Sure, "Film Critic" isn't the hardest job in the world. And Ebert could often come across as pompous bordering on self parody. And over time he would give "Thumbs Up" to some pretty unwatchable foreign films, while dissing comedy gold like Vanilla Ice's feature debut "Cool As Ice." But for a moment in my youth his TV show was a guide to the amazing world of cinema. Roger Ebert will be missed and that's The Bitter Truth.
