O'kay folks in this clip we are going to talk about some different famous movie critics. There are quite a few critics that have made names for themselves. Obviously one big one would be Roger Ebert. He was part of the original Siskel and Ebert team. They reviewed movies for years on television and built up quite a following in their show. They became known as the critics of their time. Roger Ebert currently writes for The Chicago Sun Times and even though he doesn't do his TV show any more he is still considered to be one of the top critics in the country if not the world. Another big one that would follow I guess you would say in his footsteps on television would be Richard Roeper. He actually took over for Gene Siskel after he passed away I believe it was in the early 90's or late 80's and he became quite a prominent critic on television. He up until recently still had his own show on television the "Ebert and Roeper Show" and he is considered to be one of the prominent critics in the country. Where I go when I want to read a good movie review is the website aintitcoolnews.com. That one was started by a guy named Harry Knowles and he has a little team of guys that all go by different aliases and if you find out their real names you would probably do a Google search on them but he has built up his little team of critics who their website went from nothing to becoming one of the prominent movie websites on the web. So that is pretty impressive in and of itself so Harry Knowles and his little band of merry men from Moriarty and Massive Worm and Capone all their different aliases they have got, they have built up their reputation as being some of the top movie critics at least in America. So those are just a few examples of some famous movie critics.
