RIP Roger Ebert

Today, after a long battle with cancer, Roger Ebert, arguably the most important and influential film critic to have ever lived has died. Speaking from the UK, I have very little direct experience of Ebert but through reading his reviews online and watching old Siskel and Ebert clips on YouTube you see a man who adored films in every way, shape and form and not even having the bottom of his jaw removed would prevent him from sharing his film knowledge with the world. After the jump are a few of my personal favourite Ebert reviews on Siskel and Ebert along with an excellent tribute to him done by Doug ‘Nostalgia Critic’ Walker.

Roger Ebert: you shall be missed.
