What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Man that sucks.

Did anyone else first think of the inflammatory comments Ebert said about Ryan Dunn though? Maybe it was just me..

I didn't always agree with his views but there's a reason I've had his newsletter for the last 8 years. Rip

Yeah, I often disagreed with him, but he was one of the very few critics I've ever been able to stomach.

This is sad to hear. I'd have to think deeper on all the critics that I occasionally read the reviews of, but off the top of my head, I'd have to say that he may very well be the only one that I liked and respected his opinion. Damn shame. I knew this day would be coming sooner rather than later. Sucks when these old guys you respect so much pass away. Here's to hoping Stan Lee who is currently older than dirt, don't join him soon. That combination would ruin my year.
