20 Years Later, 'Almost Famous' is Still a Golden God, But 'Music' is Tone Deaf?

Sia says sorry
Coming-of-age story on journalism, sex, rock and roll, parenthood, and the perils of trying to be cool
Kate Hudson stars in Music, which was nominated for two Golden Globes?

I stumbled across the 'Pop Culture Happy Hour' podcast when doing a search on Apple Podcasts for podcasts featuring
'The Queens Gambit' for my last post -
The Grand Cosmic Chess Board?
And I was listening to a 'Pop Culture Happy Hour' podcast this morning where they were reminiscing about the movie that recently turned 20, 'Almost Famous' starring Kate Hudson, while I was seeing all of the negative press coverage around the new 'Music' movie starring Kate:-)
Almost Famous (2000)
I must admit that I had zero interest in seeing Sia's new 'Music' movie, but now I'm going buy a ticket and see it on the big screen if I can, because I believe an actor should be able to portray any person they want to play, male/female, black/white/Asian ... whatever, Gay/Straight, abled/disabled, and let their acting speak for itself.
Isn't that the whole idea of acting anyway?
Critics and all the bullshit they sling at movies, good or bad, always amuses me:-)
Talk about saucy pop-culture and modern movies?-)
To Be or Not To Be ... Happy? :-)/:-(Cheers:-)
