Roger Ebert has just died. This is a terrible shame. I remember, even as a child, just how important those reviews were from Siskel and Ebert. I can even remember a specific movie advertisement (but unfortunately not the movie) touting the famous words “Siskel and Ebert give it two thumbs up.” As a teenager, I would eagerly watch At the Movies waiting for his reviews (Roper was the other reviewer as Siskel had died by then). And I watched all the restarts an updates to at the movies. None of them could match those without Ebert. Because Ebert so dearly loved moves that all his reviews were filled with his, often argumentative, passion. We will miss this titan of Chicago.
