I hope they discuss the Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel reviews of John Carpenter movies

'The Fog' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eywc9PvoozA

'Escape from New York' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xW-JL58fQQk

'John Carpenter's The Thing' https://youtu.be/Q_ejjQBtfLM

'Starman' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPJsEutORSc

'John Carpenter's Vampires' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWlR0P-e3pg

Johhny Carps was very ahead of his time. I love the original #twofriends but they didn't get it, man.

Unsurprisingly they gravitated most to Starman. They love the fuck out of that movie.

Gene Siskel loving 'John Carpenter's Vampires' and James Woods in it is kind of fucking wild

Why is Roger Ebert considered the perfect film critic when he had so many reviews of major movies that are considered wildly offbase today?
  • He thought the Golden Compass was far superior to Lord of the Rings.

  • Hated The Usual Suspects.

  • Hated Fight Club.

  • He hated Robert De Niro in the Godfather Part 2.

  • Thought Home Alone 3 was better than Home Alone 1 and 2.

  • Loved Batman Forever.

  • Thought it was impossible to make a "great movie" and a "comic book movie" at the same time.

  • Thought the original Star Wars was unimpressive outside of the special FX, but thought Episode 1 was pretty good.

  • Hated the ending of the 6th Sense.

  • Liked many of Adam Sandler's later movies.

  • Thought Jurassic Park had too much action and should have been a documentary-style movie.

  • Hated A Clockwork Orange.

I always enjoyed how unpretentious Roger Ebert was.

At the risk of sounding cliche, Ebert is my all time favorite film critic. I still remember tuning in weekly to catch his latest reviews, and it was one of the highlights of my week as silly as that sounds. His writing just had this "everyman" quality that made me understand filmmaking on a more fundamental level.

And he never seemed pretentious. I didn't agree with him on everything, but I never got the impression that he felt he was "above" certain films. At the core of it, he simply just loved the medium. It could be a serious drama or it could be a silly film, but he always seemed to appreciate both the depth and the spectacle. He gave superhero films more 3.5/four stars than his contemporaries because he often felt satisfied being entertained rather than just moved with emotion.

And I simply appreciated his optimism. One of his most infamous reviews was about Freddy Got Fingered.

> "This movie doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels..."

However, in a later review of the film Stealing Harvard, Ebert references Tom Green and Freddy once again saying:

> But the thing is, I remember "Freddy Got Fingered" more than a year later. I refer to it sometimes. It is a milestone. And for all its sins, it was at least an ambitious movie, a go-for-broke attempt to accomplish something. It failed, but it has not left me convinced that Tom Green doesn't have good work in him. Anyone with his nerve and total lack of taste is sooner or later going to make a movie worth seeing.

Unfortunately, this hasn't happened (as of yet), but I always enjoyed his positive outlook on filmmaking in general.

He was simply the best at what he did: using film criticism in a way that resonates with an audience unlike anyone who came before. Or aftee that matter.

WOR: Roger Ebert used to be a WON subscriber. He would email me every Saturday asking for my reviews on movies. I always told him the best way to judge how good a movie is was by how much the theater audience popped when actors appeared on screen.

Little known fact, Ebert actually adopted his star rating from the WON rating system.

"If I were asked to name the single scene in all of romantic comedy that was sexiest and funniest at the same time, I would advise beginning at six seconds past the 20-minute mark in Preston Sturges's The Lady Eve.”

You heard the man. Vote Sturges for this.

What is your favorite movie that Roger Ebert gave a negative review?

I’ve been able to appreciate Roger, even though I disagreed with him a lot. One of my favorite reviews of his was the Great Movies review he did on Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, which has always been one of my favorite movies of all time. But he also panned some beloved classics and sometimes for bizarre reasons. Die Hard, To Kill a Mockingbird, Reservoir Dogs, and the Thing are some of my favorites that he shat on.

He was also infamous for panning Blue Velvet (1 star), A Clockwork Orange, and Dead Poets Society (both 2 stars).

For reference, 2.5 stars or lower was considered a negative review for him.

Edit: He also panned Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, and Mrs. Doubtfire, which were all some of my favorites when I was growing up. I think every one of those movies still hold up today.

Bubble Bass

Roger Ebert in the 90s

He certainly reminds me of him in his design. Ebert was a film critic rather than a restaurant critic but he was still almost certainly the most famous critic in America at the time so it would make some sense.

Roger Ebert and Martin Scorsese's 10 Best Films of the 90s

You're in for a treat!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXIxJQaPa_k

I searched this episode about three years ago, and came up empty. Now it is finally online!

I disagree with both gentlemen. What, Pumkinhead gets no love? (person whispers in my ear: Pumpkinhead was made in the 80's). Alright FINE, but what about The Burbs.

"That too." Damn.

But yeah I think we can all agree that this format between Ebert and Scorsese is awesome!

A few interesting notes:

  • Scorsese did NOT choose Pulp Fiction, though he claims to have admired the film. Scorsese is a fan of Michael Mann -- specifically HEAT. Scorsese is a fan of the new Asian cinema, though he made what seems like a peculiar choice: "The Horse Thief."

  • As for Ebert...well watch the clip.

I think this is really great, and I wish there was some other fat guy to serve as a stand-in for Ebert.

Let's get together to play the Roger Ebert Game over Zoom!

The Roger Ebert Game is exactly the same as the Leonard Maltin Game, but uses Ebert’s reviews (as well as reviews written by others on his website) and lists the cast in order of billing.

A few mentioned you might be interested in playing if I set up a game. If anyone is still down, DM me for the Zoom info.

Right now, there’s an event for the game in the Doug Loves Movies Facebook group. If you’re a member, please RSVP there.
