To call someone a Roger Ebert is to say that they are a naive pompous asshat with no credibility. It is most often used to describe people who spout their opinion on subjects they know little to nothing about.
This slang term became increasingly popular when the Pulitzer prize winning film critic declared that "video games can never be art," all while stubbornly refusing to play any of the great games of the medium. He found it unnecessary to experience an art form before denouncing its entire artistic merit.
"You hate the book, but you just said you never read it - way to pull a Roger Ebert."
|2.||The Roger Ebert|
The act of a standing 69 in which you also penetrate the anal sphincter by giving the "two thumbs down" rating. This may be given in the event of a poor effort regarding the lower half of the standing 69. Or straight boredom. Also can be referred to as simply "The Ebert". Patent pending on the "Ebert and Roper".
Brought the spinner home from the bar. She had the oral ability of a teething todler. In response to her lack of skill during our standing 69 session, I decided to rate her performance by giving the "two thumbs down" rating, thus invoking the Roger Ebert.
similar to beef between rappers, except with critics. similar to Robert Ebert calling out Ben Lyons or david drake and chris weingarten coming to fisticuffs.
man did you see the editors of Rolling Stone and Spin fighting? such critbeef.
Kristen Stewart is a talented young American actress. She is best known for her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight Saga (though critically it is not her best work). She recently recieved critical praise for both her films "The Runaways" based on the 1970's all girl rock band (Stewart portrays Joan Jett) and "Welcome to the Rileys". Both films recieved high praise at the 2010 Sundance Film Festivile. Famed film critic Roger Ebert recently said of Kristen "she stewart is simply a wonderful actress". She has also starred in the "Panic Room", "Speak", "The Messengers", and the Sean Penn directed, SAG nominated film "Into the Wild".
Despite her success the public is very critical of Stewart, mostly because of her performance in the Twilight films. Many people who have only seen her performance in Twilight make assumptions about her acting skills overall. She has also been dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson since 2009. She has admitted to being not the best at public speaking but continues to improve (re: 2010 oscars, Jay Leno apperance)
She refuses to change for anyone despite her many haters and sticks to her gut. Basically you either love her or hate her.
Person 1: Have you seen Twilight?
Person 2: Yeah, Kristen Stewart wasn't that great but, neither was the character in general. She was great in The Runaways!
Person 1: i agree! people are so rude about her based on one movie and they're soo jealous of her (hello rpattz!)
