Roger Ebert:1942-2013

A legend passed away today. Roger Ebert taught me to love movies. He taught me what movies should be. I didn’t agree with all of his opinions, but from his reviews I could almost always get a good idea whether a movie was right for me. I loved that he always made the effort to review the movie that was actually made, and not the movie he wished had been made. He judged a movie on what it was trying to be, not on some generic idea of what every movie should be.
