    I'll see you at the movies.


    Chicago Sun Times is reporting his death.

    Reports yesterday were that his cancer returned. This seems sudden, unless it came back awhile ago.

    Genuinely sad to hear, Ebert was a great critic and one of the few whose opinion I took an interest in. He wasn't some pretentious, douchebag who felt the need to be unnecessarily critical for the sake of appearing high minded. If he enjoyed a movie, he was honest about it and judged it fairly.

    Rest in peace, good sir.

    Wow, what a bummer. :( I always loved going through his archives and seeing his takes on older films, as well as reading his reviews of new films. He will be dearly missed.

    Thumbs up to Roger. I loved his show. Wherever Gene is, I hope he saved Roger an aisle seat.
