Roger Ebert

Roger Ebert was an American film critic who joined the Chicago Sun-Times in 1967. He wrote for the paper and was syndicated around the country until his death. He was a prolific writer, writing over 300 reviews just last year.

Along with Gene Siskel, he hosted At The Movies, helping viewers decide what movies to see every week. The two coined the still-famous phrase "Two Thumbs Up."

Ebert, the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize, died at age 70 on April 4, 2013.
