Even through I disagreed with many of his views I will dearly miss one of the great movie reviewers of all time.

RIP

Like or hate the man's opinions, he was well spoken and influential in the world of film criticism... Sad news.

RIP

Very sad news, one of the few reviewers i actually followed. He was ill for a very long time yet kept up with all new releases, just shows the mans passion.

Easily the most influential, and well known movie critic there ever was, or will be.

RIP.

Like most people here, I didn't always agree with Ebert's opinions.... but I did always respect it. There is no denying the impact he had on the way movies are to be critiqued and for that he will always be remembered. R.I.P.

Sad news. His letter to Werner Herzog is my favourite piece he's ever written.

Disagreed with his reviews a lot of the time, but still gotta give him props for being as successful as he was. R.I.P.

I didn't care for or respect his opinion on film but his stuff was always well written.

RIP Ebert.
