Monster Hunt 2

A small, but noteworthy amount of charm sets this disposable bauble apart from other films that came before it.

"What Roger Meant To Us": A Panel at Elmhurst College

This Sunday, Elmhurst College is presenting a panel discussion entitled "What Roger Meant to Us," and I know it is going to be a wonderful event. The panel will include: Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune, who was a regular guest on "At the Movies with Ebert & Roper" and later teamed with A.O. Scott to review movies for "At the Movies,"; Roger's Sun-Times colleague Neil Steinberg; and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, who appeared on "Ebert Presents: At the Movies" and writes for this site. Chicago journalist Rick Kogan will moderate the panel. What a wonderful group of people to share their memories and their thoughts on Roger's impact. I look forward to the event, and knowing this group, I expect both tears and laughter.

I was looking at Elmhurst College's mission statement, and it struck me how much their core values resonate with the things Roger believed matter: intellectual excellence; community; social responsibility; stewardship; and faith, meaning and values.

The event takes place at Elmhurst College's Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel at 7pm on Sunday, November 10. Tickets are $20 for the public, free for students. Get more information here.
