    I agreed with his reviews most of the time, and disagreed some of the time, but I respected his opinion and film knowledge all of the time.

    Rest in peace Mr. Ebert. You will be missed.

    Rest in Peace, Roger Ebert! The balcony is closed!

    I used to enjoy watching him and Siskel arguing and even insulting each other. Both of them have a great chemistry, and I enjoyed listening to their thoughts on the movies they reviewed. And still enjoyable to listen to (even when paired with other critics, like Roeper) and even reading his articles in the Chicago Sun-Times web site.

    Siskel and Ebert are definitely 2 thumbs up in my book, even if I did not agree with them.

    His wife Chaz just release a statement, and it really choked me up:
    You can feel in her words the love and life that they shared together, and I'm so grateful that she shared the circumstances of his passing, so that I know it was peaceful and dignified. Man, this one's hitting me harder than I thought. Someone on another site wrote that they felt like they lost a friend, and that's exactly right.
