Movie Talk: The Big Lebowski
Yesterday I’ve decided to re-watch one of the movies in my collection called The Big Lebowski. Okay I admit it, the first time I watch this movie I never really understand what it’s about, maybe because the ones I’ve downloaded have low-quality audio (even when all my volumes are set to 100% I still can’t hear it properly). So I’ve downloaded a new one (with better quality of course) and re-watch it. It feels like I just watched it for the first time ever! Now I get the pictures of that this movie was about, it was about a dude who called himself ‘The Dude’ (whose real name was Jeff Lebowski) got involved in a case of mistaken identity by some gangsters. Those gangsters are looking for another Mr. Lebowski, whose wife owed some debts to those gangsters. So one thing lead to another; actually it all started after those gangsters peed on The Dude’s rug and some ‘motivational talks’ from The Dude’s bowling partner, Walter, mixed with a fuckload of fuck you’s and gallons of White Russians (it’s a drink!), they’ve through all the abyss until the end.
The Dude, Donny, Walter.
This is remarkably one of the funniest movie I’ve ever seen, even thinking about the scenes makes me laugh until now. I love how cool The Dude was, when the gangsters first extorted him at his house, one of the gangster put his face into the toilet bowl and The Dude calmly took his shades which fell off into the bowl, put it on, and sat on the toilet bowl and he was like, “What the fuck, man?”. I also love a side-character whose name is Jesus Quintana, he’s one of their bowling-nemesis and he’s supposed to be a pervert in that movie. Just look at this man, Jesus!
But one thing I hate about this movie, I hate the ending. I hate how their friend Donny died. Nobody likes death as the ending 😦 And they also didn’t show how the Bowling League goes and also there are no scenes where The Dude bowled. I really like to see the sequel of this movie, but I doubt there will be one since there will be no scenes where Walter could say “Shut the fuck up Donny!” again. Nevertheless, I give this movie 4.8 over 5. I also would like to thank my dear friend Manu for recommending me this tremendous movie, I really hope I’ll find some movies as great as this again 🙂
