* RedOniBlueOni: Siskel generally came off as the Red Oni to Ebert's Blue Oni. Ebert's tastes tended to be more highbrow, and Siskel's more mainstream, as exemplified by their all-time favorite films: ''Film/LaDolceVita'' for Ebert, ''Film/SaturdayNightFever'' for Siskel.

* InsultToRocks: Discussing ''Film/{{Ishtar}}'' on their Worst of '87 special, Gene Siskel said "I just saw ''[[Film/RoadTo Road to Morocco]]'', and it is funnier than ''Ishtar''--of course, that's really, I guess, an insult to ''Road to Morocco''. Anything is funnier than ''Ishtar''--except ''Film/LeonardPart6''."

Gene Siskel (January 26, 1946 February 20, 1999) was the film critic for the Chicago ''Tribune''. Along with Creator/RogerEbert, he was one-half of the weekly film review show ''Series/SiskelAndEbert: At the Movies.'' The two of them rated films with a simple system: thumbs up or down, with a brief discussion of a film's strengths and/or weaknesses before presenting a verdict.
