‘Dude’, ‘Grotesque’, And Other Words That Came From High-Culture History

Dude seems to have developed from a pejorative epithet for a man about as far as possible from Jeff Bridges’s character as one could get. Grotesque came from a hole in the ground in Rome. Picturesque originally referred to actual pictures — specifically, a particular style of painting. Silhouette started as Louis XV’s treasury secretary, became a snippy insult, and only then came to refer to framed side-views of a person, cut from black paper. – BBC

‘Avengers: Endgame’: Here’s How ‘Back to the Future’ Co-Creator Bob Gale Responded to Those References

It’s fair to say that Bob Gale may be one of the people on Earth who has most shaped the way human beings think about time travel. Sure, you could put people like Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking up there, but Gale is the co-writer/producer of the Back to the Future trilogy, and it’s a safe bet that more people have seen those movies than have cracked open a book by either of those two scientists. As you undoubtedly know by now, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame deals extensively with time t...

John Papadakis — ex-South Bay restaurateur, USC football star and Petros’ dad — has reinvented himself as a Tony Bennett-style crooner

By Deborah Paul, contributing writer For nearly four decades, John Papadakis greeted scores of customers at Papadakis Taverna — male or female — with a big kiss on the cheek. Along with his brother, Tommy, he turned the Greek eatery in San Pedro into a familiar, festive Southern California landmark. Papadakis eased himself out of the restaurant business in recent years and Pappy’s Seafood now occupies the brothers’ old space. But look out world: The Rancho Palos Verdes resident is reinventing hi...

Sam Elliot Hunts Jeff Bridges In ‘The Man Who Killed Bigfoot And Then The Lebowski’

“Uhh, The Dude minds! This will not stand!” Years and years after heroically — and surreptitiously — ending World War II by assassinating Adolf Hitler in a harrowing, lethal operation, American hero Calvin Barr (Sam Elliott), now languishing in the dust heap of American history and largely forgotten despite his past great deeds, is called upon by the US government to hunt down the fabled THE DUDE (Jeff Bridges), who might be the carrier of an unusually high amount of chill that could destr...

By HAVEN DALEY and OLGA R.

‘A Star Is Born’ Honest Trailer: Didn’t Jeff Bridges Already Do This in ‘Crazy Heart’?

A Star Is Born didn’t take home as many Oscars as pundits thought it would when it was all the rage last fall.

And now we have a nosebleed. Watch the A Star Is Born Honest Trailer...
