Episode 20: You Must Remember This
Hey folks, Andrew here.
Roger Ebert has died at the age of 70. This is a major loss to lovers of cinema and film criticism. I grew up watching Siskel & Ebert and later Ebert & Roeper as well as reading his reviews of the latest movies. His influence on me was so profound that it went beyond just movies. He taught me so much about criticism, writing, journalism, and thinking and he shaped my sensibility as a young filmgoer more than anyone, including many of the filmmakers I admire. He is already missed.
This episode includes a brief salute to Mr. Ebert but a proper tribute to him from Steve and I will take place on the following episode next month.
On this show, Steve and I crosstalk about Harmony Korine's SPRING BREAKERS and what we loved about it. Steve enthusiastically appraises WILLOW, which recently got released on Blu-ray. Towards the end of the show, we also talk about the power of Chuck Norris' beard, which he lost when he recently shaved it off!
