    I know he died a few days ago now, but maybe some of you didn't hear about it.

    I don't read many reviews, but I do sometimes use my imdb app to look at metascores of movies, and I paid the most attention to his reviews. Pretty much agree with 95% of his reviews. I rarely like something he doesn't and vice versa.

    I saw a picture of his face all F'd up and it freaked me out. R.I.P.

    FYI, Scarecrow, he gave Django Unchained a 100 and Ted an 88, so you can suck it.

    I do have to say though, I wouldnt have given Ted a higher rating than 60... same old tasteless comedy that hollywood has been stamping out for the past 5 years. Like all of those **** movies by Will Ferrell. The only good comedy he was in was Old School.

    You lost all credibility when you said Old School was Will Ferrell's best.

    Old School sucks.

    Anchorman and The Other Guys (very underrated) are his best two.

    I wasn't crazy about Ted. I might have laughed once during the entire film. I'm a bit of a comedy snob... Good comedies are much tougher to make than action flicks or dramas.

    I've always really enjoyed Ebert. Many critics only goal seems to be making the most bombastic quotable reviews possible... rather than actually just reviewing a film in it's proper context. Ebert clearly loved film... when reviewing films, he did so with that specific movie's viewer in mind

    I loved this piece on Ebert by Deadspin's Will Leitch

    Many familiar with his TV persona are unaware of whar a great writer he was. Here's a collection of some Roger's more memorable reviews...

    I'm a comedy snob for the most part too... but I loved Ted.

    I HATE most modern comedies.

    I'm gonna have to say NO to just about everything you said there.

    Old School was funny.

    Other guys was mildly funny. Completely forgettable. I saw it in theaters, and there's hardly a memorable thing about it. i would deem it "worth the watch" but it was nothing special at all.

    Anchorman was funny and quotable, but it's gotten tired from repetition.

    Never saw Ted.

    Your on crack. Anchorman had one funny bit about the sex panther cologne.
