Will There Be Another Roger Ebertc No. Thoughts on Today's Cinephiles and Critics

Yes, this article may appear random, but over at Variety, Bob Verini posted an article back in early September I only came to read this weekend headlined "Roger Ebert: The Last Critic Who Matteredc" In his opening 'graph Verini seems to describe what it means to have "mattered" in one sentence, writing, "No other critic ever possessed the international platform of his TV gigs, his visibility or his celebrity." In this sense it seems "mattered" is matched with "popularity" and this isn't to discount Ebert's effect, I've long believed Ebert actually "mattered" because not only was he great at articulating his opinion he'd been around for such a long time and seen so many films during their first run. For him to compare a movie from the late '60s to one released in 2011 made more sense than it did/does for anyone else. It's one thing to have experienced »
