The Big Lebowski is the cult classic to reign over all cult classics. There are many factors that make up the movie’s legacy, but most notable of them all are the performances by Jeff Bridges (The Dude) and John Goodman as (Walter). Despite both having illustrious careers, these characters will rank among their most beloved work, and will be admired long after the two have dissolved from the earth. So,... Read More »

To those wishing to escape a world that continues to ignite itself under the header of “biggest dumpster fire here,” few things can offer that reprieve better than a reinvigorated Jeff Bridges bringing his iconic “The Dude” back to life, even if it’s for a brief moment. Even better is seeing the underappreciated, underrated John Goodman being awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Combining the two makes for a gleeful experience for all cinephiles in the audience and watching from their laptop screens.

Jeff Bridges revived “The Dude” as John Goodman got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday. Bridges donned his character’s sweater from “The Big Lebowski” for the first time in nearly 20 years as he praised one-time co-star Goodman — and his character from Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1998 cult hit, Walter […] »

Jeff Bridges resurrected his beloved "the Dude" from The Big Lebowski Friday, donning the character's signature cardigan sweater while honoring his co-star John Goodman at that actor's Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.
Bridges took the podium in a suit jacket before swapping it out for the Dude's sweater; Goodman played the Dude's buddy Walter in the Coen Brothers' 1998 cult comedy, one of the actor's favorite roles.
From there, Bridges delivered a speech honoring Goodman in the style of Walter's eulogy for Donny (played by Steve Buscemi) in the film, Time reports. »
Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski made an appearance during John Goodman’s Hollywood Walk of Fame induction ceremony on March 10. Donning the iconic knit sweater worn by his character in “The Big Lebowski,” actor Jeff Bridges was at hand to honor his longtime friend and co-star in the Coen Brothers’ 1998 comedy. Bridges delivered a hilarious speech inspired by the scene in which Walter (Goodman) gives a rambling eulogy for Donny (Steve Buscemi), as he and The Dude (Bridges) stand by the sea to scatter Donny’s ashes, and the whole ceremony gets ruined by the strong wind.

If you ever needed a reason to like Jeff Bridges any more than you do now, look no further than John Goodman’s walk of fame ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard. As many of you already know the two will forever be immortalized for their roles in The Big Lebowski. In what has to be considered The Coen Brothers best movie, Bridges’ Jeff Lebowski and Goodman’s Walter Sobchak will always go down as being one of the best movie duos of all-time. So what better a way to pay tribute to his good friend on the walk of fame then by reviving

The Roseanne alum received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Friday, and the honoree had the best time during his ceremony.
Aside from hamming it up for the cameras (see the photos below), Goodman, 64, was all smiles as he listened to heartfelt speeches given by his Kong: Skull Island costar Brie Larson and The Big Lebowski costar Bridges.
“He’s a good actor, he’s a good man, John Goodman,” Bridges said, after changing into hisLebowski character’s signature knit sweater.
“He’s one of us, he loves the outdoors and acting. »

John Goodman received a long-deserved star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame on Friday, and a miracle occurred: Jeff Bridges brought The Dude out of retirement. The two pals famously costarred in 1998's The Big Lebowski, and Goodman was delighted to see that Bridges had brought along his oversize sweater in honor of the occasion. Not only did Bridges dress the part, but he gave his whole speech in Dude mode. Let us treasure this moment. »

Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski was brought back to life on Hollywood Boulevard, but this time, he was the one who delivered a eulogy for a friend, and it ended with “Good afternoon, sweet prince,” rather than good night.
At John Goodman’s Walk of Fame ceremony, Jeff Bridges donned “The Dude’s” signature, quirky, knit sweater, and delivered a typically rambling and hilarious rendition of the eulogy that Walter gives before scattering Donny’s ashes in the 1998 Coen Brothers cult classic “The Big Lebowski.”
Bridges asked Goodman to hold his suit and bag for him, and as he drew out “The Dude’s” poncho-like garment, a loud cheer erupted from the crowd when they realized one of cinema’s most iconic slackers was about to be reincarnated in front of them.

With his jocular, yet authoritative voice matched with a wide grin and gleaming eyes, John Goodman could very well be the definition of a character actor. The guy filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen routinely cast as the sidekick who lands some of the most memorable lines in their movies or whom Lorne Michaels frequently calls up to host and guest star on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” With the latter, it helps that he seems comfortable with dressing in drag.
And, despite being a marquee name with a scroll of TV, film, and theater credits, Goodman is perfectly fine with this distinction. “I still consider myself a character actor,” Goodman says. “I think it’s a good thing. I think every actor’s a character actor to a certain extent. Character actor has a lot of different definitions. I’m just a mutt. I just keep going for the bone. »

I will admit, I was not onboard with Kong: Skull Island until I finally got around to watching the 1st trailer and Wow, was I impressed. This final trailer is amazing, and it shows us quite a few treats. The biggest treat of the entire film is the perfect cast. Check it out here:
First, John C. Reilly quite possibly one of the most versatile actors ever to be born. I think Days of Thunder is the first film I saw him in, where he plays a slightly comedic, yet mixed, role. Of course, we can skip over quite a bit of movies and go to Step Brothers, but if we do we miss some of his dramatic acting like in Gangs of New York, Magolia, and possibly even in Boogie Nights (debatable role there). We recently saw him in Guardians of the Galaxy, where he has a level of dry humor, »

Come Sunday, a.k.a. Oscars night, we'll all be tipping our hats to the year's winners. But before we do that, here's to the "losers" – the worthy ones of 2016 that, for whatever cockamamie reason, didn't even get a nomination.
In an effort to do right where the Academy effed up, I give you the Travers Awards – my own personal version of the Alt-Oscars. (For those of you playing along at home, the award is an engraved image of a critic screaming.) It's one last chance to single out the »

If you're going to spend millions of dollars on a Super Bowl commercial, you might as well do something special and have a well-known director at the helm. Many of the ads playing during Super Bowl Li are indeed from established filmmakers. And for a special distinction this year two of the spots will be produced and broadcast live, one by Peter Berg and another starring Adam Driver. Mercedez Directed by the Coen Brothers (The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men, Hail Caesar!) Starring Peter Fonda with a nod to his role in Easy Rider Wix Directed by Louis Letterrier (The Transporter, The Incredible Hulk, Now You See Me) Starring Jason Statham (The Transporter) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) Kia Directed...

Joel and Ethan Coen have lured moviegoers to films ranging from “The Big Lebowski” to “No Country for Old Men.” Can they now direct football fans to blow tens of thousands of dollars on a new Mercedes?
That will be the challenge come Sunday, when a 30-second ad will air during Super Bowl Li featuring Peter Fonda, the auto manufacturer’s slick Amg roadster, and a gang of burly bikers listening to Steppenwolf’s “Born to be Wild.” The question, of course, will be if the Coens can make the kind of art that leads to commerce.
Based on the teaser made available online – a 60-second behemoth that will no doubt be ill-served by the editor’s knife when it is cut down to half that length – the answer may be “No.” After spending time with the colorful denizens of the tavern (it’s called “Tiny’s,” by the way) it’s hard to figure out why »
