I remember them being so big in the 80's - because before Rotten Tomatoes...they were IT.
People would say..."we need to see this...Siskel and Ebert liked it." - This usually meant it must be good because their shtick was being split. Their TV show seemed to be always on.
I always thought Ebert just loved everything and Siskel was more discriminating and sophisticated as a child.
Now after reading Eberts blog as an adult and looking back...I'm realizing that Siskel just hated pretty much everything that was commercially successful.
