    Very bummed to hear about this. I rarely agreed with Ebert's reviews but they were always so well written (and humorous) that even if he was trashing a movie that I loved, I could never be mad at the guy.

    I've read several of his books over the past couple of years, I particularly enjoyed his autobiography (which I believe is called "Life Itself"), which describes his battle with cancer in vivid detail... and even with a couple of near-death experiences under his belt and having been robbed of the ability to speak by his disease, he was still very positive and full of love for film and for the written word throughout the book. It was a very humbling read and made me admire the man even more than I already did.

    He'll be missed. R.I.P. Mr. Ebert.

    I'm pretty sure that Roger Ebert was my introduction ah, a few years ago, to movie reviews.  He's at least partly responsible for people thinking critically about the movies. He will be missed.

    I think he struck and ideal balance between depth and irreverence. He will be missed.
