Two Thumbs Up



If you, too, remember Siskel & Ebert offering movie reviews, please go visit Roger Ebert's blog entry. It brings tears to my eyes.

  1. Hi Nan
    Due to you we did it, or let's say my husband did.Thanks to your link we purchased an lp to digital machine, and loaded all the lps we couldn't part with,etc.
    Because we have the player we plan to keep some of the lps we like,etc.
    But it's good to know we have everything now on our computer to play whenever we wish.
    Thanks so much for your help on this.
    I've been MIA as we've been scurrying around here in the winter months trying to get organized!
    Stay warm.

  5. You are very welcome, Mim, and it is really thanks to Tom! I'm so happy you could do this. Sounds like it is a big step in your organization!

    Tara, Susan, and Kay - thank you for taking the time to read his piece.

  6. That was great. I love Siskel's terrible mustache in one of the pics, and Ebert's 1970's clothes were a hoot, too.

  7. It really seems like yesterday until I see the photographs.

  8. I always looked for the films they both gave "Thumbs up!" If one liked a film and the other didn't, I usually didn't, but if they both liked it it was a winner. Now when I want to read a review of a movie that I'm a little at odds with myself over, I go to Ebert's review and he clears it up for me.

    Ebert's story of their relationship is so interesting and touching. Glad you found it. It's so long I'm reading it in stages, though--I'm going to watch the imbedded videos tomorrow.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
