I wish him well.
The only film critic I almost always agree with, the only one I trust.
I wish him well too.
He has great enthusiasm for, and knowledge about, film. A great man. I wish him well, as well.
Yes best wishes. Don't always agree with his reviews but he is very learned in movies.
Just listened to his commentary on Casablanca. What a great track - educational and entertaining.
I may not agree with his reviews all the time, but he still has a writing style that I like especially when he slams a film. I agree that his commentary tracks are fun and informative, he is a great speaker.
Good luck, Roger.
Remember when Siskel and Ebert's show used to be called At The Movies and it was broadcast from Chicago via public stations? That's how long I've been watching this guy and his late comrad Gene Siskel so I wish him well.
Remember when Vincent Gallo claimed to have put a curse on Ebert's colon? Even though the tumor is not there, I betcha the bastard's feeling pretty guilty right about now.
Best wishes, Rog
Roger Ebert has cancer in his salivary gland? The dark and twisted part of me sees a joke hidden in there... I'm glad its not life-threatening as I too have enjoyed him all the way back to the cheesy "At The Movies" PBS days... What was their sign-off? "Save us the balcony seats" or something like that
I think it was, "And until next week, the balcony is closed."
Actually, I think they started on PBS with "Sneak Previews" and when they went syndicated, they used the name "At The Movies". PBS decided to keep "Sneak Previews" on the air with 2 other reviewers (the absolutely noxious - IMO - Michael Medved was on this show for awhile).
"I love watching the bald guy argue with the fat tub of lard!"
I remember Sneak Previews and Spot The Wonder Dog from the PBS era, as well as the cheesy music theme that was also used for old cartoon series from Krantz Films (who also produced the original 60's Spiderman, Incredible Hulk and Rocket Robin Hood cartoons) that featured historic adventures narrated by a mouse in a museum called Max The 2000-Year Old-Mouse.
I also Loved, Loved, LOVED That Book! Best of luck Roger!
My best wishes for a speedy recovery go out to Mr. Ebert.
Get well soon.
Best wishes, Roger.
Enjoying, respecting and loving his reviews has nothing to do (in my book) with always agreeing with the final verdict. But for me, his reviews are the best.
His general knowledge, high level of education, humour and stylish writing makes for an entertaining reading all the time. And I happen to agree with his verdict very often.
What's even more important for me: I often read the first and the last paragraphs of a review of his (if I read more I would consider it a spoiler, even though Ebert never reveals any true spoilers) to determine if I'm going to like a film. He has never let me down yet.
I sincerely wish him the best and an amazingly speedy recovery!
Roger Ebert is probably one of the few great movie critics who is also a great movie historian.
That IS creepy about that curse that Vincent Gallo "put" on him. I guess Ebert will need to avoid crappy films after his recovery so that the director's won't curse him for giving them bad reviews.
That came later when they were syndicated outside of PBS by Buena Vista/Disney. The original ending was something like "Until then, we'll see you At The Movies"
