Roger Ebert Dead at 70

Famed film critic Roger Ebert has passed away at the age of 70, the Chicago Sun Times reports.

The movie aficionado lost his battle with cancer after suffering on and off for many years.

“I am not going away. My intent is to continue to write selected reviews but to leave the rest to a talented team of writers hand-picked and greatly admired by me,” Roger wrote on his blog recently about his cancer recurrence.

In 2006, Roger battled cancer of the lower jaw, and lost his ability to eat and speak, but continued working as a critic.

Our thoughts go out to Roger‘s friends and family during this difficult time.
