Man I loved those two! I just have to say that. I know that much can be said about Siskel the man; the family man, the Tribune reviewer, the film lover, the Saturday Night Fever fanatic, the Bulls fan, but I mainly knew him as a partner of Ebert, and I miss him. I had (sometimes still have) a REALLY BAD HABIT of popping tapes in the VCR and recording things, but not marking what was on the tapes. This is terrible to admit, but I have *hundreds* of these things, dating back to the mid-80s. I have hundreds more that *are* marked, which doesn't help me a bit with the unmarked ones. Every now and then I'll need new tapes to tape something so I'll grab some unmarked tapes and fast forward through them to make sure there's nothing important on them before I dub over them. I've done this several times over the last few months and have come across some wonderful, surprising things. I'm watching a tape now that sees Siskel and Ebert arguing over Selena (Ebert loved it, Siskel didn't care for it, though they both agreed that Jennifer Lopez was magnificent), and Crash (Ebert liked it for its daring, Siskel didn't, it left him cold). I could cry, because a show, probably from the week before, didn't tape right and I only know what all they reviewed from the ending section where they say "thumbs up, thumbs down" to the films. Based on that, here's what I missed: Private Parts (thumbs up from both), Hard Eight ( !!) (thumbs up from both), Donnie Brasco (thumbs up from both), Smilla's Sense of Snow (thumbs up from both), Booty Call (thumbs up from both!! though they both seemed a tad embarrassed), and their Video Pick of the week was Bound, which they both loved and thought that Howard Stern should go rent posthaste. That was a rare week when they both liked all of the films! Siskel & Ebert got me into so many great films, ranging from Say Amen, Somebody to Louie Bluie to Sling Blade. I disagreed with them (one or the other or both) about movies they didn't like, several times, sometimes violently (I never forgave them for trashing the exquisite Return To Oz), but I always trusted them when they liked something. What a great team they were. May they never be forgotten.
