Legendary Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert passed away this afternoon at age 70 after an extended battle with thyroid cancer. Ebert leaves behind a wife and a legacy as one of the great all-time American writers, not just film critics, and in his last blog post, he thanked his readers one final time. "So on this day of reflection I say again, thank you for going on this journey with me. I'll see you at the movies." It was our pleasure, Mr. Ebert.
Above, we've embedded one of the best clips on the internet: a hilarious off-air back-and-forth between Ebert and good buddy Gene Siskel as they rehearse a promo for their show "Siskel and Ebert at the Movies" in the mid-'80s. Their rapport is biting but affectionate, almost in a brotherly way, and it's fun to watch. Now they're together again, likely rekindling over how much of a piece of s**t that "Tyler Perry's Temptation" was.
