RIP Roger Ebert

With a heavy heart I must report that at the age of 70, one of the most well known reviewers of our time, Roger Ebert has passed away.

He lived a full life, having won a Pulitzer Prize in '75 (the first film critic to do so), written over 15 books with articles in over 200 newspapers in the U.S. and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. There are very few people who haven't read his reviews and fewer still whom haven't heard of him at all.

For more on the life and death of Roger Ebert I refer you to the New York Times:

RIP Roger Ebert, and may you have all the "Citizen Kane" and Haagen-Dazs ice cream you could ever want.
