A tribute to Siskel & Ebert

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 14th 2009 2:03PM
Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert can probably be credited with really getting everyone interested in movie criticism. Before Sneak Previews, people would read movie reviews, sure, but they brought intelligent film criticism to television and became a huge part of pop culture.

This is a tribute from The Nostalgia Critic, and he covers the history of the show, from the start on PBS to the death of Siskel in 1999 to the hosts that eventually replaced them. He probably needs to get a better microphone, but it's well-done.(Slightly NSFW.)

How I missed this review until now is beyond me?! I typed in Anderson Cooper's name in Google, and in within minutes, I found myself here... which is great! I had a good laugh and smile watching your show! I appreciate the link to http://siskelandebert.org/. Roger linked to the site on January 17, 2013 in regards to his positive review of Speed as well as Gene's and trying to defend it http://siskelandebert.org/video/BBG2D5S8HA6A/Speed-2--Ulee8217s-Gold--Broken-English-1997. Anyway Doug, thanks again from me and Brian!

I just wrote a history of the show not too long ago.
