RIP, Roger Ebert

After a long off and on battle with cancer, Roger Ebert passed away today. I didn't always agree with Ebert (particularly not on the question of video games and the artistic merits thereof), but I always wanted to hear what he had to say about a movie, and enjoyed his writings on many other topics. He was one of our greatest living writers, and his contributions to our culture will be greatly missed.

If you're ever looking for something to read, you could do a lot worse than surf his review archives for his Great Movie reviews, or the reviews of movies he hated -- no one could take apart a bad movie better than Roger Ebert. His site is down right now, probably due to heavy traffic, but come back in a couple of days and take a look.
