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!…
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…
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!
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…
ok psh and frances mcdormand were both ace in this!! i loved their characters so much!! and shout out to billy crudup for serving up some good lüks 💯
children… please do not do the drugs
"Almost Famous" is rich in its themes as it conveys a deep, meaningful message about love through the passion of music. Well developed characters, intriguing story, fantastic performances. "Almost Famous" is a classic.
Everything I look for in a movie. Great music, great performances, is funny, has heart and has characters I can easily latch onto.
A film with a beautiful soul. My heart just aches each time I see this. I cry at Tiny Dancer; I dance to the soundtrack; I feel for each character.
Fugit's performance is remarkable when you consider it was his first feature film. And Hudson and McDormand are great. But over time I find myself appreciating Crudup and Lee more. They are lithe and energised, yet also vulnerable and human.
The script is so pure too. Effortless from Crowe. A shame he's been trying too hard ever since. But that doesn't take away his achievement here. The redemptive moment at the end just ties things up perfectly.
"There's hope for you yet Russell".
Just as humpty dumpty as I remembered. Plenty of good, still.
