    I saw this yesterday before I went to sleep, and though the film is slightly overlong (nearly three hours in length) - I feel that it does, to a degree, warrant this runtime. This is a very funny movie, and in the second half a very dramatic one too. Everyone is well-cast, with a lot of praise for Julianne Moore is a particularly moving and depressing role as Amber Waves.

    Wahlberg also impresses in probably one of his…

    Holy shit.

    Honestly, you can't even write a review for this film. You can't. And you want to know why? Because you'll end up spoiling the fucking movie and everyone will be pissed off at you. Boogie Nights is that good. Hell it's brilliant.

    I watched this on an unopened VHS my parents had that still had the $25 price tag from Target on it. Whoops, there goes their investment. Yeah, that's right. I opened the unopened and I don't…

    Mark Wahlberg was surprisingly good in this, but I just read that Leonardo DiCaprio was at one point cast as Dirk and I can't help but wonder what he would have done with it. Anyway, basically all I thought about during this film was the state of Rollergirl's feet.

    Paul Thomas Anderson crafted a spectacular film about pornography industry in Boogie Nights that makes his groundbreaking era in modern cinema. This is a prototype of all his following works—strong in themes and narratives with hypnotizing visuals.

    I really can't stand Mark Wahlberg, but this film is an exception. I thought it was really compelling. usually with movie 2.5 hours or more, I get impatient & distracted, but that wasn't the case here. Paul Thomas Anderson manages to introduce you to a bunch of characters and make you feel for all of them. all of the continuously shot scenes were fantastic.

    hard to really describe this movie, but it's pretty damn good. the cast was great and everyone played an amazing role. PTA's direction was phenomenal and the editing was on point. the score & soundtrack were perfect at every point in the film, most notably the scene where Jack is beating the guy up on the sidewalk being juxtaposed with Dirk getting beat up. another great film from the one and only Paul Thomas Anderson.

    I really don't understand why people like this movie so much. It is so cynically derivative and self-satisfied. Do people just not know their Altman and Scorsese. There's not an original idea in this entire movie. So much aping. This is the planet of the apes.

    Can we talk about what it's saying about human sexuality? It expresses nothing but disgust and cynicism for an important aspect of the human experience. It is so damning of it's subjects in a…

    This is good at the start but great by the end. Boogie Nights is highly regarded by many but I struggle to fully grasp what makes it great. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this film, it just doesn't crack the top ten for me. I think it simply boils down to the fact that this isn't my kind of movie. That being said, Boogie Nights still managed to surprise me by the end. First and foremost, the cinematography…

    Jesus fucking christ, I knew I was missing something before I had seen this film, but holy fucking shit, this has everything I ever wanted in a movie.Everything about it I just fucking loved, the music, the cinematography, the dialogue. Paul Thomas fucking Anderson.
    Hold on is that an after credits scene? No its just the sound of Mark Wahlberg having an orgasm, and during the whole fucking movie I was too. This is my favorite PTA film... no, this…
