the Beatles and I can die.
Mark Shaner: Good God!!
De'Sean Rouse: +Norma Brown

Smexii | FFA Maestro: This is an incredible movie. I really advise you to watch it
earthtone Lyrix: they just make these movies so they can make more money off of our deceased
black american legends.... smh movie be looking the same for the most
part... but this movie had to be the worst... never again
Claude Lebel: Can't wait to see it.
kevinmeagher55: we need to stop making EVERY african american biographical movie…Ali, Ray,
Jackie Robinson….just stop.
philip green: kiss myself
John Hernandez: awesome... they should do one of MJ
Strugglebuggie TV: THIS MOVIE SUCKED !!!
i just saw it last sunday, and i walked out before the end...
GTR King: What's the name of the song @1:49?? Not the original, the one that plays
right at that moment. It sounds slower & different.. I want that song! Lol
Veeluv Franklin: This movie is outstanding, went to see it today, this guy did his thing
channeling James Brown, he played a great role. This movie is a must see, I
recommend it to every1 that loved James Brown!!
dee rasta: went to see Ray and Whats love got to do with it on opening day. both
movies delved into enough of what shaped the protagonists and the
relationships that molded them. the acting was undeniable and the music
that made them famous only added to the thrill of it all. Besides that,
the storyline kept you interested and forced you to care about what was
going to happen next to these people.
movies like get on up, why do fools fall in love (about Frankie lymon) and
a couple of others did the opposite for me. 10 minutes in I knew I
wouldn't be satisfied and would have no desire to revisit as I have Ray &
The lead actor in get on up did fine and the music made you want to jump
out of your seat & dance but the storyline was choppy, lacked in the area
of relationship building or really caring one way or the other about what
was going to happen.. it' was like a bunch of scenes thrown together to
make an abstract movie with a sound track as its backdrop. if you know
anything about james or not, you can follow it but again, 10 minutes in you
almost don't care.
I don't get the feeling that the creators cared much about a great story
line, but more so being the first to throw out a biopic about Mr Brown.
They were probably hoping to get similar results as ray. not going to
happen & if it does it will be undeserving.
Fans of Mr Brown will like it because of the music & the guy who does the
role justice but I can't see any other reason than that and I can't see it
doing as well as Ray. word of mouth sometimes is everything.
Sandra Frazier: I was blessed to have a speaking part in this movie, and I'm very excited
about this movie. It was an awesome experience being on a live set and all.
A round of applause goes out to Mrs. Tammy Smith and her staff. She is an
awesome woman to work with and for. Please go out and see "Get On Up" it's
a phenomenal movie!!!! Sandra
MS. ILBB: meh... I may watch it... James Brown also used to beat on women, hopefully
they show this! He used to come by my grandmother's place a lot (not in
that sense lol), he and her hubby were good friends.
coporal4: I'm sorry but this needs to be said. Got DAMN some of you assholes complain
about every black movie that has come out recently. You go see ghetto pimp
ass movies, but when something is positive you complain. Blacks complained
about the movie "Color Purple" because of Danny Glovers character,
well incest and crap happened and still is happening in the black
community. I didn't hear NOT one White Person complain about the movie "The
Burning Bed" with Farrah Faucet.. Either support the movie or shut your
UNCLE TOM slivering ass mouths. This movie was a really good movie
about James Brown. The story line was solid and the music was the TRUTH.
You should be giving praise to Chadwick Boseman for his performance instead
of complaining. Some of you didn't see him in the Jackie Robinson story,
because your ignorant ass don't like baseball or you don't know who Jackie
Robinson was? REALLY.. Thank you for making this movie about a black artist
who made a difference. Ray Charles made a difference also and the movie
"RAY" was excellent. Jamie Foxx showed his musical talent and range of
acting 3 fold
Anders Andersen: where is black thought?
Kim .Fuller: He seems legit, but Jamie Foxx would've been a good actor for this movie
Michael Ralston: while this will more than likely be a great film, it reminds me too much of
Alex Ibarra: i hope its good like La Bamba the Ritchie Valens Biography with Lou Diamond
Phillips. that was a good ass movie. Cant say the same for The Buddy Holly
Taylor ZeroSixNineEight: All I have to say is... LAFAYETTE! <3
SoulVibez: I have the biggest smile on my face right now :-)
Donnie Brasco: The movie already sucks because they have picked the wrong actor. Thats the
problem with black people in hollywood. They can never find real black
actors, because black actors can never walk on the path on which real
actors walked on and still walk on to make remarkable movies
Julien Saul: What the n'aime of the song at 0:45
Blu-Ray Brandon: No matter how good films are people still crap on them, without backing
what they say. In the comment section
Claisam Vibes: Can't wait to see this.
Boat: Chadwick Boseman will not stop until he has played every famous black man
from every decade. lol
Kill3mallk3v: I am a biiiiig james brown fan I will wait in a snow storm to see this
movie. This was a long time coming for The Godfather of Soul. I hope this
movie is done and received well like how Ray was. We need A Marvin Gaye
movie Next not aliyah(oops spelled wrong!)and I meant no disrespect to her
and her great body of work but Marvin's movie is long overdue. The Jimi
Hendrix movie starring Andre 3000 is done and I hope that is good too!
Pedro Rafael Reyes Quezada: Will we see James Brown perfoming in the Apollo match versus Drago??
James N. O'Sullivan: This movie looks good. I have only one problem. I just couldn't take
Chadwick Boseman seriously with that outrageous hair. It just isn't done...
Lilith Fair: James Brown is A LEGEND and judging by this trailer...MOVIE LOOKS LIKE
José Quintana: As much I love James Brown but this movie looks terrible
As Sampson: Looks good but the trailer damn near showed the whole movie.
kelyaum: This movie should be better then Ray Charles's movie but I think the actor
doesn't really fit as it fitted Ray Charles with Jaimey Foxx but whatever
there's a JB movie
WIL SUPER: The actor they got to play James Brown is not ugly enough...cause dang,
James Brown was damn ugly!!!
