Ebert was revered for his passionate love of movies, his acumen in celebrating the first-rate, and his witty demolition of the mediocre or worse. “No bad movie is short enough.” His writing was noted, too, for the occasionally mocking sarcasm he would bring to an unfavourable review – of M Night Shyamalan’s The Village, he wrote of the final revelation of the secret “twist”: “it’s so witless, in fact, that when we do discover the secret, we want to rewind the film so we don’t know the secret anymore.” Occasionally his reviews took the form of mock interviews or conversations, stories, poems or songs.
