Greetings, Mr. Roeper.I look forward to reading your movie reviews.I'm always interested in your opinion.I've noticed you often use the phrase "killed it" to describe a great job by the actor.Maybe because I'm a hospital chaplain and see alot of death, maybe that's why I'm bothered by that expression.
Plus, it doesn't make sense to me to use a word associated with suffering and grief as a compliment. I'm writing to ask if you would consider using a different phrase. Just my two cents.I miss listening to you and Roe on WLS.
I thought you added so much to the show. I wouldn't bother listening if you weren't on.All the best to you, sir.I wish you continued success.Kevin Cassidy

Mr. Roper, I watched the Movie, Being There with my son a couple of nights ago. Still a great flick.
That said, I am driving myself nuts in that I really think I saw a quick cameo of Yakov Smirnoff in the scene with Richard Baseheart (played a Russian Ambasador) and secondly, I also think I saw Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad) in a quick cameo shot of the Band Director just as Sellers walks onto the pseudo Tonight Show.
Am I nuts just like my wife says??
Thanks for your help.

You're great. I wish you'd do another show like Ebert&Roeper.

I was looking for a review for the movie "Still Alice" for which Julienne Moore is nominated. Is a review available? Thanks

Do you think Charlie Huhnam would have been great in the role? Or who do you think would have nailed the Christian Grey role?

Dear Mr. Roeper,
I understand you read Fifty Shades of Grey but did you understand it? Did you understand the ultimate story line? I agree it was not well written and the grammar and repeated phrases grew tiresome. However underneath all of it there was a tremendous love story. BDSM was less than half of what this story was about. Did you feel the story, did you find the wanton desire that came with it's passing chapters? You are not a woman, you wouldn't understand. What I was hoping you would say in your column but you didn't is the number of seemingly young adults that found their way into the theater. My husband graciously attended the movie with me and we were dismayed at the number of young woman who were more than younger than 17 years of age in theater. You should have cautioned parents and guardians alike to make sure their children avoided this hugely adult themed movie. Instead you ranted about Dakota Johnson's not being a conventional movie star beauty. She had a simple elegance that screamed Anastasia Steele! I am even more disappointed that you didn't find that the humor fell in exactly the right places and the courage it must have take both of them to do roles like this? Could you, could expose your body and emotional well being, probably not but you can criticize others for it. As per usual your review was clearly ignored based on the millions of dollars it generated this weekend alone. Can I you give you a word of advice? Don't tread where you are not familiar. Clearly this movie was above your pay grade.

Man oh man you were spot on with your review of Jupiter Ascending. I saw it tonight and even the amazing Imax 3D visuals couldn't keep this film from being boring and unintentionally hysterical. I honestly had to see for myself if it was as bad as you say since, most of the time, my opinion tends to be similar with yours; that and I was genuinely interested in the film to begin with...
Question: Will you be reviewing Kingsman: The Secret Service? That's the next must-see film for myself and I'd love to hear a review!

Lucy in your top ten worse films of 2014 are you serious?! Luc Besson is hit and miss and Lucy was fairly silly but an enjoyable romp none the less and Scarlett was great. I mean (to quote Kermode), in the same running time as "Lets be Cops" Besson reinvents the human race while in that film a couple of guys dress up as cops...how did that not make the top 10? Grace of Monaco?
