    I salute you Mr Ebert. I may not have agreed with you all of the time but I always respected your reviews. Rest in peace

  2. Lackey says:

    A major influence on me, both as an armchair film critic and as a writer in general. He will be sorely missed. RIP.

    a truly amazing talent who inspired many of us and pushed us to think more deeply about film. He will be sorely missed.

    Without Ebert I would never have become a film blogger. Before Siskel and Ebert and wonderful tv show, I never even realized you could analyze movies past “It was funny, scary, sad or action-packed”. He was a brilliant reviewer (and not just because our taste was remarkably similar) that truly represented the pinaccle of film criticism.

    RIP Roger. You were truly one of the greats. Thanks for everything you’ve done for cinema.

  5. I don’t know where I would be if it wasn’t for him. I’m really sad that he won’t be writing anymore yet he’s left a huge mark in cinema that will be irreplaceable. R.I.P. Roger. I’ll eat at Steak & Shake in your memory since I know you love the food very much. I hope they have one up there in Cinema Heaven.

  6. Probalby one of the greatest film critics of all time. It is a sad sad day.

    An unbearable loss to me. He made me look at films differently. Made me look at films as an art above all else. RIP.

    Shocked to read the news this morning about his passing. An inspiration for many movie bloggers and one of the only critics I regularly read. His unique style, where he not only reviewed the movies, but also about himself alway were a joy to read. He will be missed.

    When I first saw At the Movies, I thought to myself, “these are two of the most pompous jerks I’ve ever seen on television!” I kept watching just to see how outrageous they could be. It wasn’t long before I was hooked, and of course, I grew to like and respect both men very much. I was similarly saddened when Gene passed away at such a young age.

    Roger was truly courageous, working and writing right up to the end. He will be sorely, sorely missed!

    My heart sank when I read the news that Roger Ebert died. I wanted him to fight the cancer back and keep on trucking. Siskel & Ebert was my go to review show when I was getting into movie watching in high school. He is irreplaceable. He will be missed.

    It’s truly a sad day for movie fans. He struggled so hard to overcome his illness with bravery and courage.

  14. I saw director Oliver Stone “In Conversation” a few weeks ago at a nearby arts facility. He called Ebert “one of the great movie critics”. Stone said Ebert always strove to understand what the filmmaker was saying, and never took cheap shots.

    My partner Vicki shares her thought on Roger Ebert- I’ll post my addendum to that article by tomorrow…
