    It sounds more dramatic than saying "right now".

    It's "at this moment in time."  It's redundant for emphasis, so it's correct.

    It's redundant, expressing the same concept twice (this moment and at this time). But it's also long since entered the English vernacular and as such, is not considered a mistake.

    It's correct, though it takes four words to say what could be said in one or two.
