Skip to comments.Roger Ebert 'disappointed' by latest polls

Film critic Roger Ebert is disappointed in you, America.
"A depression has descended upon me. I look at the blank screen, and those are the words that come into my mind," Ebert wrote Wednesday. "I do not believe for a second that Mitt Romney will win the election. I do believe that at this moment he is tied, 50-50, in various national polls. Many of my fellow Americans have at least temporarily disappointed me."

Happy to disappoint you - you freak.
Why? Because his record is perfect. I know with 100% certainty that when Roger pans a movie, it's going to be good. I know with 100% certainty that when Roger approves a movie, it is going to totally suck.
I know I can always count on his reviews; saves me a ton of cash.
Who would be a good film critic in your opinion?
Gawd, I can’t believe it’s been that long ago.
I think he’s really disappointed by HIS LATEST POLE. Not Poll.
So you hate The Wild Bunch, The Godfather, E.T., Amadeus, Fargo, Schindler’s List?
You should have provided his current photo to go along with your post! Sorry that was cruel of me, oh not really he is a lib after all.
If he doesn't get it he'll stop.
Why are you giving it to him?
Roger, Chicago sucks, the Blackhawks suck, and their politics suck worse. Go Wings.
I have too much class to suggest he keep his chin up.
Chicago is a great city. Obama’s politics have really soiled its reputation.
Can’t think of anything worse than disappointing Roger Ebert.(snicker)
It’s a giant parking lot. I thought Detroit suburban traffic was bad......
Compared to L.A. or NYC? It’s actually fairly easy to get around in.
I went to a KFC in eastern Colorado several years ago. This particular KFC was staffed by shall we say minorities. I placed my order, paid and then was promptly told “We don’t got no “cheekin”. Then the fun began. I requested a refund...was told in broken English they didn’t know how to make a refund. After a prolonged discussion I managed to get a phone number for the franchise owner. I placed a call, explained the situation at his franchise location and expected the situation to be corrected. Several days later I did a follow-up. Nothing done. I proceeded to contact KFC corporate...within a week the KFC franchise was shut down.
“...a dyed-in the wool Chicago old media millionaire Commie...”
And he is not a good reviewer of films. His prejudices make him trash a great movie like OCTOBER BABY just because it is pro-life and other films he’ll slam because they have manly men.
Ebert’s career peaked with the campy BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS.
I rate his comments as two thumbs down!
Two middle fingers up!
Nah..not dead yet, just looks that way.
He didnt review “Obama 2016” for a long time because the movie wasnt showing “in his area”, or something like that. I wonder if he ever managed to get in his car and drive the 5 miles to see it?
Actually I don’t read any of them. The last critic I read in any field was Robert C. Marsh, the music critic for the Sun-Times for many years.
I have so little regard for the newspapers and media I don’t trust them or believe what they say about anything.
I rarely see movies or go to the movie theaters. The last exception was going to see Trouble With the Curve, Clint’s latest. Terrific movie, good story, good performances. You could take the family.
Just his brain.
Our politics have ALWAYS soiled our reputation. In the 1880s the head of the gambling syndicate was also head of the Cook County Democratic organization.
Politics started in the saloons here and was run out of them for close to 100 years. Power oscillated between the saloon keepers, brother owners, gamblers and criminal syndicates or various combinations thereof for the first century of the city’s existence.
The fundamental difference between the old RATs and the new RATs is that the former was not ideological at all but more concerned with securing the maximum amount of graft and boodle for the Party. They were no more Left than the standard American voter. The Ultra Left has taken charge now.
Did you ever try to get around Detroit? Impossible without a map at your side. The city grew by annexing a lot of smaller towns and the streets are neither parallel nor perpendicular but at odd angles in many cases.
I lived there for 2 years and it was an armpit then and much worse now.
AND MEANWHILE..... i.e. ROGER GIVES A DOG OF A MOVIE I.E.
WAG THE DOG (R) Ebert:****
4 OUT OF 4 STARS......BWAHAAHAHWA OH MY GODDDD.......
Hey, as long as the check cleared..
I’m factoring in his reputation...the guy’s a putz.
For years I’d consider seeing anything he panned but for the most part avoided anything he gave a good review.
All Democrats jaws dropped with these polls, not just happening with Roger.
All the films are I mentioned are American classics.
