Imminent Rue-age Watch


Sheila and the Chai-rista are both waxing enthusiastically about Philip Seymor Hoffman today.

Of course, regular readers of our little opus will remember that one of my guiding principles in life is "What Would Dusty Do?"

(Incidently, The Big Lebowski, which I haven't yet seen, is in my newly reloaded Netflix queue.)

The Big Lebowski is such a trip. I think that and Fargo are my two favorite Coen brothers films.

Get ready for a heaping dose of potty mouth. Make sure the ettes are safely asleep before rolling it.
A little cursing is one thing but, about half way through the movie I was exhausted from it.

On the other hand, one of my favorite movie lines comes from the Big L; "This isn't Vietnam, this is bowling!"

As a potty mouthed broad myself, I had no problem with the language. I just thought the movie was so BIZARRE - I have seen it many times and I still enjoy it, and I still can't get to the bottom of it.

Particularly the dream sequences - when Jeff Bridges floats down this bowling alley ... So psychedelic, so funny. And John Goodman was so hysterical.

"Ah, don't worry about them. They're just nihilists."

Llama-ettes to be securely sequestered.

Funny thing about John Goodman - I really don't like him. But I thought he was terrific in Raising Arizona. And I imagine he's much the same in TBL. There's a whole host of actors who I really don't care for in general, but yet love in specific parts - Tim Robbins as Nuke LaLoushe comes to mind, as does Tom Arnold as Shwarzenegger's sidekick in True Lies.

Go figure.

robbo - yeah, I'm not a huge Goodman fan either but he's so funny (and good) in this movie. He plays a guy who "was in 'Nam" and literally cannot get over it. EVERY SINGLE SITUATION has its equivalent in "'Nam".

"I remember back in 'Nam ..." and all his friends roll their eyes behind his back.

He's very funny.
