Roger's absence for the last 5 or so months only makes you value this book more. Not being able to get his opinion before going to a movie or even missing his bi-weekly Answer Man column has pretty much driven me nuts.

Here's hoping his recovery goes by quickly !

I find Roger Ebert's reviews an indespensible resource for ordering video rentals. He'll always give you a good, well written summary and review of any recent movies you're interested in. This latest '07 edition matches the excellence you've come to expect in this series.

I have been an avid Roger Ebert fan for many years, and have purchased many of his books from amazon; this one is no exception and has fulfilled all my expectations!
Would like to know when the 2008 edition is likely to be published?

Format: Paperback
For years I WATCHED Roger Ebert, without even giving a thought to actually reading him. I mean, overall I agreed with Roger more often than with Gene, but the quick review format and the near constant bickering between Siskel and Ebert made for such flip entertainment that it never occurred to me that I might enjoy his actual written criticism, as much as, say, that of Pauline Kael or Andrew Sarris (yes, I liked them both). But the more I read Ebert's reviews in print and online the more impressed I am with his insight and the quality of his writing overall. Turns out he's a real critic, and no, he doesn't just play one on TV.

Of course, the fact that so much of his output IS available on his website for free might make you wonder about shelling out for a written compendium of recent reviews. And wouldn't only a die-hard fan buy the annual edition of the Yearbook(which cycles in the current years but has the previous three years as well)? It's not an easy question to answer, but I will say this much. I have no compunction about browsing the volumes in bookstores and libraries--and I almost NEVER pass up a remaindered copy. But no, I don't purchase EACH year's volume. I'm admirer, maybe even a bit of a fan, but not a downright fanatic.

No one will agree with any one critic all of the time, and there have been reviews of Ebert's that have left me scratching my head in bewilderment. But I do like the fact that he is willing to go out on a limb a good deal of the time, and that he takes enough care to back his arguments with solid reasoning. He's not above the occasional anecdote, which can add a little humor and a human touch, but he does use his reviews as a jumping off point to blather on about himself either.

I've always liked the guy, and now I find that I like his writing. Now one of these days I'll have to look up some of Gene Siskel's old reviews. Or that new guy's--whatisname, Roeper? Yeah, I'll have to check him out too.
