Definatly the scene in boogie nights where they sell the fake coke. The whole scene is unbeleivable. The chinese guy doing the fireworks, the tracks in the background, the close-up of Dirk's face, Todd going nuts: "We want what's in the master bedroom, under the bed, in a floor safe . . . You understand?"

Perhaps one of the best scenes in cinema history!

you liked that jibberish ramble of a monologue?


You didn't like that monologue?!?

I take it you saw the deleted coke scene where Elswit (I think?) positioned a camera underneath a glass coffee table and just shot them improvising, snorting, improvising, snorting.....J.C. Reilly, Wahlberg and the other dude (the male stripper) are so funny to watch

I love that fucking scene! It could have been the funniest scene had they kept it in there and edited it a little.

"Check the spy hole Todd!"

I also love the one where Reed and Dirk are trying to think of all the different routes Todd could've taken to get the coke and be late...that's funny as hell.

Yeah, that scene was great, too. Another great improvising, deleted scene is the one with Maurice and Dirk doing the bar scene for Brock Landers. Dirk keeps fucking it up and called Maurice by his real name and stuff. Hilerious scene

The Sydney Barringer scene, I love. It's interesting and well done, but I can never get over the badly edited part when Sydney gets shot.



are you talking about the cut to a close-up of sydney's stomach blowing up, or how do you mean "badly edited?"


Yeah, I'm talking about the cut to the close-up of Sydney's stomach blowing up. As much as I love this movie, that has always bothered me, and I can't help it. As short as that shot is, it's still too long; I suppose it's hard to explain, but I wish that shot had been cut much shorter, like less than a second shorter.

Yes, it's like, right after the narrator says he was killed instantly, you see him move his arm to protect his face from the net.  Fortunately, 2 seconds later I have totally forgotten this and am back in the movie.  

Favorite scene:  
Magnolia....Stanley tells his father to be nicer, twice.  :cry:
Tinapop  

I used to be smart.... now I'm just stupid.

Julianne Moore at the Drugstore, what a stress situation and so well managed, just gorgeous! And I'm quite convinced that this scene catapulted her to the skies of superstars. She should teach.

interesting fact about the rahad jackson scene i picked up. todd parker says "in the bedroom. under the bed..." that line is also said, the same way, in truffaut's 400 blows. this could be nothing, but i know pta is into the french new wave stuff, so it's a possibilty that that's where he got the line
Some people say I was an embarassment to the nation. Well, I say, that depends on what your definition of "was" is, jerk.

You can't just pick ONE scene. PTA is too much for one scene. But these are my top choices

Boogie Nights: I don't know why but my jaw completely dropped on the closeups before the scene where eddie is eating breakfast cuz your totally inside that pan with the eggs and the bacon and everthing! It was most bodacious! My friend Jonny just goes "What've I been telling you? PTA knows his stuff!"  And also I loved the parallel scene when Dirk's inside that one dude's truck and Jack and Rollergirl are inside the limo. Think about this, Jack and Dirk were the biggest people in the bussiness. But once they parted ways they realized how worthless they actually were by themselves.  Dirk has to resort back to cleaning out his pee for $10. And remember how the guy said all he had was a ten? That was definitely not a coincidence. Jack realizes his worthlessness when that idiot, that gets in the limo to do rollergirl, tells him that his movies suck now. So Jack is made humbled but gets pissed off and totally goes guano ape on him (and Rollergirl totally kick his face with her skates). And Dirk is made humble but he gets his butt served to him on a silver platter.

Magnolia I read the script to Magnolia (and i would recommend that to anyone: read the script before you watch the movie) and I was completely blown away at the part when all the charecters sing the words to Wise Up (a perfect song for the moment) by Aimee Mann. But PTA totally ripped my arm off and beat my head with it when Earl and LInda were both unconsious at the same time (but in different places and for different reasons) but both kept singing the words. I fell over and fell into back snapping convulsions! it was awesome! and i also loved the ghetto zoom inside earl's lungs and you could see the cancer cells floating around, I loved it! anyway, those are my favorite scenes.
