the cricket:  "Wouldn't it be cool if we were like Siskel and Ebert, and had our own show and everything?"

the ladybug:  "That would be cool.  But I want to be Ebert.  You're the dead one."

the cricket:  "You'd rather be the short one?"

the ladybug:  "You'd rather be the bald one?"

the cricket:  "Wait, I just had a scary thought:  what if one of us were like that Roeper guy?"

the ladybug:  "Yikes.  In that case, I'd rather be the dead guy."
"It's not that tough being a film cricket."
-- Homer Simpson

Ah, Homer, if only that were true.  The truth is, not everyone has what it takes to be a film crick--er, critic.  But as that other saying goes, everyone's a critic, and so with that in mind, we invite you to read what our illustrious film critics,
the cricket and guest-reviewer the ladybug, have to say about film.

Movie Quote of the Day

Humbert Humbert:  What I heard then was the melody of children at play. Nothing but that. And I knew that the hopelessly poignant thing was not Lolita's absence from my side, but the absence of her voice from that chorus.

-Lolita (1997)
