The world lost an icon last week, when film critic Roger Ebert passed away at 70, after a long, public battle with cancer. Like many others, it prompted me to look back at his reviews - some good, some not - of some of my favorite films. After research, I found that - as expected - every film included in Ebert's "Great Movies" list was certified "fresh" from Rotten Tomatoes. Even more interesting was the range of scored they received. So, in the coming posts, we'll look at the 50 films in the "Great Movies" series from Roger Ebert that have the lowest tomatometer ratings. They are listed in order - lowest rated (63) to highest (88) of the bottom 50. For each, I included the score, a snippet from a negative review of the film, and a quick write-up of each. Hope you enjoy - let's start at #50.
