Two thumbs up.
Shit! Roger Ebert was the coolest. I like his movie reviewing, but I really got to enjoy reading his blog over the past few years. I will miss him.
I agree, he was the coolest. He faced terrible physical challenges toward the end, and always seemed to stay vibrant and happy. RIP, Roger.
And, like Frank Rich (excepting, of course, his “political” marriage to MoDo for a while there) with theatre, and now politics, Ebert was as astute an observer of politics, as he was of film.
A life well lived.
And we learned a lot from you.
That’s not a bad epitaph – one that I doubt I’ll never receive.
I liked him very much.
Sad to see him go..I admired his strength in carrying on the way he did up until the end.
Another lost to cancer;the modern scourge.
