I think the format of the thread title is a bit tasteless.
Anyway, this is sad news to hear but, at the same time, I guess not too surprising given his age and health issues. I didn't always agree with the man and found many a problem with the way some of his reviews were written (many times getting off-point and not criticizing the movie's story or how it was made but, rather, meaningless side issues.) But his reviews were still a good, solid, read because on some level I respected the man's opinion even if I disagreed with it.
RIP, Mr. Ebert.
