Roger Ebert, 1942 – 2013

Roger Ebert is probably the most popular and well-known film critic to have ever lived. Sadly, he passed away today due to complications with cancer at the age of 70.

Ebert’s had a rough few years, from getting cancer, to having to remove his jaw, to losing his voice completely. So if anything, we can be happy knowing he is no longer going through the mental, phsyical, and emotional turmoil that is the bitch, cancer.
