Almost Famous

 (2000)

Almost Famous Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Fifteen-year-old avid rock fan William lands an assignment from Rolling Stone to accompany a fledgling band from Michigan called Stillwater on their first tour. As he becomes more involved with the band members, he loses his objectivity and is soon entangled in the infamous 70's rock scene. The adventure teaches him a life-changing lesson about the importance of family -- the ones we inherit, and the ones we create.

Almost Famous Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Almost Famous almost looks good. Paramount's 1080p Blu-ray transfer is something of a disappointment, but it's still a step above any previously-released standard-definition presentation. The picture is plagued by a myriad of problems, none of which prove debilitating, but definitely amount to annoyances that together insert something negative into almost every frame to drag down the overall experience. Whether some blocky backgrounds, poor color gradations, slight edge halos, a subtle but nonetheless evident overly sharp look, grain that sometimes appears frozen in place, random white speckles, sloppy background noise, a generally flat appearance, or the occasional plastic-like texture, Almost Famous definitely won't be in the running for best catalogue transfer of 2011. It sports many of the same issues seen in another of Paramount's recent disappointing catalogue offerings, American Beauty, but this one lacks the "Sapphire Series" label to further complicate matters. Still, there's no doubting that Paramount's Blu-ray yields solid details and superior clarity and resolution as compared to other releases of Almost Famous. Colors are solid as well, as are blacks and flesh tones. In fact, the transfer's steady and accurate palette may be its best attribute. This is not a bad overall image by any stretch of the imagination, and fans will still want to splurge on the upgrade. Still, it probably should have been better than this, and a remaster somewhere down the road is necessary to give this wonderful film the release it deserves.


Almost Famous Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Almost Famous' DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is best described as "efficient." The track only finds a few spurts of energy, but then again, this isn't a music film or an Action flick, anyway. It's a dialogue-intense "think piece" at its center, so the lack of sonic fireworks is expected. Still, when Stillwater takes the stage in Cleveland, the track rises to the occasion no doubt as crowd noise swells all over the listening area and the track kicks into another gear of audible intensity and energy. As the band comes on stage and the first guitar licks spill out of the speakers, the power increases again and the listener suddenly feels right there in the middle of the excitement. The track finds another moment of hectic triumph in chapter 26 as bass booms in one of the film's most memorable scenes, but the film is primarily reserved and subtly delivered throughout. Minor sound effects and atmospherics are handled primarily across the front, and dialogue is delivered smoothly and efficiently through the center channel. Almost Famous does feature some soundtrack tunes that really impress in terms of clarity and space; whether the melancholic "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" or the uptempo beats of "One Way Out," the track does handle its diverse and electric soundtrack marvelously.
