#FF Roger Ebert, remakes and more...

As you've probably heard by now, the great Roger Ebert has passed away. This man introduced to me to the concept of film criticism and I'll be forever grateful. Whenever I check Rotten Tomatoes, I always made sure to look for Ebert's score and summarized review. Over time I have noticed that we share very similar taste and as such, I trusted his opinion highly. His passing truly filled me with immense sadness and I feel incapable of sufficiently writing a tribute to this great man. In light of this, I've included some tributes from other LAMB members among other interesting posts from the past week:

Courtney dedicates a post to Roger Ebert, citing him as a teacher and champion of film.

Emil also salutes Roger Ebert in his dedication post.

Sam remembers Roger Ebert's kindness in his In Memoriam post.

Dan proves that remakes can indeed be worthwhile, listing his Top Ten Remakes.

Clayton gives a nice roundup of the potential Oscar contenders from the first quarter of 2013.

Shawna names 10 Foreign Language Films that she loves.
