I don't really have a list if the best, but I know who the absolute worst is:  Peter Travers of ROLLING STONE, without a doubt.

Subject: [SCREEN-L] film critics

The announcement today that "Ebert and Roeper" were going off the air came at one of those serendipitous times for me, as I've been thinking a lot about film critics--who they are, where they come from, how (or if) they are trained or schooled.

I was wondering if those of you on the list would be interested in sharing your list of the top film critics/reviewers (not scholars), past and present.
