Well this has been a week for celebrity deaths, Roger Ebert (beloved film critic), Margaret Thatcher (the other half of the evil duo with Ronald Reagan), and Annette Funicello (Disney discovered teen sex sells on TV).
I joked now that Roger is gone, Hollywood will now be able to make bad movies with abandon. Let a thousand Michael Bays bloom. Sadly, they’ve always made crappy movies. Roger was there to tell us what was worth watching. I didn’t always agree with his reviews but they were always well thought out. And I really liked that he joined Twitter and expressed many of his other views as well. The Internet became his voice when he’d lost his real one. May we all find our voice regardless of what format it’s heard in.
