Review: Can Cameron Crowe recapture 'Almost Famous' magic with 'Roadies'?

22 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In one of the many famous lines of dialogue Cameron Crowe has written, Dorothy Boyd says of Jerry Maguire, "I love him for the man he wants to be, and I love him for the man that he almost is." Dorothy is a dreamer, like most of Crowe's heroes and heroines — and, at this stage of his career, like many of his fans. We love Crowe for the storyteller he's trying to be, and almost is, even though we'd have to go all the way back to 2000's Almost Famous for a scripted project where Crowe actually lived up to his full potential as writer and director. With the likes of Elizabethtown and We Bought a Zoo, Crowe fans would look for even the faintest signs of the man who had given us Jeff Spicoli, Lloyd Dobler, Rod Tidwell, Penny Lane, and so many more, and hope for better the next time out. »

Showrunner Aline Brosh McKenna Brings Logic to ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ (Emmy Watch)

17 June 2016 3:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” is an odd TV series. A comedy with dramatic elements, it’s a musical that expresses the feelings of its lead character, Rebecca Bunch (YouTube star Rachel Bloom), via original songs. The ratings aren’t amazing and the show is an Emmy longshot, but people are finding it, and the fans are passionate. It’s unlike anything you’ve seen before; the question is, how many Emmy voters will see it.

At a recent Fyc Emmy event, Bloom bounded out in bra and Spanx to perform an opening number and then returned dressed for an informative Q & A panel. The audience, packed with fans, whooped and hollered; everyone on stage enjoyed playing to the room. That’s the feeling you get from the CW show itself: as hard as it is to pull off, everyone is having a blast.

So how did this crazy show come about? While »

‘Roadies’ Teaser Trailer: “Like a Fellini Film Crossed With a ‘Monkees’ Episode”

9 May 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Cameron Crowe‘s track record has been hit or miss as of late. Elizabethtown drew limp reviews and even limper box office totals; We Bought a Zoo fared a bit better but quickly faded from memory; and Aloha was famous mostly for its bizarre casting of Emma Stone as a part-Asian character. But we’re in his corner here at /Film (it’s […]

Aloha movie review: hello, and good-bye

10 March 2016 9:11 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A mess of a romantic dramedy full of colonialistic offensiveness, forced quirkiness, implausible emotion, and oblivious masculine self-centeredness. I’m “biast” (pro): really generally like Cameron Crowe and the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

So it turns out that casting Emma Stone as a woman who is one-quarter Chinese and one-quarter Hawaiian (“my mother is Swedish” she hastens to inform everyone) was far from the worst bad choice writer-director Cameron Crowe (We Bought a Zoo, Almost Famous) made with Aloha. This mess of an excuse for a romantic dramedy is all about ensuring that walking personal disaster Brian Gilcrest (Bradley Cooper: Joy, Burnt) finds redemption and happiness, and that he is okay with his life and his choices… though why any of us watching should care whether he achieves this is never adequately broached.
