Dennis Hopper is great in this movie.
John Holmes Motherfucker
Ebert's bizarre reaction is all the more so when you consider his screenplay for Russ Meyer, and when you consider what this film did for Rosellini's career. I can't account for it, but Ebert is a good critic, and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is a kick-ass screenplay, This is about as wrong as he's ever been. It was a personal reaction to a movie that sets out to be disturbing. He's to be forgiven.
WHO WANTS DESSERT
Agreed. I don't judge movie critics on whether or not their tastes line up with THE GREAT FILM CANON, especially decades after the fact.

Roger Ebert has dumbass tourette. He lives his life in a continuum of film genius punctuated with involuntary idiotic opinions about awesome things.

Paracelsus
There are few people who write about great film with more heart than Roger Ebert. He's absolutely spot-on 96% of the time, which is what makes the other 4% so frustrating.

Roger doesn't seem to understand what acting is all about, (oh yeah that's right, I forgot, he's a movie critic). I miss Gene.
Jet Bin Fever
I love watching the bald guy argue with the fat tub of lard.

Ebert removed his jaw to ate Siskel!

Aelric
Errr, AND ate Siskel, not TO. Stupid drunk typing!! Shame, I am starting to think I'm PorTV's designated mistyper after 6 years of fucking comments up.

"Ebert removed his jaw to ate Siskel!" is funnier.

DriverStabby
Yes. Stars for "Ebert removed his jaw to ate Siskel!"

Aelric
It's strange to see the usually reserved Siskel actually defend something like Blue Velvet while the usually more open minded to film experimentation Ebert lash against it. Then again, Fuck that shit, Pabst Blue Ribbon. Seriously, it's a movie, they are critics. nothing new here is a literal sense.

If I believe rightly, he recanted on his blog a few years ago.

Hooker
At 4:19, Ebert's collar is disshelved, but before and after it's fine.

Why on Earth did they decide to add a clip from some other time of Ebert getting hyper?
Riskbreaker
The movie leaves me a bit indifferent, Ebert is overeacting for sure. Still interesting to see them argue, can't think of any critics these days that are this fun to watch.
John Holmes Motherfucker
I feel like Ebert had a visceral negative reaction to the film, which is not that hard to understand, and felt compelled to give a lucid reason for it. Being a film critic, he couldn't just say "this movie creeped me out". He had to rationalize an irrational impulse, and that can get pretty strained.
misterbuns
Please tell me more about the mythic elegance of Prometheus, Mr. Ebert.
Riskbreaker
He basically said it looks coo, and that was it, nothing more. Not that Blue Velvet has a super complex story, but Prometheus is basically a glorified b-movie, but hey, check those sets!

If these guys had embraced Patch Adams and the healing power of laughter, they might not have both died of cancer.
