    Roger Ebert passes away.

    A lot of people don't know he wrote Beyond the Valley of the Dolls script. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065466/

    I tended to agree with Siskel more, but Ebert was by far the better writer.

    Ebert seemed to be the more critical of the two, but by being so he was able to teach how to look at film through a critical eye.

    RIP Mr. Ebert.

    So sad. I trusted his reviews completely and liked his personality -- never missed Siskel and Ebert back in the day.

    A wonderful writer. RIP Mr Ebert, you will be missed.

    So sad. On Tuesday, I was reading his "Leave of Presence" journal entry that he posted that day about taking a leave of absence!

    What in the world is a leave of presence? It means I am not going away. My intent is to continue to write selected reviews but to leave the rest to a talented team of writers handpicked and greatly admired by me. What's more, I'll be able at last to do what I've always fantasized about doing: reviewing only the movies I want to review.

    Snipped:

    The last hand in the "two thumbs up" film critic team, Roger Ebert, died Thursday, two days after revealing cancer returned to his body.

    I loved 'At the Movies' and 'Sneak Previews' with Siskel and Ebert. I particularly liked the segment "Dog of the Week" where they review the worst movie they watched for that week, plus they had a little dog on the set! RIP Roger Ebert.
