Hard to believe that today marks 20 years since we lost film critic Gene Siskel.
Many people remember watching him and Roger Ebert review selected movies on the film review show "Siskel and Ebert" on TV back in the 90s.
My mom and I would watch it when I was a kid back then. Siskel and Ebert's show had an influence on what movies we were going to see at the movie theater.
Siskel and Ebert changed the way how we look at movies and trademarked the signature "Thumbs Up/Down" review style. Their version of the show lasted for 24 years (1975-1999). They became household names along the way. Both of them appeared at awards ceremonies, talk shows, and other special events. They inspired many to go into film and/or film criticism.
The show continued after Siskel's passing with Ebert co-hosting alongside a rotation of guests until Richard Roeper became a permanent co-host in the 2000s; the name changed to "Ebert and Roeper" once they settled on Roeper and that version lasted until 2010.
It is because of Siskel's namesake that we have the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago. Various types of movies (i.e. Foreign films, Indies, etc) are screened there each week. Siskel's legacy lives on at the theater and elsewhere in Chicago.
May he Rest in Peace. 📺🎥🎬
resta scemo ma allo stesso tempo grande,
rimani dolce ma anche freddo.
Rimani per chi c'è sempre stato per te.
Ma sempre pronto ad aiutare il prossimo.
Rimani geloso di me,
quando fingi di non esserlo ma dentro scoppi di gelosia.
Rimani sorridente quel sorriso che fa invidia al mondo.
Ma soprattutto rimani innamorato.
Ma innamorato di me e basta.
La vita è lunga,bella,triste,unica.
Ma se un giorno cadrai io ti darò la mano e sarò lì per tirarti su.
Ma non solo io ma tutte le persone che ti vogliono bene.
Non sarai mai solo.
E non ti lascerò mai.
Anche se abbiamo età diverse affronteremo questa vita insieme.
Sarò sempre vicino a te.
Con la pioggia e con il sole.
BUON COMPLEANNO AMORE MIO.
Auguri per questi tuoi 20 anni.
Sei la mia vita♥️ #20years#auguriamoremio#20anni#felice#likesforfollow

Almost 23 years ago, in the middle of the summer of ’96, I arrived in British Columbia with 2 boxes, a job at the Gap, and a place to live. I guess now that I think about it, I also had a little thing called an unwavering determination that this was where I was supposed to be. I didn’t know why. I didn’t even think about why. I just knew that that was what was supposed to happen. I had never been to BC before that summer. I knew 3 people and nothing else. The internet wasn’t really a thing yet so all I had in my head were images from Expo ’86 10 years earlier. I guess that’s all I needed. I settled in. I quit the Gap. I went to school. School quit me. I was sad. But not for long.
Exactly 20 years ago, on a predictably dark and rainy Vancouver night, I arrived at a party with a group of friends, a ticket in hand, and ready to dance. Little did I know that I was less than an hour away from looking across the room and into the bluest eyes I had ever seen. I didn’t hesitate. I didn’t have too. It was easy. Because sometimes things are easy. And I’m thankful for the easy times. I’m thankful for the easy times and those beautiful blue eyes.
Happy 20 years pal... You are my everything.

To Mahhh Best Fwiend ❤️ It’s hard keep in touch with friends from the beginning of time, but we have made our relationship last over the past 20 years! Two flipping decades. CRAZINESS. Thank you for the endless laughs and adventures, for encouraging me to be my goofy self, and for sticking with me since kindergarten. I hope you have THE BEST of birthdays and we set out on another adventure REAL SOON. Love ya bestie.
PS: The dichotomy of the two images is the perfect “Expectation vs Reality” LOL .
I can’t believe it’s been 20 years. For 20 years I have never came to his grave on the day on his passing. Too much painful memories. Usually on this day I do nothing. I stay in bed, in my room, take a personal day from work and just be internal. But after 20 years I wanted to come and sit with him and talk. Been here by myself a few hours now and it’s been a nice peaceful chat with my old man. I miss him every single day and I hope he know how much I love him and how many lives he’s reached with his music. You were one of a kind pop. I love you! #20years#mackeyfeary#kalapana#legend#hawaiimusic#islandmusic#noonelikeyou
