Roger Ebert - A Remembrance

I grew up in the era of "At the Movies." I loved that show. I loved those two guys fighting over what they thought about each movie. I loved that they looked like regular guys. I loved that they loved the movies they were talking about with such passion. In a time before everything was decided by a tomato, a thumb up or thumb down meant something important.
