comment
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 a genuine love for motion pictures. These are seven of our favorite quotes from some 'two-thumbs-up' reviews by Ebert over the years.
