Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Craptastic: I'm going to the funeral of a good friend tomorrowI'm sorry to hear that. For whatever it's worth, you have my most heartfelt condolences.
Knucklepopper: That was such a shocking bit of news; like finding out your fifth grade teacher died.But now I'm obsessed; what did Ebert say about Siskel's death in 1999? I can't find an obit him quoting anywhere.
gunga galunga: bigbobowski: gunga galunga: bigbobowski: are you kidding me? he turned himself into a sideshow freak! oh I know so sad. I know he couldn't feed himself anymore, but he could have ate a bullet. why not just get a V for vendetta mask and spare us the horrorI live with my momWorst attempt I've seen in a long time. And that includes the politics tab.worst attempt at what? I can't post my opinion because it is not the same as yours? let me know if this is better: He was a great man. granted he made his fortune watching movies, and telling you should go see them or not. 50 percent of the time he may have been right (in your opinion) the other 50 he was just some a**hole. who cares that he's dead. maybe his family and they should be. he added absolutely nothing to the human condition, except whether Aliens vs. Predators should get a thumbs up or thumbs down.I'm not giving you any points. Deal with it!
Krustofsky: Dang, the newspaper today said he was cutting back on his schedule.Don't think he realized how much.RIP

I can't find an obit him quoting anywhere.I remember on their show him playing the clip of him and Siskel singing a duet on The Critic.
Knucklepopper: You don't just suddenly announce you're not going to be doing that anymore and not have an inkling inside of what means.

LeilaK: The Onion weighs in with a surprisingly sweet commentary: http://www.theonion.com/articles/roger-ebert-hails-human-existence-as - a-triumph,31945/
Surool: Also: Both were vocal champions of the letterbox format when TVs were an unhelpful aspect ratio. It always amazed me seeing how much studios were cutting off for pan and scan.
dramboxf: Surool: Also: Both were vocal champions of the letterbox format when TVs were an unhelpful aspect ratio. It always amazed me seeing how much studios were cutting off for pan and scan.Maybe my wife's first husband should have watched more S&E. CSB: She got him a laserdisc player for his birthday one year, and helpfully purchased a few laserdics of his favorite movies. One was a Clint Eastwood western, can't remember which one.He:a) Insisted it was broken and;b) made her take it back for replacementbecause of the black bands at the top and bottom of his 4:3 TV screen. Nothing, and I mean nothing, including diagrams explaining and a film encyclopedia entry would help him grasp "aspect ratio."I'm convinced that was the beginning of the end of their marriage.
Surool: It would have been a deal-breaker for me... not over movies, but being so thick-headed that they couldn't learn from having the situation explained to them.
Thresher: [img2-2.timeinc.net image 240x320]RIP Evil Knievel
zerkalo: Siskel and Ebert spar with elitist National Review critic over films like The Empire Strikes BackLinked here a few months back, both of them in good form

LazerFish: Son of Thunder: LazerFish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_fAVEz-Y34The Critic should have ran for more than 2 seasons. Just sayin'...RIPCrapple. Beat me to it.no biggie, just means we're both awesome :)
Treygreen13: MOGGEE: ./RIP. I've known your face for as long as I can remember watching TV. "Leave of presence" my arse.[encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com image 237x213] <-- California Pizza Kitchen Pizza[encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com image 240x192] <-- Roger was from Chicago and would not have been tempted.[encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com image 276x183]//Pepperoni does not exist at California Pizza KitchenUh, what?
douchebag/hater: 1) Meh. I don't worship at the temple of Ebert the way 80% of Farkers seem to.2) ONCE AGAIN it's proven that when a 'famous' person reports that they are sick but things look good it's a certainty that they will be dead sooner rather that later.3) Read one of the obits in the Trib - guy's name is Kogan or something like that. It was so over the top in it's praise for Ebbie that it was like he was giving Rog slobbering obiturially blow job. I don't think the guy would have written one like that for someone who actually matter.
ZoSo_the_Crowe: Video games are officially art again.
Abox: I always read the Ebert review of every movie I watched...even when I didn't agree with him it was an entertaining read. There were some baffling reviews where he got plot points totally wrong...I figured his brain sometimes went to sleep after watching so many movies.
Fano: eggrolls: The balcony better be closed. Everybody who goes up there gets cancer.Statler and Waldolf more unkillable than Abe Vigoda.
