R.I.P. Roger Ebert Posted on Thursday, April 4th, 2013 at 12:46 pm. PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple Sad day. Shawn King As a small town kid in Canada, Siskel and Ebert kindled my love of good movies. Mother Hydra Ebert’s voice will be missed, that man could write. Jim H Yes, sad. I always turned to his reviews first. He seemed to echo my likes and dislikes. But more than that, over the years after reading someone for so long, you start to feel like you know them. He will be missed. Moeskido We are all deprived for having lost his presence. Hell of a cultural critic.
