Zapruder: [encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com image 275x183]RIP Ryan Dunn
FirstNationalBastard: over_and_done: gunga galunga: SilentStrider: I hope his will contains a dig at Rob Schneider.No. Ebert stopped slagging on Rob Schneider after Rob sent him some flowers when he was first diagnosed with cancer with a card reading "from your least favorite actor".This. And besides, Ebert's burn wasn't of Schneider personally, but of a specific Schneider movie. Along the lines of, "you're capable of making good films, you've done it before, this wasn't one of them, stop trying to defend it as a good movie."My only major disagreement with Ebert was on his stance of "video games can't ever be art". When it came to reviewing movies, I think he was spot on nearly every time, and I will miss him. I have a really hard time reading the crap that passes for a film review from most places these days.Didn't he eventually reverse his opinion on video games?
nekom: Siskel & Ebert were just a bit before my time, can't say I really remember watching them but they were certainly household names. RIP movie goer.Blues_X: Cancer... you go fark yourself.:(Finally a post we can all agree with.
RIP ROGER, ROGER!
TheBlackrose: Somewhere out there, Armond White cackles as he bathes in the Fountain of Youth.
Treygreen13: He loved Being There, which is one of my favorite films.
The All-Powerful Atheismo: [cdn.marketingtechblog.com image 400x633]RIP
dramboxf: Roger and I have exchanged emails a few times over the years (I appear about a dozen times in his Little Movie Glossary) and I am gonna miss his writing. His reviews, his blogs, his books.I wonder how long it's going to be before I see a movie I haven't seen before and then stop thinking "I wonder what Roger said about this?"
TrixieDelite: Two thumbs down and ten toes up.Siskel and Ebert were like the two old guys in the Muppets theater.Loved their arguments, though I wish they would have gotten more physical and thrown a few punches.
moops: Thanks goodness we still have Michael Medved to review movies.
trippdogg: It sometimes seemed like they had very rigid views about what a movie was supposed to be, and had a very hard time getting out of that box. The review that sticks in my mind is Siskel and Ebert both turning thumbs down on a quirky little number called A Christmas Story. I think if it had been exactly the same movie but in French, they would have stepped over each other saying how much they loved it.
RIP Like button
Nana's Vibrator: I can already hear him at the Gates, pushing St. Peter aside because he wants to go argue with Gene.
rickythepenguin: Treygreen13: He loved Being There, which is one of my favorite films.I.........I like to watch.
The All-Powerful Atheismo: rickythepenguin: Treygreen13: He loved Being There, which is one of my favorite films.I.........I like to watch.The movie was alright (a little monotonous) until the ending when he apparently starts to walk on water. Then it turned into something sublime.
Almost Everybody Poops: RIP best movie critic ever.At least he can pair up with Siskel again.
L.D. Ablo: More than anything, that show was genuine. Even reality TV is scripted today. But when Roger looked pissed off, he really was pissed off. Aside from sports, there's nothing genuine anywhere today.
