Nice South Park joke and I've only seen the Mecha Streisand season, almost didn't get it.

I don't care if Maltin is considered a bit of a sap, I like him.

Maltin is a bit of a sap, but he's not as bad as so many claim.

I've always liked Ebert, but have loved him ever since he named Dark City the best film of the year in 1998. Anyone who hasn't done so already should give his commentary track on the DVD a listen--it's really good stuff.

the only critics that I ever liked and respected, even though I never agreed with them completely, were Siskel and Ebert. I'd also  mourn the passing of Leonard Maltin. I like his stage presense and  his knowledge and love of films. I don't think I've ever seen a review by Siegel
Now if Maitland McDonagh, Bey Logan, Tim Lucas, Roger Ebert, or Kim Newman dies, I'll be posting in the forum.

Which is exactly how I saw his reviews...I can't remember the last time I've paid any attention to either Joel Siegel or Gene Shalit.

I wonder if Kevin Smith will write the eulogy?
