Wow, that sucks. He was a really interesting man and his taste in movies, while not always perfect, was really impressive. He will be missed.

Sad news! While I didn't always agree with his reviews, they were always worth a read. RIP

While I have never really been into watching or reading critiques of anything (unless they are humorous ones like the ones on That Guy with the glasses.com), its hard for me to think of a time where I haven't heard about one of Ebert's reviews. Its sad to see him go, Rest in Peace my friend.

As a movie reviewer I hated this guy. Most of his career he was out of touch with how films connect with their audiences and he looked upon the masses with the pretentious eye of a movie snob. His comments on video games were completely idiotic even though he tried to smooth that over. However, as his cancer made people realize after he couldn't do TV anymore, he was a tremendous writer. After he focused more time on his writing he became one of the best writers in media that I have ever seen. I didn't agree at all with what he said generally, but his skill was extraordinary and his fighting spirit excellent. I hate to see anyone go through what he went through and I hate to see anyone die but in some ways the cancer he fought made him do thinks and do thinks well that we had not done before. That is called truly making the best out of a terrible situation. He fought the good fight.
