Jaimie Foxx Rocks
    #3725097 - 02/03/05 05:02 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Went out yesterday and bought the DVD of Ray and let me tell you, it is fantastic.

What is strange is that from 1955 with his hit "messin round," I remembered where I weas and what I was doing everytime that another song of Ray Charles became a hit. Including What I Say, Hit the road jack, Georgia and I remember the controvery he created when he did Born to Lose and I Can't Stop Loving You. Crossed the black blues to country was unbelieveable.

Foxx played all of the songs in the movie on the piano note for note as if itr was actually Ray playing the songs. Jaimie took concert pianist lessons as a child. Aalthough most of the special fetures are real short film clips, his meeting with Ray Charles before he got the role is awesome. And the making of the film was also real cool. There is an extended version on the DVD with the extra footage, as well as deleted scenes and other specials.

I recommend this film as a fine tribute to Ray and as I said. Foxx was Ray in the movie.

I only wished they would have showed him at the 2nd Clinton Inauguaral at Washington D.C. when Ray played God Bless America. At least I have that on Tape.

Also bought the Grudge with Sarah Michel Geller but haven't watched it yet. Had the flu for about 6 days now and am under a doctors care. I have been pretty sick but am starting to breath now.

Jamie Foxx needs to pick an area of interest.
comedy, drama, singing R&B... It's too much! I can't believe you as an honest artist in all of those areas at once!
