"The only true currency in this bankrupt world... is what you share with someone else when you're uncool."

Writer/director Cameron Crowe won an Oscar for his extraordinary script for this outstanding semi-autobiographical tale. Crowe accomplished an astronomical achievement with his previous film, Jerry Maguire, so people had set their expectations pretty high because of his potenti... read more

Everything about this movie is absolutely superb, from the writing, directing, acting, etc. This is one of the few movies that I've ever seen that have made me really escape reality for a while, in complete enjoyment. I stayed away from this movie for so long just because of the hype, but once I finally watched it I was so in love. If you haven't seen this one yet, please do yourself a favor and w... read more

William Miller is a 15 year old kid, hired by Rolling Stone magazine to tour with, and write about Stillwater, an up and coming rock band. This wonderfully witty coming of age film follows William as he falls face first to confront life, love, and lingo.

A good movie

“I remember it very well the first time I saw this movie. Indeed, back then, I was living in England and I saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released. At the time, it was a huge critical classic and it is still considered as the best movie directed so far by Cameron Crowe. Well, to be honest, even though I thought it was a pretty cool feature, somehow, it never really blew me away though. It’s weird because, on paper, it sounded like a great story and since I was about the same age of the main character and since I loved the music of that particular time period, it should have been a sure winner. Basically, even though most of the characters were quite interesting thanks among other things to a very strong cast involved (Billy Crudup, Kate Hudson,Jason Lee, Frances McD” read more

The Almost Cast Part 2 (15 movies items)

"Sarah Polley as Penny Lane "I’m not Kate Hudson, I’m not like this beautiful movie star who walks in a room and every guy feels weak at the knees and stuff," Polley told Total Film Magazine. For starters, I would say that Sarah Polley was/is considerably more beautiful than Kate Hudson. Secondly, she is great in every role. "
