Brilliant biopic...

"I hear like you see. Like that hummingbird outside the window, for instance."

Ray is a film that instigated a craze of music-orientated biopics in Hollywood, and there's little wonder considering the quality we're presented with here.

Before this film, Jamie Foxx had a limited number of memorable performances on his résumé. Suffice to say, Foxx proved an able acto... read more

What happened to Jamie Foxx ?!? I mean, since he won an oscar for this movie, he honestly hasn't done anything amazing, maybe a few decent flicks ('Jarhead ', 'Dreamgirls', 'The Kingdom') but nothing really impressive.

With this training, Ray eventually plays his way into a major deal with Paramount records and earns icon status as an American legend. Along the way, the high cost of fame leads him to ... (more)

"August 3 "This ain't no weed, Ray. And we ain't snorting no bitch. This is boy! Boy'll make your ass null and void." "Null and void, just like my life." Before I watched this movie I decided to familiarize myself with Ray Charle's music by listening to a compilation of his songs on YouTube just to get an idea of what it was like. I ended up loving it and started to watch the movie. While I did really like this movie, I can't help but feel that it's a tiny bit overrated and I feel like this m"
