We are so sad to say Roger Ebert has passed.
The legendary film critic and author struggled valiantly through several years of cancer, and recently announced a recurrence.
It seems he finally succumbed today.
Ebert and his thumb were famous for strong, loud opinions. He gave them for the Chicago Sun-Times for 46 years.
He never stopped writing his reviews even when hosting his famous show with late partner Gene Siskel and later Richard Roeper.
Roger Ebert's film criticism was more than simple movie reviews. Many of his critiques are used in film classes to this day.
He elevated criticism to an art form and films to literature.
Everyone who loves movies has suffered a major loss today.
