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, the 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!
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…

I am a golden god!
I love rock and roll. I'd put another dime in the jukbox, baby, but I don't have a jukebox. Or any dimes. Jokes aside, this film is astoundingly awesome. It basically fulfills a fantasy I've had of writing an interview piece on my favorite rock singer, Billy Joel, only William Miller (the main character of this film) follows a slightly different type of rock group. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy myself in the least, however. Even though I didn't recognize some of the songs (I know,…
"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.
This is one of my favorite movies in the world.
I don't know, it's just brilliant.
I know this has been used before, but, I love Almost Famous so much it hurts. Along with Stand By Me that I just rewatched recently, Almost Famous is another one of those films that's really impacted me as an individual and another film I always have to watch once it becomes sunnier outside. The film is an absolute blast, but, there is so much more to it as well. Sometimes the film is devastating, but, there is always hope. Russel and Penny Lanes relationship in the film is beautiful. He doesn't know too much about who she is even, but, she just devoting time to him is just enough for him to really care about her. Russel never really…
a few weeks after I watched it I still think about this movie. Really uplifting, not exactly inspiring in the way that I want to become a 70s groupie, but inspiring in the way that I want to take advantage of my youth and live my life more actively
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
An ensemble piece that focuses on its heart more than its pocket.
Almost Famous is the universally loved film from Director Cameron Crowe and I must say, I understand the love. Though at some points predictable and at others a bit starched out, Almost Famous proves itself.
A clever script with well rounded characters and performances that define a generation. That is Almost Famous. It's a ride through the culture of misunderstood hoodlums, disrespected artists and love at its most confused.
The ending knelt towards the cliched side of the spectrum but with the story it was telling, there aren't many ways to find a way around it that would leave as much of a fulfilling taste in the mouths…
The Good: Enjoyable cast, cinematography, music and story. Very satisfying.
The Bad. No specific complaints but nothing that elevated it beyond "good" for me.
Would I watch again? Sure would!
Brilliant. But flawed. But also brilliant. And also flawed. But there is one thing that requires no debate:
Billy Crudup makes all the panties drop. That bastard is the definition of hot, and considering my lack of stereotypical homosexual traits, this is a mighty compliment indeed.
WHEN WILL KATE HUDSON GET TO SHINE LIKE THIS AGAIN??? I'M NOT GETTING ANY YOUNGER!!!
Cute and heartwarming are great qualities and all, but why the fuck is this movie so god damn long?
