Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

The guy in the background with his mouth open seems a bit too excited.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

it's gonna be weird when Ebert dies cuz they'll have to get somebody who's even less popular than Roeper. but that's not to knock Ebert or Roeper, they're great. I actually agree with Roeper more than I do Ebert usually.

So ebert was the first critic to win a pulitzer prize for his criticism...of what movie? what won it for him? was it just his overall work or one specific review or article?

Ebert makes me long for the days when fox has a show on called....that's right....The Critic
Ebert and Sherman, that would've been much better

Roger Ebert's Chicago Townhouse.

Found here.

When he shows the shelve of movies that are pretty good, which box set can you see?

I saw Kubrick collection, dreyer box set and orphic trilogy (last two criterion editions). But, its an impressive lay out. I always knew I'd be jealous of his set up.

He's a great critic but his David Lynch reviews are some of the stupidest things I've ever read....specially the blue velvet and the elephant man...

If he doesn't get it, he won't give it a favorable review.

Ebert should just come out and say "I didn't get it" and move on.

Lately he seems to get everything.  What's with all the 4 star and 3 1/2 star reviews?  He's always been a little generous but it's getting ridiculous.

Have you read the review for Blue Velvet?

He completely got the film - he just really really wishes it was something else.

He's so critical beacuse his response to certain parts were so positive, that he hated the movie for not continuing down his desired path.

(more or less he loved the parts with rosellini and thought that the satirical tone to lumberton trivailized the darker elements instead of juxtaposing and heightening the effect)
