It may be difficult to overstate the influence of Siskel and Ebert over the last forty years and whether you liked them or not (Wenatchee enjoyed them) their influence is palpable. 

It may be worth noting that Ebert got his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  After all, some people parade their ignorance of the beauty of criticism as an art form and a fine body of literature by occasionally tweeting to the effect that nobody ever made a monumen to a critic. ;)
