Seconds that. He was one heck of a good reviewer and he'll truly be missed. He was a treasure and I enjoyed watching him and Siskel on 'At the Movies' and later him and Roeper. It's not going to be the same .

RIP Roger, and may you and Siskel be up there in heaven, reviewing films once more.
Indeed, he was. Much of my childhood involved watching "At the Movies", and there was nothing more fun than watching Gene and Roger get into a heated debate about a particular movie. One of my favorite quotes by Roger was about The Last Airbender, where he said "The Last Airbender is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented."

Oh, I am going to really miss that man!
Also, his novel "This Movie Sucks" is a treasure trove of Roger Ebert wit at it's best. It's worth owning if you don't have it.

*on a side note, nice avatar and location and sig quote -- a nice nod to a legend...
Thank you. If I still had premium membership, my user title would have said "Critically Acclaimed."
