Robert Ebert Dishes On Cancellation And Possible New Show

| Filed under: Film Flickers

Although At the Movies has been cancelled, Roger Ebert has taken to his blog to inform fans that he is not done reviewing films.

He says:

Yes, Chaz and I are still going ahead with our plans for a new movie review program on television. No, Wednesday's cancellation of "At the Movies" hasn't discouraged us. We believe a market still exists for a weekly show where a couple of critics review new movies.

I can't reveal details about the talks we're deeply involved in. I can say that the working title was "Roger Ebert presents Fill in Words Here," and that it has now become "Roger Ebert presents At the Movies." Gene Siskel and I started using that title way back in 1980, when we left PBS for Tribune Broadcasting. I can also say the Thumbs will return.

So glad he'll still be working!

    HE'S OVER THE HILL. ROTTENTOMATOES.COM RATING SYSTEM IS MUCH BETTER THAN 2 DORKY REVIEWERS. HE'S BEEN WRONG ON MANY REVIEWS HE GAVE 2 THUMBS UP! A PERCENTAGE BASED ON HUNDRED OF REVIEWS IS MORE ACCURATE.

    Um…Roger Ebert has NEVER stopped worker. He is first and foremost a writer and a Pulitzer winning writer at that. His columns, blogs, websites and books have never stopped despite his illness.

    he needs to stick to radio now…come on!

    Xcalibur- He is not over the hill and has and will be around much longer than half the critics on rotten tomatoes and great number who are not even to be deemed professional. Just because he does not agree with a bunch of other critics does not make him wrong. Just means he has better taste or at the very least is giving his opinion which you can choose not or to agree with…

    JESUS……He looks like Eric Cartmans Dad.

    I'm not busting this guys chops either and hope he gets better but Christ on a Crutch, who was this guys plastic surgeon, Trey Parker?

    I don't mean to be cruel but, everytime i see his face i am startled and frightened. it's very creepy. I feel so ashamed.
    He is very brave and I love that he is soldiering on with his life.



  16. 16

    why does he look like that ? That's not from cancer… is it plastic surgery? Bleh



  17. 17

    Roger! Roger! Roger!!!!!!!!!!

    I hope you people who are making snarky remarks don't have to ever deal with a disfiguring illness. It takes a lot of courage to go into the public eye when you don't look like the average guy. He's got a great spirit.

    Indy Indy,
    You have a great point there. He still looks like Eric Cartmens Dad from Southpark. Now……..Respect my authoritiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

    Re: JCPR – He had surgery done on the inside of his mouth in order to save his life from cancer. That is why he can't talk and uses computer software to do his talking for him. Didn't you even see the clips of him and his wife, Chaz's appearance on Oprah. Give the man a break!

    Who is Robert Ebert????



  22. 22

    Is that Wayland Flowers' puppet Madame??
