk . will .go on hiatus while we find necessary funding.. The cherished critic says that the decision had to be made so that the Public Broadcasting Service networks that carry the show have time to fill their schedules now that review program no longer will be available. .People have been very supportive. We've spoken to the top executives of several channels and film distributors, charitable foundations, web delivery services, potential corporate sponsors, and crowd-funding sources. And we are »

Daily Briefing. Artforum's Best of 2011

1 December 2011 3:32 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

There oughta be a law. Just as it should be illegal for sprawling malls and the Walgreen's on the corner to barf up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, so, too, should critics organizations and other awards-giving bodies be banned from opening the season until Artforum posts John Waters's annual "Best Films of 2011" list on December 1. Tradition, people.

Today's the day, and since it's also World Aids Day, I'm choosing his #9 as a sample quote: "We Were Here (David Weissman) Half my friends died of AIDS, so this simple and painfully told doc on the disastrous epidemic's effect on San Francisco is personal. If you don't sob watching, maybe you should be dead too."

Joining Waters on the same page this year is Ed Halter, founder and director of Light Industry and — whoa — a co-curator of the film and video program for the 2012 Whitney Biennial, opening March 1. His #1: "Inkblot films »

Filed under: Movie News

It looks like Roger Ebert never found that "angel." In a post to his blog on Wednesday night, the legendary film critic revealed that his television show, 'Ebert Presents At the Movies,' will close its balcony at the end of December for an unknown length of time while additional financing is sought to keep 'At the Movies' on air. "This move is necessary to allow the public television stations that carry our show to plan their programs for the beginning of the new year.

New film 50/50 shows that death can get a lot of laughs

18 November 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

'Cancer comedy' proves you don't have to resort to Hollywood cliches when it comes to death on film, says John Patterson

At the movies, Death never gets any respect. Among the diverse fates and dooms available to any movie's characters, he's always the last guy anyone wants to hang out with. But, in a nice karmic turnaround, he is indeed the very last guy they'll get to hang out with. Always the party-pooper, always a drag, ever the least welcome guest at any table he sups at, people flee for the far horizon fearing the touch of his scythe or, more often, the very notion that he actually exists, that he's coming …

Hollywood is in America, where the point of life is that it must never be allowed to end, and so it mostly practises the mealy-mouthed approach to death favoured by many of its citizen-ticket buyers. No one ever actually dies, »

Blue Velvet Blu-ray Review

9 November 2011 8:20 AM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Blue Velvet is a cult classic that has been revered and copied for more than two decades.

The David Lynch film that peels back the curtain on quiet American suburbia is more than just a cult classic. It is, in many ways, the definitive Lynch film, and now Blue Velvet has made its way to Blu-ray in celebration of its 25th anniversary.

Jeffery (Kyle MacLaughlin) returns home to his small home town to help out around the family business after his father suffers a near-fatal stroke. While walking through a field on his way home from the hospital, he discovers a severed human ear.

His curiosity gets the better of him, and Jeffery decides to launch his own investigation, aided by Sandy (Laura Dern), a local police detective's daughter.

At first, the movie tricks you into thinking it might go in a Stand By Me-esque direction; after all, here's »
