RIP Roger Ebert. I disagreed with you as often as I agreed with you. But one thing is for sure, a giant in the field of film criticism has passed. Your legacy will endure throughout the ages.

Salon reprinted an essay Roger wrote on his own mortality a few years back. It's worth a read.

I know it is coming, and I do not fear it, because I believe there is nothing on the other side of death to fear. I hope to be spared as much pain as possible on the approach path. I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. I am grateful for the gifts of intelligence, love, wonder and laughter. You can’t say it wasn’t interesting. My lifetime’s memories are what I have brought home from the trip. I will require them for eternity no more than that little souvenir of the Eiffel Tower I brought home from Paris.

As a film fan, it's sad to hear about Ebert's passing especially after fighting cancer. One of the best and most respected film critic's is gone, I guess the balcony is closed for good now.

RIP Jane Henson

Jane Henson, the widow of and original collaborator with Jim Henson, the creator of the Muppets, died on Tuesday at her home in Greenwich, Conn. She was 78.

The cause was cancer, said a spokesman for the Jim Henson Company, the production company owned by the couple’s five children.

Mrs. Henson and her husband, who were legally separated in 1986, remained friends until his death in 1990 at 53 from untreated pneumonia.

The couple first met in a puppetry class in 1954 at the University of Maryland, where they were fine arts students. The next year, when the NBC television affiliate in Washington invited Mr. Henson to produce a series of five-minute puppet segments, he asked his future wife to join him as a creator and performer.

The five-minute spots they assembled, which were shown twice daily as “Sam and Friends,” featured an early version of Kermit the Frog (known simply as Kermit, and more lizard than frog) and various other forebears of the Muppet troupe.

Mrs. Henson worked on “Sam and Friends” until it ended in 1961, though less actively after she and Mr. Henson married in 1959. “When we started having babies, I always worked a little bit, but we very soon knew that we needed more people, and Jim had wanted to bring in other people, anyway,” she said in a CNN interview in 1999.

In her later role as unofficial talent scout and gatekeeper of Mr. Henson’s enterprises, she was credited with hiring many of the puppeteers and writers involved in creating the Muppets, who made their debut as an ensemble in 1969 on “Sesame Street.”

Jane Ann Nebel was born on June 16, 1934, in Queens, the youngest of three children of Winifred and Adalbert Nebel. Her father, an astrologer known professionally as Dal Lee, was the editor of the newsstand publications Astrology Guide and Your Personal Astrology.

When her children were older, Mrs. Henson was active in entertainment projects like the arena shows “The Muppet Show on Tour” and “Sesame Street Live.” In 1982 she helped form the Jim Henson Foundation, which promotes puppetry.

She is survived by her children, Lisa, Cheryl, Brian, John and Heather Henson; seven grandchildren; a step-grandchild; a sister, Margareta Jennings; and a brother, Brereton Nebel.

Cheryl Henson, who is president of the Jim Henson Foundation, said her mother had provided ballast for her father’s creative freedom and was his artistic collaborator throughout their life. “She encouraged him to take risks,” she said, “always urged him not to compromise.”

In the Henson family lexicon, she said, “We called her the great maza shelaza of the Muppets.”

Roughly translated, she added, that meant the mother of all Muppets.

R.I.P. Roger Ebert.

Being from the UK I had no idea who Ebert was until relatively recently (2004), I didn't grow up watching him because in the UK we used to watch a show on the BBC called Film '(insert year) hosted by Barry Norman. So the whole Siskel and Ebert TV thing completely passed me by.

I was first turned onto Ebert when Aint-It-Cool-News said Ebert gave Spider-Man 2 (my favourite superhero movie of all time at the time) 4 stars and he (Ebert) called it the greatest superhero movie ever and they (AICN) were making a big deal about it. I was like 'big deal' some reviewer gave SM2 top marks why the big deal? It was only when I started reading about the regard in which Ebert was held.
It was then I started reading his past and present reviews which stretched all the way back to the '70s and his movie knowledge was peerless. I then started watching old Siskel and Ebert clips on YouTube and how I wish it was those two I was watching growing up rather than Barry Norman (sorry, Barry).

Ebert views nearly always exactly mirrored my own and his opinion was one I came to trust, he become my go to reviewer and even when he gave a review I didn't agree with his words were so eloquent I could at least 'understand' his point of view.

I will really miss his reviews and just today I listened to his commentary on Dark City, it is one of the best commentaries I have ever heard. I honestly think Ebert was the greatest reviewer ever and I will be amazed if another reviewer will ever be held in as high regard again.

God bless Ebert (even though you didn't believe in God) my thoughts are with Chaz.

R.I.P

Annette Funicello passed at 70.


I never say this, but I thought she had died years ago because of her illness.
