Roger Ebert, the most famous and most popular film reviewer of his time who became the first journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize for movie criticism and, on his long-running TV program, wielded the nation's most influential thumb, died Thursday. He was 70.

RIP

Looks like Ali might have a job. I can see Brokeback Mountain 2 getting two thumbs up.

I seriously just read an article in the newspaper this morning talking about Ebert's cancer going back into business, but it also had quotes from Ebert saying he was going to keep reviewing movies, but only ones that he wants to review.

I have read hundreds of his reviews. He's the only critic that actually could impact my decision to see a movie, or even make me see a movie i had already seen in a different light. May he rest in peace. Legend.

There is no other critic that i read in particular. Yeah, i see reviews from different critics all the time but there is no other critic outside of Ebert that i always check out their review. Gotta find a new one...never liked Roeper.

Definitely a legend. I disagreed with him a lot, especially in recent years. Roeper has always been my go to but its difficult to even fathom how much of a journalistic monster Ebert was. RIP

Damn that's sad to hear Ebert is a legend in the movie industry.

I have one of his books still I got from my dad, reviews from movies that came out around 1987-88. I'm gonna read some of those reviews in honor.

GOD HATES F-G ENABLER ROGER EBERT!

LORD WILLING, WBC TO PICKET IN LAWFUL PROXIMITY TO THE FUNERAL OF F-G ENABLER ROGER EBERT AT “PREISTS RAPE BOYS” HOLY NAME CATHEDRAL (730 N. STATE STREET, CHICAGO, IL), MONDAY, APRIL 8, FROM 9:15-10:00 AM

For 22 years Westboro has warned the people of Topeka, Kansas & America that the policies of sin of this land have brought the wrath of God upon you, your houses, your city, your state, & your nation. American entertainment industry publicity leech Roger Ebert took to Twitterverse to mock the faithful servants of God at Westboro Baptist Church, just days before he received the horrifying summons: “Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: [now] whose shall [that silly vanity called a Pulitzer Prize] be, which thou has provided?" (Luke 12:20) This fool sold his soul for some fame & fortune, forgetting that God has made a simple declaration regarding His people: “Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” (Psalms 105:15). Now the famed critic is in a new jurisdiction, where he can see the blessings poured out on God's humble servants in heaven, from his seat of eternal torment & sorrow in Hell! It's too late for the fool Roger Ebert! WBC will continue to bind those who still live in Doomed america to God's eternal laws & Word, so you, like Roger, are without excuse!

two thumbs down for Westboro.

It's funny..i've read some interviews with people from Westboro about other things, and they come off like friendly square people in some stuff..but they sure hate fags.

Loved Ebert. Roeper was a dud. Siskel was quality.

AO Scott of the NY times is good.
