    Cameron Crowe Eyes Michael Chabon's 'Telegraph Avenue' For HBO; 'Beautiful Boy' Goes Next After 'Deep Tiki'

    You might have forgotten, but in 2011 Cameron Crowe dropped three movies after being absent from the big screen for six years: the Matt Damon dramedy "We Bought a Zoo" and two music documentaries, "The Union" and "Pearl Jam Twenty."

    5 Things You Might Not Know About 'Fast Times At Ridgemont High'

    One of the trickier genres to get right is the teen comedy. Walking the line between not condescending to a high-school-age audience and yet also not alienating them is a difficult balance, let alone making a film that doesn't age, feels truthful, and can be smart and funny as well. And one of the f...

    Emma Stone To Star In Cameron Crowe's Next Film, A Reworked Version Of 'Deep Tiki'

    Well, talk about a match made in heaven. On one hand, you've got Cameron Crowe, the man behind sweet-natured, smart romances like "Say Anything," "Jerry Maguire" and "Almost Famous," films as good of their kind as any Hollywood has produced in the last few decades (take a peek at our recent retrospe...

    The Films Of Cameron Crowe: A Retrospective

    It may be hard to believe, but Cameron Crowe is 55 today. The eternally boyish journalist turned writer-director feels, perhaps because of his alter-ego in "Almost Famous," as though he'll always be seventeen. But for a certain generation, he's been a figurehead for his journalism (at Rolling Stone ...

    5 Things You Might Not Know About 'Say Anything'

    "Say Anything" was not particularly successful on its release. John Cusack was an established star of films like "The Sure Thing," but co-star Ione Skye was basically unknown, and director Cameron Crowe was, despite his writing credit on "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" eight years earlier, not a know...

    Review: 'The Union' Is A Love Letter To Leon Russell From Cameron Crowe & Elton John

    A documentary portrait by filmmaker and avid music lover Cameron Crowe ("Almost Famous," "Pearl Jam Twenty"), "The Union" has a pretty simple concept: chronicling the making of The Union, the eponymously titled album by Elton John and the ultimate rock & roll session man Leon Russell, a musician als...

    Watch: Four Clips Of Cameron Crowe & Elton John Discussing Their Documentary With Leon Russell "The Union'

    While on the surface it appeared as if Cameron Crowe laid dormant after 2005's "Elizabethtown," the truth is quite the opposite. The "Vanilla Sky" filmmaker wrote a Marvin Gaye film (still unproduced as of now) and a "Jerry Maguire"-like romantic comedy set in ...

    All The Songs In 'We Bought A Zoo' (Yes, That Was Temple Of The Dog You Heard)

    While audiences seemed cool on the idea of Matt Damon hanging out with a bunch of animals in "We Bought A Zoo" (Vulture has a few pretty good theories on why that happened) they've been missing out a movie that has more heart than you might expect, and keeps the twee factor surprisingl...

    We Bought A Zoo—movie review

    If your favorite descriptive word for a movie is “edgy,” you might want to skip this one. If, however, you like heartwarming—not cloying—stories about decent people, and hope to leave the theater feeling better than you did when you walked in, 'We Bought a Zoo' will be a welcome cup of holiday cheer...
