The best movie critic of all time, and not just because he reviewed films. He wrote about films, he wrote films, he taught about films. My heart is heavy just writing about him right now. Thanks Mr. Ebert for your insights and enlightenment.

Roger Ebert was one of a kind. He was by far the most respected and probably the most honest critic in the industry...
May God rest his soul in peace.

Roger Ebert gave me more to think about film than any other person in the industry and continued to do that up to this tragic day. God bless, Mr. Ebert.

Man... I loved his reviews, and more times than not, completely agreed with him. I will sorely miss reading his witty and poignant entries.

Sad to see you go. I could always count on you for a good pick. Thanks Mr. Ebert

I think I only agreed with his verdicts 50% of the time but always found his critiques to be insightful and well reasoned, even when I differed with his rating. His work and his style inspired me as a critic, and his knowledge and beautiful writing ability were truly exemplary. You will be missed, Mr Ebert.

I loved his reviews R.I.P.

I grew up with Siskel and Ebert, even going back to when they were on PBS and had the live Skunk they would bring out for "Stinker of the week" etc...Later, of course, the duo would go to network TV and Siskel and Ebert with their "Thumbs up Thumbs down" became the most well known movie critics in the world during the 80's and 90's...In his later days, after the death of Gene Siskel, Ebert didnt appear much on television and mainly just wrote, but he became a pretty big influence on me with the writings and blog he did on film...Over the last few years as I have gone from being an over 30 film student and microbudget filmmaker, I learned a lot about filmmaking from the academic knowledge of films that Roger Ebert had...he had a good influence in this country regarding cinema as an art form, and for that he will surely be missed. Much thanks, Roger.

A sad day. At least he died doing what he really loved. RIP
We disagreed on many issues regarding movies, but his importance and influence as a film critic is without doubt.

I waited for his reviews. this is a sad day, he is someone I'm gonna miss as long as I watch movies. he was a star of Hollywood. sometimes his reviews were more fun and insightful than the movies themselves.

You were and allways will be a great inspiration to all movie lovers!

Although I didn't always agree with him, his was a critical voice I respected and he always had worthwhile insights into films of all kinds. I watched many movies I wouldn't have otherwise, because he gave them the famous "thumbs up." His was a unique viewpoint I will miss.
Ebert was one of my go to critics whenever I wanted to see if a new release was worth seeing or not. While I disagreed with his opinion from time to time, I always found his reviews to be thoughtful and intelligent and his passion for film readily apparent.

Roger will be sadly missed.

Hopefully his pain has ended. He and Siskel will be the rock stars of critics. For your work, I give you thumbs up, brotha!

You Will be missed
He is and forever will be my favorite movie critic. Whenever I want to know how good a movie is I go straight to his review first before anyone else's. Really sad, need a hanky.

first always. and sometimes i'd just make lists of movies and go down the list seeing what he thought about them. i. am. sad
