    Almost Famous 4K Review

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 5 months when reviewed.

    Quite simply put, this is my favorite movie of all time, so I was beyond excited to see this was getting a 4K SteelBook release. I could not be happier with this purchase, and I love having the option to choose between which version to watch as I love both. The 4K transfer is beautifully done, and makes for the ultimate watching experience of an all time favorite. A must have for any fan of this film! Especially thankful to have added this one into the collection.

    4K upgrade worth it???

    I love this movie and own the regular version, the UK imported, and the bootleg collectors blu-ray. The theatrical and bootleg get their own 4K disc. In my opinion the upgrade in visuals is not a big one from the blu-ray. Sound is same 5.1 DTS-HD but I did notice some more bass and center channel seemed more clear on a couple of lines. Upgrade recommended for huge fans of the movie otherwise the blu-ray is excellent.

    A Contender for the Cover of Rolling Stone

    Another exquisite entry in the Best Buy steelbook collection. Wonderfully executed with artwork befitting of the film. As for the 4k UHD version of Almost Famous, it's a celebrity in its own right. The transfer is the best the movie has looked on any platform and is another win for physical media. The picture and audio quality is top tier with a balanced use of HDR for a natural palette and skin tones. The dream-like quality of the photography shines through with an appropriate level of film grain. The soundtrack is its own character and fuels the narrative. Overall, this release will delight existing fans and first-time viewers alike. Almost Famous is my favorite of Cameron Crowe's films and features standout performances by Kate Hudson and Patrick Fugit. This coming-of-age tale set in the music scene of the 1970s is a definite recommend.

    Worth Upgrading...?

    I love this film and own the bootleg blu-ray version of it. In my opinion, the upgrade in visuals is not a big difference from the blu-ray. The sound is the same 5.1 DTS-HD, but I did notice it has some more bass and the center channel seemed more clearer on a couple of lines. An upgrade is recommended only for those who are huge fans of the film otherwise owning the blu-ray is just fine as I said before there really is no big difference between the blu-ray and the 4K versions of the film. Just wish that this version came with the blu-ray disc too, that way I could sell the blu-ray copy that I own.

    Great Movie, Frustrating Experience With BB Stock

    The Cameron Crowe rock film classic from 2000 has made its 4K UHD debut, and the results are first-rate. The picture and audio quality are major improvement over the old DVD and Blu-ray editions, and there are plenty of extras to keep you entertained after the film. As for the film itself, it hasn't aged a bit. It's still my favorite movie of the 2000s by far. So, why not give this five stars? Well, I have a defective copy. The second disc freezes up in several spots despite the disc surface being free of smudges/scratches/etc. Normally, that would mean a quick trip back down to Best Buy to exchange the disc. Problem (hopefully) solved. However, Best Buy hasn't had new copies in since the disc streeted two weeks ago and my window to return it for a new copy is closing rapidly (as of this writing, 7/28/21). I know this is largely Paramount's fault for not pressing enough copies, but this short return/exchange window of Best Buy's is useless if you don't have additional stock! Now I'm stuck with one good disc, and one defective one. Thanks, Best Buy!

    Best Cameron Crowe movie now in 4K

    |
    Posted .

    One of Cameron Crowe's best movies now available on 4K. I was a little annoyed it was only available in the steelbook format. Thank Paramount for that. But regardless the 4K disc is by far the best way to go and you can only get it in this steelbook. Best Buy is one of the few places that has steelbooks in stock and has great variety. Needless to say if you are a fan of this movie this is the only way to go.

    I'm an avid SteelBook collector. When I saw that Almost Famous was releasing on 4k SteelBook I was thrilled. Honestly, I'm not huge on the cover and felt they could have done way better. As great of a character as Penny Lane is, there were other great characters in the film as well and they should have been equally represented on the cover. Cosmetics aside, the quality is great from the picture and sound, to the bonus features. If you love Almost Famous, I highly recommend this version!

    This transfer is great. I've only watched the bootleg cut because its the only version I'll ever watch. The 4k scan is very good and the HDR is fine. Its not the type of movie where HDR is going to pop out or anything. The sound is great as well. Definitely worth the pick up.

    Almost Famous. The Bootleg Cut.,

    One of my all time favorite movies. I watch at least one time A month. The 38 extra minutes enhance the flow of the movie going into the upcoming scene. The extras : that include background of the making of the movie. Commentary on how the music was made , and preformed in the movie . Was fantastic. Definitely worth it, and not just for the blue Ray.

    Good picture quality. Two versions, only saw the longer version, which was great. The lead actor was good but he was not seen in very many films afterwards. Kate Hudson is great, and being a story inspire by true events makes it even better. Lots of special features and outtakes.

    This is essential viewing for any fan of cinema and/or classic rock... and it's highly unlikely that the film will ever look or sound better than this 4K UHD release. If you hate steelbooks (you're crazy) this is currently the only way to get the film on 4K UHD disc here in the U.S. so just suck it up and buy it already!

    Great film! An amazing coming of age movie, infused with Rock n roll and a touch of love. It makes you want to be right there with the characters while the events unfold. The steelbook artwork is spectacular! An awesome retro/worn look that compliments this films aesthetic so well!!

    I love the look of the steelbook. Definitely stands out on my shelf. As for the film, it's fantastic as always and the 4kUHD blu-ray brings the best out of the sound and color. Just wish it was an Atmos track but can't have it all.

    I got this 4K steelbook to watch this great movie for the very first time, and it looked, and sounded great. And so was the movie itself, so I really recommend picking this up while you can!

    Very nice steelbook for a classic movie. Includes both the theatrical and extended "bootleg" cut, both on 4k. Excellent transfer as well. Looks like it could have been filmed yesterday.
