[Movies] Roger Ebert Dead At 70
Posted by Ashish on 04.04.2013



TMZ reports that Roger Ebert died today at the age of 70, losing his battle with cancer. Ebert had been diagnosed with thyroid and salivary cancer in 2002 and had his lower jaw removed four years later.

Ebert is best known as one of the most famous movie critics in history and popularized the "Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down" rating style.

Ebert seemed to know that the end was near as he wrote the following in his final blog entry earlier this week.

"It really stinks that the cancer has returned and that I have spent too many days in the hospital. So on bad days I may write about the vulnerability that accompanies illness. On good days, I may wax ecstatic about a movie so good it transports me beyond illness."

"So on this day of reflection I say again, thank you for going on this journey with me. I'll see you at the movies."
