Rest in Peace: Roger Ebert

Today we find ourselves saying goodbye to a legend to the world of film. Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel guided film criticism to the mainstream and, in doing so, created the atmosphere that allows film bloggers to exist. There are few people on this Earth that loved film as much as he (writing 300 reviews a year right to the very end) and he will be greatly missed.

I leave you with my favorite quote from Ebert:

"The insight of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is that, at the end of the day, our memories are all we really have, and when they're gone, we're gone."

You will never be forgotten.
