Quotes:
Michael Phillips:[after Roeper gives "Hell Ride" a positive review] Rich, the late Joey Bishop would come back from the grave and say, "Son, nyuck!" This film doesn't work as, you know, jokey sadism. It doesn't work as a straight action picture. Uh... did you... did you really see it?
Richard Roeper:I did see it.
[later in the review]
Richard Roeper:I wish I had a Chevy Nova and a drive-in and I'd go see it again.

Gene, you will be missed, 22 February 1999
Author: Sean Gallagher (seankgallagher@yahoo.com) from Brooklyn, NY

I write this two days after the death of co-host Gene Siskel, and somehow, it doesn't quite seem real yet. I've been watching the show religiously since 1990. In addition to getting to see clips from a movie, and being able to check my opinion next to two critics I respected, it also made good television. Gene was well-known as a basketball fan (the Chicago Bulls in particular), and watching the show was like watching a half-hour one-on-one game every week, though since the movies always changed, it rarely got boring, and while they probably agreed more than they disagreed, the creative tension between them was healthy and made for a dynamic show, considering it's just two guys talking about movies.

Although I probably agreed with Roger more, I identified with Gene more, because he always let you know where he stood, whereas Roger was more objective. And while some may have sniped about him and Roger making appearances on talk shows like Jay Leno and David Letterman, I always thought it was good that he understood that while movies were worth taking seriously, as well as writing about them, there was nothing wrong with having fun with yourself. I'm sure Gene would want people to still watch the show, so I will, but I will certainly miss him.
