Quick Hits: March 6

  • March 6 is the Day of the Dude, the high holy day of Dudeism. For those of you unfamiliar with the holiday, it is the anniversary of the release of The Big Lebowski, which stars the incomparable Jeff Bridges as “The Dude”. So smoke a joint, drink a White Russian (but use American vodka), go bowling, or just stay home and watch the movie; however you celebrate, I wish you a very happy Day of the Dude.
  • Shining Vale premieres tonight on STARZ.
  • The new season of Survivor premieres Wednesday on CBS and Paramount Plus. Here are the castaways explaining the one thing they don’t want the other players to know.
  • Happy 75th birthday to Rob Reiner, creator of my favorite five-movie run of all time.
  • Kim Walker died on this day in 2001 of a brain tumor at the age of just thirty-two. Walker is best known for her portrayal of Heather Chandler in Heathers, where she delivers one of the greatest line readings in the history of cinema:
  • Also celebrating a birthday today is David Gilmour, legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist for Pink Floyd.
  • Verdi’s La traviata premiered at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice on this day in 1853.
  • The trailer for Bullet Train has been released, and it looks entertaining as hell.
