Recently I was contemplating making a list of my favorite scenes in film, but I decided that instead of just…
Experience it. Enjoy it. Just don't fall for it.
Almost Famous is an autobiographical inspired film about a 15-year-old who is hired by Rolling Stone magazine to follow and interview a rock band during their tour. A film about growing up, first love, disappointment, and the life of a rock star.
Reporter: Mr.Blake what do you love about cinema?
Me: To begin with it....everything else.
I AM A GOLDEN GOD!
This song is never been sung in this film, but can be sing always:
Like a bird on a wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
Bird on the wire by Leonard Cohen
If I could be more free as much am I, I'll be like a bird on the wire, to sing my own song...Like a bird on the wire...To sing with my friends on the wire...Only to you hear our midnight choir.
Maybe is the only thing I can refer about music and rock 'n' roll. Like a bird…
"You are home."
The greatest films don't even exist in any form of reality. The images conjured and the feelings emitted cause a magical occurrence, releasing dreams into their purest destinations and furthering the quest for collective empathy. Very few films, even among my favorites, can cause such a cathartic and almost "out-of-body" feeling within me, but Almost Famous never fails to make me see humanity and its massive intricacies so clearly. A beautiful, beautiful film.
Its all happening!
I finally watched Almost Famous after a loooooooong time of putting it off.
Sigh.... There's just too many movies and not enough time... But I saw it. And more importantly, I loved it; for obvious reasons. But I also loved this film for being so damn awesome despite having 3 things I passionately hate:
1. Kate Hudson
2. Zooey Deschanel
3. Kate Hudson and Zooey Deschanel being in the same movie.
Luckily Zooey had a small and surprisingly likable part and she didn't have share the screen with Kate "yourwordsmakemypenisshrivel" Hudson. In fact, I think the films only crime is trying to convince us that anyone could ever fall in love with her... But enough about that!…
Why did I wait so long to watch!? Almost Famous might be the best film about music that I've seen. It's a coming of age story that is so different from the rest. I connected with so many characters in this movie, and that rarely happens. Typically, I'll connect with maybe one or two; but that's not the case here. And I think that was mainly due to the outstanding acting from the entire cast. The music! Oh the music was absolutely fantastic!
I tried to think of something negative to say about this movie, even if it was the smallest thing. And I literally can't think of anything. This movie was amazing. The Tiny Dancer scene was just way too good, dang that was awesome. Also, the fact that Russell is Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen is just epic.
Don't forget: DON'T DO DRUGS!
I love it. I adore it. I could eat it everyday if it was healthy enough. Everyone has a favorite food, one that comforts and makes your taste buds sing, culminating in a choir radiating from your slowly-satisfied stomach. Anytime, anywhere, if there's pizza offered, I wanna try it. Of course, if It's a steak restaurant or something, I'll go for the steak, but that's self-explanatory. Basically, comfort food is synonymous with comfort cinema, as it brings the same wondrous pleasures as a bite into a massive slice of deep-dish. The world of film is overflowing with variety, but sometimes, a three hour Fellini isn't what you want to watch on a Saturday night. However, you don't want to…
Finally get to check this off my watchlist - one of my most personally anticipated films I had not yet seen. A rock and roll epic on the fictitious band Stillwater and the fifteen-year-old reporter who follows them on tour to write a cover story for Rolling Stone Magazine. It features genuine humour and genuine drama; it features drugs and (inexplicit) sex, but almost has a family film feel to it. Patrick Fugit is not a great actor, not even a moderately good one, but his performance, notwithstanding the hiccups, is very loveable. Kate Hudson’s as well for she not merely graces the screen whenever she’s on, looking better than she’s ever done, but steals it as well with her…
Almost Famous. I totally relate to that teen-age boy's rock and roll fantasy. And then mom's on the screen and suddenly I'm her. Great film!
Strange decision to assemble a pretty useful cast with good material and then deliver a portrayal of the music scene in the 70's that Disney couldn't have done any better.There are some nice performances with Frances McDormand the stand out as usual.
This movie is the goddamn love of my life. Thanks for the memories, Cam.
The death of a former favorite is always a bit painful... I still think the strongest aspect of this is Crowe's unapologetically sentimental tone, but dammit, it's plagued by this desperate rockist need to mythologize itself, even when it's having Philip Seymour Hoffman deliver that "uncool" speech over the phone, near the ending.
Also I barely remember what's part of the theatrical cut and what isn't - not that it matters, the movie I used to love was the longer cut, which is the one I rewatched. So much of the humor fell flat this time around and so many of the musical choices seemed desperately on-the-nose that I couldn't really connect with its ultimately silly characters (the bandmembers are…
Almost Famous is almost great.
Crowe's active camera and subdued lighting is incredible, whilst the sound design (specifically the editing) is more experimental than many other films I've seen - it's just a shame that the film lacks any form of thematic direction to support the routinely entertaining narrative and always fantastic form.
the plane scene is amazing
Drick något gott, bli berusad och se denna film - en kombo utan dess like. Hur många gånger jag har förat till denna film? Vet ej, tappat räkningen.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
