Okay, I’ve mentioned that I’m a big Roger Ebert fan before, right? He’s my favorite critic. I think a lot of “serious” moviegoers don’t think of him as legitimate, since his image is so tied up with television and the whole “thumbs” thing. But if you read some of his written reviews, you’ll find that he’s one of the smartest critics out there. You might not always agree with him, but his writing is always witty and entertaining. Often after reading some of his archives, I find myself wishing that I could know what Ebert thought about some other things: politics, music, television, etc. Fortunately, in recent years he’s actually started writing about these things as well. Now he’s taking on music piracy, God bless ‘im. I especially liked the ending. Man, am I an Ebert groupie or what? (Link courtesy of Matt.)

  1. Ebert is da man. I tend to avoid him on tv now, but I’m a devout reader. The guy can snark with the best of ’em

  2. Oh no- what next? Ebert fan-fic from Howie?

    No, he’s cool. He does have good written stuff. He comes across well in text – not so disagreeable, just thoughtful. I enjoy him. Oh, except he liked Joyride (talk to Kelly MAC about this).

  3. Hmm… Ebert fan-fic… Time to do some work on my other, not-so-family-friendly blog, methinks. 🙂
