2. "I did NOT LIKE" In response to Reply # 0 Tue Aug-26-14 10:38 AM by Nvncible1
- the breaking of the forth wall. It litterally made me cringe. - the make up. He literally looked like an old church lady. I know James laid the pancake #36 real thick, but come on. - the dancing was spotty, but that's what happens when doing the James brown has become a Shtick on its wont hat past 40 years. - the last performance, the tight extended shots on the face made me real comfortable and frankly it look like they ran out of money to fully give the impression of a real concert. -who was that that was playing little Richard? More like tevin campbell. - introducing characters/ situations that doesn't resolve...or fully
The only thing really enjoyed.
Caldonia.. That's the only performance inthe film that is worthy of a second viewing for me
Oh and Jill Scott...my Lawd.
Overall Chadwick did a great job, I got lost in his character a few times. He should get nominated.

I feel like Samuel Jackson, "CAN YOU GIVE ME MY TIME BACK!!!!"
It was a fake Ray. I didn't like the breaking of the fourth wall either. The parts where he was singing were so so so mumbled. Okay I know JB was a mumbler but you couldn't make out ONE WORD. They went too far with that. There was no depiction of the drug use, come on now. They showed one joint and some type of white powder. That's it. Once. Whatever kids he had, they just popped up here and there, no storyline.
It was slow as hell.
Ugh, I was disappointed.
