The Hurt Locker on Film4 at 9. Boogie Nights on ITV4 at 11.
Which do I watch and why?
one after another.
Boogie Nights is about 3 hrs long tho, no? so prepare for a late(ish) night
so no can do.
I thought Hurt Locker was a massive disappointment when I saw it
Boogie Nights is just brilliant
It's better, more emotionally involving and features an amazing ensemble cast. And you get to see wang, boobs and bush.
could do with a 45 minute trim, I reckon
because the scene where john c. reilly and mark wahlberg are writing 'feel my heat' is the single greatest thing ever.
and I wouldn't have noticed
but I'd say Boogie Nights, great ensemble cast (even Heather Graham is good) and a great director.
only about 2 and a quarter hours isn't it? 2 and a half maybe, but I watched it in one without getting restless, and it's very rare that happens.
It's also brilliant - the scene where he records a record is brilliant, and it's surprising how emotionally involving it is when their lives go on a bit of a down trajectory. Plus John C Reilly is in it
closer to 3hrs with all the adverts on ITV
There you go then
but CAN EVERYONE TRY AND REFRAIN FROM POSTING ANY KINDS OF SPOILERS. Not sure if there are spoilers in this thread but there are things that sound a bit borderline.
I seem to remember watching Me Myself and Irene late one night and all the good stuff was taken out; Jim Carreys sons were barely in it.
Plus the ads will probably take Boogie Nights to 3+ hours
I remember it used to say in the radiotimes if films were edited for tv.
and it might have been ITV2 or 3 but it was definitely censored. Basically any scenes where the kids say motherfucker was gone, which is most of their scenes.
They seem to be pretty great for films tbf
is just incredible. And the whole film is bloody excellent. But you really have to immerse yourself in it. no breaking or half arsed concentration. Its a t'riffic film though.
So watch that.
I like Boogie Nights
nicely shot and acted. Didn't really connect with it though. Didn't find it all that exciting. Who knew Mark Wahlberg could act?
I cannot understand how that film garnered critical acclaim, the storyline is just nonsensical.
