Two news stories related to movies caught my notice in recent days and I thought I’d pass them along:
First is the announcement that Roger Ebert is bringing a new weekly 30-minute movie review program to television called “Ebert Presents At the Movies.” It will air on PBS stations starting later this month and will feature two co-hosts plus many other respected contributors, including Ebert himself. You can find out more from Roger Ebert’s Journal. I’m looking forward to the return of the “thumbs up, thumbs down” movie review, not to mention the new website that will be created to go with the program.
The second piece of news was the announcement by the Library of Congress of the 25 films added to the National Film Registry for 2010. This growing list is a great way to become acquainted with some of the truly “classic” films, and film buffs are encourage to nominate titles for future consideration (I suggest starting with the existing list of films that have been nominated in the past).
