Just came across the link to a great article on Dudespaper. Clark Collis, from Entertainment Weekly, chimes in with life lessons learned from The Big Lebowski.
There has been a lot of presidential talk with Obama being elected, Oliver Stone's W coming out and Frost/Nixon being recently released. Many people bring up Jeff Bridges' performance in The Contender, which we reviewed in an episode a while back.
For those of you who have heard my thoughts on Terry Gilliam's Tideland, you most likely know my dislike for that film. I got suckered in by somebody telling me Jeff Bridges played "the dude" in it. Well, I didn't exactly agree with that synopsis and had to force myself to finish watching the thing. I found a blog with some thoughts on the movie, in defense of Gilliam's project. I can't say I've changed my mind, but some things make more sense now.
