    sickel and ebert (or however the fuck you spell their names) get to be "the critics" ?

    it's like they are the almighty critics of all critics, and i assume they get paid to do what they do, so does anyone know the story about how they became -the critics- everyone looks to for movie reviews etc?

    well, first i'd assume the have a degree in journalism since they first got known for writing a column in a newspaper. after that they probably just made smart career options.

    well they still use the phrase when reviewing movies, because i just heard it on the television...

    anyfucking ways though, i just hate shit like that, these fuckers get paid to review movies, and people act like what they say matters... when really its just another persons stupid opinion.

    Ebert and Roeper?

    And they were both movie critics for newspapers, I think. Like Chicago or something like that. Then they moved on to their show, that is really one-of-a-kind, or it was when it came out.

    Siskel and Ebert were a great duo. Ebert and Roeper are pretty good themselves. I have a similar taste in movies as Ebert, and I appreciate his comments. He's a skilled writer and movie critic. He writes for the Chicago Sun Times. And as much as you hate it, Tease, he got his job by getting out there, getting an education, and working hard; not by hating on someone else's fame on an internet website.

    Ebert pretty much panders to mass opinion, he likes some terrible movies and trashes some really good ones. He is a mainstream critic, and he does it well. I don't agree with much of what he says, but he wrote a review for Jay Carr's (former excellent Boston Globe critic) book of 100 Greatest Movies. It was for Night of the Living Dead and he couldn't have wrote a better review. That gives me a little bit of respect for the man but otherwise I don't agree with most of his points. He's written for the Chicago Sun for a very long time and is one of the most established critics around. That's how he got his job.

    I actually feel tease on this. Another person that burns my ass is Joan Rivers. You work one day out of the year to talk shit about what people are wearing? Who the fuck pays you and who really and truely deep down in their heart really gives a flying fuck what you think. Oh no the shoes dont match the million dollar iced out bra. Fuck off you whore. You're 190 go get some sleep.
