    I was lucky enough to watch and analyze Pulp Fiction and Silence of the Lambs with Ebert (and a couple hundred other people) back in the 1990s and it was such a thrill to get to do that with one of the best film critics of all-time.

    I hope for nothing but the best for him. This is very sad news.

    Just a great writer all around.
    Ebert is an American treasure.

    I have his book. Need to read it. May start tonight. I love baseball season for a lot of reasons, one of them is I read a lot more with the game on in the background.

    Cancer blows, as if we needed a reminder. I've never known it to come back gently when it comes a second time.

    Ebert's "Two Weeks in the Midday Sun," his journal of the 1987 Cannes Film Festival, is a great little look behind the scenes of the event itself and the surrounding drama that accompanies it on the French Riviera.

    Had seen the news early this morning. Is very sad. Ebert is the best of movie reviewers and courageous in facing his illness.
