    I think the BBC have given up on this show now. Barry Norman to Jonathan Ross was bad enough but this just shouts "there won't be a Film 2011"!!

    What a terrible choice!

    pathetic choice-at least ross told it like it was(love him or hate him) and wasnt taking obvious backhanders off movie studios like the newspaper reviewers in most tabloids.

    why not mark kermode? he already does reviews for the bbc?

    Kermode was my choice!

    whyy does it matter? They are all told what to say...none of it is personal opinion.

    Different person, same script.

    Wrong. The presenters write their own scripts for this show.

    kermode delivers intelligent,well balanced reviews-claudia winkleman has the iq of a goldfish,and not a very smart goldfish at that.

    Seems strange then that on Jon Ross' Friday Night show he would have a guest in from a recent film and say how much he loved it yet 2 weeks prior he would review the film and say how mediocre it was.

    Also the wooden way that he presented it gave me the impression that it was like he was reading off a sheet he had been given 5 minutes before filming

    Kermode is too single minded in his film choices.

    Lauren Laverne would have been ideal!

    So true, in the same league as Jo Whiley and now Fern Cotton on that front.

    I would have loved for Charlie Brooker to have taken the hot-seat.

    Whenever I've seen Claudia Winkleman on TV, be it in a presenting role or a guest on a show, it makes me cringe because her jokes are forced and painfully unfunny. Perhaps this role might be different, but her seemingly airhead-esque persona doesn't give me much hope.

    They should have done something a bit more radical and made it like an extended movie version of Newsnight Review. Have one regular presenter and two guests and have them review and debate together.
