Ray Kept Me Awake Last Night.....

No, I haven't taken up with someone new; I am referring to Jamie Fox in the movie "Ray". It was on HBO last night and I started watching it with the idea that if it was boring, I'd stop and do the computer updating.

Almost three hours later, I was still glued to the TV. Ray is an excellent movie (if you can get past the depiction of heroine addiction and adultery) and Jamie Fox is a great actor. He was channeling Ray Charles throughout the film, plus the music is wonderful. I grew up with Ray Charles' music and since I do not have a CD of his songs, I had forgotten some of them. That will be remedied today, as I plan to go to Borders and find a "greatest hits" CD, if they have one.


If you haven't seen this movie I recommend you check out the HBO listings or visit Blockbuster or Netflix soon!

You been computerless since July 19? My, how time flies. I wasn't planning on forgetting you, anyway. ("Kenju, My Most Forgettable Character." Not.)

I haven't seen "Ray", but then, I haven't seen a lot of movies. The last one I saw was "Hitch", and before that "The Passion."

It's not much fun to go to movies alone, and at home I always find other things to do besides watch movies.

I should do something about that...

I watched Ray last night and was so impressed with the young boy who played Ray as a child. I loved the strength and wisdom they showed his mother to have dealing with life.

I was watching Ray on HBO last night too. Well, bits of it. I will definitely try to watch the whole thing soon. Glad that you're back online.

Welcome back! So glad you've gotten your new computer working.

We really enjoyed the movie as well. Great music, great acting.

Glad you're back. I haven't watched that movie. Loved the March of the Penguins though.

Hope, I agree. Both of the children were so good in their roles. His mom was smart to make him learn his own way in the world. I am not sure I could have done that if a child of mine had gone blind.
