My favorite is the North review. I don't even recall that movie...but his use of 'hated hated hated...' cracks me up.

I bet we would have had a lot of snarky laughs together. But yeah, I don't agree with all his reviews either.

I didn't always agree with Ebert, but I generally knew whether I wanted to see a movie after reading his review. And that's what you want a review for.

I'm not sure who I'll be reading now.

AO Scott has some great reviews. He's very witty and can be quite sarcastic when he needs to be.

My favorite:
This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels."

Just this morning I read an article on Ebert's review of "The Brown Bunny", (here) directed by and starring Vincent Gallo.

It was quite entertaining (the article/review).

I wonder how he'd have reviewed the movie from his script for "More Valley Of The Dolls"?

There is a secret that has been kept from man 2,000 years
There is a secret that has been kept from man 2,000 years
And that secret is that there are only
twelve people on the earth at any given time
That there are only twelve people on the earth at any given time

And these people have been symbolized
Down through the ages of mankind, by many symbols

They were called:
Twelve tribes of Israel
Twelve sons of Jacob
Twelve gates of Heaven
Twelve inches in a foot
Twelve months to the year
Twelve men on the jury
Twelve days of Christmas
Twelve disciples of Jesus Christ
Twelve manners of fruit on the tree by the side of the river
Good for the healing of all nations
Good for the healing of all nations

And these people are
And these people are:
Aries, who is… I am, ain’t I?
Taurus, who is… I have, don’t I?
Gemini, who is… I think, I think…
I think so much I wish I could stop thinking
Cancer, who is… I feel, I feel,
and there are no words to describe how I feel
Leo, who is… I will, o’er my will
Virgo, who is… I analyze, I analyze
Libra, who is… I balance, I balance, I balance
between those who know and those who do not know
Scorpio, who is… I desire, I desire, I desire…
Sagittarius, who is… I see, I see… I see so much in
what I’m doing I cannot finish what I’m doing
Capricorn, who is… I use, I use… I use all of
my experience in order to survive
Aquarius, who is… I know, I know…
why do I know when no one around me knows what I know
Pisces, who is… I believe, I believe…
or there is nothing for me to believe in

These are the twelve people who inherit the earth
You are one of them and there are only eleven others
And if you get to know the eleven others
You will be able to get along with everyone all over the world…
all over the world

Damn.

Wow. That's some scary synchronicity. I was just listening to the Woodstock album on Sunday. And I hadn't listened to it for about a year.

Steve, my ex-housemate - said he was a nightmare to work with.
A real "never work with your heroes" situation.
But of course he wasn't really working with him (people on his level have praised his generosity and geniality) but working for him. It's possible he treated Steve like an lowly employee and he resented that.

Then again, this is the man who gave me 24 hours notice to leave his house (Steve, not Mel Smith) so it is completely possible he was a bad judge of character.

I'm sad too.
With Geoffrey Perkins dying young I worry that it's my generation now, the so-called alternative generation, that will start to be picked off.
