Saturday Night at the Movies 12/31/16!

Who cares what picture we see?

Robert Ridgely would have - and no one would dare dispute that. Because of that and the date - we're choosing this one for tonight...

I thought this drama about the adult film industry in the 1970's was marvelous. A huge ensemble cast brings to the screen a story somewhat inspired by John Holmes. Burt Reynolds got an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor playing porn director Jack Horner. Unfortunately, it was the same year Robert Forster was nominated for playing Max Cherry in Jackie Brown. I wanted them both to win - but that improbability did not come to pass as Robin Williams took the statue home for Good Will Hunting. (Yawn.)

But I digress.

 The movie is dynamic, and manages to be solid remaining an R Rated movie that's about X Rated movies. It also features a memorable New Year's Eve, which makes it just perfect for viewing tonight. I have it in the video vault on a fine DVD presentation, and we could be watching Dirk use his Diggler at any time - even this very evening, if you'd like to boogie over to my place.

Until 2017, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
