5 Thumb-Approved Clips from At the Movies's Longtime Run

At the Movies may have spewed its last appraisals, but our careers in revisiting its reviews on YouTube has just begun. The Firefox vistas remain bright! Categorized by the films discussed in each clip, here are five dialogues from various At the Movies's eras, with appearances from Gene Siskel, Roger Ebert, Richard Roeper, the two Bens (in a very brief cameo), Michael Phillips and A.O. Scott.

· She's Out of Control

There have been poorly received movies, and then there was She's Out of Control, the 1989 Tony Danza stinker that caused Gene Siskel to consider quitting his job as a film critic. Luckily, his reasoning is more delightful than morose.

· Hoop Dreams

Roger Ebert describes this 1994 documentary, his pick for the best film of the '90s, as "a movie that raises so many questions and has so many insights."

· North

Ebert listed North in his book I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie with the accompanying screed: "I hated this movie. Hated, hated, hated, hated, hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it." In this clip, he takes the first stab at understanding his feelings.
