A huge announcement for movie lovers everywhere was made by Roger Ebert today:

The various incarnation of Siskel & Ebert & Roeper represent about more than 1,000 TV programs, on which the three of us, and various guest critics, reviewed more than 5,000 movies. And now at last an online archive exists with all of those reviews.

The site is up now with a good amount of reviews that you can start watching, although the official launch with full archive searchability isn’t until tomorrow (August 2). Along with Ebert’s archive of all of his print reviews, it’s all the reference any movie fan could possibly need.

    I always wondered how many tons of nachos and popcorn Ebert has eaten in all those theatres. So what are your thoughts and opinions of the Simpsons movie? Ebert gave it 3 stars and points out the whole flawed voting process, and really just a good movie shouldn’t be getting this kind of love.

    Personally I have zero interest in seeing it, and have other various thoughts on the subject.

  • I saw the Simpsons movie, and enjoyed it. I haven’t watched the show in 7 or 8 years, due to it sucking so badly, but the movie was pretty good. It was about what I expected: a 90-minute Simpsons episode, with a couple of “movie-only” jokes thrown in. Nothing great about it, but it was enjoyable and worth $5 on a Sunday afternoon.

    Yeah I stopped watching in ’05, the triple daily doses & the new ones were just so bad. The straw that broke the camel’s back was the episode of Bart getting obese (in like a span of 2 weeks) off of Springfield Elementary’s new vending machines, which results in Bart getting a heart attack, being sent to fat camp & the Simpsons rent out space in their home to German immigrants to pay for it. So yeah, it’s so stupid now. Groening’s massive market generating machine should have died years ago, shows only have so many episodes in them. Any profanity in the movie?

  • There were a couple of instances of profanity, one instance of nudity, and even sort of a sex scene, but I don’t want to ruin the jokes for you or anybody else by describing them here.
