Egalitarian: Outtakes: (NSFW language all 3)http://youtu.be/OkwVz_jK3gAhttp://youtu.be/xUMZjy8rXE4
Fart_Machine: After reading that article I feel like I fell for the most long-winded troll ever.
fusillade762: namatad: Chariset: Eddy Gurge: I guess reading the entire article is a lost art.Here's the entire article.Page 1 -- a heck of a lot of throat-clearing about how it's soooo icky to mock the dead, and the writer feels just awful that he's about to tell a story on EbertPage 2 -- author tells his story on Ebert, which is the very definition of a non-story and doesn't make Ebert look bad at all. The end.WHO?some loser who won two pulitzers and felt the need to let us know?YAWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNHe mentioned his two Pulitzers as an illustration about how you should not mention your Pulitzers.
gingerjet: Ebert did a lot of fark'd up stuff early in his life and this is all somebody can come up with that's "bad"?/love Ebert
Virtuoso80: /Also, his positive review for Cop and a Half.
What_Would_Jimi_Do: i stopped caring what this guys were saying after 1987, when ebert was so harsh on full metal jacket.
JosephFinn: What_Would_Jimi_Do: i stopped caring what this guys were saying after 1987, when ebert was so harsh on full metal jacket.The movie's half a great basic training movie, half a mess of a Vietnam movie. Get over it.
JosephFinn: BTW, I'd like to note that Gene Weingarten is not the 2-bit person in this. Gene Weingarten has two, really REALLY well-deserved Pulitzers for feature writing. For instance, for Fatal Distraction: Forgetting a Child in the Backseat of a Car Is a Horrifying Mistake. Is It a Crime? (WARNING: this story will make you cry. I don't care if you have no soul. You will still cry.)
Fano: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/culture/2013/04/roger-ebert-me mo ries-bad-review-zweibel.html Here's an article written by a guy he had kneecapped, then gangraped and left for dead.
Slutter McGee: Ebert didn't like Die Hard. You can praise him all you want. But he didn't like Die Hard. Do I need to say this again: the greatest film critic of all time....didn't like Die Hard.Everyone should feel free to take stabs at him...even if it makes them look like an ass.Slutter McGee
Strongbeerrules: They sold out. Should have stayed with PBS.
TheOmni: This is a bad story. I'm not sure it's about Roger Ebert. I'm not sure if it's about anything. It's pointlessly split into two pages and manages to say nothing between them. I'd criticize it further but I'll just end up copying lines from Ebert's review of North.Not that there's nothing bad to say about Ebert, there's plenty on that front.
jaytkay: The Post cropped a fantastic photo, WTF is wrong with people?Here is the whole thing:[msnbcmedia.msn.com image 594x600]/ I heart this photo THIS much!
Smoked: Most people commenting here are ignorant. Gene Weingarten is a great writer, and the fact that you've never heard of him demonstrates your ignorance. It was not a newspaper article, nor a blog post. It was an update to his monthly Washington Post chat. You are idiots.
