Critic Roger Ebert Dies at 70
In fact I can't think of a living movie critic, now, whose opinion I'd take seriously about whether a film is worth seeing or not.
Ebert was not only an enthusiast who'd seen a lot of movies - a dime a dozen on the Internet these days, thankyouverymuchHarryKnowles - but understood film as an art and knew its history. He actually wrote a rather, um, unique Hollywood film
. He had no deep biases for or against particular genres and didn't, in his reviews, privilege either popular or artistic cinema. Above all else he was an excellent writer with a sharp, dry sense of humor.
