Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

On Blade Runner (1982): I felt that this film was a waste of time. Pretty to look at, but a waste of time! See more »


Agreed with long-time colleague Roger Ebert on the best film of 1990 (Goodfellas (1990)) and the worst films of 1980 (I Spit on Your Grave (1978)) and 1994 (North (1994)). See more »


Always ended interviews with the question, "What do you know for sure?" See more »
