Almost Famous Blu-ray Loses Exclusivity


As you know, Best Buy has had the exclusive rights to sell the Almost Famous (i.e. the Untitled Bootleg Cut) Blu-ray in North America since January. This will soon change as the film will be available everywhere beginning October 4, 2011. All special features and disc contents will be identical to the Best Buy release.

Some Stillwater Love


I’ve revamped the Stillwater page with some awesome mementos from the old Vinyl Films site. In addition to existing behind the scenes info, you’ll find a discography (with album art and tracklistings), a family tree, the animated spinoff that wasn’t to be and much more. Have fun poking around.

Almost Famous UK Blu-ray



I was very excited to see the UK release (Sony Pictures) of Almost Famous arrive in my mailbox today! I thought I would provide a report as I know many of you are interested.

The BD is all regions. So it will play on all U.S. machines. This is the “Untitled” version. The picture quality is stunning. It’s a certainly a significant step up from standard DVD. Your HDTV will be smiling!!!

Audio quality is also great. The BD includes True HD 5.1

Extras are slim, but this may be a rights issue overseas. The BD includes the Lester Bangs interview and B-sides (now titled “Love Comes and Goes”) from the Bootleg Cut DVD. No other extras are included (except for trailers from Across the Universe and Close Encounters of the Third Kind).

Now that the format war is all but over (Best Buy, Netflix and WalMart all announced they would only support Blu-ray in the coming months), I’m hopeful will see more of Cameron’s films on Blu-ray soon….but this will definitely hold me over until then!!!!!!
