The Return of Roger Ebert

by | April 4, 2007 | Comments

Since Rotten Tomatoes is a website dedicated to movies, movie fans and movie critics, we obviously think a lot of Roger Ebert around here. And after a series of surgeries and a long time spent on the road to recovery, it looks like the Pulitzer-winning movie man is about to get back to work.

Slowly but surely is what we’re talking about here. Mr. Ebert has been on the mend for just about nine months, but he’s definitely planning to be in attendance at his ninth annual Overlooked Film Festival. Beyond that he plans to keep penning a few reviews here and there as he continues to recover from cancer treatments.

The widely-admired film critic seems just as enthusiastic about his job as ever: "I plan to gradually increase my duties in the months to come. I still love writing about the movies. Forty years is not enough."

Films scheduled to screen at the Overlooked Fest (in late April) include "Gattaca," "Holes," "The Weather Man," "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer," and "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls," which was written by Roger Ebert way back in 1969. (For more on the "Ebertfest," click here.)
