  1. Being from the UK I’m not that familiar with Robert Ebert, but I found that tribute to him rather touching. Is the guy that saved him a seat a colleague that died previously?

    • Yeah, looks like Gene Siskel (former critic/partner) in movie Heaven with Roger Ebert. Very nice!

      • Yeah, it’s nicely done. I’m not a heaven believer, but the idea that a person ends up where they belong is surely appealing. I can hear that old theme song playing, and see him wandering down the isle to the seat next to his old friend. Rather poignant, though he’d probably criticize the cloying cliches and generic sentiment. (Sometimes he was rather brutally harsh to the art he observed, after all.). I really dig it, and it suits me fine.

  2. i can’t believe it. one of the most reasonable critic. roger ebert just died. and rex reed is still alive.

  3. Two things…

    First, I never liked Ebert.

    Second, Lady Deadpool should be blonde, not that I’m complaining mind you.

    • Then why even comment? Rude much? Theres a lot to comment about, yet you single out Ebert and Lady Deadpool as some means to get attention. Well it worked and now your internet activity for the day Im assuming has reached it goal of nothingness.

      • Way to be a dick “Seriously”

        • and mocking a dead guy isn’t?

          • Yeah, geez. Maybe you can show up at funerals with a snack in your hand and tap people on the shoulder to say “I never even liked that guy.” through a mouthful of food, and wander off. Thanks for sharing. Would’ve been more tactful to bag on a sick old man on just about any other day than the one he died on. People are actually sad right now, so keep your salt for a conversation and stop spitting on graves. It’s tacky.

  4. Wow, the Star Wars into Darkness mash up was perfect! Who ever made it, well done! :)

    • I know, right? Really cool :)

      • That was cool, for sure, but seems like more of a biting critique than a fan tribute. It probably IS a tribute, but I can’t help noticing that this nearly-seemless transposition is not the result of franchise brilliance or weird cooincidence. This is a clear sign of way too many similarities and obvious choices made in both series. It’s one of the reasons that Abrams’ Star Wars-ification of Trek is not entirely a good thing, even if you like the movies. It’s also a reason that having the same guy helm 2 or 3 Trek films while dedicating himself to Star Wars is a really questionable move. I hope for several great films, but worry that the same exhausting tedium of the low points will permeate both franchises for many years. An example: that trek scene with Kirk and Bones running off the cliff. It is presumably the first shot of them in the film, and given the stilted dialogue and overly swashbuckling nature of it all, I’d like to think they wrote it and shot it first as well. It’s a clumsy way to distract us all from the weak writing and acting and lack of meaningful content by overwhelming our senses. It’s silly and juvenile, and would fit well into a story for six year olds.

        I have high hopes for the film, but that moment reminded me of the dwindling returns that the Pirates movies displayed. No substance, just flash and style and the sleazy feeling that we are paying these characters to be our old friends, instead of the natural reactions we get to great new scenes between Kirk and Bones. Hopefully there will be a bunch of those, too, and hopefully Abrams can tell that scenes like the opening of Star Wars 3 are a mixture of great and horrendous. The finest spaceship battle scene ever, (maybe), and it gets ruined by dialogue a student would get a bad grade for, and an actor would get fired for. (or at least the actor could use another take, and the dialogue another rewrite.). These are delicate projects, and just winging it while you listen to your heart is not going to fly. Nor will isolating yourself from group oversight or dissenting opinions. Does Abrams realize what happened with Lucas? He got his way, and we got The Phantom Menace. I hope he busts his ass trying to make these films work, and I hope he succeeds. Mainstream popcorn fair is an unacceptable standard for these movies. The worst moments of the reboot, including deleted scenes, were so terrible that I fear he doesn’t have any slam dunks to deliver. The best moments give me hope though.

        Anyway, good mash up, regardless of intent.

  5. Then why even comment? Rude much? Theres a lot to comment about, yet you single out Ebert and Lady Deadpool as some means to get attention. Well it worked and now your internet activity for the day Im assuming has reached it goal of nothingness.

  6. Awesome Siskel and Ebert tribute. RIP.
