  1. I still have never ever ever seen this movie. What am I missing? Anything good? Not being a movie snob, mind you. I’ve just never gotten around to seeing it/renting it/catching it on Dish Network, etc.

    1. Frankly, there are better Coen Brothers movies to see. I mean, given half a chance, I’d totally sit you down and force you to watch a Coen Brothers marathon, which would include The Big Lebowski, but it’s not my favorite of theirs. I’m still not sure why it has the cult following it does.

      1. Mac, believe me, I’ve seen a fair chunk of their other work(s). I just never got to that one. And, to be fair, I didn’t really care for “No Country For Old Men” either. Meh. An air-gun. Does that make me a bad bi-ped?

    2. After hearing so much about it and seeing so much meme-related tribute work to it, I finally watched it a few months ago. I’d give it a 3 or 4 out of ten. In my opinion it’s highly overrated. I wouldn’t watch it again, but it makes so many other people happy that I’d hesitate to outright say it sucks. To each their own – I thought Time Cop and Waterworld were awesome movies.

      1. It’s hard to go into such a highly rated movie and like it–your expectations are too high. As for me, it’s one of my top three or so movies.
