Here's The Cinema Snob's review of Beyond The Valley of the Dolls/tribute to Roger Ebert, which is kind of fitting since Brad Jones was apparently inspired to base his critic character for his series of reviews of exploitation films on Ebert's disgusted and shocked reactionary review of Friday The 13th Part V!

As this 1983 Nightline clip demonstrates, for over thirty years, neither Simon nor Ebert drifted far from the elitist/specialist-v.-populist/humanist dichotomy that delighted their respective readers who could anticipate and be endlessly rewarded by this predictable collision.
