  • This was a shock, but not an unexpected one. I have long been a pretty big fan of Roger Ebert, and I will miss his insights on the latest movies. Hard to believe that his reviews have come to an end, but I guess that's the way it had to be sooner or later. RIP. Kurtis (talk) 05:30, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

  • I am very fond of Ebert's work, especially with regards to live-action films and anime films. It was sad that his life came to an end a few days after reviewing From Up on Poppy Hill. Rest in peace, Roger Ebert! Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 18:51, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
