Let's Go Bowling. The Big Lebowski Now Available on Blu-ray
08.16.11 by Chris
There's not too many Blu-ray releases we get excited over. Usually they have to include lightsabers or hobbits for us to pant. But when we heard The Big Lebowski was finally coming to Blu-ray, well, it made us thirsty for some "Caucasians."
The movie came and went in theaters but it was on home video (first VHS, then DVD, and now Blu-ray) where the Coen Bros. dark comedy became endowed with cult status.
Now, the only thing better than seeing a movie you've seen hundreds of times, is seeing it in HD and on the newly released Blu-ray, fans get a digital copy along with some pretty cool bonus features, including a making-of documentary, a tracking of all the f-bombs, "dudes," and Lebowski-isms during the movie.
And to celebrate the Blu-ray release, the cast, including Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianna Moore, Steve Buscemi, and John Turturro, is reuniting at the Lebowski Fest New York.
For those not lucky enough to be in the Big Apple for the legendary gathering, EW.com and Livestream.com are streaming the entire thing, starting at 6:30 p.m. ET. But we'll be there as well. Come back here tomorrow and watch Hollywood Dailies for our coverage of the festivities.
