Beloved film critic, Roger Ebert (1942-2013), known for his thumbs-up/thumbs-down film reviews as well as for his partnership with Gene Siskel has died today at the age of 70! He’s the first celebrity to die this year whom I was a fan of!
Fun Fact: He and his professional partner Gene Siskel lent their voices and likenesses to an episode of “The Critic”.
He will be greatly missed and his death is a big thumbs-down!

R.I.P. to him! My thoughts are with his family.
I remember Siskel and Ebert’s show. I used to read Ebert’s movie reviews quite often. He will be missed.
He will be. One review of his that I was shocked at was when he gave a “Thumbs Up” to “The Black Cauldron”, lol.
I will always miss this man. He was a very intelligent person. BTW, have you seen the Nostalgia Critic’s Siskel and Ebert tribute and/or Farewell to Roger Ebert video(s)?
Yes I have. I loved the Siskel and Ebert tribute and the Farewell was quite touching.
