Roger Ebert (1942-2013)

Film criticism is an interesting thing. We love critics for sitting through and reporting on the stuff that most of us common folk wouldn't touch with a 20 foot pole (documentaries, torture porn, foreign films), but if they pan a movie that we really like, they become the enemy.

Still, especially in the case of the latter, we're curious to know what they thought about a given movie. We've lost one of our finest (and arguably, most well-known) film critics. From the reviews I've read, Roger Ebert had a way with crafting his opinions (the opening paragraph of his Freddy Got Fingered review still cracks me up).

I really hope his last movie (watched or reviewed) was a good one. Farewell.
