Legendary Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert passed away yesterday at the age of 70 after a long, difficult battle with both thyroid and salivary gland cancer. Most famous for his iconic review show with fellow critic Gene Siskel, "Siskel and Ebert At The Movies," Ebert won a Pulitzer Prize for film criticism in 1975. He was an insanely prolific critic with unrelenting wit and no qualms about trashing films which he found to be truly offensive. These are seven of our favorite quotes from some 'two-thumbs-down' reviews by Ebert over the years.
