Pleasant enough but never quite as emotionally gripping as a coming-of-age story about acceptance can be, Troop Zero scores a handful of memorable moments when…
From Doriano Carta (@Paisano):
Roger Ebert. Should be ashamed of himself for ignoring most of us on there.
I've written dozens of tweets to him and asked countless movie related questions and he has NEVER once replied to me. Not once! I've noticed he rarely ever addresses anyone else either. He just shares things and that's it. This isn't about just broadcasting but communicating too. This life is about connecting with other human beings. I understand he's current health issues and that he's got a large fan base and all that, but it does not take any effort or time to reply with a simple kind word, even a thank you. I think he would feel awful if he knew how cold and mean he seems to a lot of us. I won't even follow him on twitter anymore because he doesn't follow anyone back and never acknowledges any of us commoners. Like all celebrities and pseudo celebrities he only communicates with other famous folks. That's a stupid philosophy that only limits their human experience.
I just wanted to let him know that he's hurting himself too by not being nice to other people, not just me. Especially people who admire the work he's done.
Ebert: I follow 226 people on Twitter. How many tweets do you think I can read? I have 425,000 followers. How many can I reply to? I write a blog. How many comments have you posted? Not one that I can find. I have a day job. If I sent a kind word to everyone, that would be my day.
