Denise and I just finished watching the extended DVD “bootleg” edition of Almost Famous. It’s truly an awesome movie. I can’t quite put my finger on why, unless it would be the tone and feeling of the film, and the amazing performances of Patrick Fugit, Billy Cruddup, Jason Lee, Frances McDormand, and of course Kate Hudson. Cameron Crowe really outdid himself with this one, although Say Anything was one of my top twenty as well (I haven’t seen Vanilla Sky yet).

It’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in recent years–in fact, it has to be in my top ten. I highly recommend it, even if you can’t get the extended edition (hey, I got it for $12 on Amazon with $2 shipping from the Used and New–and it was brand new, factory sealed).
