So sad, just last week he put out a statement about the cancer coming back and he was going to take some time off and watch some of his faves.

Rest In Peace.

They must have known how aggressive this round was for him to have just made a statement about taking some time off

He called his time off "a leave of presence". What a lovely way to think of it.

I remember every Saturday night at 7:30pm I would tune in to watch Siskel and Egbert for what movies to look out for.

I loved it when they debated each other and they rarely agreed on a thumbs up/thumbs down they would argue and then turn to the camera about what's coming next week.

Hope he and Siskel are watching some classics somewhere together.

He fought hard for a long time.

So sad. I, too, have good memories of them both. Didnt they start of on Entertainment Tonight back in the '80's?

R.I.P. Two thumbs up!

Oh no, I'm so saddened by this. I always felt like Roger Ebert was a member of my family. Smart, humorous but kind, fond of old comfy sweaters and armchairs... just good people.
