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

"25.3. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Kaavamainen ja lopulta laiskakin kaikki oppivat elämään kunnollisina -tarina (ts. ärsyttävä Hollywood-kiiltokuva), mutta niin hyvällä tavalla lämmintä nostalgisointia, riittävän uskottavaa hahmodynamiikkaa pysyäkseen kiinnostavana sekä erinomaista musiikkia hyvin viihdyttävässä kokonaisuudessa, että siitä on aivan mahdoton olla pitämättä."

Kyle Ellis posted a review 2 years, 7 months ago

“"Almost Famous" was almost a really good movie, but the whole thing was a little too fluffy to be fully believable. It seems that the band members - and the tag-alongs - would have been strung out on drugs. But other than that, it was a pretty good flick. It's fairly well known that director Cameron Crowe loosely based the story on his experiences covering a band's tour for Rolling Stone magazine. One thing that I couldn't quite understand is why, when the movie came out, a lot of people told me that the boy reminded them of me. Okay, so he had a different take on everything; that seems like a bit of a stretch. But either way, "Almost Famous" is worth seeing, with fine performances from Kate Hudson, Frances McDormand, Billy Crudup, Jason Lee, and newcomer Patrick Fugit.” read more

Well, to be honest, even though I thought it was a pretty cool feature, somehow, it never really blew me away though.
