    We have some amazing writers, film critics and video essayists at, and as we head into the home stretch of this year, we would like to remind you of some of their work. Although we have many talented critics who contribute reviews and articles occasionally during the year, these particular profiles will highlight the work of our critics who have contributed the most reviews and/or video essays. Here is our critic Christy Lemire, a star on our "Ebert Presents At The Movies" program, whose expertise stems from her years of writing reviews.Chaz Ebert, publisher

    Thoughts on 2016 (so far):

    I actually feel really good about the state of movies this year and remain proud to have the privilege to write about what I love. That may sound really Pollyanna-ish, but I know I'm going to have a tough time narrowing down my year-end list to just 10 films, and that's been the case for the past several years in a row. Looking at my contenders now, it's a wonderful, wide variety -- everything from "Moonlight" and "13th" to "The Lobster" and "Hell or High Water" to "Sing Street" and "Everybody Wants Some!!" And I haven't even seen "La La Land" yet. There was a great deal of consternation over the summer about the woeful status of the blockbuster -- and yes, it is numbing to see so much noisy, glossy product in the service of establishing comic book-inspired cinematic universes -- but those aren't usually the kinds of movies that move me, anyway. I'm still honored to be a part of the conversation more than 17 years after writing my first film review.

    Excerpt from Christy's Movie Love Questionnaire (read the full Q&A here):

    My parents were hugely into movies and a massive influence on the career path I'd end up following. My mother loved Fellini and would drive 40 minutes out of her way to the video store in Silver Lake because they had better foreign titles. My father loved Humphrey Bogart and John Wayne and would sing along with all his favorite, classic musicals. They encouraged me to see everything, from back-to-back showings of "The Karate Kid" when I was 12 to "Rebel Without a Cause" in high school to foreign films when I'd come home from college on break.
