BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Things kind of got off to a bad foot between cinema and marijuana with Reefer Madness in the 1930s, but since then we’ve seen pot-addled characters make us laugh, solve mysteries, and go on all kinds of crazy adventures. Now there’s a new stoner action-fest hitting theaters this weekend, so what better time to celebrate this grand history?
In The Big Lebowski, the title character has a number of habits, and the founder of Lebowski Fest recently found out that at least one of them will land you in jail.
Every year since 1989, the National Film Registry has done its part to ensure the continued existence of the greatest and most important movies ever made. They do this by adding 25 titles at a time to the Library of Congress, where they are maintained and kept in the hopes of keeping them around forever.

Bill Hader is not a comedy giant. He’s not toppling new efforts that are making $100 million, and he’s not the first comedian any of our moms would think of. Among comedy nerds, however, it’s hard to find many more people who would garner more respect than the former Saturday Night Live star.
Jeff Bridges might be known primarily as The Dude, but once you've read some of the stuff he's said in his recent AMA, you'll see him in a completely different light. You'll also probably want to take up the art of Zen, so we're not held responsible for your potential future oneness.
Despite their fame and iconography, no one has yet tried to make a big screen sequel or spinoff to a Coen brothers film. Sure, they've done it on TV: the recent Fargo on FX was the second of two televised attempts to capitalize on that film. But we haven't had to sit through Barton Fink Returns; we've never met A More Serious Man; and we haven't yet caught O Brother, I Found You. But are you ready to mess with Big Lebowski's the Jesus once more?
The “Dude” isn’t the only all-star coming to California for this year’s fest. THR says the Kyle Gass Band will perform. The fest also will feature film memorabilia, music from additional special guests and a screening of the film.
"The Big Lipinksi" shows the celebrated figure skater strutting her stuff while dabbling in some genderswap cosplay as The Big Lebowski's central hero, The Dude. Of course, she's sporting sunglasses, boxers shorts, a white V-neck tee, and a big, comfy-looking brown robe...
It's not just the stellar cast and the Oscar-nominated director that makes Prisoners look like more than your average kidnapping thriller. Like many of the most gorgeous films of the last decade Prisoners was shot by cinematographer Roger Deakins, the 10-time Oscar nominee whose work on films like No Country for Old Men, Skyfall and The Man Who Wasn't There has created some of the most gorgeous images in film history
The Big Lebowski is my favorite comedy of all time. I’ve watched it an uncountable number of times and I’m still sent into hysterics by every plot twist and eccentric character. I can play back the entire movie in my head and I’ll still laugh at every joke. But the truth is that I’m just one in a million.
Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and T. Bone Burnett are scheduled to attend the event, which takes place Tuesday, Aug. 16 and also serves as the launch party for Bridges’ self-titled album, which Burnett produced. (What, Tara Reid was too busy?)
Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski from the Coen brother's cult film The Big Lebowski may dress like a schlub and be epically unemployed, but die hard fans know why he's not really hurting for cash or living on the streets. In an early draft of script it was revealed that The Dude was heir of the inventor of the Rubik's Cube and never really had to do much in the way of work.
The once-respected character actor best known for collaborating with the likes of Spike Lee and the Coen brothers apparently has spent so much time on Bay’s inane Transformers franchise that he’s now convinced everything needs a sequel or a spin-off
The Dude is going high-def (as opposed to merely high) with a new limited-edition Blu-ray this August. Universal Studios Home Entertainment has released full details for the August 16th release, which will package the remastered flick with a 28-page companion book and new bonus features. Even the nihilists will love it.
The sweater worn by Jeff Bridges for The Big Lebowski is being auctioned off Saturday and Sunday, May 14 and 15, through Profiles In History, a Hollywood memorabilia house located in Beverly Hills. In addition to the sweater, Profiles is hawking a fully functional Chitty Chitty Bang Bang automobile and an “Everlasting Gobstopper” used in 1971’s Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
Tara Reid was in The Big Lebowski. You barely remember her being in it, because she played what is without question the most minor part in a movie filled with minor characters. Even the nihilists are more memorable than her character, Bunny, the wife of the Big Lebowski.
The Coen brother's The Big Lebowski is as close to a perfect comedy that I've ever seen. It's a film that blends a group
What do you do when the Hollywood actor whose likeness you’ve been profiting off of without his permission, actually shows up at the front door of your marginally legal t-shirt operation
When I think Big Lebowski, the last thing I think of is sex. Sure it contains some nudity and there is a vaguely erotic scene in which a ferret meets up with a very naked Dude in a bathtub
