Below is a video in which Siskel and Ebert reviewed 'Full Metal Jacket'...Roger wasn't impressed with the movie but thought Vincent was good. It turned into a heated argument between the duo. Roger Ebert passed away from cancer which had come back after being afflicted years back when he had most of his jaw removed. Just recently, he had fallen for the second time and broke a bone and when it was found the cancer had returned. His courage and inspiration will be remembered in facing the public with his deformed face for an article that shocked many. It did not stop him from continuing his reviews that were written because he could no longer speak nor could he eat and took nutrition through a feeding tube. There's an aisle seat for you in Heaven, Roger; rest easy.
