R.I.P. Roger Ebert

One of my favorite movie reviewers and authors has passed away. Roger Ebert who has been battling cancer for a number of years passed away today at the age of 70. Roger came on to the national scene after his movie review show with Gene Siskel in the Chicago area.

Roger lost the use of his voice a few years ago but still review movies. As early as this week he announced that his cancer came back and he was only go to review movies he wanted to see.

Below is some great clips of Robert Ebert who had some great and intense on screen moments with Siskel.
