So what do you think of Roger Ebert movie reviewer?
I found out his reviews some two or three years ago and I loved them. They’re knowledgeable without being pretentious and even when I disagree with him totally I usually can get an idea about wether or not I’ll like a movie despite Ebert’s own likes and dislikes.
He is very famous (or infamous) in this board. I’m not american so I would like to know why.
People around here seem to cite him as an authority in movie matters but they don’t seem to respect him. Why?
Some people around here say he’s seen better days. When and why?
And in an unrelated note, which other movie critics that are any good can I find in the web? Cervaise has a great informative site but it slowed down a lot in number and frequency of reviews and the ones that are added are usually of obscure movies I haven’t/won’t/can’t see.
I’d appreciate having grammar/spelling mistakes pointed out.
