Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel Defend Star Wars Against Uptight Douchebag (1983)

Roger Ebert deeply appreciated and celebrated both high culture and pop culture, and he did so with great wit and honesty. I watched him on TV, and I’ve been reading his reviews (and only his reviews) for more than 20 years. His words and his unrehearsed demeanor are part of my life, and I’ll miss him.

    Siskel and Ebert were a huge part of our childhood. Back in the day we didn’t have the huge amount of media available at an instant that we have now. Like many of you I looked forward to watching these guys talk about the movies I wanted to see. I did not always agree with them, but it was neat getting to see the clips and listen to these two guys talk movies. How great would it have been to sit down and talk movies with these guys.

    As an aside, I liked Spacehunter as well. Great movie!

    That Simon is a moron…I think time is on our side in that these are great movies.
