If you don’t recognize the name Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, you probably missed the recent story about him taking the spot vacated by Elvis Mitchell on the upcoming new show Roger Ebert Presents At the Movies.

They’ve found him in the person of Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, a 24-year-old movie blogger. Read more about the world’s newest, famous film critic after the jump. Read More »
