RIP Roger Ebert


So I guess if honesty is the foundation of this blog, I should admit when I learn things I really should have known in the first place. For instance, that Roger Ebert has been battling cancer since 2002. It’s a great loss for the movies today, folks. Let’s raise a figurative (or literal) glass to one of the most influential film critics of our time, and smile at the fact that he and Gene Siskel only “hugged once, in 1985, when they appeared on’The Tonight Show’ with Johnny Carson.”

UPDATE: This is adorable.
