"Roger Ebert is the most famous movie critic of all time. Back in the day, a movie would live or die based on what Mr. Ebert said.
What made him such a good critic wasn't his beautiful writing, hilarious way with words, or brutal honesty - it was that he always followed his own opinion. He was never afraid to go against the consensus on a movie. No, Ebert hated some beloved movies, and he loved some loathed ones. His total unpredictability is what made him so fascinating."
