damn that shit is too hard for me not to screw up....I just open 2 tabs (or windows for u IE whores) one with the reply and the other with the actual posts, then apply the same simple copy and paste. Mines more of a:

quote, reply, new tap same place, quote, copy, switch tabs, paste, reply, swtich tabs, quote...etc.

...and i just realize my way is probably much more confusing.

You guys are pretty scarry but there's a movie I think you PTA heads would like to see that is coming out soon.  It's called Wonderland and it Stars Val Kilmer and it takes place in the early 80's in the same area Boogie Nights was done, but this is about a true event.  The director of this film is James Cox, and NYU alumni who graduated a year early(or dropped out) due to an offer to make a feature film based on the strength of his jr year color sync.  Things went slow for his professional directing years however, but recently he's teamed up with his college friend who collaborated and acted in Cox's Atomic Tobassco, to write and help act in this new feature about the different takes of what happened on the day of the Wonderland murders.  This film promises to be great and has something for everyone, a ture Don Quixote.

Yeah but it doesn't talk about the director, this guy is fucking the man.  It's like Roshomon vs. 80'sPorn.  James Cox also made one of the best student short films ever and this looks to be a lot like it.

Also PTA is not as good as James Cox.

Truffaut has made a lot more movies than PTA, there is a lot more to talk about.  PTA has made 4 movies, fun movies, but there's not much to talk about.

James Cox.

He's only done two films.

And another point for Mac. 'scope, I think you're in the negatives now. That's not so good.

Seriously though, I don't know why you're not posting about other directors on another thread right now. You say we're 'scarry' yet you're the one who seems to be getting his jollies out of staying in this thread and getting verbally raped for trying to trash PTA more as an artist. You've went from saying people like Truffaut are better than PTA to watching a film trailer and saying the director of it is obviously better than PTA. Seriously man, you're fucking around just to be an asshole. Fuck off already.

Oh awesome... since we all know the only reason people like Boogie Nights is because it was set in the 80s...  :roll:

I think one has to feel violated to be verbally raped.  I thought it was scary that people felt the need to keep coming back to this "thread" as you guys call it, and checking up to see what's the lates assault on PTA.  It's like you can't tell the difference from PTA and yourself so you get all pissy really easly.  Also, i never said if a director has made a couple movies they're not worth seeing.

I was on culturevulture.com today, reading some reviews. Generally, they have some good stuff. But I got bored and decided to read the Magnolia and PDL reviews. Their reviewers sounded like this cinemascope joker. I guess that where we see unbelievably raw and heartfelt emotion and search for goodness and truth in even the strangest of situations, other people only see loud soundtracks and Scorsese shot-rip-offs.  I don't know why there is this dichotomy...

We love PTA 'cause he writes stories that tow the line of realism but leave room for movie magic, he envelops them with a quick wit and boyish sense of humor, he casts interesting actors to play in them, and he happens to have a kinetic style that invokes similar legendary directors from the past (who were also dogged by critical response that they too were all style and no substance, at some time). He also happens to be a young man who still has room in his heart for naive romance and complete life-enveloping dedication to cinema. He, like Tarantino before him, made it cool to be a movie geek again. Before DVDs really took off.

Damn it, his Boogie Nights commentary taught me how to direct a film. I owe this man a HUGE inspirational debt of gratitude. If you don't like his films, like someone once wrote about Fellini, then I pity you. You are missing out.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.
