The Genius of Roger Ebert

Posted by Eliot Weinstein on June 23, 2005

I read Roger Ebert’s movie reviews every week. I read the reviews of many movies that I never intend to see, because there are many movie reviewers, but only one Ebert. His formidable writing skills never cease to impress me, whether he is feeling spiritual or vindictive. In addition to his superbly-styled prose, his movie recommendations and his understanding of Hollywood and modern American culture are unequaled.

If anyone needs additional testament as to the genius of Roger Ebert, read his review of Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.

Now, for the purposes of comparison (and to prove that he is not mean-spirited), read his review of a good movie, such as Raging Bull or Dr. Strangelove.

The man truly deserves his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
