I ran across some info that I’m sure a few of my readers will be interested in. One of the greatest movies ever made, the Coen Brothers’ 1998 cult classic “The Big Lebowski”, is being re-released on DVD on October 18th (holy crap, that’s my birthday!) in a special Collector’s Edition (see details here). Unfortunately, the new release does not really offer much other than a remastered version of the film, a ‘Making Of’ piece and some photography from actor Jeff Bridges, aka ‘The Dude’.
But in addition to this new release, there is also another, even more special version coming out….the aptly named ‘Achiever’s Edition Gift Set’. This set features the above edition of the film, along with 8 exclusive photo cards, 4 collectible coasters which include photos and quotes from the film (sure to be a hit at any party), and the crown jewel….The Big Lebowski Bowling Shammy Towel! I know, it makes for a rather expensive towel, but it’s a pretty novel idea. And the packaging, as seen above, would look nice on display in any living room.
