Guess That Movie: XXVII: Boogie Nights

February 18th, 2003

[Guess That Movie Round 27]Oooh – looks like two prizes may be awarded at this rate! Kymberlie managed to gain an extra 100 points by recognising Guess That Movie 26 as being taken from near the end of the Sam Neill movie The Dish [Order from] which has put her at the 480 points mark. The Dish is about the first landing on the Moon (the Apollo 11 and the Parkes radio telescope helped bring the images back to Earth. It’s quite a touching story – admittedly it could be compressed to a 15 minute story if you were just interested in the ‘bare facts’, but the ‘human interest’ side of it makes it worth watching in my book (after Event Horizon and the Jurassic Park series, I think Sam Neill’s beginning to get just a little bit typecast as a scientist…)

Anyway – now for the slightly delayed round 27. As you may have gathered, this one isn’t for youngsters – but then again it isn’t “R18” material either (R18 is the BBFC classification for ‘sexual movies’ here in the UK – ‘R18’ indicates that it can only be sold to those over 18 and that it is Restricted for sale in sex shops). It IS a popularish movie, and IT HAS been shown on television (I actually got a shock a few minutes ago when I saw a preview for it on one of the TV stations I get: and it wasn’t the Granada Men And Motors channel either!). In the UK it was rated ’18’ (only suitable for persons 18 years of age or older), but the MPAA in the States rated it ‘R’.

That’s the only clue you’re getting for now…Good luck and get guessing!

A: Boogie Nights [Order from] . Correctly guessed by “Blue Neon Head”.
