Roger Ebert Dead At 70: My Thumbs Are Down

Submitted by: fancylad 4 years ago in Entertainment

I used to love Siskel and Ebert"s movie reviews back in the day. Almost as entertaining as the movies they reviewed.

A man who created nothing, spent a career putting down those who did.

"Well, apparently we weren`t watching the same movie!!"
"I guess not!"
- maximum disagreement level between Siskel & Ebert.
I`ll alway remember that.

I would give his death one thumb down. The ending was predictable and the storyline was mediocre. I thought the cancer cells played a strong role as supporting actors. Their performance was quite good. Overall, I would give this movie a 6/10.

I used to like his movie reviews; then he turned into an idiot leftwing f***tard. In his final years he became a loathsome, despicable person. I won`t miss him at all.

i cried. being one of the most famous movie critics, many people don`t even bother to read his reviews. he was one of THE most open minded people, giving great reviews especially in the 80`s and 90`s to more obscure movies, and most importantly movies that may change people`s minds on gay men, and other often disliked people in the media of that day ... critics are snobs. he was not.

his is a piece Ebert wrote after the 9/11 attacks, if I recall after being the target of some snide remarks for sitting down during `God Bless America` at a baseball.

I had a lot of respect for the man, even though he never came around on his belief that games can`t be art. He was 70, so I`ll let him have that.

Sad to hear. You guys posted a great "Ted Talks" clip on here a while back where his wife and friends read a letter he wrote. I don`t suppose that the mods could dig it up and repost it?

I am genuinely saddened by this news. I grew up watching his reviews. I may not have always agreed with him, but I could always tell whether I would like a movie based on his review.

people with real jobs would have stopped working, but writing your opinions is not very strenuous...shiet, I`d love to get paid to write how I felt for a bunch of strangers..i do it for free already
