'Big Lebowski,' 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' Added to National Film Registry

17 December 2014 10:44 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The National Film Registry of the Library of Congress has selected a new crop of movies that it deems culturally, historically or aesthetically significant enough for preservation. Among the 25 films selected are two cult-favorite slacker adventure epics: the Coen brothers' The Big Lebowski and John Hughes' Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The Library praised the "highly quoted" Lebowski's themes of "alienation, inequality and class structure" and for positioning star Jeff Bridges in a career-defining role, and it described Hughes' first film on the registry as a "career highpoint" significant for »

'The Big Lebowski,' 'Rosemary’s Baby, 'Saving Private Ryan,' 'Willy Wonka' & More Join The National Film Registry

17 December 2014 9:50 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The terms of the National Film Preservation Act, which the Library of Congress' National Film Registry operates under each year, are simple: they recognize 25 films that are at least ten years old, and that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant. While you may weep for the current state of soulless sequels, blockbusters, and franchises, just remember, these movies will be preserved for all time. "The Big Lebowski," "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off," "Rosemary’s Baby," "Saving Private Ryan," "Rio Bravo," "Little Big Man," and "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" are among the highlights of this year's entries. We're tickled to know that generations from now, audiences will know that the rug really tied to the room together, and that you could skip school, party in downtown Chicago, and still not get caught. Ranging from silent shorts to horror classics, 2014's honorees capture a nice swath of »

The National Film Registry Adds The Big Lebowski, Willy Wonka, Ferris Bueller’S Day Off, Rosemary’S Baby, and More

17 December 2014 7:44 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Every year, the members of the National Film Preservation Board (Nfpb) selects 25 films to be added to the Registry, and these films will be preserved in the Library of Congress for all-time due to their significant contribution to American society.  After watching the great documentary These Amazing Shadows (which is about the National Film Registry) several years ago, I wondered when The Big Lebowski would get in.  A couple years ago I was still wondering the same thing.  For a movie that didn't blow up the box office when it was released or rack up tons of awards, it has entered the national consciousness and even created an annual festival that's been going around the country since 2002. Today, The Dude is finally in the registry.  The Nfpb have announced their selections, and The Big Lebowski is among them.  Other films added to the registry include Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, »

5 New Seventh Son Clips & A Featurette

14 December 2014 5:27 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Did you know the Legendary's Seventh Son was supposed to be released all the way back in February of 2013? Of course, it was pushed back. Not once, not twice, but thrice! Now that I think, it could've be four times, but either way it isn't a very good sign. If a studio was confident with the product it would've been out by now.  Perhaps these five clips and this one feature, which feature Jeff Bridges ("The Big Lebowski") and Julianne Moore ("The Big Lebowski"), will tempt your tummy ... with the taste of nuts and honey. I'm sorry, I couldn't start that line and not finish it. In a time long past, an evil is about to be unleashed that will reignite the war between the forces of the supernatural and humankind once more. Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin »

The 2014 Sad Bastard Awards: 'Mockingjay,' 'Oitnb,' 'Game of Thrones,' Grammys

13 December 2014 1:12 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Moe from "The Simpsons." All of Damien Rice's albums. "Winnie the Pooh's" Eyeore. Steve Buscemi's Seymour in "Ghost World." Sad bastards are sometimes the leads, like Matthew McConaughey's Rusty in "True Detective" or Hazel in "Fault in Our Stars." Sometimes they're just the whipping boy like Philip Seymour Hoffman in "The Big Lebowski" or the stricken Ellinor in "The Knick." And sometimes they're not even characters: they're just Drake. Sad sacks deserve their own recognition, because we kind of love them due to, in spite of and aside from their sinking-rock sulk. So as part of our Year-End roundup from 2014, we've decided to recognize the sourest, most unfortunate characters in TV movies and even music: The 2014 HitFix Sad Bastard Awards. Check out who we picked from "Mad Men," "Rectify," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay," the Grammys, "Game of Thrones," "Orange Is The New Black" and more. »

Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings

12 December 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Cecil B. DeMille's 1956 epic The Ten Commandments is in no danger of being dethroned by this week's Ridley Scott-directed movie Exodus: Gods and Kings. This film has so many problems, I don't know where to start throwing the blame. Let's call this one (scripted by the brilliant team behind Tower Heist) the worst story that should never be told.

Perhaps we should start with the whitewashing of its cast. Christian Bale picks up Charlton Heston's sword as Moses, the slave prince. The central conflict is set up between him and Joel Edgerton's Rameses as a prophecy hints the adopted Moses might one day take his place as leader. Joining them are Sigourney Weaver who has no more than two lines as Rameses' mother and John Turturro as the wise old Pharoah Seti. I respect and admire Turturro's acting, but still have to suppress a chuckle that »

Inherent Vice Is Groovy, Funny, and Strange

12 December 2014 8:14 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After two viewings, I still don’t know what Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice adds up to, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing: Why should a movie add up to anything? It’s not a theorem. Interstellar adds up to something, and it’s unintentionally hilarious. Inherent Vice, which is set in 1970 in a beach town south of L.A., is like a gorgeous stoner art object, and maybe you need to get baked to be on its dissonant, erratic wavelength. It’s groovy, distant, funny — funny strange and funny ha-ha. It’s drugged camp. It’s like nothing else.Except maybe the novel, which is Thomas Pynchon’s contribution to the L.A. stoner private-eye genre, the highest (so to speak) achievements of which are on film: Robert Altman’s take on Raymond Chandler’s The Long Goodbye and Joel and Ethan Coen’s The Big Lebowski. »
