Renowned film critic Roger Ebert died today, two days after announcing he was taking a “leave of presence.”

His blog has focused on far more than just film, revealing a talented journalist and an inspiring human whose disease has left him unable to speak since 2006. Even his musings on such seemingly mundane topics as a rice cooker were witty and catching.

In honor of the loss of a great journalist and a beloved Chicago staple, here’s Ebert’s 1987 review of Santa Cruz fave, “The Lost Boys.” (Spoiler alert: He didn’t give it two thumbs up.)
