Redfire29: The last movie he reviewed was "The Host".

So thanks Stephanie Meyers, you killed Roger Ebert. I hope you're proud of yourself.


That's terrible. I really hope he had a chance to watch some Criterion Collection movies on his deathbed as a palate cleanser.

/Either that, or he should have watched Death Bed: The Bed that Eats for the lulz.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: So I wonder what they are reviewing tonight?


The temperature of hell?

Who looked more like Satan in the mortal movies?

Sad to hear.
My condolences to his family and friends.

Was about to submit as "Ten toes up".

Damn, I really liked his reviews.  I didn't always agree, but I enjoyed them regardless.

This sucks! I wanted to read his review of Star Wars Episiode 7!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I am sure it will be AWSOME!
I am serious. And I will miss reading his reviews so much.
If only he was able to review The Hobbit. Grrrrr.

Depends where they both ended up..

Upstairs, it's All Goodfellas reviews for eternity.

Downstairs, it's Ishtar.

Sad news.
Intelligent guy and brilliant writer.

I'll say a prayer for him, even though he was atheist through and through.

You're a bad person and you should feel bad, and I want the aisle seat.  What's the movie?

It's funny to think that I grew up with SISKEL *and* EBERT, and now both of them are gone. :/

it is going to happen sooner or later.  so might as well get the ball rolling.

Years ago when his pal Siskel was alive, and Ebert was much heavier, Siskel said that Ebert should never wear a brown sweater because he would look like a mudslide.
 
2013-04-04 03:57:14 PM  
...and something of value was lost.
 
2013-04-04 03:57:14 PM

2013-04-04 03:57:29 PM  
I hear his favorite movie was JAWS!

just kidding!

sad.
 
2013-04-04 03:57:36 PM  
I'm saddened by this news
 
2013-04-04 03:57:45 PM  
I hope his will contains a dig at Rob Schneider.

I only started reading his stuff about 2 years ago.

An excellent writer.

Rest in peace, Roger, and thank you for "Monsieur Hire".

He was one of us too. Sigh.

RIP Hebert


let's not and say we did, asshole

of all the stupid memes that populate the internet, the "I'll pretend I don;t who some famous person is and mourn somebody with a slightly similar name" one is the least funny, creative or intelligent.  A good man and great wrtier just died, let's see if we can mourn HIM and not spend time dealling with all the jackasses who want to make this thread about how hip and clever they are mmmkay?

I don't think I've ever used the "This" tag in a post.

This.

I can already hear him at the Gates, pushing St. Peter aside because he wants to go argue with Gene.

Siskel Has His Revenge?

2013-04-04 03:58:48 PM  
Bummer.  At least he's no longer suffering.

Legitimately sad about this.  His 'Great Movies' essays -- which he updated every couple weeks for a while -- introduced me to a TON of movies that I still love to death today.  As a geeky teenager in the middle of nowhere, it was super key to introducing me to stuff I wouldn't have known otherwise, from The Third Man to Walkabout.
 
2013-04-04 03:59:00 PM  

downstairs: Watched him growing up.

/sad.


What, were you perched outside his bedroom window? How'd you know he'd get famous?
 
2013-04-04 03:59:03 PM  
In his honor, here's the episode of The Critic: Siskel & Ebert & Jay & Alice

The Critic should have ran for more than 2 seasons. Just sayin'...
RIP


Crapple. Beat me to it.

DemonEater: That was quick, we just had the "Ebert cuts his workload" article about his cancer returning yesterday.


He wasn't lying.
