I thought he was an annoying young guy who would giggle a lot and use the term "wax my car" too often. I seriously did NOT like the guy when I first listened to the Boogie Nights commentary.

Nope. I've been a fan ever since...oh, let's see...I think it was 1982. Or maybe 84. Yep. Ever since then.

As a person, I could never really be sure cause I don't know him, but I think he seems like a cool guy. He was just so fucking nice when I met him so I couldn't really think any different. He didn't have to be nice, he could have been a bastard but he was nice to everbody, even the annoying film snobs trying to go home with him. Before meeting him, I wasn't really sure if he was nice but yea, I still thought he was cool just judging by the BN commentary and interviews and whatnot. I thought it was cool that he was passionate and it made me feel better that he didn't seem all that deep, that reminded me of myself. He stuttered and spoke in fragments, that surprised me. And then yea, he's funny too. As a filmmaker, he always has been and always will be a god to me, plain and simple.

Well, I'm more of an agnostic than an atheist.

BUT, to paraphrase Winston Zeddmore:

"When someone asks you if PTA is a god, you say YES!"  :)

I didn't say he's not good at what he does, but I don't like calling somebody a god, I just don't feel comfortable doing that. It's like he's an idol, and I don't have idols. But, I will say his name is a reccomendation for a movie.

He won't be a God until he wins an Oscar, because no good career is validated until then :wink:

When I watched Boogie Nights i had no clue about who PTA was and (based on what i saw) I tought he was an older director just know discover by this movie...then i saw his pic with a line of him about the new years resolution not peeing in the shower anymore...first i thought he was funny and got MORE impressed with his youth+ talent.

I know you are joking but I still expect (and hope) a BIG five for one of his movies... him, Julianne, Phill...
