This news made me surprisingly sad when I found out earlier today. Maybe it’s because another one of my childhood icons is gone, maybe it’s because a witty, sharp reviewer will no longer be around to skewer crappy Hollywood movies. Maybe it’s both.
I remember watching “At the Movies” together with my dad way back when I was a kid in MPLS. And kidees, this was on a black-and-white TV with no remote control. Imagine that: You had to get off your ass to change the channel. Anyway…good memories, loved his reviews, and even agreed with them most of the time.
(sigh), rest in peace, Roger.
