"You slide down in your seat and make yourself comfortable. On the screen in front of you, the movie image appears—enormous and overwhelming. If the movie is a good one, you allow yourself to be absorbed in its fantasy, and its dreams become part of your memories"Roger Ebert wrote those words in 1980 for The Atlantic magazine, a love letter to the medium that became his employer: the movies. After a 46-year tenure as film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times, several decades hosting a hugely influential television show, a landmark Pulitzer Prize, and countless thumbs in both directions, Ebert died Thursday at age 70.

Roger Ebert, Movie Critic of the Mainstream, Dies at 70 - NYTimes.com:
We wake up one day and find that Roger Ebert, the Ted Copol of movie critiques, is passed away. Here is the website to find many Ebert reviews. Sadly, he won't be giving us his cinema wit or wisdom from this time on.
Unless someone gives Ebert life after death, we will miss his thumbs up ... OH WAIT WHAT IS THIS?

"Now the famed critic is in a new jurisdiction, where he can see the blessings poured out on God's humble servants in heaven, from his seat of eternal torment and sorrow in Hell! It's too late for the fool Roger Ebert! WBC will continue to bind those who still live in Doomed america to God's eternal laws and Word, so you, like Roger, are without excuse!"That is what is being said by the Westboro Church Gang, as they talk ill about the dead. Nice going W-boro Dissidents, especially now that Roger Ebert can't offer you his rebuttal. He's dead.
These boneheads call him a "fag enabler." What the hell does that mean? Why does this issue, which isn't an issue, create such misanthropic and seething, egotistical, hatred of humanity?
Ebert might respond to Westboro Baptist wankers this way:
"You misguided cynical, carper, caviler, detractors, disbelievers, doubters, doubting Thomas's, egoist, egotistic, flouters, misanthropic, misogamist, misogynist, mockers, pessimistic, satirist, scoffers, skeptical, sneerers, unbelievers ... would make a wonderful movie project. Two thumbs up."
