    Recently stumbled onto the At The Movies website. They got an archive of old reviews going back to 1986. (No there is no G1 Transformers review :( ). Kinda cool to go back and see these old reviews. The banter between Gene and Roger is great. the 1999/2000 ones kinda suck because that is when Gene died and they had the guest critic of the week on. Some are real idiots...

    Go to the Archives and look by year. Some great reviews. The really awful movies make for hilarious reviews.

    I love the one from North because of what Ebert said. "I've hated this movie as much as any movie we've reviewed in the 19 years we've been doing this show"

    I swear I must have wasted 10 hours or so going through clips over the past few days.

    The only downside for me is that they often spent too much time going over plot synopsis and showing clips. The "reviews" following felt rushed much of the time, usually when there was a disagreement and only one side got the brunt of the air time. Seems like they had to cut to commercial mid stride a lot.

    Leonard Part 6 got TWO THUMBS DOWN?! I am shocked.

    Also, didn't know that there were two new hosts either. I thought at least Roeper was still there.
