Quotes

[reviewing "10,000 BC"]
Michael Phillips: It's like an insane mash up between "Ice Age 2" and "Apocalypto", two movies that aren't really as much fun as this one, *I say*. It's about 10,000 pounds of cheese on a cracker, and Richard, now and then, know what I'm in the mood for? 10,000 *pounds of cheese* on a cracker.

Great Show
1 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I love reading reviews of movies.Since I`m from Chicago I`ve been reading Ebert's reviews for quite some time now. He is great,and is always a pleasure to read. I tuned into this show. It is great. It is always funny when Siskel/Ebert,or Ebert/Roeper argue. Though Roeper is no where as good as Siskel he is still pretty good critic.Ebert still has great chemistry with either partner. They are very informative,and look at movies with an angle,no critic other than Ebert,or who ever can do. They don't give bull crap good reviews,which is bad for me cause I like a lot of bull crap,but never mind. Ebert is the best!

Thumbs Up He he
