From the Academy Award- winning Coen brothers (Fargo, True Grit), The Big Lebowski is a hilariously quirky comedy about bowling, a severed toe, White Russians and a guy named...The Dude. Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski doesn't want any drama in his life...heck, he can't even be bothered with a job. But, he must embark on a quest with his bowling buddies after his rug is destroyed in a twisted case of mistaken identity.

Where do you start in reviewing this masterpiece of cinema?

Everything the Coen's set out to achieve came back with an ace. When this only existed on paper I bet no one but the Coen brothers could have imagined how amazing it would turn out on screen.

The script is a marvel and the cast are all perfect, especially the three leads. I for one cannot decide which scene is better, they are all brilliant. If you do not understand what is so great about this movie then I fear you do not have the greatest of tastes. There is so much quality on display from all concerned.

This is one of the most quotable movies of all time. Its practically seen as a religion by its growing legion of fans. It doesn't matter if you view it from the start and watch for the entirety or just come in half way through and see just half an hour it is always entertaining.

It never seems to get dull or diminish with time, in fact it seems to get better and better with each viewing until you realise it's now easily ranked in your own top 10 movies. Which is incredible when you consider that it doesn't really follow a conventional or cohesive story line. In fact someone asked me recently what it's about and I was stumped at what to say.

This is as near to perfection as movies can get. I never tire of spending the evening with Donny, Walter and the Dude!

The transfer..................

Universal have granted this with a VC-1 encoded, 1.85:1 framed, 1080p transfer onto a 50GB Blu-ray disc of decent quality.

A marked improvement from DVD which is most certainly worth the upgrade.

Detail is good but not amazing, the image does appear softer than I would have liked although it is much sharper than DVD. The best moments are in the brightly lit bowling alley which thankfully is where most of this is set. Colour saturation is pretty good with much improved vibrancy from previous releases.

Edge enhancement has been utilised and I did detect some artifacting issues such as occasional haloing and aliasing. There were also detectable moments of crush in the night time scenes.

Grain is non existent so it would appear as though some levels of the dreaded DNR brush have been used which could go someway to explaining the softer image.

Most "Lebowski" fans will be delighted with this image, all in all it's pretty good. Could it of been better? Yes, but this is the best it's ever looked up to now.

Film 5/5 Transfer 3.5/5
