Joyful Critic Joel Siegel, Gone at 63


Surrounded by family and friends, ABC's beaming and insightful movie critic Joel Siegel has died in New York, after a long and remarkably courageous struggle with cancer, at the age of 63.

Both colleagues and fans delighted in his unique way of blending cheerful good humor and piercing critical acumen in reviews that made them instantly clear to anyone. You knew exactly what he thought — often with the bonus of a good laugh

Hi Kevin,

Sorry to hear this. I liked Joel Siegel.

I'll probably go back to blog soon. I was hoping Sam would ban the anon, but, not yet.

I'm thinking it is one anon that named himself "kennie" in one of the anon posts.

How're you doing?
