I miss Roger Ebert.

I do.

If you’re a writer, you could learn hell of a lot about storytelling by reading his film reviews. Two areas he taught readers a lot, for example, were character development and avoiding cliche.

And not to sound like an anti-intellectual here, but I always trusted (and enjoyed reading) his opinion far more than those of the highbrow film school prof-type reviewers who seemed to feel that every movie needed to be “Citizen Kane.”
