Bugger I was just about to come on here and plug it! Looks fab and I for one am so going to be first in line to see Brother James - without doubt THE coolest dancer that ever lived! Not to mention The Godfather of everything really :-) Good God!

Its looks like a really fun film, his story is unbelievable we all know that, but I just wonder about that actor as James Brown, he's not real enough for James, not rough enough... maybe its just the trailer.


Thought 'Ray' was a good film also, but its not the way I'd like to remember Ray Charles.. and I think this film on James Brown will be very much the same, do you know what I mean...
