All the roles he's played - Starman, Junior Johnson, I mean Jackson, Flynn, etc. - and we've settled on The Dude.  And I'm OK with that.

I have got to watch that movie.

It's pretty funny how much that movie has impacted all three of the stars. Goodman has been in so many memorable roles, as well, and he still gets (and responds to) Lebowski quotes constantly (and has appeared at the festival several times, I beliece). Same with Buscemi - how many "you're out of your element"s has he suffered with a smile? They all seem to really embrace the whole thing and how it struck the subculture/pop culture bubble.

Oh come on. You did that just so we'd ask you THE question.

He was in so many good movies in the 70s. Last Picture Show. Fat City. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. Stay Hungry. Rancho Deluxe. Winter Kills. Hearts of the West. I just looked at his imdb page because I'd imagined his career had tailed off later, but his 80s and 90s work was almost as prolific as his 70s stuff. And recently he did fantastic work in Hell or High Water.

And even if he'd never appeared in a single movie, I think we'd know about him because of his hair. I haven't seen him post-chemo, but I bet he still has that amazing full head of hair.

He was wearing the Dude's Westerley at his Hollywood Star unveiling ...

He played a wonderful bad guy in Vanished. It was almost like a psychotic starman in presentation.

THIS! Some great small, human movies. Happy Birthday, cowboy.

We all love The Dude, but we mustn't forget that his Rooster Cogburn in the True Grit remake was amazing as well.

Winter Kills is one of the best movies ever made that few have watched. Book wasn't too shabby either.

Buscemi will always be Mr. Pink to me. And Goodman will always be Roseanne's husband. But Bridges is the Dude.

I watched an interview with Aaron Paul recently and he said to this day, every time he's out in public someone invariably yells "biatch!" at him.

Eh...I be would still say the Dude is his greatest role, but he was one hell of a villain in Iron Man.

I liked him in the original Tron, not the crummy sequel.

I like his character in King Kong more and more as time goes by.
Pretty ballsy dude, really.

Starman is pretty good too. Underrated flick.
 
2021-12-04 4:51:34 PM  
Happy birthday, guy whom I keep confusing with Jeff Daniels even though I'm familiar with and enjoy the work of both of them.
 
2021-12-04 4:56:02 PM  
OK. Whole flick? The Big Lebowski. Sure. Greatest moment? Right here. Here he's playing a young rich kid who's on the precipice of becoming a rich middle aged nonentity. There's nothing like ecstasy to kickstart a change.

"The Big Lebowski" is...not that great. I don't get the love for it.

I mean, it's ok. It's a Coen brothers movie, after all. Have they made a movie that wasn't at least decent? But "The Big Lebowski" is just kinda dull. The characters are good, but they don't do or say much that holds my attention.

It's All about the actors, man.

I think of the scene where he's trying to drive, every time I go through a yellow light.
