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…
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!
"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.
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…
"The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you're uncool."
Considering I've just finished watching this film, the sensible thing to do would probably be to wait until I've gathered my thoughts and then write an in-depth review covering everything in detail.
But I'd just forget to do that.
As with most things, there really isn't anything else I can add that hasn't already been said about this film, other than the fact that it's probably a new favourite of mine. It's just, well, every single thing about it. The script (that "uncool" conversation...). The soundtrack (the soundtrack...). The cast (PSH...). Everything combining to create the band movie.
Yeah, once again, I'm pretty much lost for words right now. Sorry.
I honestly just feel like Almost Famous is really boring. The stakes feel really low, so it's difficult to feel invested in the plot and characters. Also, all the female characters (and a lot of the male ones, for that matter) are super flimsy, which, as a Living Female Human Being Who Interacts With Other Humans, I find to be a real bummer.
Like the rock music it celebrates, this keeps getting better every time I see it.
There's a key moment in the film where the eager, young 15 year old critic, William, is told by dreamy "band-aid", Penny Lane to "put down his pen" while observing the band he's supposed to be covering for Rolling Stone. It's William's first big assignment, his big break and from Penny he's just received his most important lesson.
William is challenged with both making the precarious journey into adulthood while simultaneously learning what it means to be a critic. And what does it mean to be a critic? It means to love the art. In that key scene I described above, William is too concerned with trying to write before he's observed and learned. That's what critics are in it…
Another one of my favorites.

File this movie under films that I really, really should have watched by now, because holy hell, I loved Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous, which is my first film that I've seen from the director but based on this movie it won't be the last, because I loved it. Arguably one of the (if not the) best films about music, Almost Famous knocks it out of the park with an incredible 122mins that's essential viewing for any fans of music, rock in particular (fun fact - rock is my favourite genre), featuring a killer…
man i wouldve loved this movie in 7th grade
I can remember hearing the title of this film several years back and having no idea what it was about or that I would be even remotely interested in the film and subject matter. However, seasons come and go and so do passions. I'm referring to none other than rise of music in my life as an inexperienced adolescent and the romantic world it painted across the canvas of my thoughts. After rediscovering this film and actually learning what It was about instead of judging a poster that didn't immediately catch my attention, I knew I had to watch this film before anything else. After watching a commentary on the "Bus Sing Along" scene (Okay, It was a YouTube…
"It's all happening!"
how had i not seen this before??? I wanna be a band aid
Extremely funny writing and even better character writing. Penny Lane, brilliant portrayed by Kate Hudson, is a character that will always stick with me. Not because shes obviously beautiful, but because of the tremendous depth and how Hudson continuously broke our heart by showing her hidden one. Also, McDormand plays the best mom in the history of cinema. Bold statement but I can't think of one better. Can't wait to watch Say Anything and ignore Aloha.
