This movie was so great. I don't even care that the plot was incoherent. Those scenes with Martin Short were particularly hilarious in my opinion. And Josh Brolin was magnificent, especially in that weed chomping scene. (Joaquin Phoenix was of course great too. The main female actress also).

PT Anderson is genius. My favorite director.

It was out of this world, lol. I'm reading Gravity's Rainbow now, trying to keep up the fix.

The Master owned too. What are PT's other movies like?

I'm deeply fond of everything I've seen by him , which is all his films except for Hard Eight. His films are really unique. His only two comedies are Inherent Vice and Punch Drunk Love. The latter is a romantic comedy staring Adam Sandler, which sounds just AWFUL, I know. But trust me, it's not. It'd be better to say it's a dark, artsy romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler in non-formulaic role with more depth than I would have ever imagined he could have. After seeing it, I'm honestly never going to decline from watching a movie based just on the actor. It was super funny too, though in a different way to Inherent Vice.

Boogie Nights is probably his only other "fun" movie (besides maybe Hard Eight which I haven't seen yet), but it has a lot of depth too. It's a movie about the porn industry, which again, doesn't sound too appealing, but it was a phenomenal movie. The characters had so much depth and the acting was all-around stellar. The subject seems superficial but you'll end up falling in love with all the characters.

Magnolia in contrast is a thoroughly serious film, and it doesn't have any striking plot. It's just a general film about life I'd say.

There Will be Blood is simply a masterpiece. It's his darkest film and fairly depressing. Both the unique plot and the engrossing characters drive this film, but everything about it, from the cinematography to the music score is perfectly crafted. It's a shocking movie, and will leave you pondering.

In order of how I'd rate them:

1. There Will be Blood
2. Boogie Nights
3. Magnolia
4. Inherent Vice
5. The Master
6. Punch Drunk Love

Unsure whether Magnolia or Inherent Vice is better. I definitely enjoyed Inherent Vice more, but I think Magnolia may be the better film.

Yes, it was certainly well worth it for me. There was no way I was going to not watch it, seeing as it was my first opportunity to see my favorite directer in theater. It was even better than I thought it would be. It is indeed bizarre, and attempting to fully understand the plot is futile, so don't worry about not knowing what's going on. If you like his other films, such as Boogie Nights, than you'd probably like it, but even PTA fans are divided on this one, so it's hard to say. If you don't watch many strange or bizarre films, than you may not like it; you may even hate it. You should definitely see it one way or another, but it's up to you whether you want to pay for movie tickets or not.

The ridiculous notes he takes are hilarious too. As if to say "It's okay that you haven't a clue what's going on; neither does this dude". And the hilarious commentary. It was such a good movie.

I'm deeply fond of everything I've seen by him , which is all his films except for Hard Eight. His films are really unique. His only two comedies are Inherent Vice and Punch Drunk Love. The latter is a romantic comedy staring Adam Sandler, which sounds just AWFUL, I know. But trust me, it's not. It'd be better to say it's a dark, artsy romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler in non-formulaic role with more depth than I would have ever imagined he could have. After seeing it, I'm honestly never going to decline from watching a movie based just on the actor. It was super funny too, though in a different way to Inherent Vice.

Boogie Nights is probably his only other "fun" movie (besides maybe Hard Eight which I haven't seen yet), but it has a lot of depth too. It's a movie about the porn industry, which again, doesn't sound too appealing, but it was a phenomenal movie. The characters had so much depth and the acting was all-around stellar. The subject seems superficial but you'll end up falling in love with all the characters.

Magnolia in contrast is a thoroughly serious film, and it doesn't have any striking plot. It's just a general film about life I'd say.

There Will be Blood is simply a masterpiece. It's his darkest film and fairly depressing. Both the unique plot and the engrossing characters drive this film, but everything about it, from the cinematography to the music score is perfectly crafted. It's a shocking movie, and will leave you pondering.

In order of how I'd rate them:

1. There Will be Blood
2. Boogie Nights
3. Magnolia
4. Inherent Vice
5. The Master
6. Punch Drunk Love

Unsure whether Magnolia or Inherent Vice is better. I definitely enjoyed Inherent Vice more, but I think Magnolia may be the better film.

Whoa. Cheers mate. I thought The Master was f*cking hilarious though, lol.

That scene where he was imagining everyone naked was pretty hilarious.

The whole thing was hilarious. Where he put his hand through the wall too, lol. I dunno, maybe he reminded me of me.

Lol, I don't think many would describe the movie as hilarious. The majority were probably more inclined to yawn than to laugh.

Don't you hate it when you make a thread about something you love and no one else cares?

I feel bad for XLAV and his thread about Predestination but that movie sucked so hard lol




I guess I'll be watching TWBB next then.

Let me know what you think of it.

I will.

The ridiculous notes he takes are hilarious too. As if to say "It's okay that you haven't a clue what's going on; neither does this dude". And the hilarious commentary. It was such a good movie.

That one long shot with the lead actress is pretty memorable.
