    I'll never be involved in the making of a film this good. That's the reason it made me feel inadequate, I swear.

    Boogie Nights is likely the most insane movie i have in my entire life, and i just 100 percent embraced it. I just love about everything about Boogie Nights. I love the characters, it is very bold in terms of messages and meanings, the story is subtle, dramatic, heartfelt, and entertaining through out it's running time, and everything just seems to fit in it. This film got Director Paul Thomas Anderson on the map, as well as Mark Whalberg, and…

    The tale of a rags to riches to junky teen stepping into the porn industry of the late 70's. Paul Thomas Anderson crafts a beautifully sad story of the loss of innocence induced by fame and fortune. In true Anderson form, he weaves this tale with the strands of many potent characters and events. Whether it's crushing sadness, intoxicating adrenaline, or dark retrospect, emotion is present in every scene of this picture, and becomes the primary driving force behind this wreckingball.

    While for me, it does not quite reach that overall five-star rating, Boogie Nights is nonetheless a splendid film that entertains all the way through its two and a half hour run-time, with a combination of incredible acting, quick and intelligent dialogue, eye-catching visuals, and fitting music.

    "I wanna fuck, it's my big dick, so everybody get ready fuckin' now"

    I've wanted to watch Boogie Nights for a long time, but now that I've seen it I'm kind of disappointed. I thought most of the cast did a pretty good job, and marky mark will stay in my heart forever. The script and dialogue were lacking pretty much throughout the film in my opinion which had me emotionally detached from many of the subplots (ie: Amber's troubles…

    Not bad, but clearly not as good as PTA rabid fanbase will tell you. Some good moments, including the Alfred Molina scene.

    That missing half star is only for the ending third which spirals into a quintessentially PT Anderson-esque entropy. It's not as awful as some critics (lovestruck after the first two thirds) put it, and it's still energetic as all getup, but after some of the most exuberant AND controlled filmmaking ever, it is a little bit of a letdown. It's a little indulgent. But that's okay.

    It's interesting to see this after The Master. Anderson has clearly grown as an…

    A lot of great scenes especially at the drug dealers house that was awesome, and the donut shop, all in all really funny. However, it felt long some things could have been shorter.

    I feel as though my first viewing of this was hampered by the fact that I watched it with my mother, so I thought it best that I give it another go as part of my PTA marathon. And I'm so glad I did. It really is brilliant.

    There's so much to say about it but I have no idea where to begin, a film so rich with nuances doesn't seem like one that can be analysed. Just know that it is what cinema was meant for.
