WHO WANTS DESSERT
Back when Ebert gave movies less than 3 stars and didn't spend half his review complaining about 3d.
Jeriko-1
Back when his review didn't consist of "Aoughff mrrff wrhfmble!"

Syd Midnight
Lets be honest here, which sounds like the superior movie reviewing team: "a skinny guy and a fat guy" or "a ghost and a web-trolling cyborg"?

Caminante Nocturno
Robocop 2 doesn't get the respect it deserves.
1394
The only thing worse than Robocop 2 is Robocop 3.

memedumpster
And the TV series. And the cartoon. And the video game.

Aelric
Damned prophetic what they said about Eddie Murphy's career ten years before the implosion really began.
Old_Zircon
It's true, Ninja Turtles really IS an MTV disco dancing fight.
cognitivedissonance
It kinda feels to me that the Hollywood crumble was evident here, but it really DIDN'T take effect UNTIL Siskel died, and when Ebert dies, that's the final nail for quality.
SolRo
Can't wait for White Chicks 3

jangbones
yes, there is a giant lesson in this clip...all these movies blew, and yet the same shit still gets made, for twenty God damned years

sosage
My Mom took me to see Ghost Dad. She made it up to me with TMNT.

I dunno which version of Robocop 2 they saw. The one I watched was fun.
EvilHomer
"What intrigued me was the notion that kids would accept heroes who were turtles, who lived in the sewers and who ate cold pizza for breakfast. That's a long way from true justice and The American Way and Superman."

Screw you, Ebert, you miserable old fuddy-duddy.
kingofthenothing
Yeah, I thought that was pretty fucked up, too. Like all hero movies have to be the same thing HE likes or it's not any good and children are going to grow up wrong.

Tripitaka
If you want a decent review of art house, foreign, or independent cinema then Ebert is your guy. If you're looking for someone who is on the beating pulse of pop culture, comic books, alt comedy, or mindless popcorn flicks he will shit on everything you love.

StanleyPain
To be fair, if anyone had ever made a movie actually BASED on the original TMNT comics, it would be fucking awesome and not even Ebert would be complaining. Unfortunately, all we've had are shitty kids movies loosely based on the Archie comics travesty.

I was slightly too old to feel the full effects of turtle power at the time (12) but I saw a decent chunk of it on youtube a few months ago and I was surprised that it was pretty good. It has a strong moral backbone that movie versions of stuff like Superman and Batman lack just cos Shredder and the Foot seem like completely authentic, everyday villains by comparison to the stupid shit those movies have, and the turtles are much more relateable to kids despite being giant turtles. Ebert missed the mark badly there.

sosage
I would star stanley, but it's my video. The original comics were my first childhood experience of thinking something was cool and kinda deep (I was in middle school), then watching it get completely warped into a mainstream product that seemed shallow and shitty.

IrishWhiskey
Back in my day, heroes were a steroid freak dressed in an American flag, an uncontrollably violent green radioactive mutant, and an eccentric billionaire who ran around beating people up while dressed as a bat along with a young boy dressed in neon short shorts. You know, real role models.

poorwill
sosage/StanleyPain: But the live action movie *was* based on the comics. It had much more in common with them than it did the cartoon, tonally and story-wise.

chumbucket
Not sure what they expected, it was 1990.
joelkazoo
Blues Brothers notwithstanding, has Dan Aykroyd ever done a good movie?
poorwill
Ghostbusters. But that's all.

duck&cover
"Driving Miss Daisy"? Though that's more of a cameo.

hammsangwich
Spies Like Us?

joelkazoo
I forgot about Ghostbusters. Your other suggestions...no.

dairyqueenlatifah
A simpler time, back before internet review sites and IMAX 3D.
memedumpster
They didn't like Loose Cannons, Short Time, or Sibling Rivalry?

Fuck these people.
