Climb Aboard The Fake Bandwagon
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Almost Famous” (2000), Be Reel looks back at an era-jumping bunch of music movies about fictional bands. This week, it’s “That Thing You Do!” (1996), “Dreamgirls” (2006), “Rock Star” (2001) and, of course, Cameron Crowe’s aforementioned neo-classic about 15-year-old Rolling Stone writer William Miller coming of age in a tour bus. So hop on, and let’s zoom to the top of those completely fabricated charts!
our favorite movies
Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
