An Australian Institution
15 January 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton continue to illuminate. Their passion for movies, their near brawls (over such movies as Dancer in the Dark), Margaret's earrings, its all still here in At the Movies. It essentially keeps the format of The Movie Show; movies being rated out of 5 stars, however the larger budged afforded to the program on ABC allows for satellite interviews and greater access to the film festival circuit. Each episode typically contains comprehensive reviews of between 3 and 6 films, and often interviews with those involved with the films creation will also be shown. After 17 years on Australian television, David and Margaret are still here, and as strong as ever.
