    uh … who said it was a national catastrophe? It’s sad. Have some respect.

    First Gene Siskel and now Roger Ebert, they were a great team. Sadly there are none that can even come close to replacing them as movie critics, didn’t always agree with them, but they were good.

    The screenwriter of “Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens” has been taken from us too soon…

    Not a catastrophe, and not unexpected, but a loss nonetheless.

    Well, at least with the two of them, then just Roger, you could still get a reliable review about what “hollywood”, or “Bollywood” for that matter, were churning out.

    Yeah, I remember whenever Siskel & Ebert gave a double thumbs-up, the movie was virtually always good. Not necessarily one I wanted to watch — although their reviews helped me decide that, too — but whether it was good. And their range of taste was great — they had just as much fun with a cheesy action-adventure flick done well as a philosophical art film with subtitles.
    I started reading Ebert’s site some years ago; he will be missed. (And his book of one-star rated movies is pretty hilarious!)

    During a particularly bitter newspaper war in the mid 1980’s, our managing editor wrote a daily
    op-ed page column. He re-printed that poem
    in his column one day – I forget what the supposed reason or context was. The actual
    reason, of course, was he knew we would all read it and be reminded not to complain about
    how little we were being paid.

    “Do it right the first time.”

    Always good advice. Not always easy to do. And I’d like to add another generic piece of advice (not to anyone in particular), from Michael Scott, ex-boss at Dunder Mifflin Scranton:

    “Don’t be an idiot.”

    Radish: at the end of “The Green Berets”, John Wayne and the “kid” are watching the sun set into the ocean, at Da Nang, which would be setting in the EAST! Summed up the accuracy of the movie, and both guys caught it.

    Roger Ebert was a phenomenal writer in addition to being a savvy critic. I loved coming home from a movie and going to his website to see what Roger thought of the movie. If I’d loved it, I found his review brought back all the wonderful feelings I’d experienced during the movie; if I’d hated it, not only did he nearly always agree with me (or vice-versa!) but his reviews of terrible movies nearly always made up for the ordeal of sitting through them. I will miss him.

    He may not be indispensable, but he is appreciated!

    Time marches on, doesn’t it? Really enjoyed Mr. Ebert.
