In Praise of Roger Ebert
Thinking more on his latest review, I’ve decided that more Americans need to be made aware of Roger Ebert’s undeniable awesomeness. Here, for example, is his memorable assessment of “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo” (“Speaking in my official capacity as a Pulitzer Prize winner, Mr. Schneider, your movie sucks.”) Commenter Ryan points us to his equally excellent take on “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” (no relation to this blog, of course). Here’s his public smackdown of noted sportsdouche Jay Marrioti. Did I mention he has a blog? And that he takes the time to read his readers’ blogs? What a man.
