Roger Joseph Ebert (/ˈiːbərt/; June 18, 1942 – April 4, 2013) was an American film critic, historian, journalist, screenwriter, and author. He was a film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times from 1967 until his death in 2013

Roger Joseph Ebert (/ˈiːbərt/; June 18, 1942 – April 4, 2013) was an American film critic, historian, journalist, screenwriter, and author. He was a film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times from 1967 until his death in 2013. In 1975, Ebert became the first film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism.

It was a time of wonders, an autumn of miracles, one of the best years in recent movie history. One great film after another opened, and movie lovers found there were two or three, sometimes more, must-see films opening on a weekend. The best films of 2007: 1. "Juno" : How can I choose this warm-hearted comedy about a pregnant teenager, when the year was rich with serious drama? First, because of all the year’s films I responded to it most strongly

I am not sure why I settled on 2007, but any year I purchase will be filled with new movies for me to discover. I really liked the introduction to the book

I am not sure why I settled on 2007, but any year I purchase will be filled with new movies for me to discover. I really liked the introduction to the book. I'm the person that normally skips introductions, but this one, by Ebert himself, is a good read. There is a lot of information about the movie industry as well as a rant about his dislike of 3D movies.

America's most trusted and best-known film critic Roger Ebert presents one hundred brilliant essays on some of the best movies ever made. For the past five years Roger Ebert, the famed film writer and critic, has been writing biweekly essays for a feature called "The Great Movies," in which he offers a fresh and fervent appreciation of a great film. The Great Movies collects one hundred of these essays, each one of them a gem of critical appreciation and an amalgam of love, analysis, and history that will send readers back to that film with a fresh set of eyes.

America's favorite movie critic assesses the year's films from Brokeback Mountain to Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2007 is perfect for film aficionados the world over.

Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2007 includes every review by Ebert written in the 30 months from January 2004 through June 2006-about 650 in all. Also included in the Yearbook, which is about 65 percent new every year, are:

Interviews with newsmakers such as Philip Seymour Hoffman, Terrence Howard, Stephen Spielberg, Ang Lee, and Heath Ledger, Nicolas Cage, and more.

All the new questions and answers from his Questions for the Movie Answer Man columns.

Daily film festival coverage from Cannes, Toronto, Sundance, and Telluride.

Essays on film issues and tributes to actors and directors who died during the year.

Ebert is an incredible writer and one of the all-time great cinema reviewers in the U.S. He covers mainstream as well as truly unusual films that got small releases, including a rare flick called CHAOS, starring Kevin Gage (Michael Mann's "Heat"). Included in the book are heated discussions and letters between Ebert and that film's producers, which outline the reasons for making it and how it relates to true crime news headlines. Fascinating discussions and thorough reviews. Lots of other unusual films like this covered, too. Hundreds of absorbing pages. 2006 was a strange year for great films - all looked over here in detial.

I have been an avid Roger Ebert fan for many years, and have purchased many of his books from amazon; this one is no exception and has fulfilled all my expectations!
Would like to know when the 2008 edition is likely to be published?

I anxiously await the release of this book on an annual basis. I feel that in some instances Ebert can be too generous with his stars as opposed to the ones in other movie books (Leonard Maltin anyone ?) but one can not blame the man for liking his work a little too much. For some reason, I tend to enjoy his "zero stars" reviews the best but I doubt if I'm the only one.

The essays, movie answer man column and glossary entries are a most for movie buffs and they alone are worth the price of this book.

Nothing personal
I find Roger Ebert's reviews an indespensible resource for ordering video rentals. He'll always give you a good, well written summary and review of any recent movies you're interested in. This latest '07 edition matches the excellence you've come to expect in this series.

Roger's absence for the last 5 or so months only makes you value this book more. Not being able to get his opinion before going to a movie or even missing his bi-weekly Answer Man column has pretty much driven me nuts.

Here's hoping his recovery goes by quickly !

I have never really read reviews by Roger Ebert but I thought I would give Roger Ebert’s Movie Yearbook 2007 a try for several reasons, one of which is for being famous I have never read a single review by him. I'm not really sure why I settled on the 2007 one, but any year is going to have a bunch of movies reviewed that I haven't seen.

First, most people probably skip the introduction to books, but this one, written by Ebert himself, is an absolute must read. It contains a lot of information about the movie industry as well as touches on Ebert’s dislike of 3D, which I knew about previously and agree with. I have a strong dislike of 3D movies too.

Next, this book is big and probably not one you would sit and read straight through, cover to cover unless you are a serious cinophile like Michael Bolton. Ebert reviews everything from blockbuster, action movies to kids movies to small independent films.

The book is not just reviews though. There is a discussion of top movies for 2005. Ok, this is actually a list of mini-reviews. There are also 12 interviews with stars including Nicholas Cage, Al Gore, and Steven Spielberg, though they are not shown as a typical Question Answer format, but as an essay of “things Ebert learned talking to x star”.

After the interviews are Essays, which I am not sure where they came from. They are almost like blog posts from Ebert talking about different movie related topics. For example, one of the Essays is defending his selection of Crash for best movie of the year once he hears another Critic, Scott Foundas from the LA Weekly, claims that Crash is actually the worst film of the year. In fact, Crash is discussed in multiple Essays.

After the Essays are Question and Answers from fans to Ebert.

I think this was a good purchase and I really enjoyed the reading. There are also some movies I need to go see. I will not blanket recommend this for everyone, but if you think you might be interested in movie reviews and/or Roger Ebert, definitely get a copy. But, at the minimum, find a place to read the introduction.

Also, see Crash

For years I WATCHED Roger Ebert, without even giving a thought to actually reading him. I mean, overall I agreed with Roger more often than with Gene, but the quick review format and the near constant bickering between Siskel and Ebert made for such flip entertainment that it never occurred to me that I might enjoy his actual written criticism, as much as, say, that of Pauline Kael or Andrew Sarris (yes, I liked them both). But the more I read Ebert's reviews in print and online the more impressed I am with his insight and the quality of his writing overall. Turns out he's a real critic, and no, he doesn't just play one on TV.

Of course, the fact that so much of his output IS available on his website for free might make you wonder about shelling out for a written compendium of recent reviews. And wouldn't only a die-hard fan buy the annual edition of the Yearbook(which cycles in the current years but has the previous three years as well)? It's not an easy question to answer, but I will say this much. I have no compunction about browsing the volumes in bookstores and libraries--and I almost NEVER pass up a remaindered copy. But no, I don't purchase EACH year's volume. I'm admirer, maybe even a bit of a fan, but not a downright fanatic.

No one will agree with any one critic all of the time, and there have been reviews of Ebert's that have left me scratching my head in bewilderment. But I do like the fact that he is willing to go out on a limb a good deal of the time, and that he takes enough care to back his arguments with solid reasoning. He's not above the occasional anecdote, which can add a little humor and a human touch, but he does use his reviews as a jumping off point to blather on about himself either.

I've always liked the guy, and now I find that I like his writing. Now one of these days I'll have to look up some of Gene Siskel's old reviews. Or that new guy's--whatisname, Roeper? Yeah, I'll have to check him out too.
