As far as Arthurian takes go, this is one of the best even though it's still a romanticised view and historically inaccurate. A few dodgy scenes and acting apart there is still a lot to admire in the film.

Quite incredible true story of a French guy who tightroped walked (illegally) between the twin towers in 1974.

This superlative Miyazaki is arguably better than his much more lauded Spirited Away. Superb animated film.

I disagree strongly.

Not just because of the silent film era either. Wall-E for example.

He made more noise than that little gimp from Mac and Me, so I wouldn't say Wall-E counts.

well I'm currently watching RAY right now. and am nearly done.

Altogether a very enjoyable and informing movie. one thing Im always weary about when watching these movies about a famous musician or entertainer is that there never completely true and sometimes very far off.

I have no idea about anything relating to Ray Charles so I cant say if this movie is true or not but it entertained me and was done very well.

Jamie Foxx is extraordinary in this and from the videos on youtube, does a very good job of being Ray Charles.

7/10

Wow, you did NOT just copare Wall-E to what is probably the worst kids movie I've ever seen. Did you?

Foxx is fantastic, however this movie suffered from a lot of cliches (especially those common to bio movies), Foxx makes it worthwhile, but Walk the Line IMO delt with the bio movie formula a lot more tastefully and convincingly, without being as hokey and manipulative.

I believe I did "copare" it.

Curse my fast writing style and constant oversights.

Plus my keyboard sucks. Yeah I know I'm making excuses but c'mon, I know how to spell "compare", I'm not stupid. We all make mistakes.
