Don't ask me why, but I've been going down a pretty deep YouTube rabbit hole of old Siskel & Ebert reviews.

It started when I became curious about what the two critics thought of my favorite movie, 1998's The Big Lebowski (they were split). But then I just started clicking on more and more Siskel & Ebert videos. "Siskel & Ebert's Best of 1992," "Siskel & Ebert's Worst of 1995", etc.

I couldn't stop.

Obviously, they're both dead. Gene Siskel died in 1999 and Roger Ebert died in 2013. So what exactly was my fascination with two dead film critics?

I don't really know. But I do know these two guys had a nationally syndicated TV show for a reason. They were smart, insightful, and very funny. When they disagreed, it was particularly entertaining. There was just something about their back-and-forth dynamic that worked. Lord knows I didn't agree with them half the time, but that wasn't really the point of watching them.
