Roger Ebert’s ongoing cancer treatment has kept him out of the movie game for awhile but he’s making a slow comeback, reviewing about one new film per week. He didn’t care much for “Ocean’s Thirteen,” and in one of his patented digressions he’s reminded of something entirely different:
I am reminded of that IMAX documentary about climbing Mt. Everest. All I could think of was, if it’s hard for the climbers, think about how hard it is for the guys carrying the big IMAX camera up the mountain. I wanted to see a doc about them.
Ebert’s wit was missed last year.
