I’m of the opinion that Roger Ebert is the most insightful modern critic across any medium. When I come back from the theater after seeing a bad film, the first thing I do is read Ebert’s print review to validate the experience. The man is a great, great writer. I always forget about Gene Siskel because… well, because he is no longer alive. Shameful on my part, really. I loved watching At The Movies as a kid just for the banter between Ebert & Siskel. I wish they included the more venomous go betweens in the actual show.
After your done watching the clip, read Ebert’s companion blog post and be thankful for things.
