Rest in peace, Mr. Ebert. I've been a fan since your PBS days with Gene Siskel. Two thumbs up!

His TV Show and movie reviews were entertaining and quite funny at times. I really enjoyed watching him and Siskel on TV. God speed Roger!

RIP, Mr. Ebert. I was a longtime fan of Siskel and Ebert since the 70s, watching weekly with my parents. While a thumbs down didn't always discourage me from seeing a movie, a thumbs up would bring attention to one I had overlooked. I disagreed with Ebert's position in recent years that video games were not art (I didn't feel he was informed or experienced enough to weigh in), though I give him credit for participating in, and bringing attention to the discussion, which still continues.

So sad to hear this news. Roger was a great critic in print, on TV, and a pioneer in the social media space. he also taught us all a lot of lessons on treating sick people with dignity, and having grace no matter the grave prognosis. Rest in peace, Roger.

Hollywood owes him and Gene a ton as they took the time to dissect their movies...maybe 3-4 a week...I think Hollywood cranks that many out in a day now, then off to dvd, pay tv. whatever...Couldn't wait for Sat at 6:30 to watch their show.
