Yeah, Still Water (that was their name right?) is a pretty bad band. But so are a lot of famous bands from that era. So who cares.

Yeah, like I said, it's a little gripe; Not close to "the sketches on Studio 60 are terrible"-type of terrible though, which almost derailed the entire series for me.

But yeah, Almost Famous = the only good movie featuring Kate Hudson?

You must not like Bullet The Blue Sky then.

I adore this movie and want to live this movie. I still remember praying to God in the theater as Ben Fong Torres asked William if he'd like to wrote for Rolling Stone that someday I would be asked that question. I still haven't been.

The drums, bass, and guitars of Fever Dog remind me so much of Bullet the Blue Sky it's scary.

Then I thought about Ebay, did a search on Ebay.co.uk and found that there was a region 2 release of this version! And I bought a region 2 version for cheap. The packaging isn't as good as the US version and it's missing the audio CD. But at least I can watch it on my own TV.

Saw both versions (theatrical cut and the director's cut) over the weekend.

yes, have not watched for years but yes, good movie.

Kate Hudson is cute in it. I liked Mark Kozelek in it, did not like Billy Crudup.
Johnny Depp should have played Russell Hammond!

The US packaging and audio CD I want to keep. But the European packaging and US DVDs...

This is one of my absolute faves---we watch it once every few months. For a while, I tried to listen to the Stillwater cd, but it's just too bad.

The 'Untitled' edition is by far the best----I never watch the regular version any more.

I'm glad Johnny Depp is in no-way involved with this movie.
