Roger Ebert Resumes Reviewing Movies for Chicago Sun-Times

Twelve days after losing a long battle with cancer, film critic Roger Ebert resumed reviewing movies for the Chicago Sun-Times this morning.

CST editor Gino McClaren confirmed last night that Ebert had come back to life – and back to the Chicago Sun-Times.

"He (Ebert) just walked into the building, went into his old office and sat down - like he never left," McClaren said, "It was definitely a shock, but I reinstated him immediately."

For his first review back, Ebert trained his critical eye on the Michael Bay-helmed action-comedy "Pain and Gain" featuring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

"Movie good," Ebert wrote, "Rock good. Rock make Roger laugh. Roger like Rock. Mark Wahlberg also good. Mark Wahlberg smash. Character development ok."

Ebert also reviewed Terrence Malick's latest opus "To the Wonder", which didn't earn the same praise from the venerable critic.

"'To the Wonder' bad!" Ebert penned, "Movie boring. Movie put Roger to sleep. Roger like Ben Affleck better in 'Reindeer Games'. Reindeer Games good movie. Timecop also good movie. Me tired."
