Roger Ebert Two Thumbs UpLegendary film critic and Chicago writer has lost his bout with Cancer at the age of 70. Many of you may not know who Roger Ebert is. In the age of internet and customer reviews, you may not have any reason too know who he is. But to those that can remember the days before smartphones and the internet he was the voice of reason to see a movie. Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel were the cinematic critics who painted a picture of a movie for viewers to decide whether or not they would see it.

Beginning in 1996, he wrote a Great Movies series of individual reviews of what he deems to be the most important films in history. This list and his associated reviews were expanded to include over 300 movies. Starting in 1999, he hosted the annual Roger Ebert’s Film Festival in Champaign, Illinois.
His memoir Life Itself is a lovely read to capture the life of Mr. Ebert and America of yester year.
