ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (August 28, 2009) -REELZCHANNEL ® welcomes a fresh face to the sets of “The Big Tease” and “The Big Tease On Demand” as movie critic and syndicated columnist Richard Roeper stopped by to guest host the two shows. Roeper put his unique stamp on “The Big Tease” format, showing the trailers for his favorite movies so far this year, and sharing some of his all-time favorites as well. 

Despite saying “it might get crushed by a stampede of big-budget, high-profile pictures” hear what movie Roeper compares to Woody Allen’s 1977 Academy Award® winning Annie Hall. Also on the show: 

· What movie takes the title for his favorite underrated movie of 2009? 
· Whose performance is “worthy of a young Robert De Niro or Russell Crowe”? 
· What earns the dubious nod as “a sloppy, unintelligible, routine action film”? 
· What movie is he most excited to see in 2010? 

“‘The Big Tease’ is my favorite show on REELZCHANNEL, and being able to put a different spin on it as the host was great,” said Roeper. “I’m often asked what my favorite movies are and what I recommend seeing, so by showing the trailers, it’s a great way to excite viewers to watch those movies. 

Roeper, a former co-host of “At the Movies” with Roger Ebert for eight seasons, has a syndicated daily column for the Chicago Sun-Times and has written several books on movies. 

The nationally syndicated “At the Movies” is America’s longest-running movie review program and REELZCHANNEL is its exclusive weekday home. 

“The Big Tease” is the best place on TV to see a full half-hour of the trailers hitting theaters. “The Big Tease On Demand” features trailers for movies on VOD and PPV. By having Roeper as a guest host, REELZCHANNEL further enhances its ability to help drive sales for VOD and PPV on systems it’s carried on.

    Richard! You have to tell us what the hell is going on on the At The Movies show? They fired Lyons and Mankiewicz and hired Michael Phillips and A.O. Scott as the new hosts! Im glad because when they co-hosted with you they were fantastic. They really are worthy successors to you, Ebert, and Siskel.

    But they didnt ask you to come back or what? What about the show you were supposed to do before? is the name of the site you gave a long time ago, but it hasnt been updated in months! Is that a cancelled project at this point?
