Back before movie reviews could be summed up in 13 characters or less, there were two gentleman who stood atop the peak of film criticism. Simply put, *no one* could rip a movie a new a-hole like Siskel and Ebert.
Goodbye to the man who could combine education, appreciation, and humor better than most anyone in the world of entertainment.
Is this the death of unnecessary 3D? Please?
Maybe he should sign up for Kickstarter.

Critic Roger Ebert sticks his downward thumb right into the audience, saying it’s stupid to pay top dollar for movies designed to give you a headache.
Movie reviews won’t be the only thing Roger Ebert will be premiering on his New PBS show ‘Ebert Presents at the Movies’. Ebert, who lost his lower jaw to thyroid cancer in 2006, will be showing off his new facial prosthesis on his new public television program.
Roger Ebert’s “At The Movies” redux doesn’t launch until next Friday, but that’s no reason why you shouldn’t get a taste today.
We know that if the ghost of Gene Siskel were able to speak with us from beyond the grave, he would take the opportunity to once again mock Ebert for giving a positive review to Home Alone 3. We miss you, Gene.
Roger Ebert isn't one to let a lack of a jaw stop him from jawing on about what movies do and don't suck ass. With "At The Movies" officially off-the-air as of August 14th, Ebert has unveiled his newest program, "Roger Ebert Presents 'At The Movies'." It's pretty much "At The Movies" but with occasional appearances from the Roger Ebert Cyborg.
Appearing as the show's main critics are Christy Lemire and Elvis Mitchell. And if Ebert's sagging chin flesh pouch and Elvis's dreadlocks don't do it for you, Kim Morgan will also appear in weekly segments.
It'll be like when the hot weather girl shows up on that fat guy's show on Telemundo. (Sun Times)
Yesterday I told you about Roger Ebert's miracle voice computer that he is premiering on today's episode of Oprah. It's understandable that you may not be able to watch the episode due to your busy work schedule or presence of testicles. With that in mind we have this sneak peek. It's actually really amazing how accurate the voice sounds and it's completely heart-warming to see how happy Ebert is to have it back. Though if he were frowning, we would have no way of knowing. The science for that doesn't exist yet. (Videogum)
Opes helps Roger Ebert promote his new line of novelty "weird beards."After losing his jaw and subsequently his voice to cancer, it seemed that Roger Ebert would never be able to speak again. Thanks to CereProc, the famed critic has regained his voice, and is no longer forced to communicate using only 'thumbs up' or 'thumbs down' gestures.The Scottish company has been able to capture audio from Ebert's DVD commentaries to create a system where he can type and listeners hear a voice that sounds like him. From Yahoo:The new voice, which Ebert calls "Roger Jr.," will be heard predicting Oscar winners on a segment of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" airing Tuesday."Yes, 'Roger Jr.' needs to be smoother in tone and steadier in pacing, but the little rascal is good," Ebert wrote. "To hear him coming from my own computer made me ridiculously happy."I'm happy for Roger Ebert because it must be completely frustrating to lose the ability to communicate, but this isn't exactly new technology. In fact, the disembodied voice of Arnold Schwarzenegger has been asking Chinese take-out workers "Who is your daddy and what does he do," for the better part of the last fifteen years. (Yahoo)
By Roger Ebert*There is an ugly scene in Squirt In My Gape 3 that I want to tell you about. A young woman played by Bobbi Star has just had her gaping anus filled with both male and female ejaculate. We see the girl, pretty yet exhausted, contorting her body in such away as to avoid spilling the fluids. The cameraman moves in to give the audience the requisite close-up of the genetic ooze she is holding ever so precariously.?? We expect the scene to end, but it does not. The audience is left waiting for what seems like an eternity. Then, without warning, a bubble begins to form.
