Roger Ebert Passes Away

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

roger ebert passed away

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.

Everyone from Miley Cyrus to Neil Patrick Harris is giving their opinion on the death of Chris Guerra. Hot on the pursuit of Justin Bieber's car, the paparazzo lost his life following a fatal blow from an oncoming car as he tried to cross Sepulveda during a traffic stop.

We even dished some more of our own feelings on The Talk, offering opinion of Bieber himself, but now we've learned that even film critic Roger Ebert wants to chime in!

It began with a tweet:

Last month, we were sad to learn that Roger Ebert's newest show Ebert Presents At The Movies was most likely on it's way out due to lack of funding.

As we mentioned before, Roger and his wife had been footing the bill for the show themselves, but they've realized that they can no longer afford to do so.

everybody loves the muppets

We knew this would be a success!

The reviews are officially in for The Muppets…and they're overwhelmingly positive!

Here's what some of the top critics are saying about it:

"The Muppet franchise is revitalized with The Muppets, a funny, wickedly self-aware musical that opens by acknowledging they've outlived their shelf life." - Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun-Times)

"It's time to see the Muppets, it's time to see this show." - Richard Roeper (RichardRoeper.com)

"For kids, blessedly unironic by nature until wised up by nurture, the movie is just shiny, funny, and filled with songs…" - Lisa Schwarzbaum (Entertainment Weekly)

"The challenge Disney has with The Muppets is to show a new generation what the fuss was all about. Slam-dunk. The movie slaps a smile on your face you won't want to wipe off." - Peter Travers (Rolling Stone)

Just wonderful! We LOVE The Muppets! We LOVE the newest muppet Walter! AND we love OUR Muppet!!!!!

Drop what you're doing, and go see the movie! NOW!

Roger Ebert Needs A Holiday Miracle Or His Show Goes!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

Roger Ebert Ebert Presents Funding

Roger Ebert and his wife have been funding his newest show, Ebert Presents At The Movies, since it debuted in January, but they've found themselves running out of extra cash!

The new show, hosted by Christy Lemire and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
, airs on public television stations and offers its audience an intelligent look at upcoming features. Rather than only have marketing sway your $15, this show provides an insightful look at the latest films.

Unfortunately, Ebert's dream of sharing challenging opinions on film is about to see its final days as a television series unless a miracle happens.
