  1. Jason, I’m not a huge fan of the new either, but at least it wasn’t just thrown up because he died — Ebert had been working on the new site for ages, and it just happened to be a double whammy (he dies, then the site changes) because he died so close to the planned release date.

    P.S. A good movie website is, which aggregates awards show predictions, including the Oscars.

  2. Hi Ken,
    I didn’t realize that about Roger I’m glad you told me, because now I can let it go and just get used to the new look. And thanks for the site recommendation! We appreciate you listening to The Donut Show.
