    I know how much his reviews are loved here...thought I'd pass this along. Sorry if I'm D_Bing.


    Film critic Roger Ebert, who has battled cancer in recent years, was in serious but stable condition Sunday following an emergency operation to repair complications from a previous cancer surgery.

    Chicago Sun-Times columnist Richard Roeper — co-host of the "Ebert and Roeper" movie review show — told the newspaper that Ebert's vital signs appeared to be good after the hours-long operation.

    "Roger is a fighter, and I have every confidence and hope that he has thousands of movie reviews ahead of him," Roeper said.

    Ebert's family told WLS-TV, one of his employers, that they expected him to make a full recovery.

    Hopefully, his surgery was - and will be - two thumbs up.

    I've had the pleasure to meet Ebert a couple times... Very nice and very short man...

    I hope he's well. He and Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) are by far my favorite film critics.

    Wow, two of the best writers, he and Gammons, so close to one another.

    Prayers for both.

    Has Vincent Gallo made a statement yet?

    (Sorry, couldn't resist. Get well soon Roger, if only so we can read more reviews like the brilliant Deuce Bigalow 2 slam job)

    While it hasn't affected his writing, that I can tell, it has been a little uncomfortable to see ebert on his show lately ...
