I'll miss you, Roger.

I don't have a lot to say that hasn't been said. There have been some truly beautiful words written about him, which he is so deserving of. I think it's something that I might need a while to really get my thoughts together about. Especially to be relevant to this blog at all.

I'm going to miss him so much. Roger Ebert was a really great man - a fantastic film great, a unbelievable writer, a genuinely good person who cared deeply for others, and an awesome inspiration.  
Had one for Ebert last night. Not sure if it was as good as he remembered it to be - but as someone who didn't eat meat for the last 13 years and only started again about a week or so ago...that was a damn good burger. 


  1. He was a beautiful man. Part of the reason he remains my favourite critic despite a leaning towards more highly intellectual critics is the way he embraced the internet and allowed everyone access to almost fifty years of essays and film criticism. I can't think of a single other critic of his status who has done the same.

  2. Please tell us, Mandy: what is your favorite movie of all time that he despised so much?
