    There's just something engaging about watching a character's journey go from the rise to the fall and watching them grow eventually by films end and that's certainly the case here in Paul Thomas Anderson's fantastic film Boogie Nights. The film is set during the late 70's, where the adult film industry is shot on film and plays in theatres, where one director named Jack Horner wants to make films that keep the audiences engaged throughout the films entirety long after…

    Over time, I've come to realize that of all of Paul Thomas Anderson's films, I find this one the least compelling. Not sure why that is.

    I can count the amount of movies I've seen twice within a single year on my hands. Boogie Nights is one of them.

    Proves Paul Thomas Anderson is capable of creating a true epic of filmmaking, he just can't do it every time he goes up to bat.

    The Tom Jane, Mark Wahlberg, John C. Reilly drug deal scene is one of the greatest examples of tension ever put to film.

    What a movie! I am placing this one as a diary entry because I had to cut it short slightly after the transition into 80's pretty much leaving it at the new years eve party. If everyone who's seen this doesn't remember it - that'd be a nudge to revisit this classic that placed Paul Thomas Anderson on the map.

    I should turn this reexamining of Paul Thomas Anderson movies into a marathon or something. How can there be a director so universally beloved and so completely opposed to my sensibilities? Still, at least we have a formally interesting film if not an actually interesting one. What a strange relationship I have with this guy.

    Been awhile since I watched this bell to bell, but Jesus, what a perfect movie. It's got a lot more heart than I remember. The relationship between Jack and Dirk stood out more this go round, too, probably because I had Hard Eight on the brain. Everyone loves PT as a director, but there's an odd poetry to his dialogue that makes him an underrated screenwriter. So many great bits.

    What a great movie. I am not initially familiar with John Thomas Anderson's work, but I can easily say that Boogie Nights stands as one of his all-time best. Loosely based on the exploits of porn star John Holmes, it is a triumph in depicting the golden age of porn and it's demise.

    The first half of Boogie Nights depicts a care-free late 1970s where disco is at it's peak. Taking place in San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles,…

    I love you
    You love me
    Going down the sugar tree
    We'll go down the sugar tree
    And see lots of bees playing, playing
    But the bees won't sting
    Because you love me

    Boogie Nights is super fun to watch and i generally enjoyed myself the whole time. It's offers some great characters and excellent acting. The story about the pornography industry feels like a breathe of fresh air as it's something we are definitely not use to seeing. I love the parallels that were made between Adult filming and non adult cinema. My big problem with Boogie Nights is that it feels like it doesn't know what to focus on. There are…
