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.
"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.
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!
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…
For all the talk about how desperately uncool this kid is, this movie still seems like the ultimate humblebrag.
It is a work of art, this film. It could have easily dragged on as a sluggish affair about the tragic lives of rock stars and the same old things, but it unfolds so beautifully and the screenplay is so unique, that it is impossible to get bored. It's not a road movie with lots of nice music. It is much more than that. Every single character is so distinct and versatile. Over the course of the film, we get to see their interactions with each other which mostly result in hilarious outcomes, such as the conversations with William's mother, who is interesting enough to be a case study in a psychology journal, the advice given to William by critic…
I have so much to say about this film but very little words to express how much I enjoy watching this movie from beginning through end. Kate Hudson is such a magical creature and her acting skills are great here. The chemistry between the band and how real it felt made it all better. Also, the soundtrack deserves a separate review by itself. I find myself rewatching this movie from time to time because it's so enjoyable.
It's all happening.
Has the sweetness for a good rock n roll movie but lacks the drive for a great movie.
A nice film. A really nice film. Extremely well shot. Great characters and a good story with underlying issues. The soundtrack also really compliments the shots, style and feel of the whole movie. Whilst not a fantastic movie this is a film that will always be there in the back of your mind as the "Oh I have seen this before" and "Oh yeah it is a good film."
Just now got around to seeing this film and I was blown away. Phenomenal film about Rock'n'Roll life on the road.
The moral of the story is .. fuck men go fly to morocco by yourself and live life
This 2000 American comedy-drama R rated film was written and directed by Cameron Crowe, and starring Billy Crudup, Kate Hudson and Patrick Fugit. It tells the fictional story of a teenage journalist writing for Rolling Stone magazine in the early 1970s while covering the fictitious rock band Stillwater, and his efforts to get his first cover story published. The film is semi-autobiographical, as Crowe himself was a teenage writer for Rolling Stone.
The film is based on Crowe's experiences touring with rock bands Poco, The Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Crowe has discussed how during this period he lost his virginity, fell in love, and met his heroes.
Although a box office bomb, the film…
Yeah it's cute. I liked it. Kate Hudson does not look 16.
