Roger Ebert: The rational film critic

Top film critic Roger Ebert understands the necessity of transitivity (and completeness) that makes up a rational preference:
Do the math. If one week you state, "'Mr. Untouchable' makes 'American Gangster' look like a fairy tale," and the next week we say, "American Gangster" was "Goodfellas" for "the next generation," then you must conclude that "Mr. Untouchable" is better than "Goodfellas."
