"Almost Famous" (2000)

Almost Famous (2000) won Best Picture at the Golden Globes, while the Academy chose to ignore it. I suppose it is partly the fact that the Academy has no respect for comedy, but this film is so much more than a comedy, it is a crime that it was not nominated. It is orders of magnitude better than the probably winner, Gladiator, and, as much as I liked Erin Brockovich, this is a better film. Everything Scoopy said in his detailed review, I agree with. I would like to add that Kate Hudson had incredible charisma in this role. Young Patrick Fugit gave an incredible performance, although he must have really felt some of the emotions he was supposed to portray getting the chance to star in this film with this cast.

The film is currently ranked #53 of all time at IMDB. This is destined to become a classic, and will be remembered long after Gladiator is forgotten.

    I didn't watch any bad movies today. Not even any good ones. I just hung out. I'll have some tomorrow. I did surf the web for a few minutes, and here's a couple of strange sites I found.

    Site of the Day: The Dead People Server. Who's dead, who's not, who's close. Who has been incorrectly reported as dead? Who do people believe dead, although they are not? Who died this year? Anything you might want to know about celebrities and death. Don't fret, Abe Vigoda is still with us. I found out that Ann Sothern just died, well into her 90's. Surprisngly, Alicia Silverstone is alive!!!

    Everything you ever wanted to know about vanity license plates. Actually much more than I wanted to know.

    Aspect ratios keeping us from the goodies!

    Aesthete's DVD caps of "A Map of the World" reminded me of the discussion a while back about aspect ratios and the differences in different film and video formats. When this movie was first released on video, my local store didn't have the DVD version, so I rented the VHS. Because (I guess) of the 4:3 ratio, what I found was that Sigourney's exposure south of the border, while just a suggestion on DVD, is relatively explicit on VHS; the picture goes almost to mid-thigh. (best seen in links #1 and #2)

    I recently purchased a copy of the VHS edition of "Map of the World". I watched the movie. I liked it. Indeed, judging from what I've seen in the DVD 'caps in the Funhouse, the DVD widescreen (ha!) version is simply the 4:3 aspect ratio matted with black bars on the top and bottom. When you watch the 4:3 VHS version, you can see *all* of Sig's "nether world". For a woman who is 51 and is already famous enough that on-screen nudity is not required to advance her career, that's damn gutsy.

    About the images...This is my first attempt at vidcapping, so please go easy on this rookie.

  • Sigourney Weaver (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)

    Corine Clery Topless in scenes from 1976's "Il Grande bluff". This French actress is probably best known by us yanks and a Bond Babe from the movie "Moonraker".

    Stefanie Stappenbeck A nice nip slip from German TV. Scenes from "Rot wie das Blut" (1997).

    Tammy Parks Robo-hooters and full frontal nudity from "Marilyn Chambers' Desire".

    Olga Anthony Very nice breast exposure from 1973's "The Mutations".

    Lisa Collins Topless, also in scenes from "The Mutations".

    Julie Ege Far off topless nudity in "The Mutations" as Julie is tortured by mad scientist Donald Pleasence.

    Linda Hayden Full frontal nudity from 1971's "Satan's Skin" aka "Blood on Satan's Claw", "The Devil's Touch", or "Satan's Claw".

    One IMDB reader calls it the "finest horror film produced in Britain in the Seventies." Believe it or not, Maltin gives this 3 stars. Sounds like a good watch for fans of the genre.

    Amanda Plummer Almost full frontal nudity from super freak #1 in scenes from "The Apartment Complex" (1999).

    Michele Carey Far off breast exposure from the 1970 movie "The Animals".

    and ...
    Athena Massey

    Peta Wilson
    (1, 2, 3)

    Scorpion does and excellent job with these 'caps of Peta showin' it all in scenes from "Mercy".

    Ann-Gisel Glass A little on the dark side, but topless, partial bum, and possible frontal nudity in "Leise Schatten" (1992). Vidcaps by Schmutzfink.
